Do I have a case?
If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence or intentional act of another, you may have the right to recover damages including:
- Past Lost Wages
- Loss of Future Wages or Earning Capacity
- Past Medical Bills
- Future Medical Bills
- Pain and Suffering
However, simply having "the right to recover" for your injuries does not mean that you will actually recover for your injuries. Insurance companies do not voluntarily pay money on claims. In fact, insurance companies are large corporations in the business to make money. The less they pay in claims the more profit they make.
Whether you have a claim for personal injury, for medical negligence or for theft of intellectual property, our firm will thoroughly evaluate your claim without charge.
Do I need an Attorney?
You deserve to be paid for your injuries, lost wages and damages. But mistakes in the investigation, preparation or handling of your case may be detrimental to your case, decreasing your recovery or, even worse, causing you to lose your case entirely.
In addition, a recent Allstate Insurance Company report stated that settlements paid to individuals who are represented by counsel are generally "three times" that which is paid to individuals not represented by counsel.
This year, even in cases where liability is clear and undisputed, insurance companies are denying claims and individuals are finding it increasing difficult to resolve even their property damage claims or just getting their medical bills paid by the party at fault's insurance company. This "hard line" settlement strategy makes getting an experienced attorney on your side, early on, even more important.
The most important thing is for you to find an attorney who you trust and with whom you can work together closely during the preparation and the trial of your case.
How much will it cost to prosecute my case?
There is no fee unless there is a recovery. Our legal fees are a percentage of the total amount of money we collect for you, payable only when your case is successfully concluded.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
The answer to this question can greatly vary depending on the complexity of your case. However, generally, the average automobile negligence case is typically resolved within 4 to 8 months. If a case goes to litigation, 50% of all cases normally go to trial within one year and the other 50% go to trial within two years. Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.250 provides that it is presumptively reasonable for a civil case to be brought to jury trial within 18 months after the lawsuit is filed.
