The Capaz Law Firm has first-hand knowledge of the ways in which a motor vehicle accident can impact the quality and enjoyment of your life.

If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a car accident, it is in your best interest to consult with a Tampa auto accident attorney soon after the accident.

Auto accidents can cause permanent personal injuries. If left untreated or if treated improperly, injuries and pain from automobile accidents can last for extended periods of time, often resulting in significant pain and discomfort, as well as limitations in a person’s physical activities. It is very important for car accident victims to seek proper medical attention if they have been injured as a result of an accident.

If you have been in an accident, it is critical that you consult with a Tampa accident attorney as soon as possible. Tampa car accident attorney Dereck Capaz will discuss your potential claim and available options, as well as work with the at-fault party’s insurance company to make sure all of your personal and legal needs are handled effectively.

Tampa Accident Lawyer to Aggressively Pursue Your Case

Dereck Capaz, a Tampa personal injury lawyer, spent over four years of his legal career defending insurance companies and large corporations. Through his litigation and trial work as a defense attorney, he learned how insurers evaluate and defend claims, as well as the circumstances under which settlements will be paid. If you have been injured, it is in your best interests to consult with a Tampa attorney who is willing to aggressively pursue your claim.

The insurance company for the responsible party will initiate an investigation immediately. It is important to know that insurance adjusters often minimize the value of claims for purposes of limiting the injured person’s amount of recovery. It is not uncommon for some insurance adjusters to contact injured parties within hours of an automobile accident and attempt to obtain recorded statements regarding the extent of the involved injuries. This is one tactic that is used to gain an unfair advantage over the injured party with respect to the extent of his injuries. This is despite the fact that many injuries do not manifest until several days or weeks after an accident.

The Capaz Law Firm will help to guide you through the legal and claim process in obtaining the appropriate and necessary medical treatment, asserting a claim for your injuries and damages, and seeking to hold the responsible party accountable and seeking fair compensation for your property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
