Experienced Representation and Personal Attention
My Tampa Personal Injury Law Firm has represented clients for over 32 years.
This firm’s primary focus is helping out clients through their personal injury and auto accident cases. I represent clients who have been injured in truck, motorcycle, automobile, ATV, boat, bike, train, plane, pedestrian and tractor-trailer accidents; drunk driving accidents, slip or trip and falls, recreation accidents, medical errors, nursing home neglect or abuse, dog bites, negligently maintained property, defective products and other negligent or intentional misconduct.
This law firm helps clients obtain prompt medical care, lost wages, payments for continuing treatment, prescriptions and compensation for pain and suffering. Wrongful death damages can include medical and funeral expenses, loss of future earnings, as well as devastating mental and emotional suffering of those who survive.
This law firm also represents individuals who have been wrongfully denied health or life insurance benefits and who have exhausted their appeals process under the terms of their insurance agreement.
Do I Really Need A Lawyer To Recover Compensation?
Yes and No.
No, because the law allows you to negotiate a settlement directly with the insurance company. But going this route is almost never in your best interest. Insurance companies invest heavily in training their adjusters to settle damage claims at the least possible expense to the company. Never underestimate an insurance adjuster. They are often personable and friendly and very good at persuading the unwary that they have your back and will get you a fair settlement; but they are professionals who advance in their careers by keeping payouts low.
They know you probably have no idea of the true value of your claim, and will often try to get you to agree to a lowball figure before you figure out what your case is really worth.
But if you want justice and a fair compensation award that is adequate to cover all of your damages, not only the financial damages but those losses in your quality of life as a result of the accident, then the answer is yes; you really do need an attorney.
