When you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may decide that hiring a personal injury attorney is the next step. In the Tampa Bay area, there are hundreds of personal injury attorneys. So how do you know which attorney is right for you? There are a few key things you should look for before hiring an attorney.

Focus of Practice

When choosing the right attorney for your personal injury claim, you want to find a firm that focuses on accident claims. Some firms practice in multiple areas of the law. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we focus solely on accident cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, and motorcycle accidents. This allows us to give these cases the attention they deserve.


One of the most important things to look for when choosing the right attorney is finding someone with extensive experience handling accident cases. Hiring a personal injury attorney with a great deal of experience in your area means that the attorneys will know how to investigate your case, what to look for, and where to look for it. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we have over 30 years of experience handling accident cases. We work on these cases every day and know the steps needed to help you pursue compensation for your injuries.


Look for testimonials and reviews of an attorney before you hire them. The opinions of past clients can be very helpful in determining whether they are trusted and experienced. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we are proud to have represented over twenty thousand satisfied clients over the years. We have hundreds of five-star reviews from clients on Google. In addition, we have received a “Best Law Firm” rating with U.S. News and World Report, an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and the highest possible AV rating with Martindale-Hubbell.


Another important thing to look for when choosing the right attorney is whether they have successfully achieved results for their clients. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
