Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer

location tempa img, Personal Injury Lawyer,

Known for her results representing accident victims along Florida's Gulf Coast, Constance D. Coleman, the founder of the Coleman Law Group, has more than a decade of experience representing personal injury victims in Tampa and the Tampa Bay area.

If you are injured in an accident, you have the legal right to seek compensation from the party or parties responsible for your injuries. Compensation in a personal injury claim or lawsuit may include medical care expenses, lost earnings, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

Because injuries or the devastating wrongful death of a loved one can affect your life significantly, the compensation may be substantial. However, you also must establish specific elements of a case to recover damages. Without a skilled and competent Tampa personal injury lawyer, it may be challenging to recover the fair compensation you're entitled to.

After a serious injury, the compensation you receive in your claim can change the course of your life. Although nothing can undo the physical pain you've endured, money recovered can prevent financial strain or ruin, while also holding the negligent parties financially accountable. Whether your injury resulted from a car accident, pedestrian accident or from a slip and fall accident or dog bite, you have just one chance to recover money from a personal injury claim.

Although most cases do ultimately resolve in out-of-court settlements, having a lawyer who has the skills and resources to take a case to trial can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. The insurance companies know which lawyers settle quickly for low amounts, and which attorneys are prepared and willing to take a case to trial. Being represented by an empathetic, yet aggressive lawyer, can mean you obtain the compensation you deserve, which will allow you to focus on recovery and healing.

Although many lawyers work with personal injury cases, few have the energy, dedication, and commitment that Constance D. Coleman and her legal team do. As a Super Lawyers Rising Stars in 2019, Coleman has been recognized by her peers for her professional achievements and results. The Coleman Law Group is serious about helping you navigate all stages of your claim, including:

  • Communicating with insurance companies
  • Thoroughly investigating the cause of your accident
  • Filing a lawsuit
  • Calculating damages and determining future needs
  • Defending you against attempts to blame you for your injuries
  • Guiding you through important decisions.


Personal injury claims in Florida can be unfamiliar and complex. Fortunately, you do not have to handle your claim or lawsuit alone.

Automobile accidents are one of the most common types of accidents we handle. Tampa is home to more than 2.8 million people, and unfortunately, vehicle accidents in Hillsborough County caused by negligent, distracted, drunk, or reckless drivers unfortunately occur every day. Some of the deadliest highways and roads in Tampa are:

  • Interstate 4
  • Brandon Boulevard
  • Gibsonton Drive
  • Hillsborough Ave
  • Fletcher Ave
  • Dale Mabry Highway.


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than one-third of crashes occur at intersections. Drivers may be focused on their mission (changing direction) and either not see or misjudge actions of other motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, or motorcycle riders. According to WTSP News, Hillsborough County's 10 most dangerous intersections are:

  • Sheldon Road & Waters Ave W, Tampa.
  • Anderson Road & Waters Ave W, Tampa
  • Waters Ave W & Hanley Road, Town 'N' Country
  • Hillsborough Ave & Sheldon Road, Town 'N' Country
  • US 301 & Gibsonton Drive, Riverview
  • Waters Ave W & Himes Ave N, Tampa
  • US 301 & Big Bend Road, Riverview
  • Bruce B Downs Blvd & Fletcher Ave E, Tampa
  • Bloomingdale Ave & Bell Shoals Road, Brandon
  • Bloomingdale Ave & Providence Road, Riverview

The Insurance Information Institute reports that Florida has the highest number of uninsured motorists in the country, with an estimated 26.7% drivers without insurance. Personal injury lawyers and insurance companies do agree on one thing: all drivers in Florida are well-advised to carry Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM) coverage. If you are in an accident and the other vehicle flees the scene, you can file a claim with your own insurance company for injuries or property damage. In essence, Florida law will treat a hit-and-run accident as if you were hit by a driver with no insurance coverage.

Even if you are only dealing with your own insurance company, a lawyer can still help you with your claim. Unfortunately, many people believe that their insurance adjuster is empathetic and will treat them fairly. Insurance adjusters are trained professionals with one goal: resolving your claim for as little money as possible.

Under Florida Statutes, Sections 316.061-316.063, drivers must remain at the site of a collision involving property damage, injury or death. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, nearly 25% of all crashes involve a hit and run.

On July 1, 2014, the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act was signed into Florida Law, which imposes a mandatory minimum of four years in prison for a driver convicted of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in a fatality. Drivers who leave the scene of a fatal crash could be charged with a first-degree felony and face up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

Premises liability claims are another type of personal injury claim we handle. Slip and fall accidents are a leading cause of injury or death in the United States. The Florida Department of Health reports that falls are the leading cause of injury death among Florida residents ages 65 years and older and the fourth leading cause of injury death overall.

Slip and fall accidents in Tampa can occur for many reasons. When accidents are caused by inattention or carelessness, accident victims may not have recourse. However, when accidents are caused by the negligence of someone else, property owners or business owners may be liable for resulting injuries or deaths in a premises liability claim. Some of the injuries we often see from slip and fall accidents in Tampa include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Spinal injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • FOOSH (fallen onto an outstretched hand) injuries
  • Sprained ankles
  • Muscle strains
  • Knee injuries
  • Cuts and bruises


Businesses and insurance companies often offer initially low settlements for injuries in slip and fall accidents. They are quick to recognize a potentially serious injury and will try to resolve the claim as quickly as possible, for as little as they believe you will accept. Do not accept any compensation for a slip and fall or trip and fall accident without talking to an attorney.

A common question after an accident is "Who can I sue?" Numerous parties may be liable for injuries or wrongful death. We handle injury claims against:

  • Individual drivers or employers at-fault for an auto accident
  • Manufacturers of faulting or dangerous vehicle parts
  • Government agency responsible for warning about road hazards
  • Companies / corporations
  • Shipping companies (UPS, FedEx, Amazon)
  • Trucking Companies
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Municipalities
  • Property owners
  • School districts


Whenever a party is negligent and breachers their duty to exercise reasonable care, and injuries result, liability may exist. In some cases, such as a car pileup, liability may be jointly shared. Hiring an experienced and knowledgeable Tampa personal injury lawyer to handle your claim can make a world of a difference in obtaining justice for your personal injury claim.
