Tampa Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury claims can be difficult and frustrating under the best of circumstances – and all the more so when you are injured due to the negligence of others and their insurance company is not being cooperative. Regardless of the type of personal injury claim, in many cases, it can prove quite difficult in establishing that the defendant is responsible for the injury. In reality, many, if not most, personal injury claims never actually make it to trial, particularly when the insurance provider realizes that a settlement is in order. Even when the insurance company is agreeable, however, it is still a wise decision to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney — like the long-time and highly knowledgeable Tampa personal injury attorneys at Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore.

Automobile, Truck or Motorcycle

The opportunity for multi-car pile-ups and accidents is always present when big trucks veer out of control for any particular reason, often harming drivers in the smaller, surrounding vehicles. These accident cases can be complex and “crowded,” given that often both the driver and transportation company could be liable, along with any other driver involved in the crash. The Tampa personal injury attorneys at Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore are skilled at identifying and understanding the complications that may arise in legal claims regarding truck accidents.

Premises Liability

While commercial business operators are liable for conditions in and around the business, structure failures are often also the responsibility of, and expose liability to, the owner of the underlying property (when the store operator and property owner are different entities), particularly since many businesses operate in rented spaces. In a premises liability claim, many factors come into play and can affect your chance for recovery following an injury.  In addition, just as in claims involving auto accidents, the claimant will also be assessed for any personal contribution that helped produce the accident causing injury. The Tampa personal injury attorneys at Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore have handled many premises liability claims successfully, and they understand how to maximize your chance for recovery in any premises liability claim.
