Are You Facing a Complicated New Port Richey Personal Injury Claim?

Recovering from an injury caused by someone else's negligence 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 lost wages and benefits. With catastrophic injuries, some patients need physical therapy, modifications to their homes, and special accommodations, which lead to extensive future medical expenses.

In addition to these financial costs, as an injured party, you may experience stress, emotional distress, and mental strain. Then, after all the time and energy you must spend focusing on your recovery, going to doctor appointments, and getting plenty of rest, you should seek compensation for your losses. It can be a lot to deal with. But there is good news: you don't have to go through it alone.

What Steps Should You Take to Choose Your New Port Richey Injury Lawyer?

New Port Richey Personal Injury Attorneys

New Port Richey, a suburb of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Area is most recognized for its blend of nature, beaches, shopping, restaurants, culture, and business with a small-town feel. Even in our close community, we still see our fair share of personal injury accidents. Before you decide which personal injury lawyers you want to work with, consider these important points:

  1. Does your New Port Richey law firm or attorney have a reputation for taking cases to trial when necessary? Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, P.A. 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 well-respected 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.
  2. Do NOT choose a lawyer based on 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 come to our legal team after firing a large advertising firm because they never met or spoke with their previous lawyer. Further, some of these firms are well-known settlement mills that litigate a disproportionately low amount of their cases and fail to maximize the victim's damages and ultimate settlement. The personal attention we provide has enabled Dolman Law Group to grow based on the referrals we receive from very satisfied current and former clients.
  3. Dolman Law Group will negotiate all outstanding medical bills and ensure they are covered within the settlement. Further, if requested or necessary, we will help our clients find a physician to provide medical treatment.
  4. Our New Port Richey law firm receives many requests from fellow personal injury lawyers to assist on their biggest or most complicated cases because they know we have the resources and knowledge they need to recover compensation for their clients.

Do Injured Victims Who Work With an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Recover More Money?

A study by The Insurance Research Council found those who hire legal representation, on average, recover many times more in insurance payouts than those who fight these big companies on their own. These massive national insurance carriers have entire teams of lawyers, experts, and analysts in charge of increasing their profits while resolving your personal injury claim.

Adjusters are trained in insurance company tactics that focus on offering and paying as little as possible for each personal injury matter. In the end, an insurance company is just a business trying to improve its bottom line. As a result, insurers often take advantage of injury victims who try to recover compensation for their personal injury claims on their own.

When you hire a personal injury 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 money for you. It is a win-win that is sure to increase your chances of maximum recovery.

So what is your personal injury case worth? Let us fight the insurance company for the best possible outcome while you focus on recovering from your personal injuries. For a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer serving New Port Richey, call 833-552-7274

What types of claims do our New Port Richey personal injury attorneys handle?

Personal injuries come in many different forms. Some of the cases we handle involve the following types of accidents:

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 accidents (Uber or Lyft), distracted driving/texting and driving, and overly-aggressive driving. Dolman Law Group has handled over 5,000 auto accident cases.

Commercial truck accidents - The biggest mistake an injury victim can make is retaining a lawyer who lacks significant experience handling commercial vehicle 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) rules. HOS regulations govern the length of time a driver may operate a truck during a single stretch without 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 is resolved, a motorcyclist is basically without insurance. They must retain a lawyer with the requisite skill to resolve their motorcycle accidents for enough money to cover any medical bills incurred during the case, let alone compensation for other losses. Our goal is to investigate the accident scene immediately, 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 accident 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 where 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 injuries (TBIs) 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.

Medical malpractice - Some personal injury claims stem from errors and negligent mistakes made by medical providers. Examples of medical malpractice include spinal cord injuries caused by a surgeon during back surgery, pharmacists providing the wrong medication, and doctors who misdiagnose or fail to diagnose a life-changing condition and violate their legal obligation to their patients. If you have suffered physical injuries or a loved one died as a result of medical malpractice, we might pursue compensation for your losses or bring a wrongful death claim on your behalf.

We also regularly handle cases in the following areas of injury law

When it comes to finding an attorney to handle your personal injury claim, you deserve a compassionate and experienced injury attorney by your side every step of the way. Although it is true that every licensed attorney went through law school, not all personal injury lawyers have spent years gathering the resources, expert witnesses, and experience necessary to resolve your unique personal injury case successfully.

How Personal Injury Attorneys Prove Negligence In A New Port Richey Personal Injury Claim

To recover for your injury-related losses, you must sufficiently prove that another party acted negligently and that you incurred damages. This involves much more than simply establishing who thinks the other side is wrong. Instead, you must present detailed evidence to support your claim. Our dedicated injury lawyers know how to gather important evidence and build a strong case to help you receive the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

Specifically, your evidence must show the following legal elements:

  1. The negligent party owed you 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.
  2. 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 because if they were not texting, there would have been no motor vehicle accident. Similarly, a property owner who allowed a dangerous condition to exist (for example, a leaking pipe that created a puddle in the main walkway) breached their duty to keep their property safe. If the owner had repaired the pipe, there would have been no puddle and, thus, no slip-and-fall.
  3. You suffered losses as a result. Finally, you must prove that you incurred losses as a result of the accident. It is not enough that someone had a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and an accident occurred; you must also prove that damages and losses resulted from that accident. Your losses may include medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, lost benefits, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, physical pain and suffering, and more.

[Read more about the links in the chain of causation.]

Each one of these elements presents specific legal principles and standards. A seemingly simple matter can quickly become complicated, so you always want an injury attorney handling your case who fully understands the law and how it applies to your individual case.

Also, there are often multiple theories of negligence or multiple parties at fault, and no insurance company or defendant is going to offer up this information. Retaining an attorney who can recognize these theories can greatly increase your compensation, ensuring that every loss is fully recovered.

New Port Richey Personal Injury Cases Require Extensive Resources

New Port Richey Personal injury case

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 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.

[There is some evidence that only you can gather, and that will greatly boost your case.]

Some examples of evidence that may be used in a New Port Richey personal injury case are:

  • Witness statements
  • Police reports
  • Video Footage
  • Cell phone records
  • Vehicle maintenance records
  • Photographs
  • 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 retaining expert witnesses. This is why hiring a qualified personal injury lawyer is key. At Dolman Law Group, 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 receiving the greatest possible recovery in your case.

When Should You Contact a New Port Richey Personal Injury Attorney?

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.

The New Port Richey Personal Injury Lawyers at Dolman Law Group Will Treat You Right

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" 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.
