Tampa Bay is a beautiful place to live, work, and visit. People flock to the area for vacation, to escape cold winters, or to settle down for good. With close to three million residents and about 15 million tourists each year, people drive, walk, and engage in other activities each day across the city.
While there are many fun activities and benefits to the Tampa Bay area, there are also risks of accidents and injuries.
You might be in:
Car accidents at Sheldon Road and Waters Avenue
Truck crashes on I-4 or I-75
Pedestrian accidents while walking to Davis Islands Beach
Bike accidents in a bike lane or greenway
Premises liability accidents at Busch Gardens or Raymond James Stadium
Accidents can leave victims with painful injuries and questions of what to do next. Injured parties may not know what to do, who to call, or where to find help after a personal injury.
Injuries often leave victims in a difficult situation, as they are in pain and potentially cannot work. With increasing medical expenses and lost income, you may quickly find yourself in a stressful situation regarding both your health and your finances.
A patient’s priority should be their physical recovery immediately following an accident. Once your health is stable, you should begin addressing your financial and legal recovery if someone else caused your injuries.

What to do after a Personal Injury Accident?
The steps you take following an accident can be critical. Many people are unsure of what to do, and our attorneys can advise you on how to best protect yourself and your rights.
Stop & remain calm
Even if the accident appears to be minor, you have to stop. Check on the other parties to see if they are okay. Request assistance through 911 if needed.
After an accident occurs, you will need to obtain an accident report, which we can help with. This report should include the other party’s name, contact information, and insurance information. If there are any witnesses, request their information as well.
When possible, photos help visualize the accident, damage, and injuries. Take photos of the scene, any items/vehicles included within the accident. Request photos of driver’s licenses and insurance cards. Take photos of any injuries sustained.
Seek medical treatment
You must get medical treatment as soon as possible following your accident. A quick diagnosis helps your health and recovery and helps prove your injury claim.
Seek legal help
The sooner you reach out for legal assistance, the sooner you know your options and whether you can seek compensation. It can give you immediate peace of mind knowing that our team is working on your case while you focus on your physical recovery.
Yes, you want legal representation for your injury claim. Insurance companies take advantage of unrepresented claimants, and such injured individuals often end up with much less than they need or deserve. With an attorney, the insurance company will know that you mean business, and they cannot use the same tactics to limit your financial recovery.
In Florida, you must first file a claim against your PIP insurance to collect compensation for car accident injuries. If your injuries are serious enough and your PIP is not enough to cover your losses, we can determine whether you can file an at-fault claim against another driver.
