Catastrophic Injury Cases Our Law Firm Takes On
Accidental injuries can change your life in the short-term, long-term, or even permanently. Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Birth injuries
- Brain injuries
- Severe burns
- Broken bones
- Disfiguring injuries
No matter how you were injured, we can help you seek compensation. Our personal injury practice areas for clients in Tampa include many types of accidents. Their common denominator is a basis on another person or entity’s negligence.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can result in back and spine damage, whiplash, concussions, and various other injuries. We represent clients injured in:
We also represent clients injured in pedestrian, rideshare, and boating accidents. Our team will identify the at-fault driver and their auto insurance company. We can also read and review their insurance policy and yours to determine policy limits and available compensation.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip, trip, and fall accidents can happen on residential or commercial property. Whether you were injured in a same-level fall or a fall from an elevated height, we can help you pursue compensation from the at-fault party.
That could be a homeowner, grocer, big box retailer, or other. We will look for surveillance and security footage that backs up your negligence claim. We may also locate witnesses who may have captured details of the accident on their smartphones.
Medical malpractice cases can be complicated to prove. We represent clients whose health was damaged by:
- A misdiagnosis
- A missed diagnosis
- Retained surgical tools
- Wrong-site surgeries
- And more
In addition to physicians, we can help build personal injury cases against dentists, nurses, technicians, laboratories, and healthcare facilities.
We also represent clients whose cases stem from birth injuries and construction accidents. We’ll ensure you get access to the best medical care and will come to you when your injuries prevent you from coming to our office.

Our Tampa Catastrophic Injury Lawyers May Recover These Financial Damages
Recovering damages for you after an accident means proving the at-fault party’s negligence led to your injuries. We will document the following elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
- Cause of injuries
- Financial damages
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, our Tampa catastrophic injury attorneys help injured clients and their families fight for fair and appropriate compensation so they can start rebuilding their lives.
Economic damages are simple to calculate because they typically have accompanying documentation that contains their value. The economic, or tangible, damages we may seek for you include:
- Medical bills
- Emergency room fees
- Hospital admissions
- Assistive medical devices
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost wages
- Future lost earnings
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Property damage
We will collect and calculate the bills, estimates, and receipts that prove the recoverable value of these damages. We can also ensure we accurately assess your damages and don’t overlook or omit any possible avenues of compensation.
Non-economic damages are intangible, and it can be difficult to assess their value without a lawyer. When we handle your case, we may seek compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We will explain how we arrive at the financial value of your intangible damages.
Rarely, you may also recover punitive damages. If your case qualifies for this additional form of compensation, our legal team will ensure you understand these damages.
Wrongful Death Damages
If a family member succumbed to their catastrophic injuries, a Tampa catastrophic injury lawyer from our team can help you fight to recover a range of wrongful death damages. These can include:
- The costs of making final arrangements for your loved one
- Your loss of their financial and household contributions
- Loss of consortium, guidance, companionship, and society
You could also be entitled to the personal injury compensation your loved one would have received if they survived. When we handle your case, we’ll ensure the appropriate family members pursue compensation.
Protect Your Right to Take Your Case to Court
Most personal injury cases are settled without going to court. If your case has to go to court for a fair and appropriate resolution, the following general deadlines will apply:
- Four years from the date your injuries occurred in personal injury lawsuits, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)
- Two years from the date of a loved one’s death in wrongful death lawsuits, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)
- Two years from the date of injury or discovery in medical malpractice lawsuits, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(b)
- Two years from the date of injury or discovery in nursing home abuse lawsuits, according to Florida Statutes § 400.0236
We will explore any exceptions to the statute of limitations found in Florida Statutes § 95.051 that may affect your case. We can also ensure we meet the filing deadline, so your right to recover damages does not expire.
