caution or provide proper care under the circumstances. The two other

Do I have a personal injury case?
When a person sustains any injury that has been caused because of another
person or entity's conduct, this may give the victim grounds to file
a lawsuit against the responsible party. This lawsuit would enable the
victim to seek and potentially recover financial compensation for his
or her injuries, both economic and non-economic in nature. Working with a
Tampa personal injury lawyer can be extremely valuable at this time, since liability and negligence
may fall on more shoulders than you may recognize.
After suffering harm, the first step anyone should take is getting the
immediate medical attention they need.
Once you have taken care to protect your safety, you can help improve your
chances of success in your claim by:
- Collecting evidence that can indicate negligence and fault
- Keep a paper train indicating any medical attention you needed and lost work
- Contact witnesses that can help prove fault
- Working with an attorney as soon as possible after the event
Each of these steps will be invaluable in determining the type of settlement
you may receive to financially compensate for the accident and any future
issues that may arise. The
worth of your claim will differ depending on the case, so it is best to have your case evaluated
by an experienced Tampa personal injury lawyer at Smith & Stallworth,
Attorneys at Law.
