Distracted driving is a problem nationwide, but especially in Florida, where texting and driving was only made a primary offense (something that police officers could pull you over for alone) in January of 2020. Florida does rank 15th in the nation for distracted driving rates, and because St. Petersburg is such a large and busy area, it makes sense that accidents related to distracted driving happen here frequently. It’s important to note that while texting is the biggest distraction overall, distracted driving includes more than just the use of mobile phone communication; changing the radio, listening to loud music, navigating, eating, applying makeup, or tending to kids in the backseat are all examples of things that take drivers’ attention and eyes off the road, which can lead to catastrophic accidents.
Sustaining injuries that were caused by a distracted driver can change your life, or at least significantly interrupt it. If you or a family member has been involved in this type of accident, you are legally entitled to make a claim for financial restitution! Recovering damages in a claim can be difficult due to Florida’s PIP laws and insurance companies’ unwillingness to pay out full benefits, though, so you need to enlist the help of a reputable law firm who can guide you through the process and give you the best chance at a fair settlement! The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg distracted driving accident injury lawyers are your top choice for quality representation.

Distracted driving accident injuries are incredibly expensive. You need a large settlement to heal! Our legal knowledge gives victims an advantage in negotiations.
Being blindsided and hit by a distracted driver can be a traumatic experience, but also a costly one. You may have to pay for expenses associated with ambulatory transport, ER care, imaging tests like X-rays and CT scans, surgeries, hospitalization, physical therapy, chiropractic care, medical devices, medications, copays, deductibles, mental health counseling, and more. You may have to take time off of work, or not be able to return to the same career you performed before, causing you to miss out on wages. You may be unable to participate in your favorite activities for a while, have to cancel non-refundable travel plans, and be in debilitating pain for weeks or months. Tragically, some injuries may never heal, and require lifelong treatment. The total cost of your injuries could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars!
You pay an auto insurance company to have your back in a situation like this, as they rightfully should, but many injured victims are surprised to find that the insurance company will either deny their claim altogether or give them a lowball offer for their injuries. That’s because insurance companies make more money when they can avoid paying out claims; they are looking out for their best interests, not yours. When you’re injured, trying to fight with them alone can be exhausting and frustrating, but when you have a lawyer on your side, you have negotiating power! Our St. Petersburg distracted driving accident injury lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience on our team. We know the tactics that insurance companies use to deny claims and how to work past them. We aren’t afraid of their intimidation or of taking your case to trial if that is what it takes to get you the full amount you deserve!
When you work with The Florida Law Group, you work with attorneys who truly care about making a positive impact on your life. We go the extra mile for all of our clients, including connecting them with quality medical attention or financial assistance, if necessary. Our goal is to treat you like we would treat our own family members if they were injured in a crash with a distracted driver! We will take the time to listen to your story, answer all of your questions, explain your options, and communicate with you often. You can rely on our St. Petersburg distracted driving accident injury lawyers to relentlessly pursue fair compensation for you! Getting into an accident wasn’t your fault; insurance companies shouldn’t make you pay for an event that was out of your control.
Why should you choose our personal injury law firm to fight for you?

About The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg Presence
In 2021, The Florida Law Group was excited to open an office in St. Petersburg! Before that, we had been offering representation to victims in St. Pete via our Tampa office, but now we are closer and more accessible; our clients and prospective clients don’t have to travel out of the Pinellas Peninsula to meet with us. St. Petersburg is a vibrant, highly populated city (the 5th most crowded in the state) with many one-way streets, heavy traffic, and crosswalks, putting residents and visitors at a higher risk for being injured in an accident with a distracted driver.
If you are seeking to recover damages for injuries caused by a distracted driver, there is a statute of limitations past which a settlement will not be awarded. This is a time-sensitive matter!
