Thousands of People Suffer Injuries in Passenger Vehicle Accidents in Tampa Bay Each Year
More than a quarter of a million people suffered injuries in Florida crashes in 2018, according to statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). This included more than 255,353 injuries and 3,135 passenger vehicle accident fatalities.
In the four counties that make up the Tampa Bay area, the number of injuries sustained in car accidents during 2018 includes:
- Hillsborough County: 20,114 reported accident injuries, as the largest county in the region and home to Tampa, Florida.
- Pinellas County: 10,751 reported accident injuries.
- Pasco County: 6,204 reported accident injuries.
- Hernando County: 2,327 reported accident injuries.
The injuries that occurred in these accidents may have included a wide range of severity. Some injured occupants may have been treated and released, with pain that requires over-the-counter medications or ice and heat for a few days. Other cases, though, may have more serious injuries that may be life-altering, and could require:
- Inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation
- Physical, occupational, or other types of therapy
- Ongoing care
- Mobility equipment or other assistive devices
- Renovations to their home
- Long-term care facility support
At Distasio Law Firm, we may understand how significantly a passenger vehicle accident may change your everyday life in an instant and impact every aspect of it for the foreseeable future. Your case could be supported by an attorney who may commit the time and financial resources necessary to seek and secure compensation you may be entitled to by holding the liable driver responsible.
If we agree to take your Tampa traffic accident case, we will handle it on a contingency-fee basis. You may not need to pay a retainer or any other upfront costs, and we do not collect any attorney fees unless we hold the at-fault driver accountable.

Deadlines for Taking Action in Your Tampa Passenger Vehicle Accident Case
Per Florida Statute 95.11, you may have only up to four years following a passenger car accident to conduct an investigation, attempt to reach an out-of-court settlement, and determine if you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit in your case. This deadline may be significantly shorter under some circumstances.
