Personal Injury & Auto Accidents

If you or a loved one was injured due to another party’s negligence, carelessness, or wrongdoing, we will fight aggressively to get you the compensation that you are entitled to. The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group has attorneys and legal staff that are experienced in a wide range of personal injury cases including physical and psychological injury resulting from dog bites, workplace injury, medical malpractice, intentional tort (assault), public liability (slip and fall), and product liability. We have a policy never to settle a case for less than what you deserve, and we are prepared to go to trial for you if necessary. In fact, our motto is that, as an injury victim, you should only settle for more, not less. Our Tampa injury & accident lawyers pride ourselves on the quality of our legal work to deliver the representation that you are entitled to.

There are dozens of ways that injuries occur in our state. No matter the cause of your accident or the type of injury from which you are suffering, we can help. Our personal injury practice areas include:

  • Dog bite claims. A dog bite can leave you with serious injuries, both physical and psychological, as well as questions about liability and how you will recover financially from your losses. We can help you to understand Florida’s dog bite laws, and recover the money you deserve.
  • Medical malpractice. Doctors and other medical professionals in our state have a duty to exercise a high degree of care when treating patients. If this duty of care is breached and you suffer harm, you can hold your doctor liable for all of your damages.
  • Car accidents. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries in the city of Tampa. If you are in a car accident, we can assist you in navigating Florida’s no-fault system, as well as stepping outside of that system in the event that your injuries are severe.
  • Pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle accidents. When a car hits a cyclists, pedestrian, or bicycle, the injuries that are sustained are usually very serious, and may even be fatal. We believe that those hit by cars should recover every penny that they deserve, and work hard to achieve this goal.
  • Boating accidents. Boating is a common pastime in Florida, but also poses a risk of injuries, including drowning. If negligence plays a role in a boating accident, we will advocate for your rights to compensation.
  • Premises liability cases. All property owners in the state of Florida have a duty to ensure that their properties are safe for others; if this duty is neglected and someone gets hurt – i.e. a slip and fall accident caused by broken stairs – the property owner can be held liable.
  • Product liability cases. Just like proper owners, manufacturers of products also have a duty to ensure that their products are safe for use. If a product is defectively designed or manufactured, such as a toaster with an electrical short, a consumer can get injured. The manufacturer of the defective product is responsible for ensuring that a consumer is compensated for their injuries and losses.

When you or a loved one are involved in a Florida car accident you need to be aware of the Florida laws that limit the timeframe you have to seek medical attention and be covered by the PIP insurance you are required to carry. Many soft tissue and spinal misalignments from a vehicle crash don’t present the severity of reduced range of motion, discomfort or pain till several days, even weeks after the impact from the car crash.

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 injury lawyers at The 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 case 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.

Recovery Amount

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. Contact our Tampa personal injury attorneys for more information.

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 The 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. Contact our Tampa accident lawyers today.
