The Distasio Personal Touch

Distasio Law Firm was founded on one simple principle.  Every client deserves hands on personal service from their personal injury lawyer.  Personal touch means we will take the time to fully understand your case and go the extra mile to represent you.  We recognize this is a traumatic time in your life.  You or your loved one did not choose to be injured by the negligence of someone else.  We cannot undo the pain and suffering you may have endured.  We can however, hold the negligent party responsible for their actions.  You deserve a law firm that will listen to your concerns and fight hard to make the person that did this take responsibility for the damages they have caused.  Whether you need a personal injury attorney in Tampa or any other Florida city, if you have questions or are ready to get started, give us a call at (813) 259-0022.

Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Serving All of Florida

Personal injury law is the same throughout the state of Florida no matter where in the state your accident or injury occurred.  So you do not need to hire a personal injury attorney that lives in your city.  In fact, that is the last criteria you should use to make your decision.  Instead you should hire the best personal injury attorney for your case.  At Distasio Law Firm we are based in Tampa, Florida.  But our clients routinely have the kind of confidence in us to hire our accident lawyers and injury attorneys throughout the entire state of Florida.

The Role of a Personal Injury Lawyer

If you want the best personal injury lawyer in Tampa Florida for your case, this is what you should be looking for:

Personal Injury Knowledge and Experience

The Tampa 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.

Independent Verification 

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.

Endorsements from Clients & Other Lawyers

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.

Ability to Go to Trial

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.

“When my family was devastated by events that we had no control over, I had no idea where to turn. Enter Scott Distasio. Scott was more than an attorney. He was a friend that showed care and compassion and was there for every step of the process. I would highly recommend Scott Distasio to anyone that wants a thorough and professional attorney.”

Scott Distasio, Esq.

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.

“My case has been a tough one and where most attorneys would have given up, Scott has remained steadfast, and ready to take on the fight. I was truly impressed to see Scott Distasio in action during my court hearing and I am grateful for all they have done for me. If you are looking for a top notch attorney who is down to earth and will keep you informed every step of the way – call Distasio Law Firm.”

Hire the Best Personal Injury Lawyer So You Won't Settle for Less

Did you know that plaintiffs receive a larger amount of a settlement with the aid of a qualified attorney vs. going at it alone.

Did you know that under 3% of all personal injury cases ever go to trial.

Did you know that not all lawyers are alike. Many have never set foot inside a courtroom. Not only have we tried many cases but a lot of law firms hire us to try their cases for them.

Did you know that insurance companies only care about making a profit. That is why they went into business.

“I was introduced to Scott’s firm from another attorney for two accidents that I was involved in, and I must say Scott and his staff were the most helpful people during my time of frustration & hardship. He will represent your case to the fullest & I am so grateful for everything that he has done.

What Our Tampa Personal Injury Attorneys Can Do For You

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.

Lost Wages:

Many of our clients are not able to work because the negligent party will not take responsibility for what they have done.  Our Tampa personal injury lawyers can help recover lost wages you have incurred in the past and lost wages you will incur in the future.

Medical Care:

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.

Pain Suffering & Loss of Enjoyment of Life:

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.

Are Personal Injury lawsuits Raising the Cost of Health Insurance?

What Happens After You Hire Us as Your Personal Injury Law Firm?

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 you 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 Tampa 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.
