If you’ve been in a car accident anywhere in South Florida, you may want to speak to a car accident attorney before making any decisions about your situation.
While one of the first calls you will make is likely to insurance company, it’s valuable to keep in mind that your insurance company works for their shareholders, not for you. Even though you have been faithfully paying premiums on your insurance, insurance companies are owned by shareholders, who demand the highest profitability. And companies can be more profitable by resolving claims quickly and inexpensively.
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people who have been seriously injured in a traffic accident to not get the amount they need to pay for medical bills and other expenses.
An attorney is different. A personal injury attorney works for your best interests. Their goal is to make sure that you get the fairest compensation so more of your lost income, medical costs, incidental expenses, and other injury related costs are covered.
Of course, not all car accident attorneys are the same. Some have more experience, and some are more qualified to take on your case. If you are looking for an attorney, here’s what to look for:
Experience. Look for an attorney who has years of experience handling cases similar to yours. Be aware that an attorney who takes on contract cases, business claims, or general personal injury cases may not be as familiar with the ins and outs of a car accident case as someone who has dealt with traffic accident cases for years.
- Communication. Look for an attorney who speaks your language, who is easy to contact, and who gets back to you. Look for someone who explains legal concepts in a way that is easy to understand. Your case will depend on you be able to being able to communicate effectively with your attorney to explain your losses and how the accident happened. Excellent communication skills are important.
- Trust. You will be working closely with your attorney, so look for someone who makes you comfortable. Someone who you trust is important to make sure you can work effectively together.
- A good track record. Look for an attorney who has secured settlements of all sizes for their clients. Especially seek out a lawyer who has been able to secure larger settlements for serious illnesses. In addition, look for someone who has been able go all the way to trial. This shows that an attorney is willing to go to court when it is appropriate to do so instead of settling for a smaller amount.
