Personal Injury

Personal injuries can be the result of:

  • Automobile accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Drunk driving cases

  • Defective products

  • Negligence

  • Dog attacks

  • Slip and fall accidents

  • Unsafe conditions

  • And many more

Many factors come into play regarding the accident, its injuries, how severe the injuries are and what benefits you may be entitled to. The exact circumstances leading up to the accident, like who was at fault will ultimately determine who the liable parties are and what benefits you may get.

Florida has a comparative negligence statute which states the amount of compensation you can collect decreases based on your role in causing your accident. Here, at The Pistorio Law Firm, we help with minimizing your percentage of fault that will ultimately increase the compensation we may be able to recover for you. We take the time to look at all the evidence to refute any allegation that you may have been the one to cause the injuries.

The time frame for filing a personal injury lawsuit under Section 95.11 of Florida’s state statutes gives you four years to file a lawsuit for compensation based on your personal injury accident. The clock begins ticking the day of the accident. Thus, file your claim as soon as possible so we have adequate time to build your case and negotiate a settlement before the clock expires, at which point you may be unable to pursue a lawsuit.

By filing an insurance claim against the negligent party, you can recover all of your accident-related losses as well as additional compensation for pain and suffering. The Pistorio Law firm will collect evidence to prove your damages and the associated costs and in many cases can recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills;

  • Future medical care;

  • Therapy or rehabilitation costs;

  • Ongoing care costs, such as home healthcare;

  • Current and future lost wages;

  • Property damage;

  • Costs associated with making your home or vehicle accessible;

  • Emotional distress; and

  • Other accident-related damages.
