There were 340,556 auto accidents across Florida in 2020, resulting in 212,143 injuries and 3,328 fatalities. With so many drivers on the roadways across the Sunshine State every day, the potential for accidents is high. Many of these are the result of reckless driving, distracted driving, tired drivers and other cases of negligence. When you are involved in an auto accident, you need an experienced Tampa car accident attorney as your legal advocate.
Car accidents present unique challenges. In each case, you need a strong advocate to protect your rights and interests and, if necessary, pursue a claim for compensation to cover your losses. Common circumstances that can complicate car accident cases include:
- Dangerous road conditions
- Distracted drivers
- Intoxicated drivers
- Reckless driving
- Overloaded trucks
- Uninsured drivers
Any of these contributing factors can cause serious accidents and injuries that will require extensive medical treatments. Moreover, you may be required to miss considerable time from work in order to make a full recovery. Or, you could even become disabled and unable to return to work. In these cases, you have every right to file a personal injury lawsuit to receive compensation to cover these losses.
In addition, insurance companies will typically try to settle your case quickly for the lowest amount of compensation possible. They do not have your best interests in mind. Ligori & Ligori car accident injury attorneys can fight to get you the compensation you deserve for your losses, which can be much more than the insurance company’s initial offer.

Large commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. A heavy truck speeding down the highway presents a significant risk for accidents and serious injuries, and even loss of life. Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law handles many truck accident cases each year, and we fight diligently to protect our clients’ rights and interests when they have incurred serious injures or lost a loved one.
Some of the types of large truck accident claims we handle include:
- Driver Fatigue
- Driver on Drugs
- Falling Debris from Trucks
- Head on Collisions
- Overloaded Trucks
- Speeding Trucks
Large truck accidents are often complicated and require skilled accident reconstruction teams to determine the exact cause. This can be further complicated when more than one or two vehicles are involved. Establishing liability for the accident can involve the truck driver, whomever loaded the truck, the maintenance team and/or the trucking company owner.
Our Tampa truck accident injury lawyers will work hard to establish the facts in your case and diligently represent your interests. This includes pursuing a lawsuit for compensation in the courts if necessary. Learn more about how we can serve you after a truck accident by visiting our Trucking Accidents page.
Motorcycle accidents typically result in some of the most serious injuries or loss of life. This is due to the almost complete lack of protection for the rider. Larger vehicles like semi-trucks or buses may have a more difficult time seeing a motorcycle, raising the risk of a motorcycle accident. Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law can provide the legal assistance you need in Florida when you have been involved in a motorcycle accident.
Florida sun and beaches are prime locations for popular bike-oriented events, such as Biketoberfest and Daytona Bike Week. Unfortunately, this only increases the risk of motorcycle accidents. Motorcycles are harder to see in traffic and other vehicle drivers can change lanes into a bike, pull out in front of a bike or otherwise crash into one. The result can be catastrophic injuries and even death.
When you are involved in a Florida motorcycle accident, you need skilled and knowledgeable legal representation to deal with the insurance company and other parties. You may also be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation to pay for medical treatment and other losses. Catastrophic injuries can incur enormous expenses for long-term therapies or even permanent damages. Discover more about how Ligori & Ligori can help you after a motorcycle accident here.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Florida drunk driving accident cases are among the most complex. Drunk drivers that cause accidents are routinely faced with criminal prosecution, which can complicate any lawsuit for compensation to cover damages and losses. Insurance companies typically offer a quick settlement to accident victims, hiding behind terms like “policy limits” to keep from paying the true costs you have incurred.
Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law believes that victims of a drunk driver are entitled to every bit of compensation we can obtain. No amount of money can replace what you may have lost, but the careless disregard of a drunk driver deserves to be punished. We can also investigate where and how the drunk driver obtained the alcohol or other intoxicating substances with a view to holding them accountable as well.
When you have been the victim of a drunk driver, our Tampa personal injury attorneys will aggressively pursue your claim for compensation. Find out more about how Ligori & Ligori can help on our Drunk Driving Accident page.
Surprisingly, some of the most common accident cases we handle are bicycle accidents. Most often, these are incidents that involve a bike and a single vehicle, although the circumstances can vary. Some common types of bicycle accidents include:
- Hit and run accidents
- Side-swipe collisions (common with large trucks)
- Front end collisions (most common with passenger vehicles)
- Left turn into a bicyclist at an intersection
Bicyclists share the road with motor vehicles but have little protection if they are struck by one. Serious injuries are all too common, and some deaths also occur. Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law can provide legal protection of your right to use the roadways and help you pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
A personal injury claim can provide valuable compensation to cover medical expenses, especially when long-term treatments and therapies are required for your recovery. It can also cover lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses. Learn more about how we can serve you on our Bicycle Accident page.
Florida is one of the top four states for pedestrian accidents. Data from the National Highway Safety Administration shows that the main factor in many of these accidents is speeding motorists that do not see or have time to avoid pedestrians. Research shows that at 40 MPH, a pedestrian has an 85% chance of death when struck by a vehicle. Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law can provide assistance when you or a loved one are involved in a pedestrian accident.
Florida law states that pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks, sidewalks, parking lots and when following all safety rules. Pedestrian accidents are completely one-sided, as the offending vehicle generally has in excess of 2,000 pounds over the person. This means catastrophic injuries and death are common. If you or someone you love are involved in a pedestrian accident, you will likely have sufficient grounds for a personal injury lawsuit to claim compensation. These funds can help offset medical expenses, loss of wages and other costs as you recover.
