Some of Our Successful Personal Injury Claims

No matter how you or your loved one suffered personal injuries, Distasio Law Firm wants to hear from you and learn how we can help. During your free, no-obligation case evaluation, we will sit down with you, learn about your injury and what happened, go over your various legal options, and inform you of what to expect in the days and weeks to come.

We have helped clients win settlements for the following types of injuries and more:

Car Accidents

Car accidents are common in Florida, and with a rapidly expanding population and limited space to build more roads, the problem does not appear to be resolving quickly.

If you were injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle wreck and believe that another party’s negligence caused or contributed to the crash, we can help you win compensation from the other driver and the insurance company.

Before you accept the insurance company’s settlement offer or discuss your accident with them in any way, talk to us. We may be able to help you recover more compensation and avoid saying something they can use against you to lower your claim value.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a leading cause of death as well as severe bodily injury not only in Florida but nationwide. It is not just doctors who may be liable for medical malpractice. Anyone in a health care role, including physicians’ assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, and lab technicians, has a duty of care to patients. If they fail to uphold that duty of care and cause injury as a result, we can hold them liable for medical malpractice.

Premises Liability

Property owners and managers in Florida must keep their premises safe and free from hazardous conditions that have the potential to injure guests. If you got injured on someone else’s property, we will investigate to determine what caused your injury and whether the owner or manager of the property should have addressed the situation before it injured you.

Nursing Home Abuse

If you believe your loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, we can investigate and hold the caregiver as well as the facility liable.

Defective Medical Devices

Many people rely on medical devices to help them manage chronic conditions or recover from injuries. In many cases, these devices are necessary to keep a patient alive. If a defective medical device injured you or your loved one, we may be able to pursue substantial damages from the company that made the device or the health care provider who recommended or sold it to you.

Defective Drugs

Prescription medication is a miracle of science that has led to the eradication of many ailments, but when it is wrongly formulated, administered, or prescribed, it can do precisely the opposite — namely, injure or kill the patients it was created to help.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one lost their life because of an injury caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, we can file a wrongful death claim on your behalf and help you win damages for the loss of your loved one.

Even if your accident injury does not appear on the above list, we want to hear from you, and we will likely be able to help. To schedule a free case evaluation with a seasoned Florida personal injury attorney contact Distasio Law Firm today.
