The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations.

What Is a Tampa Personal Injury Attorney?

As you go about your daily routine, it’s likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A Tampa personal injury attorney represents those who have been injured because of another party’s carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed personal injury attorney in Tampa can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court. Although personal injury attorneys deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes three broad types of cases Tampa personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.

Traffic Accident Injury Cases

Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled Tampa accident attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.

Premises Liability Injury Cases

In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.

Product Liability Injury Cases

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaints of injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don’t warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product’s chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.

I was involved in an accident about 7 months ago and from the time the investigator came to my home, something I didn’t expect to happen, it was nothing but pleasant. My case took a little longer than expected but both my attorney, Alex, and paralegal, Lauren, did everything to stay on top of everyone involved to bring it to an end. I got medical care the same week they took my case, were always accessible whenever needed, and were overall exceptional. Would definitely recommend to anyone because you’ll be in great hands!

Highly recommend anyone to use their services.
