Orlando Personal Injury Attorney
Attorney Tina Willis, the owner of Tina Willis Law - Orlando, has developed a stellar reputation as a top-rated Orlando personal injury and car, truck & motorcycle accident lawyer. She also regularly handles wrongful death lawsuits -- including those based on auto accidents, and medical malpractice.
Were You Involved In An Orlando Car Accident?
Ms. Willis prides herself on giving every single one of her car accident clients a lot of time and attention. She firmly believes the instructions she gives each client at the outset of their cases helps them understand exactly what will be required to get them the most money possible from their cases.
Many clients do not understand that the value of their cases cannot be known right after an accident, even in death cases. The reason is that much of the evidence developed after an accident can dramatically change case value.
For accidents involving injuries, the first question is how much insurance coverage the at-fault driver or defendant has. Or whether they have any collectible assets. Basically, we have to know whether there is any money to pursue. This is very often a question of the amount of available insurance coverage, including any at-fault driver's bodily injury coverage, and the injured person's uninsured motorist coverage. So the first step for Ms. Willis is investigating all possible forms of coverage, to determine the amount of money that each of her clients potentially could recover.
After she knows how much money her clients could receive, she next helps them understand what steps they can take to maximize their case value. For injury cases, this often hinges on medical diagnosis and treatment. Different types of injuries have different values, and so do the same injuries with different treatment. And your interaction with your medical providers can also help or hurt your case value. So Ms. Willis explains exactly how you can fully maximize your case value.
Many bigger law firms send investigators to sign up clients, and often never have a lawyer actually talk to the person. This deprives those people of the benefit of hearing from a lawyer how to get the most money possible.
Ms. Willis also strongly discourages anyone involved in an accident from talking to anyone about the accident, especially including insurance adjusters. They will ask questions with the goal of paying you less money for your accident case. You will never know what you could say that will hurt your case. So the best idea is just not to talk to adjusters until you have spoken with an Orlando auto accident lawyer.

Were You Involved In An Orlando Motorcycle Accident?
Ms. Willis understands the unique differences between motorcycle and car accidents. These are handled exactly the same as car accidents, but there are some special considerations with Orlando motorcycle accident lawsuits.
First, many motorcycle accidents result in more serious injuries, and fatalities. Given Ms. Willis’ experience handling other death cases, she knows what is needed to set up the probate estate, and fully maximize the value of Orlando wrongful death motorcycle accident cases. The value of these cases often turns on the strength of the relationship between the deceased motorcycle rider, and her client. Florida’s wrongful death statute does limit which survivors can pursue what damages after a fatal Orlando motorcycle accident. But Ms Willis works with each of her clients and potential clients to fully explore the best possible way to get the most money possible.
For other motorcycle accident cases, many involve more serious injuries than other auto accident cases, due to the lack of protection for the rider. These more serious injuries require the injured person to understand more about how to interact with medical providers, to maximize case value, and how to document pain and activity limitations well enough to prove those later in court.
Additionally, motorcyclists often must respond differently in traffic, due to the nature of motorcycles, and the lack of bodily protection from a vehicle. So, for instance, a cyclist cannot afford to risk being hit from behind from one driver, particularly if another driver is ahead of them (because the rider and bike could be sandwiched between two vehicles). Ms. Willis understands these unique characteristics of motorcycles, so can help tell the story of why and how the motorcycle rider rode in a certain direction, or didn’t stay in a line of traffic.
If you were involved in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, or any other accident leading to serious injuries, then you would be wise to call Tina today. She usually responds quickly to phone calls, and will give you immediate answers, if she can help. You can call her anytime.
