You Can Afford Our Legal Services in Hillsborough County
Our team understands that a back injury can come with a host of unexpected financial hardships. We believe that legal aid should not be among them.
For this reason, our lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that you could get our services at no cost to you. We only seek our attorney’s fees if we win your case, and they come out of the damages you receive. Otherwise, do not worry about compensating us for our time and efforts.
Compensable Losses Following a Back Injury in Tampa
No two injury claims are the same. Therefore, there are no average settlement values in back injury cases. However, you could recover:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Accessibility devices, like wheelchairs
- Loss of income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage expenses, such as car repair or replacement
- Transportation costs
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Depending on your case, you could qualify for additional types of compensation.
Your Window for Filing a Lawsuit is Limited
State law limits the time for taking legal action, as explained by Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). You typically have four years from the date of your accident to hold the at-fault party accountable via a lawsuit.
Don’t let this deadline discourage you from seeking financial recovery. We are committed to your case’s success.

Our firm can help you by:
Determining Whether You are Eligible for Compensation
We can help you seek damages if another party’s negligence or willful actions caused your back injury and financial losses. Our team will review the information in your case to determine what caused your accident and who is responsible.
For example, you could pursue damages if another party injured you due to:
- Reckless driving
- Failing to maintain their premises
- Medical malpractice
- Dangerous products
- Unsafe workplace conditions
Even if you were injured by other factors not included here, you could still have a case.
Collecting Evidence of Negligence
Your claim or lawsuit’s success will hinge on the evidence we find. We must prove that you were hurt due to another party’s negligence. Supporting evidence could include:
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- Photographs and videos
- Expert witness testimony
Your medical records, employment records, and property damage receipts could also help your case.
Estimating the Value of Your Losses
A severe back injury doesn’t just leave you with medical bills; it can also leave you unable to work. This can leave you with a growing stack of bills and no way to pay them. Our firm can evaluate the financial consequences of your injuries to determine your economic damages – –meaning those with financial values.
The physical and mental repercussions of a catastrophic back injury can be immense, as well. To calculate the value of your pain and suffering, we will assess:
- Your pain levels
- The nature of your impairment
- How you were hurt
- Your ability to work and function
- Your day-to-day life
You should not have to deal with these hardships if another party’s actions caused your accident. Our back injury team in Tampa can provide legal help in your time of need.
Handling Insurance Companies
Getting your due from the liable party’s insurance company can come with many hurdles. Mainly, the insurer may refuse your claim or try to minimize your settlement. One of our lawyers can negotiate with the insurer on your behalf.
We will aim for a comprehensive settlement covering all of your present and future damages. However, our team will also let you know when filing a lawsuit is necessary.
Steps to Take Following a Back Injury in Tampa, FL
The following considerations could support your case for compensation:
Visit a Healthcare Provider
A back injury can get worse without treatment. As such, you should visit a medical professional as soon as you can. They may prescribe medications and physical therapy to better your condition. They can also provide testimony to prove that your injuries were caused by a certain event.
Follow Your Treatment Plan
It’s not enough to just visit a doctor; you have to follow their recommendations. Examples could include taking certain medications, going to follow-up appointments, and attending physical therapy.
These measures aren’t just important for your health; they’re important for your case. If the other party discovers that you didn’t follow your treatment plan, they could assert that you made your condition worse.
Document Your Losses
The following items could help your lawyer calculate the value of your expenses:
- Your medical bills
- Your employment records
- Testimony from your healthcare team and economists
- Invoices, receipts, and billing statements
- Photos of your injuries
We want to account for every loss in your case. Documenting your losses throughout your case’s progression helps us do that.
