Gulfport Personal Injury Lawyer



Personal Injury Attorney in Gulfport, FL

Suffering from a severe injury can be an overwhelming experience for anyone.  The consequences of an accident can affect your life for months, sometimes years later. 

There are, on average, 400,500 car accidents in Florida each year, according to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.  In Pinellas County alone, one five-year study found that 77 car accidents occur each day, demonstrating how cautious residents in Gulfport, Florida, need to be. 

If you’ve suffered injuries caused by the negligence of another party, it’s your legal right to pursue compensation to cover medical treatment expenses and any financial losses you experience while in recovery.  If you’ve been hurt in a car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian accident, you must seek legal help right away. 

In Florida, the statute of limitations places strict time limits on how long injured victims can pursue damages in a personal injury lawsuit.  That’s why injured victims must seek skilled legal counsel from a Gulfport personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Explaining Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

A person or entity is negligent when they fail to behave or act in a reasonably safe manner and harm another person as a result.  For example, if someone is texting while driving or fails to notice a motorcyclist in their blind spot, switches lanes, and crashes into the motorcyclist – the driver may be held liable for causing the accident and responsible for the motorcyclist’s injuries. 

Similarly, healthcare professionals like doctors and nurses are expected to have a higher standard of care than the average person because they tend to the physical needs of their patients.  When a healthcare professional neglects to act according to the medical profession’s accepted standard, and it results in injuries to a patient, healthcare professionals may be liable for medical malpractice. 

Compensation Available in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

In Florida, two types of damages can be recovered in a personal injury claim: economic and non-economic.  Economic damages include financial expenses that can be verified by receipts, expenses, and bills.  Examples of economic damages include:

  • Past and future medical and emergency care costs;
  • Lost wages if your injuries prevented you from working;
  • Future loss of wages if your injuries permanently hinder your earning ability. 

Non-economic damages are subjective by nature, and not as simple to quantify.  Non-economic damages compensate for non-monetary losses, like loss of enjoyment in life.  Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Permanent disability;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Loss of consortium or services of a spouse.

To recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit, you must file your claim as soon as possible. According to Florida’s statute of limitations, victims have four years to file a personal injury claim, three years if the claim is against a government entity, and two years if the claim has resulted in wrongful death.

“You can’t go wrong with Frank Marsalisi!”

Frank was referred to me by a former client of his after my accident with nothing but great reviews, both professionally and personally. From day one there was a level of comfortability and trust built based on what would be in my best interest moving forward. Never once did Frank make my case about what was in it for him but about healing my injuries in order to move on as normal as possible with my life.

– Karlie

“One of a kind lawyer …brilliance!”

Frank has exceptional auto accident liability law abilities and he is also very well-versed in state auto insurance laws. One of the things I like about Frank is that he never tried to sugar coat anything for me. If we were headed for trouble, he would let me know what the trouble was and what our options were. I always appreciated his honesty. This is trait that I do not find in many of today’s lawyers but Frank has performed integrity well beyond his means.
