At Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa, each accident attorney at our firm is skilled at handling a variety of different cases. In addition to our extensive expertise representing victims of auto accidents, we regularly assist individuals who have suffered severe personal injuries from other causes.
This being Florida, it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that some of the more common injuries that we see are those caused by motorcycles, boats, jet skis, and other types of watercraft- particularly here in Tampa Bay where we have miles of beaches and some of the best boating opportunities in the country 365 days out of the year. It’s important to know that we have experience successfully representing those injured by other vehicles, including watercraft cases.
Our partners are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by The Florida Bar – a distinction that is held by less than 10% of all practicing attorneys in the state. Our partners have again all been named Super Lawyers 2019- a distinction held by no more than 5% of Florida attorneys. What does this mean?
We have an in-depth understanding of how to handle even the most complex types of personal injury cases. An accident attorney from our firm can help you get compensation for:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages or earning capacity
- And more
Hiring an injury lawyer in the aftermath of a serious injury or death of a loved one can be an intimidating thing to have to do. Rest assured, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process and answer any questions that you may have about the process. An injury lawyer who is unwilling to provide you detailed information about the plan for presenting the claim, his or her background, or is quick to promise you a fast and lucrative resolution of your case, probably isn’t one you want to hire in a first place. On the other hand, if a lawyer is forthcoming about these matters and is not shy about explaining the hurdles you face, then this is a person you might want to consider working with.
Even so, you should not be hesitant to ask probing questions – questions that can help you make a better-informed decision. Here are five questions than any personal injury lawyer you interview should be able and willing to answer:
- How many years of legal experience do you have; Are you Board Certified?
- Have you handled similar personal injury cases?
- Will you charge a contingency fee or do you bill at an hourly rate?
- What is my case worth, and how long will it take for me to be awarded any money?
- Can you describe the steps you will take to help me win my case?;
