You deserve payment. Our Tampa personal injury attorney wants to help you get it.
When you suffer a severe personal injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or fault, it can be a traumatic, life-changing experience. Not only do you have to deal with the physical and emotional pain and trauma, but with financial losses from medical, hospital, and rehabilitative bills, the loss of income from being unable to work, and the property damage resulting from the accident. Filing a successful personal injury lawsuit against the parties whose negligence caused your accident is a powerful tool that can bring compensation that will alleviate your financial problems and allow you to concentrate on getting well.
When you’ve suffered a serious injury because of someone’s carelessness, the law is on your side. Unfortunately, it’s rare that an injured person is offered the money they deserve without first demanding it. You need to fight for compensation, and a personal injury claim is one of the most powerful tools you have.
Florida laws regarding personal injury are complicated; insurance companies and their lawyers will attempt to deny your claim or get you to settle for the lowest amount possible, and making mistakes can be costly, so it is difficult to fight for compensation on your own. If you or a loved one has been injured or someone was killed due to the negligence of another, an experienced Tampa personal injury lawyer from the Feldman Legal Group can handle all legal hurdles, investigations, and negotiations necessary to fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
Our Tampa injurya attorneys can help you prepare a case that will give you the best possible chance of getting justice and receiving the financial compensation that will allow you to get through this difficult time. If you’ve been injured and want an assessment of your case to explore your legal options, call the Feldman Legal Group today at (813) 639-9366 to get started.

OUR PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN TAMPA MUST PROVE NEGLIGENCE
To win your case, our Tampa personal injury attorneys must show that another party or parties, the defendants in the case, were negligent and at fault for causing your accident. Proving negligence legally means establishing the following four points to prove damages to the court:
Duty. The defendant owed you a duty not to cause harm.
Breach. The defendant breached this duty by actions or failure to act.
Cause. This breach caused the incident that resulted in your injury.
Damages. You suffered physical, financial, or emotional damages as a result.
In some cases, there may be more than one negligent party responsible for your injuries. For example, you were injured in an accident caused by a truck, in addition to the truck driver, possible negligent parties may include the trucking company and its owner, maintenance personnel that didn’t maintain the truck properly, the cargo company that didn’t load the cargo properly, or the manufacturer of a defective truck part that failed. Our attorneys would look to identify all responsible parties and hold them responsible, as they all may have insurance and assets that could go toward a settlement.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
5 Questions Frequently Asked of Our Tampa Personal Injury Attorneys
How much will I get in a personal injury claim?
-While personal injury claims can range from thousands to millions of dollars, there’s no way of knowing exactly how much money you should seek in a claim without knowing the specifics of your case. Please call us at (813) 639-9366 so we can learn more about your situation and give you our initial assessment of your claim.
How long will my personal injury case take?
-The time frame for a personal injury case also varies greatly, depending on the extent of the damages you’ve suffered, the clearness of liability, the number of parties involved and many other factors. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of weeks, while others take several months or longer, and trials sometimes drag on for years.
How long do I have to file a claim?
-The statute of limitations on personal injury claims in Florida is four years after the date the injury was suffered. This is a more generous statute of limitations than those in many other states, but it’s important not to wait too long before beginning your case. Your case is best served by prompt legal action, so if you’re considering filing a claim, consider doing so as soon as possible.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
-If you’ve been injured and it was someone else’s fault, you likely have grounds for a personal injury claim. The best way to know for sure is to contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your situation and get their evaluation of your potential case.
What is the difference between a settlement and a trial?
-When the person filing a claim (the plaintiff) and the person who is named as the defendant agree to an amount that should be paid, a settlement is reached. If there is no settlement, the dispute can be taken to court, where both sides make a case in front of a jury. There’s no way of knowing for sure how a case will be resolved beforehand. Most personal injury claims are settled before going to trial, but the Feldman Legal Group prepares every case to go all the way, because we believe that gives our clients the best chance of fair compensation, even if the matter is ultimately resolved before a trial is needed.

COMPENSATION OUR PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS MAY RECOVER
You May Receive an Award for Both Economic and Noneconomic Damages
We can help you understand the damages you can seek in a personal injury claim.
Damages is a term that refers to the amount of money you seek in a claim. It describes the costs you face after suffering a serious injury. These damages describe not only the economic or financial costs from your injury but also the other “non-economic” costs that do not have a specific dollar value but negatively impact your life. Here are a few examples of damages you might seek in a personal injury claim in Tampa:
Medical and rehabilitation expenses:
Lost income and future income
Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Diminished quality of life
Loss of consortium.
Amounts of Damage Awards
You might look at some of the items on that list and wonder how it’s possible to come up with a dollar amount that reflects them. There are norms and precedents that inform an attorney’s decision when determining damages, but it’s important to know that each case is unique and requires an analysis of an individual client’s suffering.
There may be a wide range of settlement amounts possible to recover in a successful personal injury case, from the thousands to millions of dollars, depending on the individual circumstances of the case. In general, the greater and more permanent the injury and its costs, the more you will seek in a claim.
Some factors that go into determining settlement amounts include:
The extent, seriousness, and permanence of your injuries
Whether you will need continuing care
Your actual costs for medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage
Your age, family situation, and earning capacity
The availability of insurance and assets to go toward a settlement
The inclination of a particular judge and jury
The skill of your attorney in negotiating, building, and presenting your case
At the Feldman Legal Group, our personal injury lawyers make sure we understand the full scope of an injury’s impact on your life. We’ll work with you to find out how much you deserve, and we’ll be relentless in getting you compensation that reflects your struggles. We know that these cases are about much more than payment.

We don’t take it easy on insurance companies. If our client has been offered a raw deal, we aggressively pursue the payment they deserve.
We’ve established a reputation as fierce advocates for our clients, so the insurance companies already know that we won’t settle for less than our clients deserve.
Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re injured and are concerned about dealing with insurance companies…
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you should report the injury and accident to your insurance company as soon as possible.
Cooperate with your insurance company to the best of your ability.
You DO NOT need to accept the first offer your insurance company makes you. It’s possible to negotiate a fairer deal.
If contacted by someone else’s insurance company, you SHOULD NOT speak to them. They want to lessen the amount they offer you, and they’ll use your words against you.
Tell any insurance company that is not your own to speak to your attorney.
Let our personal injury lawyers deal with the insurance companies. We know the tricks they use to lessen or deny the payment you’re entitled to. Contact the Feldman Legal Group today to speak to our team.
