Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Cases

Presented by a Coral Springs Personal Injury Lawyer

How do I know what my personal injury case is worth?

Every case is different, with its own unique set of facts and circumstances. If you have been seriously injured in an accident or event in the greater Coral Springs area due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct, you should consult with me as a Coral Springs personal injury attorney. I can review your situation and advise you on what to expect based on the specific facts of your case. The damages you may receive will be based on the nature and extent of the injuries you sustained. You may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disability.

Can my case be settled outside of court or will I have to go to court?

Statistically, most cases are settled outside of court, before they ever go to trial. A personal injury claim can be settled at any time. As your attorney on the case, I can negotiate with the pertinent insurance company to settle your claim. If the settlement is not a fair one, I can also represent you in court to pursue a settlement that is commensurate with the damages suffered due to injury.

Why do I need a lawyer? Shouldn't I just negotiate with the insurance adjuster myself?

You should not negotiate with the insurance adjuster. The adjuster is looking out for the interests of the insurance company, not you. Insurance companies are interested in keeping their settlements to a minimum. Also, they will respond more readily to an attorney than to you as the claimant. Furthermore, insurance companies have attorneys working on their behalf; why shouldn’t you? As your Coral Springs personal injury lawyer, I will act as your advocate in working to secure the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount that can be collected in a personal injury case?

There is no minimum or maximum amount of compensation that can be collected. Financial compensation with depend on the factors involved in your case, including the extent of your injuries, how long it is expected to take to recover from them, and more.

When does an individual have a right to recover damages?

Generally, if you have been injured by another, whether another person or company, due to negligence on their part, you have a right to recover compensation for the damages you have suffered. What needs to be shown is that you were injured through negligence on the part of the other party. Police reports, photos of the accident scene, witness testimony, and other evidence will demonstrate this in your claim or lawsuit.
