What to Know About Personal Injury Claims in Tampa
Many Floridians are surprised to learn that it’s usually an insurance company that pays a settlement when you’ve been injured, not the party responsible for causing your injury.
Other facts that might surprise you about personal injury claims include:
- The scope of claims: Personal injury encompasses virtually any harm caused by someone’s negligence, recklessness, wrongful acts, or failure to act when they have a legal duty. Personal injury claims include car, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, slip and fall cases, medical malpractice, defective products, workers’ compensation, and more.
- Florida is a comparative negligence state: Though there is a no-fault insurance rule for car accidents, Florida generally follows a comparative negligence standard for personal injury cases that can affect the value of your claim based on your percentage of fault.
- Damage caps: Florida has also instituted damage caps on most personal injury claims.
- Statute of limitations: You have a limited time after an injury to file a lawsuit. The clock usually begins ticking on the day of the incident, and it expires after four years.

Tampa employment attorney
What do you do when an employer treats you unfairly? If you’re like many Tampa employees, you may feel tempted to quit the job and move on. But failing to hold your employer accountable can lead them to treat other employees the same way — and continue violating Florida’s employment laws.
Instead, you need a compassionate employment attorney in Tampa to help you seek justice. At J.P. Ward & Associates, we’re dedicated to helping Tampa employees ensure fair workplace treatment.
If your boss fired you for no reason or an unfair reason, they may be guilty of wrongful termination. Filing a wrongful termination claim could help you regain employment, seek compensation, and prevent future unfair treatment.
Employers have a duty to treat all employees and job candidates fairly regardless of their sex, race, religious beliefs, or sexuality. If an employer has discriminated against you, working with a dedicated employment lawyer in Tampa can help you hold them accountable.
When you file a claim against an employer, you shouldn’t fear future unfair treatment stemming from the claim. Employer retaliation is against the law, and you don’t have to stand by and let it happen.
Whether you’re facing one of these legal issues or another matter of unfair workplace treatment, we’re just a call away. Dial 833-GOT-FIRED to speak with an employment attorney in Tampa.
