Areas of Practice

The practices areas indicated below are the primary types of personal injuries that we handle at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk.

Car Accidents

The Tampa car accident attorneys of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk are committed to fighting for the rights of victims who have been severely injured in automotive accidents. Our legal team has the knowledge and experience necessary to prove who, if anyone, was at fault in these often complex cases.

Truck Accidents

Personal injury cases involving large trucks can be considerably more complex than most automotive accident cases. The sheer size of these huge rigs and the highly technical regulations that apply to commercial vehicles make these cases unique.

In addition to operator error, many truck accidents are the direct result of deficient equipment, poor maintenance and breaches of duty in the training of fleet drivers. Proving that an accident was caused by a failure on the part of a trucking company can increase the possible compensation for a truck accident case substantially.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are responsible for a disproportionate amount of the Florida automobile accidents that result in severe injuries or death. In most cases, these accidents are caused by other drivers who failed to share the road with motorcyclists who were riding responsibly.

At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, our Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys routinely handle these types of cases and have the experience necessary to handle the complex aspects of these cases.

Bicycle Accidents

When riders are seriously injured or killed in bicycle accidents, it is often as the result of negligence on the part of drivers or property owners.

Our team of experienced Tampa personal injury lawyers understand the factors that make these types of cases unique, such as bike design, roadway design, accident reconstruction and state vehicle laws that apply to bicyclists.

Slip and Fall

Property owners and managers have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are kept in reasonably safe conditions that do not pose safety hazard to guests or the public.

When victims are seriously injured due to a property owner’s negligence, they may be able to seek compensation through a slip and fall or premises liability case. Our Tampa personal injury lawyers understand the unique factors that come into play when demonstrating fault in a slip and fall claim.

Medical Malpractice

Medical providers may be held liable for medical malpractice when patients are injured as a result of a deviation from the normal standard of care.

We believe that medical personnel should be held to a particularly high standard due to the duty that they hold to our community. For more than 25 years, our firm has represented victims who have been injured by receiving improper care from physicians, surgeons, nurses and other medical
providers.

Dog Bites

When a dog or other animal attacks, the effects can be devastating. An uncontrolled pet can seriously injure a person in seconds, and some of the most common victims of dog bites are young children.

In the state of Florida, there are specific laws in place regarding the responsibilities that dog owners have for ensuring their pets do not pose a safety hazard to the public. We aggressively pursue compensation for dog bite victims to ensure that our clients receive the legal representation they deserve.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elderly abuse is an issue that affects everyone. The elderly and mentally impaired are the most frequent victims who suffer at the hands of poorly managed long-term care facilities. Friends and family members of these victims are also affected by the senseless suffering caused by negligent healthcare providers.

The personal injury lawyers of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk fights for the rights of victims of nursing home abuse by aggressively seeking compensation from nursing homes that place profits
before patients.

Brain Injuries

Head injuries can often result in injuries to the brain itself that can have serious consequences for a patient’s personal and professional life. In many cases, brain injuries occur as a result of accidents that may have seemed mild at the time and did not result in broken bones or loss of consciousness.

If you are experiencing the cognitive, emotional or physical symptoms of a brain injury, seek the help of an experienced Tampa personal injury lawyer who can provide you with the knowledgeable and caring representation you deserve.

Product Liability

Defective products are responsible for countless serious injuries due to poor design, manufacturing flaws and improper labeling. Product liability is an area of law that is concerned with holding manufacturers and distributors liable for dangerous and defective products that threaten public safety.

Victims who have been seriously injured due to defective products may be eligible for compensation for healthcare expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
