Your New Port Richey Personal Injury Claim Can Be Very Complicated
Recovering from an injury after an act of negligence in New Port Richey; can take its toll on accident victims and their families. It is physically, emotionally, and financially taxing. Just the medical costs of treating your injury can be extremely expensive, and that doesn’t include the many other costs involved. For example, many accident victims must take time off work to recover, which means they lose income and benefits. Some patients need physical therapy, modifications to their homes, special accommodations, and expensive surgeries. In addition to these financial costs, your injury can negatively affect you emotionally, causing stress and mental strain. All of this is in addition to the time and energy you must spend focusing on your recovery; doing things like keeping healthy, exercising, going to appointments, and getting plenty of rest.

How Do I Choose a New Port Richey Injury Attorney?
New Port Richey is a small suburb of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Area is most recognized for its blend of nature, beaches, shopping, restaurants, culture, and business—all with a small-town feel.
- Does your Florida law firm or attorney have a reputation for taking cases to trial when necessary? Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, P.A. (hereinafter referred to as Dolman Law Group) has litigated over 4000 personal injury lawsuits throughout the State of Florida. Matthew Dolman has been lead counsel on serious injury cases in numerous Florida counties. Stanley Gipe is a Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer. Insurance carriers often make offers based on the risk they face. The threat of a potentially large jury verdict often keeps the insurance company honest. We take pride in not leaving money on the table and litigating the case when the insurance carrier fails to make a reasonable offer.
- Do NOT pick a lawyer solely off a T.V. commercial. Being the biggest or one of the biggest firms is a double-edged sword. We regularly hear complaints from clients who retain Dolman Law Group after terminating a large advertising firm that they never met or spoke with their previous lawyer. Further, some of these firms are known in the industry as settlement mills that litigate a disproportionately low amount of their cases and fail to maximize the damages and ultimately settlement. The personal attention we provide has enabled Dolman Law Group to grow based on the referrals we received from very satisfied current and former clients.
- Dolman Law Group will negotiate all outstanding medical bills and ensure they are covered within the settlement. Further, if requested or when necessary we will help our clients with finding a physician to provide medical treatment.
- Our New Port Richey law firm is often called upon by fellow personal injury lawyers to assist on their biggest or most complicated cases.

Do Injured Victims with Legal Representation Recover More?
Those who hire legal representation, on average, recover many times more in insurance payouts than those who fight these big companies on their own [Source]. These massive, national insurance carriers have entire teams of lawyers, experts, and analysts in charge of increasing their profits. In the end, they are a business looking at their bottom line. For this reason, they seek to pay injured parties as little as possible. When you hire an attorney, you arm yourself with the same tools and resources that the insurance companies have, greatly increasing your chances of recovering what you deserve. Because our office works on a contingency fee basis, we do not get paid unless we recover your money. It is a win-win that is sure to increase your chances of absolute recovery.

What types of New Port Richey personal injury cases do we handle?
Personal injuries come in many different forms. Some of the cases we handle involve the following types of accidents and injuries:
Auto accidents – We handle a wide array of motor vehicle accidents. This includes head-on collisions, t-bone car wrecks, rear-end car accidents, drunk or drugged driving, rideshare accident (Uber or Lyft), distracted driving/texting and driving, and overly-aggressive driving. Dolman Law Group has handled over five thousand (5000) auto accident cases.
Commercial truck accidents – The biggest mistake an injury victim can make is retaining a lawyer who lacks significant experience handling commercial accident or semi-truck accident claims. We have seen many “veteran” lawyers handling an 18-wheeler case in much the same manner as a run-of-the-mill car accident. Truckers and the companies who employ them are governed by Federal Statute including hours of service (HOS). HOS regulations govern the length of time a driver may operate a truck during a single stretch devoid of a break, the required amount of time between shifts, and the number of hours a driver may operate a semi-truck during a single week. Make sure your lawyer is intimately familiar with the laws and regulations which govern commercial truck operators. Our goal is to immediately begin investigating the wreck and secure black box data while inspecting the truck before repairs. Black box data paints a clear picture of how the truck was being operated at the time of the collision. As of date, our law firm has handled over 500 trucking accident claims and lawsuits.
Motorcycle accidents – Experience dictates that insurance carriers often apply an unfair bias against bikers. Further, motorcycle accident cases tend to be more difficult as personal injury protection (PIP coverage) does not apply to motorcyclists. Thus, until a case resolves a motorcyclist is essential without insurance. They must retain a lawyer with the requisite skill to resolve their claim for enough money to cover any medical bills incurred during the case; let alone compensation to walk away with. Our goal is to immediately investigate the accident scene, obtain witness statements, and secure any existing evidence. We routinely retain the best experts to help us build damages on motorcycle accident claims and lawsuits.
Slips, trips, and falls – A majority of our premises liability/slip and fall claims are against negligent land owners (or owners of the premises) who knew of a potential hazard or danger and failed to remedy the issue before our client is injured as a result. Some of our cases focus on property owners not following building codes which can be evidence of negligence. We also handle negligent security cases against property/premises owners who fail to provide security commensurate with a known danger (i.e., failing to have adequate lighting at an apartment complex or having the proper security personnel at a premise known to be frequented by criminals and criminal activity.
Neck and back injuries– We have experience handling a wide variety of neck and back issues (the most common injuries following a car wreck). We have successfully litigated claims wherein our client underwent anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF), posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF), disc decompression, corpectomy, laminectomy, kyphoplasty, foraminotomy, an implant of a spine stimulator, radio-frequency ablation (rhizotomy), epidural steroidal injection among others.
Wrongful death – Our law firm has handled over three hundred wrongful death claims and lawsuits. Following the death of a loved one, hiring a wrongful death attorney may not be the biggest priority. However, time is of the essence as evidence can be lost, witnesses forget pertinent facts and there is also a statute of limitations to adhere to. We have handled wrongful death lawsuits stemming from car accidents, motorcycle or truck accidents, birth injuries, and construction site accidents.
Traumatic brain injuries – Our firm has an extensive history of handling traumatic brain injury (TBI) and mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) cases. We work hand-in-hand with leading experts including prominent Neurologists, Neuropsychologists, and Radiologists to illustrate objective medical documentation of our client’s injuries and how it has impacted their quality of life.
Drunk driving accidents – This overlaps with car accidents. Unfortunately, we have represented victims of serious injuries due to the gross negligence of an intoxicated or stoned driver. Driving a vehicle (or motorcycle) while inebriated displays a wanton and willful disregard for the safety of fellow motorists and pedestrians.
We also consistently handle the following areas of injury law
- Burn injuries
- Defective products
- Premises liability claims
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Workers Compensation
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Spinal cord injuries
- Birth injuries
- Dangerous pharmaceuticals
- Dog bites
- Nursing home abuse
- Truck accidents
When it comes to finding an attorney to handle your injury case, you need to hire a competent and experienced injury lawyer. Although it is true that every attorney went through law school, not every attorney has spent years gathering resources, expert witnesses, and the experience necessary to take on specialized cases.

