    Tampa Personal Injury Lawyers

    The lawyers at Slater | Grant have more than 30 years of combined experience in handling serious personal injury, wrongful death, and other complex legal disputes, including dozens of large, multi-million dollar cases. Our partners spent over two decades at large Florida law firms, where they received the highest level of training and experience the profession has to offer. We bring that experience to our clients’ cases, but with the personal attention and care of a small firm. We maintain a relatively small case load of strong cases and are not a “mill” like some other Tampa personal injury lawyer firms that have hundreds upon hundreds of cases. We treat our clients like family, not a number.

    We pride ourselves on strong advocacy for our clients, tempered by professionalism and a common-sense approach to resolving cases. We will not hesitate to try a case if necessary, yet we are skilled at negotiating favorable settlements for our clients so they can get back to their lives, families, and work.

    Large firms work on volume. They might settle your case quickly for less value to make room for the next case, or they might leave your case untouched for months. At Slater | Grant, we limit the number of cases we take so we can provide personal attention and steadfast service, actively working on your case for an optimum settlement or taking the case to trial as needed. Our big-firm experience gives us a reputation with the insurers and a leg up in negotiations, as well as the skill and determination when your case needs to be tried.

    Comprehensive personal injury practice

    Our team is ready to tackle any personal injury matter, as well as disputes in other areas of civil litigation. Call on us for valuable advice and assistance in any of the following areas:

    Car Accidents – Several hundreds of thousands of car accidents happen on Florida roads every year, causing well over 100,000 injuries, including over 10,000 incapacitating injuries and several thousand deaths. Florida car accident victims can get a portion of their medical expenses and lost income paid through no-fault insurance, and if they are seriously injured, they can file a negligence claim to recover the full measure of legal damages. Our lawyers are committed to helping car crash victims in Tampa and Wesley Chapel prove their case and get the full amount of compensation available when they’ve been hit by a drunk, distracted or negligent driver.

    Truck Accidents – Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, about 20 times more than the average passenger vehicle. 18-wheeler semi-trucks are surrounded by blind spots that extend across multiple lanes or multiple car lengths, while their size and weight make them require extra reaction time and stopping distance. When truck accidents happen, the results can be disastrous for the passengers of the car they hit. Slater | Grant is prepared to take on the largest trucking companies and hold them accountable for their failure to maintain a safe fleet or hire, train and supervise truckers who flout federal hours of service requirements and drive long past the time it is safe for them to do so.

    Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcycle riders enjoy a high degree of freedom on the road, but at the same time, they remain constantly exposed to danger from negligent, reckless and distracted drivers. Bikers, unfortunately, are far more likely to be injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents, yet they face an uphill climb when it comes to recovering compensation from the drivers responsible for causing the accident. We work hard to overcome the bias against motorcyclists and prove their cases against the drivers who hit them.

    Medical Malpractice – We put our trust, our faith, our health and our lives in the hands of medical professionals who are supposed to have the requisite skill and training – and who have taken an oath – to treat us appropriately. Sadly, medical mistakes happen every day and by one measure are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. We hold doctors and hospitals accountable for their medical errors that harm patients, despite their attempts to cover up mistakes and claim they never happened.

    Product Liability – Product manufacturers can be held strictly liable when they release a defective product on the market that winds up injuring the user. “Strict liability” means you don’t have to prove they were negligent, just that the product was defective when it left their hands and caused an injury. We hold automakers and consumer product manufacturers liable for design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn users about product dangers.

    Traumatic Brain Injury – A TBI can range from a mild concussion to a life-threatening injury or one that requires years of therapy, rehabilitation and round-the-clock care. Timely and accurate diagnoses are critical to a positive outcome. We’ll help see you get the care you need to deal with the effects a catastrophic injury has had on you or a loved one.

    Construction Accidents – Construction is one of the most accident-prone industries, but workplaces can, for the most part, be made safe when property owners and contractors take care to provide safe workplaces, monitor for safe workplace practices, and provide workers with the personal protection they need to do their job safely. When construction companies fail to provide a safe working environment, we hold them accountable for accidents that ensue.

    Premises Liability – Property owners owe a duty to maintain their premises free of slipping, tripping and other hazards. They are required to fix any known dangers or put up a warning within a reasonable time after they become aware of the dangerous condition. After a slip and fall or trip and fall, property owners will say they didn’t know about the danger, your injuries aren’t serious, or you weren’t paying attention where you were going. We’ll prove them wrong and prove their liability to you. From dog bites to sexual assaults caused by a lack of security, our premises liability team fights for your rights.

    Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents – The rise in distracted driving hurts everybody, in particular pedestrians and bicyclists who have seen their accident rates soar. We help injury victims get the compensation they need to deal with tragic, catastrophic injuries while holding aggressive, reckless and distracted drivers accountable for their unforgivable errors in judgment.

    Other practice areas

    Agricultural Disputes – With roots in the farming industry, our lawyers have the knowledge, skill, and dedication to help farmers and agribusiness owners deal with complicated crop insurance matters and agricultural disputes ranging from pesticide and spray drift to defective seed and other farming products.

    Construction Litigation – We help property owners, contractors, subs and design professionals resolve disputes that threaten to delay or derail valuable construction projects. Call on Slater | Grant for help with insurance and indemnity matters, building code violations and construction defect claims, collections and bond disputes, and more.

    Legal Malpractice – Our lawyers are experienced in professional liability defense matters, including claims of professional negligence, billing disputes and breach of fiduciary duty. As experienced courtroom litigators, we are prepared to handle the full array of malpractice claims as well as litigate the underlying the matter – the “case within the case” – to prove whether any alleged malpractice actually impacted the outcome of a legal matter.
