Tampa Personal Injury Attorneys
As beautiful as Tampa is and as much as it has to offer, you can still suffer serious injuries in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or any other accident someone else caused through their negligence or wrongdoing. You could also have sustained considerable damage to your property because of a hurricane or other violent storm.
As a result, you could face considerable medical bills and treatment costs, lost income, costs of hotel stays, and repairs to your home or property, among other out-of-pocket expenses. Although insurance may cover such incidents, insurance companies may set complex and challenging hurdles in the path of your recovery.
Insurance companies are looking out for their best interests, not yours. They do not like to pay on claims because it reduces their profits, and they typically deny claims or offer inadequate settlements.
The Tampa personal injury attorneys at Apex Law can recover the maximum compensation you deserve. Our law firm handles many personal injury and property damage claims, and our founding attorneys, Jeff Constantinos and Chris Castillo, have more than 20 years of collective experience helping clients throughout greater Tampa.

We can answer all of your questions and handle all the paperwork and communications for you, so you don’t have to worry about it. You can rely on us to assert your rights and advocate zealously for you throughout all legal proceedings. Jeff Constantinos and Chris Castillo feel comfortable in a courtroom and won’t hesitate to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes.
Our smart, seasoned, and strategic representation can make a difference in how high a settlement you obtain. Call our Tampa personal injury lawyers today for your free consultation and learn more about your options. You don’t have to pay anything for our services, and we will only accept a fee if we recover compensation for you.

Accidents and Injuries in Tampa, Florida
In one recent year alone, Hillsborough County witnessed over 28,000 motor vehicle accidents, resulting in over 19,000 injuries and over 200 fatalities. In addition to injuries caused by traffic incidents, Tampa and the surrounding areas also see tens of thousands of unforeseen accidents every year.
The complications brought on by a serious accident are many and not limited to the sheer physical toll of your injuries. Florida is one of the most expensive states for healthcare, with some of the highest rates for emergency room care, surgery, and other medical expenses that will undoubtedly arise when you suffer an accident of any kind. For this reason, among many others, having an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer to advocate for your needs during the challenging aftermath of an accident is crucial to your long-term recovery and success. Our team understands the difficulties that injured Floridians suffer and is prepared to fight for you.
Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim
The repercussions of an injury caused due to someone else’s negligence can be long-lasting. Beyond the immediate medical bills, you might be grappling with lost wages, therapy costs, and the mental anguish of recovery.
Having a lawyer who understands your rightful compensation is pivotal in these trying times. The true value of a personal injury claim isn’t just about the immediate costs but the broader financial implications of the injury. Our attorneys will work to ensure that you’re compensated fully and fairly. Some of the damages you may be eligible to claim include:
Economic Damages (Special Damages)
- Medical Expenses: This encompasses past, present, and future medical bills related to your injury. This could include hospital stays, surgeries, physical therapy, prescription medications, and other medical treatments.
- Lost Wages, Income, and Earnings: Compensation for earnings you lost as a direct result of the injury and the time you’ve had to take off from work, including reduced earning capacity if you’re unable to return to your previous job or work the same number of hours.
- Property Damage: If personal property (like your car in a vehicle accident) was damaged or destroyed, you can claim its repair or replacement cost.
Non-Economic Damages (General Damages)
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress endured because of the injury.
- Emotional Distress: Damages for psychological impacts, such as anxiety, depression, or PTSD resulting from the accident.
- Loss of Consortium: If the injury has adversely affected the relationship between you and your spouse, you may be entitled to these damages.
- Loss of Enjoyment: Compensation for being unable to partake in or enjoy activities and hobbies that you used to before the injury.
Depending on your particular case, there may be specific rules, caps on certain damages, and statutes of limitations that apply. Working with an experienced attorney can provide invaluable guidance and enhance your chances of obtaining the full spectrum of damages you are owed.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?
We understand the financial strain that a personal injury can cause. That's why we offer free consultations and work on a contingency fee basis. We don't charge any upfront fees, and we only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you. We base our fees on a percentage of the settlement or verdict obtained, so you don't have to worry about paying out of pocket. We will discuss all details of our fees when we meet with you and before you sign a contract so you’ll know what to expect.
How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?
The timeline for resolving a personal injury case can vary depending on the case's complexity and the opposing party's willingness to negotiate a fair settlement. We strive to resolve cases as efficiently as possible while protecting your rights. During your initial consultation, we can provide you with a better understanding of the potential timeline for your specific case.
What if the insurance company offers me a settlement?
Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly and for as little as possible. Their primary goal is to protect their own interests and minimize their financial liability. Before accepting any settlement offer, consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can assess the offer's fairness and advise you on the best course of action.
Will I have to go to court?
While most personal injury cases resolve through settlements, your case may go to court if we cannot reach a fair settlement.

We will provide strong courtroom representation to fight for your rights and pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.
