Tampa Car Accident Lawyer

Representing Injured People in Tampa and Throughout Florida

Car accidents happen every day, and sometimes they change lives forever. The Capaz Law Firm understands the ways in which vehicle accidents can impact the quality and enjoyment of life for those involved. In addition to property damage, accidents often result in financial losses including lost wages and medical expenses, and cause serious, sometimes permanent bodily injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, it is in your best interest to contact a Tampa accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Car accidents can cause serious bodily injuries. Without treatment, or with improper treatment, these injuries can become worse and lead to long-lasting pain and discomfort that may limit one’s physical activities. Seeking prompt and proper medical attention is vital for those who have been injured as a result of an accident. If you have been injured in a crash, it is important to contact a Tampa car accident lawyer as soon as possible after the crash. The Capaz Law Firm will discuss your accident and any potential claims you may have. We will also discuss your available options and work with the at-fault party’s insurance company to handle your personal and legal needs on your behalf.

Tampa Car Accident Lawyer Offers Aggressive and Thorough Representation

Tampa personal injury lawyer Dereck Capaz spent the first part of his legal career defending insurance companies and other large corporations. Through his experience as a defense attorney, he learned how claims are evaluated and defended by insurers, and consequently, the circumstances under which insurers agree to pay settlements. If you have been injured in an accident, it is in your best interests to contact a Tampa lawyer who will aggressively and thoroughly pursue your claim using knowledge gained from professional experience.

The at-fault party’s insurance company will immediately begin to investigate the claim. Most often, their goal is to minimize the value of a claim to limit the amount the injured party can recover. In fact, some insurance adjusters routinely contact injured parties just hours after an accident to try to obtain a recorded statement about the extent of injuries that resulted from the accident. This is just one of many tactics used to gain an unfair advantage over the injured party regarding the extent of his or her injuries. This happens despite the fact that many injuries are not apparent until several days or even weeks after an accident has occurred. The Capaz Law Firm will help you navigate the legal and claim process including helping you get proper medical treatment, asserting a claim for your injuries and any damages related to the accident, and seeking fair compensation for your property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
