Liability in a Passenger Vehicle Accident Case
If you were in a passenger vehicle accident, you may be able to hold the driver who caused the accident accountable with help from the Distasio Law Firm. You can focus on your treatment and getting your life back to normal while we pursue a case against the careless or reckless party that injured you.
In a passenger vehicle accident case, there could be a variety of liable parties. They may include:
- Another driver, if their negligent behavior caused your accident. Driver negligence may include running a red light, failing to yield, or violating some other traffic law.
- A corporation, if their employee caused your accident in a company vehicle while on the job.
- A mechanic or vehicle component manufacturer, if their negligence created a mechanical failure that caused the accident.
- A municipality, if their negligence caused dangerous road or signage conditions that led to the accident.
Distasio Law Firm can study your accident to identify the liable party and pursue them for your damages when we represent you.
The Distasio Law Firm Puts Our Clients First
When we work together on your case, an experienced Brandon passenger vehicle accident attorney from the Distasio Law Firm can investigate your accident, build an argument that shows the other party’s negligence and liability, and produce evidence of the losses you suffered as a result.
By taking these steps, we may be able to hold the liable party responsible for your damages through an insurance claim or civil action. We may be able to avoid trial and reach a fair settlement with the at-fault motorist’s insurance provider during settlement negotiations. However, we will not accept an unfair insurance settlement. We understand the financial strain caused by suffering injuries in an accident you did not cause and the stress and frustration that comes with that. If the responsible party’s insurance company does not make you a fair settlement offer, we can take your case to trial.

Damages Available to Victims of Auto Collisions
At Distasio Law Firm, we seek compensation for our clients based on the expenses and losses they endured as a result of their accident. This may include damages such as:
- Current and future treatment and care expenses related to your injuries
- Current and future lost income because of the accident
- Diminished earning ability if you cannot return to your previous work
- Property damages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
We also accept wrongful death cases. Under Florida Statutes § 768.21, Florida allows the immediate family members of accident victims who passed away to pursue damages in a civil case. The recoverable damages in a wrongful death case may include funeral and burial damages, loss of support, and more.
Time Limits on Legal Action in Florida
The deadlines for seeking compensation in civil court in Florida are outlined in Florida Statutes § 95.11. Under the statutes of limitations set by this state law, you generally have:
- Four years for a personal injury lawsuit
- Two years for a wrongful death suit
Waiting too long and allowing the deadline in your case to pass before you take legal action could prevent you from recovering compensation via a lawsuit. If we are representing you at Distasio Law Firm, a skilled passenger vehicle crash lawyer in Brandon can discuss this process with you before we take action and ensure you meet all applicable deadlines.
