But, whether you are going to work, visiting a friend, or catching a Rays game at Tropicana Field, you never expect a car accident to happen to you. Then, all of a sudden, it happens. You’re in pain. You feel lost, angry, confused. You’re wondering: Why did this happen to me? Who can I call for help? The law firm of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk is here for you.

When you choose Abrahamson & Uiterwyk to handle your claim, you can feel confident knowing that our sole priority is helping you recover maximum compensation.
Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Many car accident victims are apprehensive about hiring personal injury lawyers. They don’t know if they have a claim, and they are worried that they might somehow be doing something wrong by hiring an injury lawyer to help them stand up for their legal rights.
But, the reality is this: If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, your losses are likely far greater than you realize. Not only that, but without the help of an experienced attorney, you will almost certainly settle too early and for less than you deserve. As a result, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is the only way you can make sure that the insurance companies do not take advantage of you.
After a car accident in Tampa, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. You need to know the extent of your injuries so that you can get treatment, and you need to know how your injuries will impact your life. If you are unable to work or are forced to live with constant pain and suffering, these are losses (in addition to your medical bills) for which you are entitled to a financial recovery under the law.
Our experienced Tampa personal injury lawyers regularly represent car accident victims who have suffered serious injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Permanent disabilities
- Permanent scarring and disfigurement
- Severe cuts and bruises
- Soft tissue damage
- Spine, back, and neck injuries (including whiplash)
- Other severe injuries
If you have not done so already, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we can refer you to a trusted physician who can diagnose and treat your car accident injuries.
How to Choose a Tampa Car Accident Lawyer
When choosing an accident and injury lawyer for your case, one of the most important differentiating factors is experience. Not just experience as a lawyer, but experience as a personal injury lawyer handling car accident claims in the Tampa area. If you choose a lawyer who is not knowledgeable about Tampa’s roadways and intimately familiar with Florida’s complex automobile injury statutes, there is a strong chance that you will not recover the full financial compensation to which you are entitled under the law.

Learn About Your Rights Before Time Runs Out to File a Claim
As a car accident victim in Florida, you have the right to speak with an injury and accident attorney. No matter what happened, where it happened, or who you think might have been to blame, it is important that you exercise this right as soon as possible. You owe it to yourself and your family to find out if you have a claim; and, if you do, the time to take action is now.
Why does it matter when you take action? There are actually a number of important reasons. For one, evidence – especially evidence of car accidents – can disappear quickly. Memories can get fuzzy, skid marks can fade, and preserving as much evidence as possible is critical to maximizing your chances of a full recovery.
For another, after a car accident, the insurance companies will begin calling. But, they are not calling because they want to help you. They are calling because they want you to settle your claim as quickly – and for as little money – as possible. To protect yourself against the insurance companies’ proven tactics, you need an experienced, knowledgeable, and aggressive advocate on your side.
Finally, if you wait too long to file your claim, you could lose your rights entirely. Florida has a strict “statute of limitations” for personal injury claims, and if you fail to take action in time, then your claim may simply expire.
Florida Car Accident Statistics
If you have been injured and need to seek financial compensation from a car accident, you are not alone. Here is some information about Florida car accidents that you should know:
- There are over 200,000 car accidents in Florida every year
- Florida car accidents are responsible for thousands of annual injuries and fatalities
Car accident victims routinely seek financial compensation for their losses. The only question is: Will you settle for less than you deserve; or, will you hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help maximize your financial compensation?
