Englewood is a very diverse area, and while it's not as heavily visited as some other parts of Florida it's still a popular destination for tourists and a location that residents love to call home. However, it's harder to enjoy it if you're injured in an accident within the area.

We know just how difficult that recovery period can be, and that's why we've spent more than 20 years building up a reputation in the court system. That reputation is that we'll actually fight for our clients, and the insurance companies know that when someone is represented by our team that we're serious.

If you've been injured in an accident, we can help. To begin with, looking at some of the basics of personal injury law will help you understand just what to expect over the coming weeks and months.


How can a lawyer help after an injury?

Personal Injury

By turning to a professional legal team you'll give yourself lots of advantages. The level of stress you have will be reduced, and you can focus on healing instead of on legal action or negotiating with an insurance company. But there are a couple of key ways that our team can really help that are worth learning more about.

  • The statistics show that when you have a lawyer on your side, insurance companies are far more likely to settle out of court than they would be if you were on your own. The reason is that with a team like ours fighting for you, insurance companies know that we are prepared to head all the way to court to get you what you're owed. They want to avoid this, so they'll settle faster.

  • You also improve your chances of getting a larger settlement amount. Insurance companies want to save money, and they will always offer low amounts in a settlement to avoid paying what you really deserve. With an attorney on your side, you're more likely to get a larger amount that's closer to fair.

In short, with the help of an attorney it's likely that you receive a larger settlement amount and that you get your money faster. When you're trying to recover from injuries, those are two very important things.

What is the process of an injury claim case?

Any injury claim case begins with an attorney providing you with a basic consultation to determine whether or not it's likely that you have the grounds to seek compensation. Basically, the attorney needs to be able to ascertain that your injuries were caused as a result of someone's negligent or reckless behavior.

If the attorney feels that you do have a case, they'll start working to gather evidence to support you and your claim. In most cases, negotiations with the insurance company or the legal team of the other party will begin shortly thereafter. During this time, the two sides will discuss your settlement. We'll work hard to get you the highest amount possible and ensure that you really do get the kind of settlement that you're owed.

If a settlement amount can't be reached, your case may go to trial. Not all legal teams are experienced at this, and some simply don't have the resources to do so. But our firm has a long history of going to trial for our clients, and the industry knows this. If we have to fight in court for you, we will.

Once the case has been completed and you're awarded your settlement, we deduct our fees from it before you receive the remaining amount. This way, you don't have to worry about trying to find the money to pay a lawyer to help you – all fees are paid out of the settlement.

How will your firm prove my case?

We use a number of steps to help prove your case. At the heart of any personal injury lawsuit is the question of fault. We need to prove two things: That the other party was either negligent or reckless, and that their actions led to your injuries.

Each case is different, but in general we'll use several different things to help show that you're entitled to compensation. Some of the things we use to prove your case include:

  • Witness testimony
  • Accident reports from authorities
  • Black box data and driving logs from commercial truckers
  • Property repair reports
  • Medical histories
  • Inspection results

The kind of information we need to rely on will depend upon the nature of your injury and what caused it, but the bottom line is that we use whatever elements are needed to help show that you aren't at fault and that someone else's negligence led to your injuries.

How Is Compensation Calculated?

One of the most confusing aspects of your injury cases is the compensation amount you receive. Numerous factors can go into this including:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

In the case of medical costs and lost wages, several factors need to be considered including the amount you've already spent or lost as well as an estimation of the total amount your injuries will cost over the future. Consulting with experts may be needed as well.

Frequent Accidents that can result in personal injury lawsuit

Some of the most common types of accidents that lead to personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Commercial trucking accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Distracted driver accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents

We represent all of these types of cases and more, ensuring that your rights are protected no matter what type of event caused your injuries.
