Here’s what to look for when seeking the best personal injury lawyer in Hillsborough County for your case:

Personal Injury Knowledge and Experience

Your choice of Hillsborough 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.

Independent Verification

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 to get a favorable jury verdict.

Scott Distasio has more than 33 years of experience practicing law as an expert in this specific practice area, and he is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer protecting accident victims in Florida.


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.

Lost Wages:

Many people aren’t able to work after being injured by a negligent party. Our Hillsborough County personal injury lawyers can help you recover both past lost wages and any wages that your injury may prevent you from earning.

Medical Care:

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.

Pain Suffering & Loss of Enjoyment of Life:

The United States is unique in our constitutional right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Someone else’s negligence can easily take that away from you. If that happens, that person should be responsible for all your losses.


Our Hillsborough County personal injury lawyers will be with you every step of the way during your lawsuit. We will prepare you to be a witness, whether you are advocating for yourself at a mediation or settlement conference or presenting your case to a jury.
