After getting into a car accident in Wesley Chapel, you might want to consider hiring a personal injury lawyer from Distasio Law Firm. Our legal team may be able to work with you to assert your legal rights to file a claim for compensation if another driver or road hazard caused your car accident injuries.
You may be entitled to pursue a settlement or civil court award for your medical bills, lost work wages, and other losses you experienced. Distasio Law Firm focuses on providing clients with individualized legal care when you hire our team to work with you. We offer to review your case in a free consultation, then explain what legal steps you may be able to take to pursue compensation.
We Can Help You Demand Compensation for Your Damages
Florida laws allow injury victims to request compensation for their financial, physical, and emotional losses. It can be challenging to estimate what your case may be worth, especially if you are unsure about what types of damages the law entitles you to recover.
Each case is unique in terms of circumstances, evidence, and negligence involved. Our legal team can review your case and explain the process for calculating your damages, then help you reach an approximate value for them. We can then use this figure to demand compensation from the at-fault or liable party or parties.
Economic and Non-Economic Damages
Damages in personal injury cases are generally divided into two categories: economic and non-economic damages. In short, your economic damages include any damage involving money, whereas your non-economic damages are more physically and emotionally impactful.
For example, some common types of economic damages include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Ambulance transportation costs
- Costs for inpatient rehabilitation
- Outpatient therapy expenses
- Lost wages due to missing work
- Lost future wages
- Costs to repair property damage to your vehicle
- Cash value of your vehicle if it was totaled and is beyond repair
However, your non-economic damages would not have an immediate financial value attached to them. These damages revolve around your pain and suffering, any long-term or permanent disabilities you suffered, and mental consequences of being a car accident victim (e.g., having trauma).
Aim for Accuracy
When you hire our firm to serve you throughout the claims process, we will document and preserve the necessary evidence to prove that the value of your claim is reasonable and just. Our network of experts will also help us calculate the future potential value of your medical care needs.
When calculating your damages, we want to aim for an accurate figure that can cover your losses because:
- Once you settle your case, you cannot pursue additional compensation even if new damages appear.
- Many insurance companies will not factor in future expenses when offering settlement deals.
- Understanding how much your case is worth can help you better evaluate how fair a settlement offer is.
While money does not make up for all of your losses, seeking damages can give you the reassurance that you are not paying for accident injuries you did not cause. A car accident lawyer serving Wesley Chapel from Distasio Law Firm can negotiate for the compensation you might be eligible to receive.

Our Team Is Available to Help You Manage Your Car Accident Case
Becoming a client at Distasio Law Firm allows you to receive help from our legal team, who can fulfill several legal obligations and tasks on your behalf while you focus on your personal recovery. Managing a car accident case often involves a team effort, so allow us to serve you and lead your fight toward compensation.
Below are some of the legal services we intend to offer you as our client:
24-Hour Customer Service
Our team at Distasio Law Firm is available to answer your calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Should you ever have a question or concern about your car accident case, one of our team members can answer these issues.
Our firm values honesty and transparency throughout the process, including answering your toughest questions while getting to know our team.
While key information may already exist in your car accident’s crash report, the information in the report will mostly be based on the reporting officer’s observations. So, there may be other evidence available to support your case.
Our team can conduct a separate investigation into your accident and search for information we can use to support your case. This may also involve:
- Contacting any witnesses who saw the accident (if available)
- Consulting expert witnesses to provide testimony for your case
- Requesting key evidence from the liable and/or third-party companies
- Investigating the scene of the accident and taking photos or videos
Traffic accidents occur without warning, which means that it is challenging to identify who caused a collision initially. Therefore, it is vital to avoid making any self-incriminating statements to law enforcement, insurance adjusters, or the other motorist’s attorneys since you do not have all of the facts of the case yet.
Instead, you can refer any interested parties to our legal team to handle these communications. We can provide catered statements that protect your case and address any notices you receive.
Representation During Negotiation and Litigation Stages
As your case progresses, you may receive settlement offers from the insurance company to settle your case. One of our car accident lawyers can help you negotiate a settlement deal and review any offers you receive. If necessary, they can also represent you in court to fight for compensation on your behalf.
Our goal is to negotiate or litigate a fair settlement or court award for your case within a reasonable amount of time. You are not alone after you decide to seek the legal guidance and protection of Distasio Law Firm.

Car Accident Cases in Florida Must Be Submitted Within Their Deadlines
There is a limited time in Florida to file a claim for compensation, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). According to this statute of limitations, you generally have about four years from the date of the car accident to file a personal injury lawsuit and pursue compensation.
Failure to make this deadline may lead to a judge dismissing your case on this technicality, which would bar you from collecting compensation. A judge may dismiss your case upon its submission if they notice it is late or the opposing party requests dismissal.
Our team can help you take steps to submit your case on time. Our efforts can be further aided the earlier you decide to work with our team, as it gives us more time to prepare your case.
We Can Help You Identify Liable Parties and Fight to Hold Them Accountable

- Distracted driving
