THE PARTNER YOU WANT
Everything we do is with that singular purpose in mind. If a client has been injured by someone else, we will do everything we can to make sure they get the best possible medical care at little or no expense to them. Our firm is unique; we are committed to our community and our clients with a level of legal expertise that is among the highest in the area.
When someone has been seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence, the effect can be nothing short of devastating. Regardless of the reason for your injury, if someone else caused it, the only way you can recover for your medical bills and other losses is through a personal injury claim.
We handle auto accidents, slip and falls, work related auto accidents, defective consumer products or just about anything else. We focus on providing our clients with the best possible results-driven service. We believe that people who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence should only have to work on getting well.
People who have been seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence can’t be expected to go through the justice system on their own. They need as much help as they can to recover everything to which they are entitled from responsible parties. Personal injury cases in Florida tend to be very complex and very difficult at times. In part, this is because the people who should be required to pay for their negligence will usually refuse and they will vigorously defend themselves.
The injured party needs a Personal Injury Attorney who will work hard to prove several things to the insurance companies or, quite possibly, a judge or jury. Your personal injury attorney will have to be able to prove that the injuries you’ve sustained were caused by that particular accident, that the actions of those responsible parties violated their legal duty to exercise reasonable care and that, except for the actions of the responsible party, no accident would have happened and you would not be injured.
Personal injury lawsuits have deadlines for filing called the statute of limitations. For most Florida personal injury cases, the limit for filing claims is four years, but there are several factors that can make that limit either longer or shorter. Also, Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means a judge or jury can assign a level of fault to each party.
Regardless of where it happens, when you are injured in any type of motor vehicle accident, you need legal help to get what you are entitled to from those responsible. Negligent parties and their insurance companies will almost always try to limit the payout, which means they will try to avoid as much responsibility as they possibly can.
Insurance companies increase profits by limiting payouts and trucking companies and bus operators rely heavily on their reputation for customers and increased profits. In any motor vehicle case, everyone has a financial motive for avoiding responsibility, so that’s what they do.
There are many factors to consider in every auto accident case and the injured party in an auto accident is usually not able to negotiate on their own with the high-powered attorneys the insurance companies and other parties will use. You will be at an automatic disadvantage without an experienced Auto Accident Attorney on your side. As with all personal injury cases, there are statutes of limitations to deal with, as well as the same elements of proof that must be met in all personal injury cases.
In Florida, auto accident cases tend to be extremely complex and potentially very difficult. They tend to be brought by people who have been injured due to the wrongful or negligent conduct of another driver, but many auto accident cases can involve many other parties, depending on the circumstances.
For example, if the vehicle that hit you was a large truck, the driver may be responsible, but the trucking company may also be a party. If the vehicle that hit you was somehow defective, the manufacturer of that vehicle may also be a party. If the person driving the vehicle that injured you was drunk, others may also be responsible parties in some cases, such as a bartender who over-served or someone who was in a position to prevent them from getting behind the wheel and failed to do so.
Regardless of where you live in the Tampa Bay region, including Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, and Hernando Counties, we look forward to helping you make the best of your situation.
