In matters of personal injury, we understand how important it is to offer legal services responsive to our clients’ needs. Whether you seek simple advice or full representation, we’ll be here for you at all times.
Personal injury cases can cover a variety of situations. Our attorneys that specialize in Premises Liability will be examining people who own, lease, and operate a property that you were injured on. If you are hurt by a certain product in any form, Florida law states the manufacturer faces liability, and we can help you work through that.
If an accident occurs in an automobile or motorcycle, there are certain negligence laws that can apply to operation. In the event of a wrongful death, the family and relatives have a right to sue the guilty party.
All of these circumstances fall under the umbrella of personal injury law. That’s why we take great care in understanding your individual experience and customize a legal plan that will meet your needs.
If you have been injured or if you are in an accident, there generally are a few steps you will take during the personal injury legal process. This includes:
- Filing a claim
- Attempting to negotiate a favorable settlement
- Filing a lawsuit
- Trying the case or alternative dispute resolution
The very first step is to notify any insurance companies involved of the accident, specifically the at-fault party. Once the claim is filed and all medical treatment (including physical therapy) has been completed, it is time to gather all of your medical records and files.
At this junction, an attorney can send a settlement demand package to the claims adjuster which includes copies of your medical bills, records, and lost wage documentation. If the party admits fault, an initial settlement offer should come through. If an agreement cannot be made, the case will be filed in a court of law.
