Tampa Limo Accident Lawyer

Riding in a limousine is very glamorous, which is why so many people rent them for special occasions. While the limo driver is operating the vehicle, passengers can take in the scenery, have some drinks, listen to music, and relax. Unfortunately, limousines provide a false sense of security and they are no more immune to being involved in an accident on the roads than any other type of vehicle. Accidents involving limousines are also much more complex and multiple parties may be liable. If you have been injured, a Tampa limo accident lawyer can help you claim the damages you need to make a full recovery.

A Tampa Limo Accident Attorney Can Help Passengers Hold Limousine Companies Liable

Passengers in limousines can become injured in a number of ways. Not only will they likely sustain injuries if the limo driver is involved in an accident, but occupants can also become hurt when no other vehicle is involved. For example, a limo driver may take a turn too quickly, causing passengers to suffer whiplash and other injuries.

When the limousine driver causes an accident that results in injuries, injured occupants can hold the driver, as well as potentially the limousine company, liable. Limousine drivers have the same duty of care as other drivers on the road, and they must act in a reasonable manner that keeps everyone safe.

Limousine companies are responsible for ensuring they only hire experienced and competent drivers that will not cause an accident on the roads. Any time a limo driver, or the company they work for, does not meet their legal obligations, an attorney can help you file a claim against them.

A Tampa Limo Accident Attorney Can Help Passengers Hold Other Parties Liable

Just because an accident involved a limousine does not mean the driver or the trucking company was at fault for the crash. Sometimes, another driver will cause an accident with a limousine driver. When this is the case, an attorney can help you file a claim against the other negligent driver.

If you exhaust the damages available from the negligent driver’s insurance company, you may still be able to file an additional claim against the limousine company. However, not all limousine companies provide coverage for accidents caused by third parties.

A Tampa Limo Accident Attorney Can Help Other Drivers

Sometimes a limo driver may cause a crash and in addition to passengers being injured, other drivers are, as well. If you were another driver hurt by a negligent limo driver, you likely have to exhaust the benefits available from your own insurance company first, under Florida’s no-fault auto insurance laws. If these benefits are not enough to cover the cost of the injury, or you sustained a serious injury, then you can file a claim against the limousine company or the limo driver.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
