What Can a Florida Car Accident Attorney Do For You?

Car accidents are a common occurrence in Florida, but no matter how common they are when they happen to you they can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. If you have been injured in a car accident in Florida, hiring an attorney is one option that can help you navigate the legal process. Let’s look closer at what an attorney can do for you after a Florida car accident.


Evaluate Your Case

The first thing an attorney will do is to determine whether you have a legal claim. They will do so by gathering information about the accident, examining the police report and witness statements, and by looking at any available evidence and medical records.

What attorneys are looking for are any liable parties who may have contributed to your injuries. They are also placing a dollar value on your injuries, so they can understand what fair compensation might look like in your case.  In Florida, you have a claim if someone is liable and caused your injuries and if you have suffered losses because of that party’s negligence.

Negotiate with Insurers

An attorney will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, so you don’t have to. Insurance companies often try to settle for the lowest possible amount, because it means more profits for them and for their shareholders. A lowball offer may not fully compensate you for your damages, however.

An attorney works to negotiate a fair settlement that covers more of your expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This way, you may need to pay less out of pocket.

File a Lawsuit

If negotiations with the insurance company are unsuccessful, an attorney may advise you to file a legal claim. This involves complex process that includes filing a complaint with the court and serving it to the other parties.

An attorney can help with all the details and can represent you in court if necessary.

Gather Evidence

An attorney may interview witnesses, gather medical records, secure police reports, and analyze the accident scene. He or she may seek out any security cameras that may have caught the accident. An attorney can also work with private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and other professionals to build a strong case.

Calculate Damages

An experienced attorney has worked with many injured people and understands how much a serious injury can cost. He or she will examine your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses to put an accurate dollar amount on your damages. Your attorney may work with medical professionals to understand the potential long-term costs of your injuries, too, so you can seek compensation for expected ongoing treatment.

Protect Your Rights

An attorney also protects your rights after you have been injured, working to make sure you don’t sign away your rights. He or she works to ensure you’re treated fairly throughout the legal process, including representing you in court, negotiating with insurance carriers, and working with other parties in the case.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
