Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Victims of Tampa Accidents
Florida law firm getting justice for people injured in crashes and falls
Personal injuries can happen anywhere, at any time. Often, events that we call “accidents” were actually caused by someone’s actions or negligence. In these cases, the law may allow you to bring a suit for damages. If you have been hurt, it is important to have a Tampa attorney who can help you get compensation for your medical costs and your pain and suffering. At The Law Office of Richard Driscoll, we work hard to get you the compensation you need and the justice you deserve.
Representing victims of all types of accidents and injuries
Personal injury law allows injured people to recover damages for nearly any type of injury caused by nearly any type of accident. In order to hold someone responsible, they must have had a duty to do something and have breached that duty, leading to your injury. For example, a doctor usually has a duty to provide reasonably competent medical care. If your doctor makes a mistake that the average doctor in the area wouldn’t have made, the doctor may be found liable for your injuries and forced to pay damages. Some examples of injuries that may be caused by negligence include:
- Broken bones caused by an auto accident
- Brain injuries from a motorcycle wreck
- Burns caused by a defective machine
- Spinal injuries from slipping in a wet store aisle
- Death caused by a falling object at a construction site
We want to help you through your injury, and we work hard to get you the best settlement or damages award possible. When you fall, we step in and help you get your life back together.
