St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorney

Do you need help with a personal injury claim?

We are LeavenLaw, a personal injury law firm serving the St. Petersburg, Florida community for three generations. We are committed to seeing that victims of personal injuries in the area receive the compensation they deserve. We urge individuals suffering from personal injuries to come to us for a free, no-obligation, case evaluation. It is critical to move quickly in cases of injury in order to protect your rights and to document the case.

The field of personal injury is a vast one, with branches in many areas including car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents; and these are only a few of the many. In addition, cases of personal injury can occur in sectors that may be less expected. These include cases of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse in the health care field, as well as workplace injuries that often occur on the job site. For whatever type of accident and injury you have suffered, there is legal help available.

Finding the right attorney to help you take on the legal aspects of your case could result in compensatory reimbursement for the damages done to you. Birth injuries, burn injuries, dog bites, and swimming pool accidents could all cause serious physical, mental, and emotional damages that should be both medically and legally addressed. Therefore, attorneys at LeavenLaw are available to apply their legal knowledge and skill to cases of injury from slip and fall accidents, boating accidents, pedestrian accidents, and beyond. When it comes to an accident and injury there can be no telling just how severe the results might be. Drunk driving accidents could lead to life altering injuries; unknowing use of dangerous product could quickly end in serious physical damages.

Damages for Personal Injury Claims

In order to protect yourself after any type of occurrence of this nature, a lawyer from the firm can help represent your case and help you obtain the compensation you deserve after your accident and injury. We have met many people who have been offered quick low-ball settlements by insurance company adjusters only to regret it when the settlement proves to be too low, and further medical treatment or rehabilitation is needed. Do not fall into that trap. The insurance companies do not offer a reasonable settlement unless you are represented by proven legal counsel. We urge you to contact an attorney at the firm for a free estimate of your claim. Where the other party has negligently caused your damages, you are entitled to compensation. This could include:

  • Medical bills
  • Ambulance bills
  • Hospital costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity

When the victim dies, his family may bring a wrongful death action. In this action they may recover funeral and burial expenses and loss of comfort and support. If the victim survived, at least for a little while, a separate action may be brought for the estate to recover medical expenses, property loss, pain and suffering and, if there was gross negligence, punitive damages.
