Eric D. Nowak

When I was young, I never knew what I wanted to do with my career, other than help people. As a personal injury lawyer, I get to do that every day and it is the most fulfilling job I have ever done. I take pride in listening to my clients concerns and fighting for them. If you need an advocate or someone that will work tirelessly for you or your family member, give me a call and let me be your voice.

I am a civil litigator. I have handled numerous cases involving, among other things, medical negligence, premises liability, car accidents, trip and falls, business disputes, wrongful death, and federal tort claim act claims. I have handled numerous medical malpractice matters which have resulted in six and seven figure settlements for my clients. Recently, I resolved a wrongful death/medical malpractice matter where the total settlement value of the case exceeded $1.4 million.

I have been recognized for my work on behalf of injured Floridians by having been placed on Florida Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite List and have been awarded rising star status by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers list. I am also active in the Tampa Bay community. I presently serve as the Chairman of the board of directors for a Tampa based non-profit, Wheels for Success. I have served on that board for five years. Wheels of Success is an organization that provides transportation in the form of donated cars to persons who have a job but cannot afford to purchase a car to get there. I was also a past board member of the Young Lawyer Board for the Florida Justice Association where I assisted in the FJA's activities of fighting for the rights of injured Floridians. I was a member of the Cheatwood Inn of Court from 2010-2011 and 2013-2016 and am presently a member of the Wm Reece Smith, Jr. Litigation Inn of Court.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Transparent

Eric provided expert advice and stayed focus on our best interests. His years of experience showed in our regular interactions and in dealing with the other parties in the case.

Our case had components that included bodily injury and property damage. There were some complicating details related to the parties involved that Eric was able to handle in a straightforward manner.

We were impressed with Eric's ability to:
  1. Present a complicated situation in a way that we could understand clearly.
  2. Present options, potential next steps around each option.
  3. Proactively act on follow up items with insurance companies, lawyers from other parties, hospitals and county officials.
  4. Secure a result that our family found very acceptable.

Eric's sensitivity to our family's medical situation was much appreciated as well. At a time where we were overwhelmed with emotional and physical trauma, Eric handled all of our legal commitments in a professional manner that gave us piece of mind in that part of our situation.
