Why Should I Seek Compensation?
The media has created a somewhat negative stigma associated with seeking financial compensation from an accident. But the reality is that when you’re injured, it can put you in a serious financial bind. If you aren’t responsible for your injuries, why should you have to shoulder that burden? Seeking compensation helps you escape from your financial burden and also lets you focus on healing physically and mentally. It’s an important step for those injured in an accident.
Why Do I Need An Attorney After Being Injured?
It’s important to seek compensation for injuries, but it’s not always easy to understand where to begin. Working with an attorney offers numerous benefits. Our team can help you understand what your rights are, will help speed up the process of getting your settlement, and more. With an attorney on your side, the insurance companies understand that you’re serious about getting compensation. They’re more likely to work with our legal team to reach an agreement that is fair. In short, working with an attorney ensures that you get the compensation you are owed and that you get it as soon as possible.
What Do Fault And Negligence Mean?
Fault and negligence are the two primary factors in showing that you deserve compensation for your injuries. Fault simply refers to the burden of blame that one party carries. In order to receive financial restitution, you must show that the other party was at fault. However, negligence is equally important.
Negligence is the key to receiving compensation when involved in Florida personal injury law. You must show that the other party acted in a negligent manner. This could include driving drunk, failing to maintain proper safety guidelines on their property, and more. It’s not always easy to show negligence, but your attorney will be able to do so.
I’ve Been Offered A Settlement.
Why Shouldn’t I Take It?
Being offered a settlement can seem like an easy way to gain closure for your accident. But many initial settlement offers are actually a tactic used by insurance companies or legal teams. Instead of offering you a fair amount, they offer an amount that is far lower than what you actually deserve.
A fair settlement includes everything from your lost wages at work and medical bills to estimated future costs and lost wages. This can be complex to understand, and your attorney will work to make sure that you don’t accept a settlement offer that is lower than what you’re actually owed. In short, taking a settlement without speaking to legal counsel could mean that you are still left with some financial burden.
What Can I Expect From Getting An Attorney?
