What to Expect as a Tampa Personal Injury Victim
Injuries and Compensation
In general, an individual injured in an accident in the state of Florida may bring a claim or lawsuit to recover the actual expenses associated with property damage and medical costs, economic damages, and emotional and physical pain and suffering. Often, litigation involving motor vehicle accidents is extremely complicated. Retaining the Tampa personal injury attorneys at Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group will put you in a strong position to receive the recovery you deserve, no matter how complicated or contentious.
The injured party in an accident cases may recover for physical pain and suffering, mental pain and suffering, medical and rehabilitative expenses, past and future lost income, permanent impairment and permanent disfigurement. Typical damages include future medical bills that are reasonably certain, loss of enjoyment of life, and physical property damage. The injured party may also recover damages for re-injuring or aggravating an earlier injury. In order to document the damages, a person injured in an accident should keep a daily diary describing how the injury affects him or her and if appropriate, his or her immediate family.
Family Member’s Damages
The spouse of the accident victim may also be able to recover for damage or loss to the marital relationship. The claim is typically brought by both the husband and wife, and is known as “loss of consortium.” Loss of consortium generally refers to any negative effect on the marital relationship caused by the accident, and includes loss of the spouse’s love, companionship, comfort, affection, solace, moral support, sexual relations, ability to have children and physical assistance in the operating and maintaining a home. Loss of consortium can be either temporary or permanent.
Usually, an insurance company will compensate the victim for his or her damages but they may not always do so to the full extent willingly. If the other driver has insufficient insurance or is not insured at all, the victim may be entitled to compensation from his or her own insurance company under an uninsured or underinsured motorist provision. Also, other insurance policies, such as the policies of other family members or employers, may provide certain benefits to the injured person. Even if the injured person was partially at fault, the law may permit a recovery.
There are many factors which affect the value of an accident. These include who is at fault, how easily the other party’s fault can be established, the type and seriousness of the injuries, the type of medical treatment required, and the amount of insurance coverage available. Other relevant factors may include how the accident happened, the extent of vehicle damage involved, whether the injuries are permanent or involve significant scarring, the amount of your past and expected future medical bills, and the effect of the accident on your income. It is important to remember that every personal injury case is different so even an estimate of the recovery amount is not possible without knowing all the details.

Contingency Fee Agreement
Unless we collect for you, our service is FREE
People with an injury claim may think they cannot afford quality legal representation because people typically think of attorneys charging clients on an hourly fee basis for working on their case or charging an up-front retainer. At Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group we stand behind a strong contingency fee agreement, wherein the client is not charged an up front fee but agrees to give us a certain percentage of the money received if we win or settle the case out of court. If you lose, our team does not receive a fee.
We represent clients for personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. In a contingency fee arrangement the attorney is only paid for the representation if there is a recovery for the client, either through settlement or a judgment. In other words, under a contingency fee agreement if the client gets nothing the lawyer gets nothing…no matter how much time and energy was expended on the case.
