Personal injury law is the area of law which provides compensation to victims or survivors for harm, damage or wrongful death. The damage may be physical, emotional or a combination of both. Our system of law provides that a person who is harmed or injured may be entitled to compensation in the form of financial restitution for damages caused. The right to recover damages in a Tampa personal injury case is based on the principle that an innocent victim of the misconduct of another should not have to bear the burden of the loss.
The recovery in a Tampa personal injury case may include compensation for the following:
- Death of a family member.
- Emotional pain and suffering.
- Physical pain and suffering, if directly correlated to the injury.
- Lost wages and medical expenses. It does not matter if these items were paid by insurance.
- Impairment of any relationship with a spouse, significant other or a family member.
In addition to providing financial compensation for injured victims, Tampa personal injury cases frequently cause private citizens and corporations to change their practices. This is in an effort to prevent future injuries to other unwitting victims. Tampa personal injury cases have been responsible for countless safety improvements in and around both Tampa and St. Petersburg. The failure to bring a Tampa personal injury case, which would have the potential to expose others to improper and unsafe conduct, serves to encourage and condone unsafe conditions and practices.
It has been the experience at the office of Frank Charles Miranda, P.A. that injured victims are typically entitled to compensation when the injury could have been prevented if the responsible party had simply taken the necessary safety precautions. Many injured victims never receive compensation to which they are entitle, because they do not contact a Tampa personal injury attorney to discuss their rights.
