The Tampa area is crowded and getting more so. Residents are increasing, and so are tourists. All these extra people mean more cars on the roads and more accidents. The tourists often drive rented cars they don’t know well on unfamiliar streets. All of this just exponentially increases the potential for and the number of accidents.
Living in such a dangerous road environment, you or a loved one may have suffered a severe injury or death in Tampa. Accidents can happen anywhere – from I-75 to residential streets in the Channel District. You might be heading to work, taking your kids to the beach, or going shopping, and you might end up in the emergency room of Tampa General Hospital due to crash injuries.

In Florida, car accident claims usually involve personal injuries resulting from negligence. You will begin by filing an insurance claim with your no-fault insurance company and, if you meet the requirements, with the at-fault driver’s insurance company as well. Always have an attorney handle the process, whether filing a no-fault claim or fault-based claim.
A case citing negligence as the basis of liability requires that you prove.
This might seem straightforward, but proving negligence and liability for a crash can be anything but simple. You want a legal professional with car accident claim experience handling this process from the very start.
The Tampa area has a huge percentage of the state’s car accidents. A recent year saw more than 24,000 crashes causing at least 16,450 injuries.
These car accidents cause many utterly devastating and life-changing physical injuries, including:
Our Tampa car accident lawyers handle claims involving a wide range of injuries, and you should never assume your injury is too serious or minor to reach out to our firm for help.
You can recover damages for all the different losses you suffer in a car accident.
The major damages you can recover include:
Each damage you claim requires evidence. Lost wages and loss of earning capacity, for example, require the documents showing what you used to earn and have missed so far.
Loss of earning capacity will also require expert testimony to prove, had you not suffered an injury, what you would have earned, what promotions and raises you may have received, and how inflation might affect your income and savings.
For expenses like long-term medical costs and rehabilitation, as well as assistive care, you will need expert medical testimony. Testimony will establish how long you will need care and its costs.
Rehabilitation involves service personnel, paid for by the session, and may require that you purchase equipment to aid in your rehab or make your home more user-friendly for your post-accident condition.
For emotional expenses like depression, other mood disorders, and loss of cognitive function, psychiatric expert testimony is necessary. Psychiatric therapy is expensive and can take years to work.
Trying to recover from the loss of executive function takes psychological therapy and may never be fully recovered. These damages require long-term treatment and rehabilitation and may never go away. Their impact on your life can be equally intractable.
If you’re concentrating on getting back to normal after you or a loved one survived a Florida car accident, you need someone to fight by your side.

There are two ways of looking at the damages you can recover in a car accident. First, there are the easy-to-prove objective economic damages. Second, the more subjective non-economic damages include things like pain and suffering. Finally, and very rarely, there are punitive damages that are usually only available in Florida for intentional misconduct or conduct showing a reckless disregard for the safety of others.
Unlike many states that give you only two years, Florida allows four years for a personal injury lawsuit. Don’t fool yourself that this is a lot of time, however. You or your attorney will need to gather records, identify defendants, and, with luck and skill, negotiate a settlement.
Sadly, even after your attorney files a lawsuit, a civil case in Florida usually takes time to get to trial. Bringing an attorney in on the case right away can make this process a lot less painful. Never wait to reach out for legal help from our Tampa car accident lawyers.
