HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
In most cases, in order to have a possible personal injury case you must have been injured because of the fault of another, and the injury would not have happened if the at-fault person had not been negligent. Injuries commonly associated with car accidents are physical injuries, emotional distress, lost wages, and even the loss of companionship and support suffered by your immediate family.
Although each case is different, the value of your personal injury case depends on a variety of factors, such as the physical, emotional, financial, and mental hardships the wrongdoer caused you.
Further, choosing an experienced law firm can have a dramatic impact on the amount of compensation you recover. Michael J. Meksraitis, Chartered has been helping accident victims in Tampa for over forty years. During this time, he has established a trusted network of healthcare providers who can help you get the medical treatment you need.
After the final settlement has been paid to our firm, we will notify you of the available funds and provide you with an itemized lists or amounts received, fees and costs, and medical liens among other things. Our firm believes in complete transparency and will keep you informed of the status of your case on a timely basis.
Florida law mandates that each person is only liable for their percentage of fault in the incident. This is known as comparative negligence.For example, if you were awarded $100,000 by a jury in a personal injury case, but were found to be 10% at fault, you’re recovery would be $90,000.
Likewise, even if the Plaintiff was awarded $100,000 for their injuries, but found the Plaintiff to be 99% at fault, the Plaintiff’s recovery would be $1,000.
Note: Percentages of fault are only determined by a jury or bench trial (trial with the judge acting as the jury). While this may be a factor in negotiations to settle your case, it only really comes in to play at trial.
Although a fair settlement with the insurance companies is the aspirational outcome we hope to achieve, our strategy from day one as if the case were going to trial.
Our firm is committed to ensuring you get the treatment and compensation you deserve for your injuries. We will help in facilitating medical treatment for you, consult experts, and collect necessary documents such as insurance contracts, police reports, and witness statements.

Our firm is committed to getting you the medical treatment you need to return you to the condition you were in before someone’s careless actions injured you or your family. In many cases, our firm will file, with your consent, what’s known as a Letter of Protection with the treating physicians. A letter of protection places a lien on your future settlement. This allows you to receive the treatment you desperately need now so that you can return to your previous standard of living before being injured because of somebody else’s carelessness.
As noted above, every personal injury case is different. While some cases settle quickly, a disappointingly high number of cases result in protracted and frivolous delays and make take years to complete. To understand why these cases may take years to litigate, it’s important to have an understanding of the insurance industry.
Oftentimes, an insurance company’s goal is to attempt pay you as little as possible to resolve your claim for far less what your actual damages are. They want to make your claim go away for as little as possible with no regard to your medical conditions caused by the defendant’s negligence.
