Venice is one of the more beautiful cities in Florida, and one that's rich in history as well. Established in the late 1800s, today it's home to more than 20,000 people. However, it's also the site of numerous accidents due simply to the population and the fact that sometimes accidents happen.
If you're injured in an accident, we know that the weeks following it can be difficult. You need to recover from your injuries, and your finances can take a huge hit during this period as well. But our team of personal injury lawyers can help. If you're unsure as to just what an attorney will do for you or what to expect when you're trying to get compensation, looking at a few key points can help.
How can a lawyer help after an injury?
Finding a good lawyer to help you after you're injured in an accident is a very important step you need to take. Here's a look at some of the key reasons why that is.
We reduce your stress. Negotiating with insurance companies is difficult and stressful, and trying to get compensation out of them at all can be a battle. We do it so you don't have to, letting you focus on improving your health instead of stressing over financial and legal issues.
Attorneys help get you larger settlements. Statistics show that with a personal injury lawyer on your side, you're more likely to get a much larger amount in your settlement than you would otherwise.
We also help you get your settlement faster. Insurance companies work hard to avoid paying out any more money than they absolutely have to. They'll use continuances and other tactics to stall so that when they finally offer you a small settlement you're more likely to accept. But with an attorney on your side, the stats show that insurance companies want to settle quickly and avoid heading to court. You'll get your compensation much faster with us on your side.

How will your firm prove my case?
Our team uses a number of different things to help prove that our clients deserve compensation. We gather evidence and use it to show that you're not at fault and that you deserve a specific amount of compensation. Things we'll use to help prove your case include:
- Police reports
- Witness testimony
- Commercial driving records
- Accident reconstructions
- Medical histories
- Driving records
- And more
Essentially, we have to prove that the other party was negligent or reckless and that their actions led to your injuries. We'll do so in several ways, but no matter which steps we take it's all working towards one goal – getting you what you deserve.
How Is Compensation Calculated?
The amount of compensation that you receive depends on a number of different things. These include:
- Medical costs thus far for injuries
- Estimated future medical costs
- Long term care costs
- Lost wages or reduced salary differences
- Lost wages over the future
- Pain and suffering
Our team will try our best to look at your case and give you the most accurate estimate possible as to what your compensation will be. It's impossible to know with total accuracy, but a solid estimate will help you understand more about what to expect. In the case of pain and suffering, juries and judges often award widely varying amounts, so estimating that is the more difficult part of the process.
