Putting Florida’s Injury Victims First
After a catastrophic personal injury, you will need a personal injury attorney. There are plenty of options in the Tampa Bay area. How will you know whom to choose?
You can start with me at my firm, George C. Kezemides, P.A. For more than 24 years, I have devoted my career to fighting for maximum compensation for Florida’s survivors of devastating accidents. If you lost your loved one to a deadly accident, I can represent you as well. Just a few of the personal injury claims I regularly handle include:
- Car accidents
- Commercial trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Dog bites
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful death claims
I do not take a cookie-cutter approach to your claim. I think outside of the box, tailoring my approach to give you the best chance I can at recovering a settlement or award. What’s more, I work on a contingency fee basis. You do not pay me a dime unless I recover compensation for you.
Questions I Am Often Asked About Personal Injury Cases
Keeping my clients informed is a large part of how I prepare them for their injury claim process. At your free initial consultation after an accident, I encourage you to bring me your questions. To help you get started, I’ve provided answers to common questions below. To get answers to your unique questions, please contact me so we can set up a time to speak – at no cost to you.
How long is this going to take?
First, I will conduct an investigation into your car accident or any accidental injury. I will then prepare to present your case to claims adjusters, a judge or a jury. I may file your injury claim through a civil court. It could take anywhere from six to 18 months, or your legal opponent may offer to settle out of court even sooner.
What is my case worth?
A judge and jury will likely consider the following factors when deciding whether to award you money and, if so, how much:
- Outstanding past medical bills
- Your doctors’ projection as to your future needs for physical therapy and follow-up care such as surgeries
- Whether you’ve missed work and how much you have lost in wages
- Whether you will have a loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering, both past and as projected for the future
While your medical bills and lost wages may be quantified objectively, your pain and suffering are subjective. I will help explain to decision-makers the nature of your pain and suffering.
How are pain and suffering defined?
Naturally, different people experience different types and degrees of pain and suffering. In settlement conferences or in court, I will communicate persuasively what your losses have meant to you. For example, are you no longer able to pursue your favorite activities? Through charts, photos and other visual presentations, I will bring your story to life before claims adjusters or a judge and jury.
Why does it matter whether I was wearing a seat belt?
If you weren’t wearing a seat belt at the time of the car or truck crash, a jury might believe you were partially at fault for your own injuries. They may award you less as a result.
