While North Tampa offers great amenities like Busch Gardens and USF, it is no secret that it can be a dangerous city to live in. In fact, 146,492 violations took place in Hillsborough County alone in 2019. Of these incidents, many resulted in personal injury claims in addition to criminal charges.
The attorneys at Law Hancock understand the North Tampa community. We are dedicated to protecting every citizen who calls North Tampa home. If you have been involved in an accident where you were injured, you deserve to have legal representation fight for your best interests.
Types of Accidents
When someone says “accident” many people automatically think of a car accident. While auto accidents are, indeed, one of the most common types of accidents in North Tampa, people get hurt in many ways. When that injury is caused due to the negligence of another person, the victim is legally entitled to compensation. Some of the most common accidents that our clients have been injured in include:
- Dog Bites
- Third-Party Work Accidents
- Slip and Falls
- All Premises Liability
- Defective Products
- Poorly Designed Product
- Wrongful Death
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Injuries
Types of Damages
Florida law allows the victim of an accident to seek compensation for all injuries and financial losses that came from an injury because of someone’s negligence. The damages include all economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are those with an easily determinable cost like lost time from work and medical bills:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Future Loss of Income
- Property Damage
Non-economic damages are those losses that don’t have a set amount of money associated with the loss and are more difficult to calculate:
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish/PTSD
- Permanent Disfigurement
- Loss of Companionship/Consortium
- Loss of Quality of Life
- Permanent Disability
At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we stand ready to help those in North Tampa to recover financially from a personal injury.
North Tampa Personal Injury Attorney FAQ
Can I talk to an attorney remotely?
At Hancock Injury Attorneys, you can call us and set up a virtual appointment the same as if you were in our office. Using technology such as Zoom Meetings and Facetime, we can speak to you in a virtual consultation. Rest assured that this communication will be private and secure so we can get started on your case right away.
Do I have to get an attorney?
Florida law doesn’t require a victim of an accident to have an attorney represent them. However, it’s important to know that the other driver’s insurance company doesn’t work for you and will work hard to pay you as little as possible. You need an attorney who knows how to deal with insurance companies and can get you the compensation you deserve.
What if I was out walking and got hit by a car?
At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we know how dangerous it can be for pedestrians walking out in the community. We strongly feel that anyone should be able to walk to the corner store or to a park and not be injured by a distracted or careless driver.
If you’ve been hurt while out walking, cycling, or riding a scooter, you need to talk to an experienced attorney who knows Florida’s personal injury laws and can get you the compensation you deserve.
