Tampa Personal Injury Attorney
Seeking Maximum Compensation in Personal Injury Cases
With over 335,000 residents in Tampa and around 4 million residents in the greater Tampa Bay area, there are thousands of accidents that take place on a daily basis. These accidents are impossible to predict, but they can leave a devastating wake of injury, traumatization and despair. When you or your loved ones are injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another person, it is important to understand that you have legal rights and options.
Injury victims have the right to seek justice and pursue fair compensation for the losses they have suffered, and it is wise to seek the counsel of a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in this area of law. Personal injury claims and lawsuits vary widely in the amount that will be demanded, and determining the damages and the compensation amount that should be sought requires the assistance of a skilled attorney who truly cares about you and your wellbeing.

With more than 110 years in practice serving clients throughout the Tampa area, our personal injury lawyers are well-qualified to assist you in resolving your injury case.

recovered millions for clients in personal injury and insurance dispute cases.
How do you know what amount is fair? That is where our team of lawyers can help.

Since 2006, our lead attorney, Stann Givens, has also been included in the list of Florida's Super Lawyers®, which means that he is a credible lawyer who provides outstanding legal service in his field. Before he was included on the
Super Lawyers® list, Attorney Givens went through a rigorous selection process that is excluded to a mere 5 percent of attorneys in the entire state.
The Super Lawyers selection process is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field.
Our firm was also recently chosen to be included as one of the top law firms in all of Florida by the nationally-recognized U.S. News and Best Lawyers. These organizations teamed up to create a survey of some of the top lawyers in the nation, and fellow lawyers and clients were asked to give their opinions of each firm in the running for the title of one of the "Best Lawyers" regarding each firm's knowledge, affordability, civility and other qualities. When you consider that there are over 750,000 attorneys throughout our nation, it is quite an honor to be included on this list of exceptional attorneys.
Caring Representation for All Injury Victims
We provide legal representation to clients injured in all types of accidents, including car accidents,
truck accidents, as well as other motor vehicle accidents. A Tampa personal injury lawyer at our firm is also able to help the victims and family of the victims of
nursing home abuse, as well as assist in filing
sinkhole claims. Our legal experience extends to cases involving vicious animal attacks such as
dog bite claims, and we fight hard for every client regardless of the size of their claim.
Medical malpractice cases or tragic birth injury cases require an attorney that is familiar with the extensive documentation needed in filing a lawsuit against a negligent doctor or medical facility. As such, you must make sure that your legal representative is not only a personal injury lawyer, but that he or she is also experienced in handling your type of accident claim. Serious injuries such as
traumatic brain injury or
spinal cord injury may result in costly medical expenses and long-term care, and recovering compensation is a vital part of surviving the financial impact of an accident.
When a family has lost a loved one through the wrongful actions of another, Florida law provides you with the option of filing a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death refers to a situation in which a human life is lost due to the carelessness or negligence of another person. When this happens, the relatives of the deceased can bring a wrongful death claim against the person they believe is responsible.
Wrongful death statues were originally created to provide financial compensation for the widow and children of the one killed. When a child is born but later dies because of trauma inflicted before its birth, a wrongful death claim may be appropriate as well. In the United States, 90% of medical malpractice suits involve wrongful death – many related to medication and prescription errors.
