You Don't Pay Unless We Win Your Case
One of the benefits of retaining a personal injury lawyer at Robert Sparks Attorneys is that we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay us any up-front costs. You only pay us if we are able to secure a financial recovery for you. Then, our fees will be computed as a percentage of your recovery.
Charging no up-front attorney fees frees you up to choose the best attorney. Financial concerns are one of the top reasons people choose to go unrepresented or self-represented after an accident or injury.
The time after your accident can be riddled with emotional, physical, and financial concerns – this is not the time you need to be worrying about added expenses. This is why we don't charge hourly or surprise you with hidden fees. When you work with the team at Robert Sparks Attorneys, you don't pay unless we win.

How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Case?
For a personal injury case to have merit, there must have been damages suffered through a negligent or wrongful act. To determine whether you have a case requires a full evaluation your specific circumstances, the degree of injury, and the type of incident that took place. At Robert Sparks Attorneys, we offer a free case evaluation to assist you and answer any questions you may have about your potential case.
We handle all types of cases, including those that involve:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Wrongful death
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Premises liability
How Long Will My Case Take?
The resolutions of these cases vary. In cases of catastrophic injury, as the settlement sought will be extremely high value, it can take longer than those in which the injured victim will recover within a predicted length of time. We always press for a fast resolution, but the recovery of compensation sought must be sufficient and reflect the damages that our client has suffered. If we need to go to court, we will do so for our client.
While we never want to prolong the claims process, our firm is committed to pursuing your case until we believe you are being offered a fair resolution. That being said, we will take your case to court if necessary, which could make the process longer, but it is never our first recourse. We always try to negotiate a settlement outside of court first, which can limit not only the time it takes to secure a settlement, but court fees as well.
How Is COVID-19 Impacting Personal Injury Cases?
What If I've Already Been Offered a Settlement?
If you were offered a settlement without representation from an attorney, it is likely you are being offered an amount far lower than you could get with support from our firm. It is advised that you do not sign paperwork or answer questions from insurance adjusters or provide medical records until you speak with us. Our personal injury attorneys in Tampa can review your settlement offer when you schedule a free consultation.
Isn't a Personal Injury Lawyer Expensive?
Personal injury cases are taken on a contingency basis; if we don't win, you don't pay. In addition, we advance all of the costs necessary to pay for a medical expert evaluation and to fully investigate and gather evidence to support your claim. This allows you to have high quality legal representation without an initial outlay of funds. Once the case settles, we would take a predetermined percentage of the settlement.
Will My Case Go to Court?
Typically, only highly contentious cases are litigated. We prefer to negotiate a settlement outside of court so we can have more control over the outcome. If your case goes to court, the outcome is in the judge and jury's hands. Every case is different though, so talk to an attorney to discuss the likelihood of your case going to court.
How Much Money Can I Recover?
The amount of money we choose to pursue for our clients is based on a number of factors, including the severity of their injuries, the nature of their accident, and the extent of the wrongdoing. Our goal is typically to recover enough money so that you do not have to pay out of pocket for accident-related expenses.
Damages commonly sought in a Florida personal injury case will include compensation for the victim's economic damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, property damages, and future medical expenses, as well as compensation for non-economic damages like emotional pain and suffering. However, each case is unique.
Is Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer Really Necessary?
You are not required by law to retain a personal injury attorney after an accident, but it undoubtedly helps. The claims process can get incredibly sticky, and it is easy for individuals to get taken advantage of if they are unfamiliar with the legal system. You can rest easier knowing you have a qualified lawyer on your side.
Additionally, on average, people get three-and-a-half times more money when they are represented by an attorney versus self-representation. Insurance companies and other large corporations bank on the fact that they are bigger than you, but you don't have to let them boss you around. If you were injured, let us help.
Many accident victims do not receive the full amount of compensation they deserve because they accept the first settlement the insurance company offers. Our lawyers have extensive experience negotiating with large insurance companies who employ practices such as delaying or lowering claims, and we know how to win.
Hire a Firm with the Focused Experience It Takes to Win
Corporations and large insurance providers have built huge legal departments with the sole purpose of intimidating victims and avoiding insurance payouts. At Robert Sparks Attorneys, our team of seasoned personal injury lawyers in Tampa has diverse experience on both sides of the courtroom – we are former prosecutors, former insurance defense attorneys, former public defenders, and former law enforcement.
We know when insurance companies and corporations are trying to prevent you from receiving the rightful compensation you deserve. We can’t be intimidated, and we get serious results.
Our personal injury attorneys have an intimate understanding of how insurance companies think and work. We know what strategies they use to try to undervalue or delay claims. We even know what steps law enforcement may take at the scene of an accident, and we use this information to build stronger, better cases for our clients. Every element of our experience is put to work for our clients as we pursue the best possible resolution.
We’re serious about personal injury litigation, and our results prove it. For more information and a free consultation with one of our Tampa personal injury attorneys, call (813) 336-3348 or contact us online.
