How to Find the Best Personal Injury Lawyer in Wesley Chapel
If you are looking for the best personal injury lawyer in Wesley Chapel, or any other city in Florida, there are certain attributes you should look for. Below is a list of attributes the law firm you hire should have:
Personal Injury Experience: It’s not good enough to hire a lawyer that practices many different types of law. Personal injury law has become so complicated and specialized that you need a lawyer that does nothing else.
Independent Verification: Many lawyers claim they are the best. But that might just be marketing hype. To find out, see what independent rating systems are saying about the law firm you want to hire.
Endorsements from Others: You should not hire a lawyer just because a former client or lawyers in the community are saying good things. But it definitely should be part of your decision on what lawyer to hire.
Ability to go to Trial: Personal injury cases rarely go to trial. In fact, upwards of 95% of all cases are settled before trial. But the insurance companies know which law firms know how to try your case and which law firms do not. If the lawyer you hire does not have the ability to go to trial, you will not get full value for your case.

Damages You May Recover After a Personal Injury Accident
While there is no way our team can estimate the damages, you may recover without reviewing the details of your case, some common types of damages that victims have recovered in personal injury cases include:
- Medical expenses, including ambulance rides, surgical procedures, anesthesia costs, doctor’s examinations, medication, and physical therapy costs
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident
- Lost wages from any time you have spent away from work due to your injury
- Future wages if you cannot return to work for some time or your earning potential was affected by your accident
- Pain and suffering, including emotional distress, disfigurement, or dismemberment
If your loved one did not survive the accident or passed away later because of the severity of their injuries, you have our heartfelt condolences. We know the last thing you might be thinking about right now is recovering compensation, but it can help you stay afloat while you and your family are grieving. If another party caused your loved one’s fatal injuries, you may be entitled to damages through a wrongful death lawsuit. These damages can cover:
- Expenses you incurred providing care to the deceased before they passed
- Lost wages from time off work caring for the now deceased
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of support and protection
- Loss of companionship
These are just a few of the possible damages you may recover as a result of your accident. You may be entitled to these and others. Call Distasio Law Firm at (813) 259-0022 today. Once we have investigated your accident, we will have a better idea of your case’s value.
How Florida’s Statute of Limitations Can Impact Your Personal Injury Claim
Florida Statute of Limitations generally requires plaintiffs to file lawsuits for damages caused by personal injury accidents within four years of their injury. If you lost your loved one due to another’s negligence, you generally have two years from the date of their death to pursue damages.

How a Wesley Chapel Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
We understand that you are likely in pain and trying to heal from your injuries, which is why we are here to take the burden off your shoulders and guide you through the complex process of filing a personal injury claim.
Here are a few specific ways we can help.
Establish Negligence and Liability
In every personal injury case, we must prove that the four elements of negligence exist:
- Breach of duty
We must show that the at-fault party had a duty to conduct themselves—or maintain their property—with reasonable care. We must show that they breached that duty and that their breach of duty not only caused the accident but also injured you.
To prove these things, we conduct a thorough investigation into the details of your case, gathering evidence like police reports, surveillance video or traffic camera footage, and medical records. We may also hire accident scene reconstruction experts to recreate the moments leading up to a collision in order to prove liability.
Calculate the Value of Your Case
We will gather receipts, medical bills, and employment records that display lost wages to show the full extent of your financial losses. We will use these as well as your medical records and statements from your physicians to calculate the value of your case, including the cost of your pain and suffering. This will help us determine what a fair settlement in your case would look like.
By investigating your case and calculating your total losses, we can build a strong case seeking damages to the fullest extent of your injuries. We will negotiate with a third-party insurer or the at-fault party’s lawyer to reach a fair settlement. If one cannot be reached, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial and fight for your rights at court.
