Navigating the Claims Process Following a Valrico Car Accident
If you were hurt in a car accident in Valrico or elsewhere in Hillsborough County, you may feel confused about how to hold the careless driver who caused your injuries responsible. Even when reviewing the auto insurance requirements from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), you may find that your options for seeking a payout are not clear on how and when you can build a case against the motorist who caused you harm.
We may be able to offer the guidance you need. We can help you determine if your level of damages qualifies you to seek compensation from the negligent driver, either through another claim or a lawsuit.

When a Car Insurance Claim Is Not Enough
In general, we are often able to secure compensation for our client’s injuries through an out-of-court settlement. However, there are some situations that may require us to file a personal injury civil suit. For a Valrico car accident, this is usually in a Hillsborough County civil court.
At Distasio Law Firm, we offer free accident evaluations to all car accident victims in the greater Tampa Bay area. We can use what we learn during this evaluation to explain your rights and determine the best options for pursuing compensation. We know the type of evidence needed to prove serious injuries, negligence, and liability in car accident cases, including the following:
- Rear-end accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Side-impact collisions
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Uber and Lyft rideshare accidents
- Taxi accidents
- Drunk driving and impaired driving accidents
- Bus accidents
- Uninsured driver collisions
- Hit and run accidents

We put our clients first, and we will work to develop your case and file an insurance claim or take the case to court if needed. You will not need to pay us any upfront costs.

Holding the At-Fault Motorist Responsible Allows Us to Recover Additional Compensation
When Distasio Law Firm builds a case to prove the driver who caused your Valrico accident acted negligently, we need to show the following:
- They had an obligation to follow certain rules or laws.
- They failed to do so, acting carelessly.
- Their carelessness caused the collision.
- You suffered injuries and have financial expenses as a result.
The last part of this requires us to document your economic expenses and losses, likely future expenses, and intangible losses. These are the damages you suffered as a result of your accident. We will use the value of these damages to prove the value of your case, demanding fair compensation. Some common car accident damages include:
- Treatment and related medical care costs.
- Lost income and benefits.
- Diminished earning capacity.
- Vehicle repairs.
- Rental car costs.
- Loss of services.
- Pain and suffering.
- Mental anguish.
We may also pursue wrongful death damages in a car accident case if your loved one passed away from their injuries. The state outlines this option under Florida Statutes §768.21.
Florida Statute of Limitations on Car Accident Lawsuits
There is a statute of limitations on filing a personal injury lawsuit under Florida Statutes §95.11. As such, we will have only four years to name the defendant and take steps toward going to trial in an injury accident, if necessary. For wrongful death cases, the law limits us to two years.
The sooner you let our team at Distasio Law Firm know about your accident in advance of these deadlines, the longer we will have to prepare your case. There may also be additional deadlines we need to navigate when taking action, based on the facts of your case.
