Frequently Asked Questions
If you have been seriously injured, you need to seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you are not taken to the emergency room immediately, try to take pictures of the scene and get the contact information of any witnesses. Most importantly, DO NOT ADMIT FAULT or even apologize to anyone involved – as this will be used against you in court.
This depends on your situation. In the state of Florida, you generally have four years to file a case after the date of the accident. If you are filing a wrongful death case, you have two years from the date of death. If you are filing a personal injury case against a government entity, you have two years from the date of the accident.
Most personal injury cases end in an out-of-court settlement between the defendant or their insurance company. However, the timeline is nearly impossible to predict. There are a number of moving parts that are simply out of your hands. Personal injury attorneys are critical here to expedite the process and navigate around delays.
Personal injury lawyers are essential in getting the maximum compensation in the shortest amount of time. They know all the steps, tricks, and ways to negotiate for the highest settlement. Declining to use a lawyer makes you vulnerable – and the chances of winning your case go drastically down.
You should never have to worry about paying personal injury attorneys. A trustworthy lawyer will take your case free of charge. They know they will collect their fee as part of the settlement you receive from the other party. This is called a contingency fee arrangement. Generally, they will take between a 30-35 percent cut of your settlement – but this may be higher if you go to trial and/or the appellate process.
