If you want the best personal injury lawyer in Florida for your case, this is what you should be looking for:
The Florida personal injury attorney you hire can and will make a difference to your case. Your lawyer should not only know Florida personal injury law. That lawyer should also have many years of experience. Scott Distasio has limited his law practice to personal injury cases for over 28 years. His experience in investigating, negotiating settlements, and going to trial will improve your result.
The truth is, many accident lawyers claim they have the experience to handle your case. The only way to really know if they do is to find out what respected independent non-biased rating systems say. Scott Distasio is Board Certified in Trial Law by the Florida Bar. He has passed a competency exam in trial law to earn this distinction. An accomplishment achieved by less than 1% of all Florida attorneys. He has also earned an AV rating by the independent Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory and a 10 rating by AVVO. These are the highest ratings a lawyer can receive by either rating service.
When other attorneys and former clients are willing to go on record and say good things it can give you the confidence to hire that attorney. You can see what other lawyers and former clients are saying about us on google, Facebook, and our Website review page.
Most personal injury cases settle. But, the insurance companies definitely know which law firms have the ability, resources, and willingness to go to trial. In fact, they often pay more to settle claims with these law firms. Scott Distasio is a board certified civil trial lawyer. When Distasio Law Firm agrees to represent a client, we make the commitment to go to trial with that client if it makes sense to do so.
In February of 2006, Scott Distasio founded Distasio Law Firm, which focuses on all types of personal injury cases. He wanted to open a law firm that represented his belief that all firms should provide outstanding service to their clients.
Scott is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer (an accomplishment achieved by less than 1% of Florida lawyers), and has tried cases of all kinds in both state and federal courts: medical malpractice, auto accidents, slip and falls, products liability, and nursing home cases. In order to be a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, an attorney must pass a trial law proficiency test and have widespread trial experience. Because of this distinction, Scott is able to call himself an expert trial lawyer.View Profile
Of course, our clients want money. But not because they were in an accident. If they could give all the money back in exchange for turning back time to avoid the negligent conduct of the person that caused their injury, they would do it. Our clients want money from the negligent person that caused their injuries to pay for the damages that person caused. Our clients also want the negligent party to take responsibility, so this never happens to someone else. At Distasio Law Firm we can help make that happen.
Many of our clients are not able to work because the negligent party will not take responsibility for what they have done. Our Florida personal injury lawyers can help recover lost wages you have incurred in the past and lost wages you will incur in the future.
Most of our clients need medical care. What makes matters worse is that the person that caused their injuries has not agreed to pay for the medical care they need. Our personal injury attorneys can help figure out what type of medical care you need. We can also help get the medical bills paid that you have incurred in the past and will incur in the future.
One of the things that separates the United States from other countries is our constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. When someone else’s negligence takes that away from you, that person is responsible to compensate you for all your losses. This includes the human losses of pain, suffering, disfigurement, inconvenience, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
Our clients could never afford our personal injury law firm services if they had to pay by the hour. That is why our injury lawyers work on a contingency fee. This means you owe us nothing unless we get a recovery. Once you hire us, we get right to work investigating your personal injury case. We obtain photographs of important places and photographs of the damages. We gather all the important documents, interview witnesses, and we gather all your medical records. While we focus on gathering the evidence to prove your case, you can focus on getting the medical care you need.
Once we have gathered everything needed and your doctor writes a report indicating you have reached maximum medical improvement, we will put a settlement demand package together and send it to the other side. In most cases we can negotiate a settlement without having to file a lawsuit. If not, all is not lost. If your case deserves it, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and go to trial when they do not offer enough to fully compensate you for your losses.
Our Florida personal injury lawyers will guide you through the process of the lawsuit, so you do not have to be concerned. Our personal injury attorneys are skilled at getting you ready to be a witness on your own behalf, advocating for you at a mediation or settlement conference and presenting your case to a jury.
Fill out the form below, and one of our attorneys will personally review your case and look for any compensation you may be entitled to recieve, completely free of charge.
