Overview of Personal Injury Law
Help From Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law
Personal injury is an area of law that deals with any injuries, physical and psychological, that are caused by the conduct of another person and the resulting damage that is caused. Most of these injuries are caused by negligence, which can be defined as carelessness or the failure to act with proper caution or provide proper care under the circumstances. The two other grounds for personal injury claims in Florida are intentional wrongdoing and strict liability.

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 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 lawyer at Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law.
