When to talk to a personal injury attorney

Suffering an injury accident can lead to many pressing questions and concerns. "How will I pay my medical bills?" "Will I fully recover?" Speaking with a personal injury lawyer could put your fears to rest.

A lawyer can give you trustworthy information about your specific accident, as well as related Florida laws in general. Whether you were injured in a car accident or attacked by a dog, a lawyer can help you recover financial compensation.

If you have any questions or concerns

Personal injury lawyers are here to help in your time of need. Good lawyers are not trying to trick you or turn your misfortune into profit. A lawyer can answer your questions after an accident, such as how long you have to file a lawsuit and what your case could be worth. Look for a law firm that offers free, no-obligation consultations so you can gain valuable insights without risk or cost.

A free consultation with a local attorney will help you decide if you that law firm can be of service. Get a second opinion from a different firm if the first attorney says you have no case or if you don't feel they have your best interests at heart.

If you have serious injuries

If you suffered serious or catastrophic injuries because of someone else's negligence or intentional misconduct, it could help you to talk to an attorney. A lawyer may have the ability to negotiate higher settlement amounts from insurance companies than you could get on your own (even when subtracting lawyer fees). Speaking to an attorney can prevent you from settling for less than your injuries are worth — or from getting no money at all.

If the other party denies liability 

You would be at a disadvantage if the defendant and their insurance company deny responsibility. Making an argument for liability requires specific documentation. You might get in over your head -- or inadvertently say something that could be used against you.

If you lost a loved one

You may need counsel from a wrongful death attorney if your spouse, child, parent or sibling lost his or her life in an accident. A lawyer can help you find out if your family has grounds for a lawsuit under Florida's wrongful death laws. Your family could be eligible for significant compensation after a fatal accident. A lawyer can help you hold the at-fault party legally responsible for causing your loved one's unexpected death.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is not as daunting as it sounds. It is simply part of the legal process to show that you have a good faith claim for damages. The majority of cases are settled out of court. As with a personal injury case, you pay nothing up front and you do not owe legal fees unless the firm recovers money on your behalf.
