If you were hurt in a Pinellas County negligence accident, a Belleair Beach personal injury lawyer from Distasio Law Firm will review your case and explain how our team can help. We provide these consultations for free and manage cases on a contingency-fee basis. We can address your questions and discuss your legal options for free today.
Florida law allows victims to hold careless and malicious actors responsible for their injuries through personal injury cases. Our team of experienced attorneys at Distasio Law Firm can often reach out-of-court settlements via insurance negotiations in these cases. However, we will not hesitate to go to trial as necessary to get justice for our clients. Our team has the resources and experience to represent any client in a Pinellas County courtroom, and we offer free consultations to all callers.
A Settlement Compensates You for Injuries and Related Damages
The goal of a Belleair Beach personal injury case is two-fold:
- To hold the at-fault party legally accountable for their actions
- To get justice for the victim via a settlement or another payout
When we file an insurance claim or sue those responsible in these cases, our team must show how they were at fault. We must also prove that our client deserves fair compensation based on their related costs and losses, including both non-economic and economic damages.
Your Settlement Could Include These Recoverable Damages
Examples of the types of damages we often recover for clients include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future expenses and losses
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous costs
- Pain and suffering damages
If your loved one passed away because of another party’s actions, please accept our condolences. Florida law allows you to seek damages for your family, and our team would be honored to help. Wrongful death damages include medical bills and lost wages, as well as:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Future lost income and benefits
- Loss of services
- Non-economic damages for surviving family members
In most cases, the spouse, children, and/ or parents receive damages in these cases.

Affordable Legal Representation
Our team of Belleair Beach injury attorneys manage cases based on contingency, so we do not charge any upfront fees and will never ask you to pay a retainer. In fact, we don’t bill for anything until after we secure a settlement or court award for your damages. Then, our attorney’s fees come from this payout, meaning we only get paid when you do.
We Maintain a Client-Centric Approach to Personal Injury Law
When you choose Distasio Law Firm, you can trust that you have a legal team with the resources, capability, and willingness to go to trial on your behalf. While this is not always necessary, it may be easier to negotiate a settlement because the insurance companies know we are not afraid to do so.
These are just a few reasons why our personal injury clients endorse our attorneys on our website and to their friends. For example, according to previous client Ariel Lapira:
“To all people who have been hurt in an accident, if you want an attorney that will fight for your injury claim, Distasio Law Firm is for you. I won my fight 100 percent worry-free and at ease. I cannot thank this staff enough, especially Leslie. Guys, thank you so much for everything, and keep up the good fight!”
Proving a Personal Injury Claim Against the Negligent Party
Our firm knows how to investigate cases, gather the evidence necessary to support a claim, and convince the insurer their policyholder is responsible. We also have proven success in negotiating fair settlements. If the insurer will not cooperate or tries to blame the accident on our client, we will sue and go to trial without hesitation.
Negligence occurs when:
- A person is obligated to act in a specific way to keep our client safe.
- They did not do so, instead acting carelessly, recklessly, or maliciously.
- Their actions led to a dangerous situation for our client.
- Our client suffered financial, physical, and emotional harm.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
You may have a case in any situation when another person or entity caused your accident and injuries. For example, if another driver caused a rear-end crash on Bay Drive, you fell on a wet floor at a restaurant in Belleair Bluffs, or a doctor caused a surgical error at the Morton Plant Hospital, we may be able to help.
Our seasoned personal injury lawyers in Belleair Beach have experience with a wide variety of cases, including:
- Traffic collisions
- Commercial vehicle crashes
- Medical malpractice and pharmacy mistakes
- Fall injuries
- Other premises liability incidents
- Nursing home abuse
