What should I do if I suffer an injury?
If you have been hurt in an accident, the very first thing you should do is seek medical attention, particularly if the injury is serious. However, after receiving medical treatment, you should immediately file a report. The type of report filed will depend on the nature of your injury. For example, if you’re hurt at work, you should report the injury to your supervisor, and if you are in an automobile accident, you should notify the police. Reports are useful in building your personal injury case.
How much is my case worth?
The amount of compensation you receive for your injury depends on the circumstances of your case. One of the primary factors in making this determination is the seriousness of your injury. However, in order to avoid a low payment, you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your case.
What if I was partially at fault?
In Florida, you may be able to recover damages even if you are partially responsible for your injury. However, your recovery may be reduced based on your percentage of fault.
Will I have to go to court?
Many personal injury cases are settled outside of court. Whether or not a case settles depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injury, the specific insurance company involved, and the experience level of your attorney. In order to give yourself the best possible chance of a successful settlement, contact one of our experienced personal injury attorneys today.
