Experienced Tampa
Car Accident Lawyers

There are an estimated six million car accidents in the United States each year. Out of those accidents, there are approximately 2.3 million people who suffer injuries ranging from minor to life-changing, such as paralysis. Nearly 40,000 people also lose their lives in car accidents each year. While these statistics can be startling, if you or a loved one happens to be injured in a car accident, you have rights that need to be protected. First, call your insurance company, and then call us. The Tampa car accident lawyers at Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group are skilled and experienced lawyers who can provide that protection and will fight for the rights of the injured.

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 lawyers 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.

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 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 personal injury lawyers today.

Tampa Personal Injury & Car Accident FAQS
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

First, you must have suffered an injury to your person or property. Second, you should consider whether your injury was someone else's fault. It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a personal injury lawsuit — some personal injury claims can be based on a variety of nonphysical losses and harms. In the case of an assault, for example, you do not need to show that a person's action caused you actual physical harm, but only that you expected some harm to come to you.

How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?

The state of Florida has certain time limits, called "statutes of limitations," which govern the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may lose your legal right damages for your injury. Consequently, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you suffer or discover an injury.

What should I bring with me for my meeting with my lawyer from Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group?

You should provide our team with any documents that might be relevant to your case. Police reports, for example, contain eyewitness information and details about the conditions surrounding the event from which your claim arises. Copies of medical reports and bills from doctors and hospitals will help demonstrate the extent and nature of your injuries.
