“No Win, No Fee. Unless We Win Your Case,
You Don’t Pay us a Penny”
Hi, my name is Scott Distasio, I am the managing partner and leading auto accident attorney here at Distasio Law Firm. If you have been involved in an accident or have suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, then I want to help you with a FREE Consultation. My team and I will work tirelessly to get you the maximum compensation that you deserve. If we do not win your case, you pay us nothing.
What separates me from most other attorneys, is that I am a Board Certified Trial Attorney (an accomplishment achieved by less than 1% of Florida lawyers). What does this means to you? The truth is, most attorneys never step a foot inside a courtroom. Their entire goal is to settle the case and move on. The problem is that when the other side knows they are dealing with a lawyer who isn’t likely to take them to trial or have the experience necessary to win in a courtroom, they will likely have the upper hand at the negotiation table. This could mean less than a desirable outcome for you. Lucky for you, the other side hates when they see my name as the Plaintiff’s attorney. Timing is extremely important. The quicker you get organized and call us, the better the outcome of your case will be. You have zero to lose, call us right now for a FREE Consultation.

Testimonials & Case Results
In excess of 7 million dollar verdict | Pinellas County, Florida | Clearwater Beach
A Seadoo boat owner took her friends out for a pleasure trip in the ocean off of Clearwater. Dolphins began jumping around the boat while it was in a channel. The boat owner stopped the boat so everyone could watch the dolphins. Our client thought the boat was in deep water because the dolphins had to have enough depth to jump. He therefore dove head first into the water as he had done on several other occasions in the presence of the boat owner. Unfortunately, several minutes had gone by before he decided to dive off the boat. During that time a strong current caused the boat to drift into shallow water. The murkiness made it look like it was still in deep water. Our client hit his head on the bottom causing burst fractures in his neck and spine. His spinal cord was permanently damaged. As a result he is a quadriplegic. We retained an expert on boat safety. He testified at trial that the owner of the boat was negligent because she did not teach her passenger the proper way to enter the water from a boat is feet first, she did not anchor the boat, she did not keep a look out for the drift of the boat, and she did not warn that the boat had drifted out of the channel markers.
“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.

3 Million dollar settlement | Pinellas County, Florida | Clearwater
Our clients wife was working in a factory that makes batteries. When the battery paper was running out, her supervisor taught her to thread the machine with new battery paper while the machine was running. While threading the machine with new battery paper, her hair became entangled in the moving parts of the machine pulling her scalp off her head causing her death. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed alleging the machine was negligently designed, the guard gates were recklessly left off the machine, and the machine was recklessly allowed to run while changing paper in order to produce more batteries. The company had been cited in the past for having the guard gate off in the exact location where the woman’s hair became entangled in the machine. In addition, employees testified the guard gate had been off on this occasion for quite some time and that management knew it. Lastly, the supervisor testified that he taught the employee to keep the machine running while changing the paper so there would be no down time and he could meet quota for the number of batteries to be produced each day. The damages sought included economic damages for the estate and pain and suffering damages for the woman’s husband and three children.
“Scott came to my house soon after I called the firm and answered all of my emails and calls promptly. I received my maximum settlement very quickly. I would highly recommend.

$12 million verdict | Hillsborough County, Florida | Tampa
The husband of our client was shot and killed outside a bar. He was trying to stop a fight that began in the bar parking lot. We filed a wrongful death suit against the bar alleging that previous problems on the property put the bar on notice it should have had better security, and it should have prevented and or broken up the fight. The damages awarded in the verdict to the man’s wife and young child included pain and suffering and economic damages.
“Scott Distasio and staff are extremely kind, understanding and very knowledgeable. My case was resolved much to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend The Distasio Law Firm.”
Marion Turner – Client
In excess of $1.49 million verdict | Sarasota County, Florida | Sarasota
Our client was riding his bicycle down a residential street when he was struck by a car. The defense hired an expert witness to testify our client was riding the opposite direction of traffic and was riding in the wrong place on the road. We were able to find a witness that testified he saw the accident, that the defense expert was wrong, and in fact our client was riding with traffic in the proper lane position when he was hit. He suffered from multiple broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a broken clavicle, and shoulder trauma. He underwent a shoulder surgery and two surgeries to repair his clavicle. He still suffers from chronic pain in his shoulder and ribs and can no longer ride his bike. A jury awarded him over $1.49 for past and future medical bills and pain and suffering.
“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.”
Dan Houle – Client
1 million dollar settlement | Tampa, Florida | Hillsborough County
Our client was driving her car in the lane closest to the curb. There were three lanes of travel in her direction. Traffic blocked the view of her car by oncoming vehicles. A truck driving in the lane next to our client stopped and waived a driver going in the opposite direction to turn in front of it. The driver turned in front of the truck, continued through our client’s lane without stopping, and collided with our client’s car. The car accident made our clients preexisting back injury much worse. Her physicians testified her back pain after the accident was caused by the car accident. She underwent spine fusion surgery for her lower back. The surgery was not completely successful because she was still in pain and needed a fentanyl pain patch on a daily basis. The case settled on the second day of trial after our experts testified.
“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.”

In excess of $480,000.00 dollar verdict | Pinellas County, Florida | Tarpon Springs
Our client stopped her Ford Explorer SUV behind a school bus so children could cross. A woman driving over 60 miles an hour in a van failed to stop for the school bus and slammed into the back of our client’s vehicle. Our client herniated a disc in her neck at C5-6, tore the rotator cuff and labrum in her shoulder, developed a hematoma on her thigh and damaged the TMJ joint in her jaw. She underwent neck surgery to repair the herniated disc and fuse her spine, two shoulder surgeries to repair her shoulder, and a surgery to drain the blood from the hematoma on her thigh. The jury awarded her damages for lost wages, past and future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Scott, Jessica and Yolanda are very nice people. Who gave exceptional service. The entire process was smooth with no stress what so ever. I was assured step by step what was being handled by who and they delivered. My medical bills were also lowered. I highly recommend their services.
Erica Russell – Client
$225,000.00 settlement | Tampa, Florida | Hillsborough County
Our client was driving her car west on Linebaugh Ave. when a car violated her right of way by driving across her lane of travel to cross the road. Our client honked her horn and slammed on the breaks but could not avoid the collision. She T-boned the other car with her hand still on the horn. When her airbag deployed it broke her arm, her thumb and detached the ligament connected to her thumb. She underwent an open reduction and internal fixation surgery of her arm and reattachment surgery of her ligament. She also underwent a wrist surgery some time later.
Personal service, Great attitudes!!!
I have never met a better lawyer and team!!! Even my surgeon wants to work with him “anytime”!
To be treated as a person, not a number, with a personal caring lawyer is almost unheard of anymore!
Scott and Leslie are WONDERFUL!!
Ivy Wright – Client
$125,000.00 settlement | Sarasota County, Florida | Sarasota
Our client was stopped in traffic when the car behind him failed to stop. The collision caused a herniated disc in our client’s neck. He ultimately underwent spinal neck fusion surgery. The defense claimed he had a preexisting degenerative condition in his neck and that the auto accident did not cause the need for neck surgery.
