Why Hire a Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer?

An experienced personal injury lawyer improves your chances of being fully compensated. We carefully calculate each of your losses resulting from your injury such as past and future medical expenses, lost income, physical therapy and other losses. We develop a reliable estimate of the overall value of your losses. An insurance company’s offer can seem like a lot of money until you crunch the numbers. Working through that process with a trusted attorney helps prevent pushy insurance adjusters from bullying you into a settlement that does not reflect the extent of your losses.

We thoroughly investigate the accident and identify all the potentially responsible parties and their insurance providers. In many personal injury accidents, more than one party may be liable for damages. Identifying all the potentially responsible parties widens the available pool of insurance compensation. Our personal injury lawyers negotiate aggressively on your behalf to ensure that you receive a full settlement.

Once liability is established, the at-fault party and their insurance companies must compensate victims for their losses. Our attorneys may negotiate a settlement with the insurance company representing the at-fault party. When insurance companies refuse to provide a fair settlement, Disparti Law Group will pursue a jury trial to help our client obtain justice.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Florida?

Florida sets a time limit, known as a statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Florida allows four years from the date of the injury to file most personal injury lawsuits. However, certain types of lawsuits such as medical malpractice claims and wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years. It important to consult with a lawyer about your injury promptly to avoid having your claim barred by the statute of limitations.

How Can I Afford to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

During an initial consultation, which is free, we will review the specifics of your accident and discuss your legal options. If we determine that we can handle your case, we will represent you on a contingent fee basis. You will not be charged for legal fees or costs unless we obtain compensation for you through a settlement or court award. At that time, the fee for our legal representation will come from a percentage of the final award.
