How Can A Personal Injury Attorney Help?
Our attorneys will stand by your side throughout the entire personal injury claim process. When you call our office, we will schedule a free initial consultation with you to learn more about your case. If you choose to hire our team, we will immediately launch a thorough investigation into the accident. During this investigation, we will:
- Work with experts to recreate the events leading up to the accident
- Determine how the accident occurred
- Identify the parties that can be held liable for your injuries
- Conduct a comprehensive review of your medical records
- Evaluate the severity of your injuries and your prognosis
Once our investigation is complete, we will begin aggressively negotiating with the at-fault parties and their insurers. We know the devastation that an injury can cause, which is why we will not settle for less than what you are entitled to by law. If the at-fault party and their insurer is not willing to make a fair offer, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit in order to bring your case before a judge and jury. We will do whatever it takes to ensure you are fully compensated.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
The value of a personal injury claim can vary on a case-by-case basis. If you have been injured, the at-fault party could be legally obligated to compensate you for:
- Medical expenses: This includes both your current medical expenses and the medical expenses you expect to incur in the future.
- Lost wages: If you had to take time off of work to recover, you could receive compensation for your lost wages.
- Loss of earning potential: If your injuries will affect your ability to work in the future, you may be awarded compensation for the income you will lose due to your injuries.
- Pain and suffering: Personal injury plaintiffs are often awarded compensation for the mental and physical pain and suffering they have experienced as a result of their injuries.
Don’t trust the at-fault party’s insurer to accurately calculate the value of your claim. Insurers all have the same goal: to settle with you for as little as possible. Because of this, they will not tell you how much your claim is really worth. If you want to learn more about the value of your claim, talk to our attorneys today.
How Long Do I Have to File A Personal injury Lawsuit in Tampa?
Every state has its own statute of limitations for personal injury cases. These laws limit the amount of time that victims have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party after suffering an injury. In Florida, the statute of limitations on most personal injury cases is four years. This means that if you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
There are some exceptions to this law, but in general, if you miss this deadline, you could lose the opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries. Don’t let this happen to you—contact a personal injury attorney right away to initiate the claims process as quickly as possible.