How To Prove Negligence In A New Port Richey Personal Injury Case?
To recover for your injury-related losses, you must sufficiently prove that another party acted negligently and that damages were incurred. This involves much more than simply who was at fault or who thinks the other was wrong. Instead, one must present detailed evidence to support their claims. Specifically, the evidence must indicate the following elements:
The negligent party owed a duty of care. For instance, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. Likewise, property owners have a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition for the safety of their visitors and guests.
The party breached that duty and caused your injuries. When someone breaches their duty of care, they do something (or fail to do something) that caused or could have prevented the injury. For example, a person who was texting and driving breached their duty to drive safely and cautiously; if not for their texting there would have been no motor vehicle accident. A property owner who allowed a dangerous condition to exist (i.e. a leaking pipe that created a puddle in the main walkway) breached their duty to keep their property safe. If the owner would have acted to repair the pipe, there would have been no puddle and thus no slip-and-fall.
You suffered losses as a result. Finally, one must prove that they incurred losses as a result of the accident. It is not enough that a party had a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and an accident occurred; they must also prove that damages and losses resulted from that accident. Losses can include medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, lost benefits, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, physical pain and suffering, and more.
Each one of these elements presents specific legal principles and standards. A seemingly simple matter can quickly become complicated, so you always want an attorney handling your case who fully understands the law and how it applies to your individual case.
In this same respect, there are often multiple angles of negligence or multiple parties at fault; no insurance company or defendant is going to offer up this information. Retaining an attorney who can recognize these angles can greatly increase your compensation, ensuring that every loss is fully recovered.
Do New Port Richey Personal Injury Cases Require Extensive Resources?
To prove negligence against another individual, a manufacturer, or a property owner, you must present evidence to the court. Gathering relevant evidence of negligence can be a challenging task and, in many situations, can require a significant amount of time, energy, and resources. We invest in the retention of experts to illustrate the value of each claim. Fortunately for injured victims in the New Port Richey area, the Pasco County injury attorneys at the Dolman Law Group have the necessary resources to conduct a thorough investigation. While we gather the necessary evidence to win your case, you can focus on your physical and mental recovery.
Some examples of evidence that may be used in a Pasco County personal injury case are:
- Witness statements
- Police reports
- Video Footage
- Cell phone records
- Vehicle maintenance records
- Expert analysis of the accident scene
- Medical records
- Expert testimony about the severity of injuries
- Testimony from economic experts
As you can imagine, many injured victims do not know how to go about gathering these types of evidence or hiring the required experts. At the Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we have spent years creating a network of experts who are standing by to help with your personal injury claim. Employing these resources, along with gathering the right evidence early, gives you the best chance of obtaining the greatest possible result in your case.
When To Contact A New Port Richey Injury Lawyer?
When a preventable accident results in serious injuries, victims can sustain significant medical expenses. In addition to the medical costs, victims often lose income because they are no longer able to work. Victims of accidents may also experience substantial physical and emotional pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, loss of companionship, etc. These are damages that are often associated with a motor vehicle accident but are also common in many other types of negligence actions.
Fortunately, Florida tort law allows victims to recover compensation for these and other losses that they may experience as a result of a preventable accident. As mentioned above, a lawyer familiar with litigating Florida personal injury cases can often help victims recover substantially more compensation than they would be able to on their own. Combine this advantage with the stress-relieving factor of having an expert working for your benefit and it’s easy to see why an injured victim should discuss their options with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Dolman Law Group’s New Port Richey Personal Injury Attorneys
Since 2009, the Dolman Law Group has been representing the legal rights of accident victims injured in preventable acts of negligence in and around the New Port Richey area. Unlike many other personal injury law firms, we provide individualized representation to each client. Many of the large advertising ‘settlement-mill-type‘ firms focus on quantity over quality. We are a personal injury firm focused on quality representation rather than the number of clients. For us, reputation and word-of-mouth are everything. We also differ from many of these firms in that we are prepared to take each case to trial if it’s in the best interest of our client. Insurance companies know which firms will settle easily and which ones will make good on their promise to take them to court if need be. This significantly increases our (and your) negotiating power.
