WHAT I WILL DO FOR MY CLIENTS

Bankruptcy Cases:

I will review you financial situation and needs:  I personally take the time to review every case. It is important to completely understand your situation when considering bankruptcy.

I will ensure your case runs smoothly:  Bankruptcy does not need to be a difficult process. I will be there every step of the way with you to answer all of your questions and maximize the benefits of the bankruptcy laws. Relax and let me handle your bankruptcy so you can get a fresh start and a new beginning to your life.

Personal Injury Cases:

I will verify sources of insurance:  In some cases, injured victims can legally collect from two or three different insurance policies for the same accident.  Most accident victims are unaware of this and do not know where to look for the various sources of insurance available to them.  I can help you determine if your case qualifies for you to collect under more than one policy.

I will protect your rights:  An insurance representative will likely contact you after the accident to provide a recorded statement. It is beneficial to have an attorney present to ensure that your communications are not being misrepresented. An insurance adjuster may try to get you to admit the accident was your fault or at least partially your fault, and then later use those statements against you at trial.  Insurance adjusters are trained at gathering potentially damaging information to settle cases for the lowest possible amounts. You need someone who cares about the implications of how the accident is affecting your life, your health, and your ability to financially provide for yourself and your family.

I will conduct a thorough investigation: I will investigate your accident, interview witnesses, gather evidence, and identify liable parties to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries. Your case may require an expert such as an accident reconstructionist to immediately examine the accident scene. The insurance company will be collecting information for use during litigation. You could be at a disadvantage if an investigation is not timely conducted on your behalf.

I will evaluate your case: Insurance adjusters use several methods to get you to settle your case for less than it is actually worth. You should know the extent of ALL your injuries before you consider settlement. Many injury victims think if they do not experience symptoms immediately that they are not injured. With certain types of injuries, symptoms do not develop until days, or even several weeks after the accident occurs.  Once you sign a release with the insurance company, it cannot be retracted. You cannot go back days, months or years after a settlement if you need surgery or additional treatment. Before you settle your case for any amount, it is critical that you are making an informed decision about what medical care you are reasonably expected to need in the future, so you are appropriately compensated. This why is of the utmost importance to have an attorney evaluate your claim.

HOW I AM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS

Your choice for legal representation is critical and you should have the upmost confidence in your attorney.  It is important that you to find an attorney who you trust and who is a good fit for you and your case.  If you are later unsatisfied with your representation, it maybe difficult to find a second attorney to take your case.  Rather than relying on an advertisement, interview your potential attorney and be comfortable with your decision to hire them.

I offer each client personal attention, a history of real trial experience, and an understanding of how insurance companies handle cases.  I have been practicing law for thirteen years and have worked for insurance companies for eleven years. Having been an insider, I fully understand how insurance companies and their adjusters evaluate and negotiate cases. My clients have ranged from individuals to national corporations. I have been lead counsel on numerous multi-million dollar cases involving traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord and severe orthopedic injuries.  During my employment as corporate counsel for Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, I handled hundreds of cases where motorcyclists, pedestrians, bicyclists, or other drivers were injured or died because of careless drivers. I also have a wide range of experience handling cases where persons have been viciously attacked by a dog, harmed by a defective product, or injured because of dangerous conditions at a commercial business or residence.


Many personal injury attorneys get their trial experience while working in the criminal court system and advertise that they have extensive trial experience. But personal injury cases are tried in the civil court system, which is very different from criminal court. A large percentage of personal injury attorneys have never had one trial in civil court. I am licensed to represent clients in both state and federal courts and have tried many bodily injury cases to verdict.  The Gina Rosato Law Firm has the resources to consult and retain experts in all fields to successfully prosecute your case against the insurance companies.   

HOW I WILL WORK WITH YOU

My firm’s mission is not to be the largest but the best personal injury law firm in Tampa Bay.  I limit the number of cases I accept so I can provide the most attentive representation to all of my clients. That means being accessible, providing prompt responses to your questions, and meeting with you in person to discuss your case.

My goal is to make sure there is no unnecessary delays in moving your case forward and that you are fully compensated for your damages. If a lawsuit does not settle outside of court, many attorneys will transfer the suit to a more experienced attorney to take the case to trial. I fully intend on seeing your representation through from start to finish.   We will work as a team where you will be informed and involved in the process.
