Florida registers more than 200,000 car accidents annually according to Florida DMV. That’s over 500 car accidents daily. According to the same source, over 2,500 people die in these accidents every year while nearly 200,000 others escape with injuries. As if that’s not enough, there are the thousands of property liability, medical malpractice, sexual abuse, and children injury incidents reported annually within the state. In other words, personal injuries lurk everywhere.
When these incidents occur, both the victims and their loved ones can suffer immeasurably. Hefty medical bills, psychological trauma, loss of income-earning potential, and physical disability are just some of the consequences you may have to live with long after a personal injury incident. It can be devastating!
Amid all that sorrow, though, you always have a chance to salvage something. By filing a personal injury claim, you can force the at-fault to take responsibility for the damages by at the very least paying you a compensation.
But that’s where you also need to be very smart. While any lawyer can win a personal injury claim, only the best personal injury lawyer can get you the best outcome. Here’s why;
A lawyer who has never handled a personal injury case won’t understand the pain you’re going through. They might be willing to help, yes, but only because it’s their profession. A personal injury lawyer who has handled hundreds or even thousands of similar cases, on the other hand, will understand exactly how it feels to be in such a situation.
Insurance companies are the some of the most difficult people to deal with. With their eyes firmly on paying the least compensation possible, or paying nothing at all, they’ll get out of their way to find the best lawyers to intimidate you. The best way to counteract these antics is to hire the best personal injury lawyer with plenty of experience in insurance law.
The success of any personal injury claim hinges on the evidence presented to the court. Collecting, preparing, and presenting this evidence could be the difference between winning and losing the case. A professional personal injury lawyer knows when to bring in an accident investigator and even an accident reconstruction engineer to help present the best evidence.
There are strict rules and guidelines when it comes to filing a personal injury claim. These rules range from state-specific statutes of limitations to complex paperwork filing procedures. The at-faults insurance company lawyers know these laws and will be waiting to exploit them to your disadvantage. You need someone with similar knowledge; a personal injury lawyers who understand these laws inside out.
