Hillsborough County is home to Brandon. It is the most dangerous large county in the United States, with 9.2 fatalities per 100,000 commuters. I-75 is the most dangerous roadway in the area. Indeed, Florida had five of the top 15 most dangerous counties in the survey of recent accident data.
The injury accident lawyers at Boohoff Law have helped clients involving various types of car accidents.
Among those we have litigated or settled are:
The point of a civil lawsuit—or settlement negotiations with an insurance company—is to make you whole from the injuries you suffered in a car accident. The law cannot make your injuries disappear, but it can force those who caused your injuries to compensate you for the costs of those injuries. Courts can award three kinds of damages in Brandon, which are:
Compensatory damages to make the plaintiff whole.
Economic damages are objective and usually easily ascertainable through paid bills or pay stubs.
Non-economic damages are somewhat more subjective than economic and require analysis to determine for the future.
They are not usually related to specific invoices or other documents.
Not intended to compensate the victim (although they do), courts sometimes award punitive damages to punish the defendant and deter such conduct. Punitive damages require that a Brandon car accident victim and their legal team prove the defendant’s conduct by clear and convincing evidence to consist of intentional misconduct or gross negligence. State law requires that you must recover compensatory damages to receive punitive damages.
Unfortunately, the insurance company will look for any way to pay motor vehicle accident victims as little as possible. They know that auto accidents routinely result in serious injuries. That’s why they often pressure accident victims to settle their case quickly – before they really know how much compensation they deserve.
Our auto accident attorneys don’t let insurance companies take advantage of our clients. We work tirelessly to protect their right after a serious auto accident. We can file car accident claims quickly, so you get the money you need to rebuild your life.

When you sue someone for causing a car accident in Brandon, the legal theory behind your case will be negligence.
When you receive a driver’s license, the law imposes on you an implicit duty to treat everyone else on the road with care. Breaching this duty when a driver causes an accident is a basis for liability.
The more formal structure for the case is:
Florida law gives personal injury plaintiffs four years to file a lawsuit. This period probably sounds like a long time, but given the amount of work you or your lawyers will need to do to prepare for (or avoid through negotiation) a trial, it isn’t that long.
Think about how much easier the recovery process will be if one of the experienced Brandon car accident attorneys at Boohoff Law’s handled your case.
