You might be entitled to financial compensation if you were injured in a car accident. You could pursue a settlement or court award from another party involved in your collision. However, you must first prove they caused the crash.
A Tampa accident reconstruction lawyer from our firm can help you do this using various methods, including hiring a reconstruction expert who can testify about how the collision occurred. Contact our Tampa personal injury lawyer firm today for a free case evaluation.
How an Accident Reconstruction Professional Can Help With Your Case
Over 90% of vehicle accidents are due to driver error, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This means that someone involved in your collision likely made an error, and they could be liable.
You may be eligible to recover the costs of your medical bills and other motor vehicle accident-related costs from another driver. However, you must have evidence to show they were responsible for causing your accident, injuries, and related expenses.
If you work with our firm, we can help you prove that the person who caused your crash acted negligently, which led to your injuries. Sometimes this means working with an accident reconstruction specialist.
Reconstructing the Accident
Crash reconstruction experts use information from an accident scene to determine why and how a car ortruck accident occurred. This evidence may include the following:
- Physical evidence
- Video Footage
- Audio recordings
- Witness testimony
Accident reconstruction teams apply knowledge of the principles of physics to this evidence and a wider range of crash site data. Using these methods, crash reconstruction specialists can piece together the cause of:
- Rollover accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Side impact collisions
- Crashes involving motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians
- 18-wheeler accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Single-vehicle accidents
Testifying in Your Florida Case
The testimony of an accident reconstruction expert can support your insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. We can use this as evidence that another driver caused your crash. If the other motorist was driving a commercial truck, you might have a case against the trucking company.
By bringing an expert as testimony, we can accurately portray the accident and the true value of your damages, such as medical expenses and pain and suffering. We’ll be able to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
Vehicle Defects and Dangerous Roadways
Car wrecks are not always the fault of another driver. In some cases, the cause of a crash may be traced to problems with the vehicles involved or the roadway. A reconstruction expert can help us prove your collision was due to the following:
- Defective vehicle design
- Faulty brakes
- Faulty tires
- Engine problems
- Dangerous road design
- Poor road maintenance
- Lack of ice and snow removal
- Defective traffic signal
- Lack of proper road signs
- Inadequate roadway lighting
Whether the liable party is a negligent driver, a trucking company, or a public entity, we are here to help you pursue compensation.

Forms of Financial Recovery You Could Pursue
You should not get stuck paying for bills and other damages you did not cause. A personal injury attorney with our law firm can help you fight for the awards you need to heal and get back to your life.
You could seek compensation for the following:
The cost of medical care can add up fast. You may have bills for emergency treatment, hospitalizations, and surgical procedures. Severe injuries often require follow-up care, including physical therapy and other rehabilitation services.
You might need mobility aids, medications, medical equipment, and nursing care. We can help you seek awards to pay for these and other necessary accident-related medical needs.
Pain and Suffering
The trauma from a crash and the pain and stress from your physical injuries can lead to depression, anxiety, insomnia, and other mental health issues. The accident may have left you significantly scarred, paralyzed, or unable to work.
In that case, you can seek awards to compensate you for the impact this may have on your future quality of life. We can consult with your healthcare providers and possibly other medical experts to determine the full extent of your damages.
If you cannot work because of your injuries, your missed paycheck is not your fault. We can help you seek compensation for lost wages. You may also be able to pursue damages for loss of future income if your injuries leave you unable to work or return to your old job.
After an auto collision, you’ve likely sustained injuries, but your car and personal belongings may have also been damaged. You can seek compensation to pay for your vehicle or other personal property damaged during the crash.
Personal property like cell phones and other electronics, luggage, and car seats are some common pieces of personal property for which you can get compensation. When you meet with one of our experienced attorneys in Tampa, we can determine which damaged property may qualify for compensation.
Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one lost their life because of injuries suffered in a collision, you might be able to seek wrongful death damages. This could include medical costs associated with their injuries and funeral and burial costs.
According to Florida Statute § 768.21, eligible family members may also seek compensation for losing their loved one’s financial support, services, guidance, and companionship.
If you suffered losses from a car accident, we could help with your case. We can file a wrongful death claim so you can recover the losses you and your family have experienced.

Filing Insurance Claims or Personal Injury Lawsuits
You generally have two options for pursuing compensation. The first is with an insurance claim against the at-fault car or truck driver.
According to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV), all drivers must have a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance and liability insurance to pay for accidents they cause.
Auto Accident Claims
Your PIP benefits may not be enough to pay for your injuries, and they do not include awards for other expenses, such as property damages and pain and suffering. We can help you file a liability claim against the other driver.
We will work to negotiate an advantageous settlement for your claims. However, insurance companies sometimes play hardball. But since our Tampa accident reconstruction lawyers have extensive experience working with accident reconstructionists, we can fight for you to receive a settlement that matches your expenses.
We can gather evidence to reconstruct the scene and demonstrate the liable parties’ actions. Instead of just explaining evidence like other lawyers typically do, we can provide a visual aid to the insurance adjuster. The second way is to file a lawsuit. Our attorneys can help you file a lawsuit and take your case to court.
Personal Injury Lawsuits in Florida
Keeping claim payments low improves insurance companies’ profit margins. If they deny your claim or refuse to offer you a fair settlement, you may have the right to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
Our team of personal injury lawyers is familiar with the courtroom, and we’re ready to take your case to a judge or jury if we have to. However, you must remember that you are not guaranteed a settlement as you would be through an insurance claim. But going to court does give us the advantage of having more time to build a strong case.
