We guide you through the Florida legal process so you can focus on healing

Every type of personal injury and auto accident case involves legal aspects as unique as the personal circumstances of our clients. Even filing an insurance claim follows different processes, depending on whether the Florida no-fault insurance law applies to moderate injuries sustained in an auto accident or filing a claim against the at-fault individual whose negligence caused injury in another type of accident. Additionally, state law requires varying types of evidence when proving liability in different types of accidents. You have important decisions to make on how to approach your case, so you need skilled legal guidance, particularly during a time when you may still be addressing medical and other needs for your injuries.

Protecting Your Rights in Florida

During your free initial consultation, we begin by reviewing your specific situation to assess your legal options and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each choice so you can make an educated decision on how to proceed. Insurance claims or out-of-court settlements may allow you to pursue the compensation you need. However, serious injuries can require victims to file courtroom lawsuits to seek the past, current and future anticipated expenses related to their injuries.

We work with our clients to obtain the evidence necessary to develop a compelling case.

We often enlist assistance from our network of experienced accident investigators and expert witnesses in St. Petersburg and throughout the Tampa Bay area to unravel the detailed circumstances behind an accident. These steps allow us to provide the clear testimony to persuade a jury of the liability of the defendants and the full value of your claim. Depending on the specifics of your circumstances, cases can extend over a significant period. However, the dedicated attorneys at Salter Healy can reduce your stress by taking on the details of the legal process.
