Biography

You deserve an injury attorney who is a FORMER INSURANCE ADJUSTER and a FORMER INSURANCE DEFENSE ATTORNEY. Attorney Chelsie Lamie is both and she has been fighting exclusively for accident and injury clients since 2008.

Attorney Lamie was trained by insurance companies to minimize and defend against the claims of car accident victims as an insurance adjuster and, after graduating from law school, as an insurance defense attorney.

Chelsie understands what motivates insurance carriers to fairly settle claims and has enjoyed using what she learned as an adjuster and insurance defense attorney for the benefit of our injury clients. In 2008, Chelsie switched sides and began practicing exclusively plaintiffs personal injury.

Chelsie is an accident survivor herself, having been hit head-on at over 100 miles per hour while she was a student at Stetson University College of Law. Chelsie knows first hand how a crash or other serious personal injury can change your life. She and her team pride themselves on giving each client the personal attention that their case deserves.

Attorney Chelsie Lamie handles cases throughout the entire state of Florida, with offices in Pinellas, Hillsborough and other counties from the panhandle to the keys.

Legal Answers
Q. If someone assaulted you a long time ago at a club can you still press charges
A: I'm really sorry that this happened to you. A great deal of my practice is negligent security cases, which includes physical assault, shootings and rape/sexual assault or molestation at a business (hotel, massage center, clubs, parking lots, etc.). Under normal circumstances, you have 4 (four) years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit to preserve your statute of limitations. You should immediately retain a lawyer to evaluate whether or not you can still file suit and if so, to actually file suit to preserve your claim. Timely reporting of the crime, timely notice to the potential defendants and hiring an attorney to immediately attempt to preserve any witness testimony and physical evidence is so important in these types of cases. I wish you well!
Q. Is it normal for a law firm to suggest that you get financial funding to pay for surgery?
A: Taking out a loan to pay for medical treatment should almost never be done. The companies that do this charge terribly high rates. A better option is to (1) use your Auto insurance (PIP); (2) use your health insurance (you may have to pay back some percentage of what they paid out of the settlement but your lawyer should handle these negotiations for you) or (3) an agreement between you and your doctor that your lawyer will pay your medical bill out of the accident settlement. Unfortunately, there is no undoing what has been done in your situation. I urge you to speak with your lawyer immediately and make a plan to settle the case as quickly as possible, without undermining the value of the case, to pay off the medical loan as soon as possible. Those interest rates may seriously hurt your recovery in this case. I wish you well.
