Choosing a Tampa Personal Injury Accident Attorney

Selecting the right personal injury attorney can make a difference in the compensation you receive

At Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A., many of our clients turn to us after an unfavorable experience with other attorneys. We understand that choosing a personal injury attorney can be difficult, especially when you are in pain from a recent accident injury. There are some tips, however, that can guide you to the finding the right attorney for your legal needs. Our values are clear - we protect the injured and defend the accused with passion and commitment. 

Experience and a history of case success is essential

It is very important to make sure that your personal injury attorney has substantial experience. You should not only look for a history of successfully negotiating personal injury cases, but trial experience also is important, as many attorneys lack hands-on litigation experience. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to make settlement offers before trial that are not necessarily in your best interest. Your Tampa personal injury attorney, therefore, has to be willing—and able—to take a case to trial. Sometimes this is the only way to ensure a suitable recovery for your injuries. In addition, we handle an extensive depth and breadth of personal injury and accident cases, including:


Seek a well-recognized Tampa Bay injury law firm with an impeccable reputation

Reputation is by no means a substitute for skill. When paired with experience, however, reputation should come into play in your selection. Gaining recognition by regional and national organizations is not an easy feat. Professional honors are bestowed upon the best of the best, after a showing of proven experience. Many law firms never receive national recognition. Some attorneys spend an entire career seeking such honors and we have a number of attorneys who have received the highest possible recognition by Martindale-Hubbell, an AV Peer Review rating. In addition, you can see the extensive positive feedback we have received over the years from satisfied clients on our testimonials page and our case results page. 

Never settle for inattentiveness or impersonal treatment

Experience and reputation mean nothing if you never have contact with your injury attorney. All too often, clients come to us from other law firms, where one-on-one communication with their injury attorney is impossible. Clients are the lifeblood of our law firm.
