Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Rocky Point
We routinely help individuals fight for compensation after injuries sustained in:
Car accidents in Hillsborough County are, unfortunately, an everyday occurrence. There were 27,988 crashes in Hillsborough County in 2021 – that’s about 77 per day. Call us if you’re involved in a car accident to help you navigate Florida’s “no-fault” car insurance rules.
Accidents involving big rigs cause a lot of damage. Semi trucks take longer to stop, they have dangerous blind spots, and they can’t easily move to avoid obstacles. Not to mention, they can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Our legal team has years of experience sorting out messy details of truck accidents.
Hillsborough County is expected to reach 1.6 million people by 2025. There seems to be construction everywhere you look. The construction industry employs roughly 87,000 people in the Tampa area. It’s a risky business that puts workers in danger every day. Let us send our Board Certified trial lawyer to fight for your compensation – you may have multiple potential sources of recovery.
Even with protective gear, such as a helmet and durable clothing, motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable on the road. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 582 motorcycle crashes in Hillsborough County in 2021. Thirty-five people died in those wrecks. Our compassionate yet zealous advocates will do whatever we can to maximize your financial award.

What Damages Are Available in Rocky Point Personal Injury Cases?
In most cases, you can seek compensatory damages that cover all of your financial losses as well as emotional trauma caused by your accident.
Economic damages are generally things that have an easily defined cost, such as:
Non-economic damages help compensate you for losses that aren’t as easy to calculate, such as the general stress and mental anguish you suffered from the accident.
Typically referred to as “pain and suffering,” non-economic damages can include compensation for:
- Anxiety and depression
- Loss of enjoyment of life activities
- Loss of consortium
It may feel like your life will never be the same, and it can be extremely difficult to think of putting a dollar figure on the trauma you have suffered. But knowing that you have the funds you need to pay for any ongoing medical needs and knowing that justice has been served is a huge step in allowing you to move on with your life after a devastating accident.
What Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Hillsborough County?
It depends on your case. Most, if not all, personal injury lawyers don’t charge by the hour. Instead, they collect their fee as a percentage of the financial award they recover on your behalf. You don’t pay anything if your lawyer isn’t successful in obtaining either a settlement or a favorable trial verdict. This is called a contingent fee since it’s dependent (contingent) upon your lawyer winning your case.
The value of personal injury cases varies widely – and since the fees are a portion of the compensation awarded, the fees are entirely specific to your case.
What’s the Statute of Limitations in Florida Personal Injury Cases?
Generally, you’ll have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations in Florida historically provided four years, but it was changed on March 24, 2023. Therefore, if your Rocky Point accident happened after that time, you must adhere to the two-year deadline.
You’ll have two years from the date of death to file your claim to recover compensation for the death of a loved one.
If you’re injured on the job, you could have a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim, which has shorter deadlines and requirements.
Most medical malpractice lawsuits in Florida must be filed within two years of the procedure (or, in some cases, from when you discovered that you were injured by medical negligence).
Because most personal injury cases are fairly complex, it’s in your best interest to call us as soon as you are injured and even think you might have a valid case. If you miss the deadline to file, then you are barred from receiving any compensation.
