Damages You May Recover in Your Bradenton Personal Injury Claim
Whether you sustained injuries in a car accident, during a medical procedure, or another type of accident, you may be facing a wide range of damages (as outlined in Florida statute XXXVII.627.736). Your Bradenton personal injury lawyer with our firm will fight to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries. However, the amount of compensation can be impacted by the type of accident, the amount of medical care you required, and several other factors.
Depending on the details of your Bradenton injury, you may be eligible to recover the following types of losses.
After an injury, you may be drowning in medical bills. In many cases, victims are eligible to recover the cost of all medical care they receive as a result of their injury. This may include the cost of ambulance transportation, life flight, hospital stay, surgery, pain medication, and other medical costs.
If your Bradenton accident resulted in damage to your property, you may also recover the cost to repair or replace your personal items. This may include the cost to repair your car or truck, replace a shattered cellphone, or purchase a new medical device, such as a walker.
For many accident victims, the loss of a paycheck is extremely stressful. When that loss is the result of someone else’s negligence, it feels particularly unfair. You may be eligible to recover wages lost due to an inability to work after an accident.
Accident victims who can no longer work may also recover the loss of future income and the benefits of employment, such as 401K matching or employer-sponsored healthcare.
Pain and Suffering
An accident does not just impact your financial life; it can also cause stress, physical pain, and mental anguish. You may be eligible for compensation through pain and suffering damages.
To better understand the damages that may be available in your Bradenton injury claim, call Distasio Law Firm at (813) 259-0022 for a free, personalized consultation. Our personal injury attorneys review your injury, explain your options, and help you understand the damages you may be eligible for.

Bradenton Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims
After a Bradenton injury, you have a limited amount of time to pursue your losses. Florida’s statute of limitations (VIII.95.11) may vary based on the type of losses you experienced and who may be liable. For this reason, we recommend speaking with a Bradenton personal injury attorney who is familiar with your case to understand exactly how long you have to file a claim.
However, most Bradenton accident victims have four years from the date of their injury to file a claim for losses. Medical malpractice victims generally have two years from the date of their injury, though this may be extended for victims who were unaware of the malpractice until a later date.

How to Find the Best Personal Injury Attorney for Your Case
Here’s what to look for when seeking the best personal injury lawyer in Pasco County for your case:
Personal Injury Knowledge and Experience
Your choice of Manatee County personal injury attorney will be a determining factor in your case. Your lawyer should not only know Florida personal injury law, but be able to draw on a great deal of experience. Scott Distasio has focused on personal injury cases for over 28 years. His experience in investigating cases and negotiating settlements, along with his trial expertise is unsurpassed.
While there are many personal lawyers in this market who say they are able to produce results, one of the best ways to learn about a lawyer is to review a respected, independent, non-biased rating system. Scott Distasio is Board Certified in Trial Law by the Florida Bar. This means that he has passed an extensive competency exam in trial law. What makes this significant is that less than 1% of all Florida attorneys can make this claim. Distasio has also earned an AV rating by the independent Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory as well as a 10 rating by AVVO. Both ratings are the highest ratings an attorney can receive per either rating service.
Endorsements from Clients & Other Lawyers
The words of clients and other lawyers is a key part in making a decision on which attorney to hire. You can learn more about what our colleagues in the legal field and our clients have to say by visiting our Facebook and Google pages or our website.
Ability to Go to Trial
Most personal injury cases never get to trial. However, insurance companies are aware of the law firms that have the capability to succeed in this arena. It’s a determining factor when it comes to settling claims. Scott Distasio is a board certified civil trial lawyer with the resources and experience to protect your interests. When we take on your case, we will utilize our experience and expertise to determine the best course of action. If it means going to trial, we will represent you in the best way possible.
What Our Manatee County Personal Injury Attorneys Can Do For You
While money is important, it’s not about the money. Clients seek compensation from the negligent person as a way to pay for the damages they have incurred. They also want the negligent party to be accountable for their damaging actions.
Many of our clients require continued medical care. This can be difficult if the person that caused their injuries refuses to pay for the necessary care. Our personal injury attorneys can help you determine the type of medical care you require. We can also help you get compensation for past and future medical bills.
