Don’t Settle Your Case Without an Experienced Attorney on Your Side
It is not uncommon for the insurance company to come forward with a quick cash offer to settle your injury claim soon after the accident. However, if you are unrepresented by legal counsel, the insurance company’s offer is most likely only a fraction of what your claim is actually worth. You may only be looking at your present costs and not thinking about the future and all of the factors that should go into calculating your claim. The insurance company knows this and wants to settle your claim as quickly and as cheaply as possible. On the other hand, once the insurer sees that you are represented by an experienced personal injury attorney who has gone to trial numerous times and won significant jury verdicts, they are much more likely to settle for an appropriate amount. If for whatever reason an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, your lawyer has done the necessary preparation and is ready to take your case to trial and all the way to a jury verdict or appeal if necessary.
Don’t Wait to Contact an Attorney When You Have Been Injured
It is important in any personal injury or wrongful death matter to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer will know the applicable statute of limitations and make sure any lawsuit is filed within the appropriate time frame to secure your rights to a recovery. In addition, there are often other important steps which must be taken very soon after the accident or injury. These include securing and preserving testimony and physical evidence before it is lost, notifying the necessary parties of the incident, and seeking treatment. For instance, unless you seek medical treatment within 14 days of a car accident, you can be barred from recovery of your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits under the Florida law.
