St. Pete & Pinellas Park, FL

Personal Injury

Personal Injury cases often arise when a person is injured due to the intentional or negligent (accidental) actions of another person. In these cases, the damaged party hopes to recover damages such as having their medical expenses paid, their lost wages reimbursed, and their pain and suffering compensated for.

A person may also recover damages when their property is destroyed or diminished because of the actions of another person. In many cases a person suffers both personal injury and damage to their property, in which case the damaged party can try to recover on both claims simultaneously.

If you believe you have been injured by the actions of another person, you should contact a trial attorney immediately. Oldham & Delcamp is always available to do pre-representation consult.

Common Personal Injury Cases

1. Motor Vehicle Accidents

Florida averages over 30,000 accidents per month and hundreds of thousands annually. Every year, more Floridians and visitors find themselves among this group. These incidents are often the result of another motorists negligence. Even if you walked away from the scene – the at-fault motorist may still be responsible for your medical expenses and lost wages.

2. Premises Liability | Negligent Security, Falls, and Other Injuries

Property owners, and in some cases those who lease property, have a duty to keep their premises safe. If you have been injured on someone else’s property due to their failure to keep the premises safe, you may bring suit against the property owner or lessee. This type of case arises when:

3. Wrongful Death

If a family member or spouse died due to the negligence or misconduct of another, you may file a civil action against the party at fault for the fatality. The wrongful death action provides compensation for relatives who depended on the deceased financially and/or for companionship.

These actions are often due to:

Professional and Personal Approach to Your Personal Injury Case

Each case is different and many factors are present in the calculation of damages which determines what value will ultimately be sought from the party at fault. The trial attorney at Oldham & Delcamp are happy to take the time to speak with you, review your damages, and determine a plan for pursuing recovery. Often pre-suit settlements are favorable but if a fair and equitable agreement cannot be reached, we are prepared to file suit and proceed to a jury trial.

Damages:

Damages are the results of an injury suffered by the damaged party. A personal injury case is an attempt by the damaged party to be compensated for the injuries they suffered as a result of another person’s action or inaction. There are several types of common damages, many of which are easy to determine to ‘cost’ of, which are generally called ‘economic’ damages. However, ‘noneconomic’ damages are more subjective and rely on the particular details of a case. A skilled attorney will seek damages of both types when available.

Recovery

1. Pre-Suit Settlement Settlement

Through skilled presentation, many insurance companies can be convinced to settle a case before a trial becomes necessary. Before this can happen, an attorney gathers all the information about their clients damages (their medical bills, medical records, treatment recommendations, any property damage resulting from the accident, etc.) and then discusses the situation with their client.

By presenting the totality of the damages their client has already faced and the reasonable projection of their future hardships an attorney can demonstrate their clients damages and negotiate a satisfactory recovery for their client without the necessary hardship of pre-trial discovery and a civil trial.
