Injuries happen in Southern Florida traffic accidents every day. From car crashes to truck and motorcycle collisions, Floridians face challenges all the time. After a serious injury, one option you have is to contact a personal injury attorney to determine whether you have a claim.
Under Florida law, you may have the right to seek compensation if your injuries were caused by someone’s negligence or wrongful action. For many people, the simplest way to file such a claim is to work with an experienced personal injury attorney, who can take care of the many steps of filing a legal claim.
However, not everyone contacts a personal injury attorney after a serious injury or accident. If you have been injured you may want to consider at least consulting with an attorney.
Even if you’re covered by car accident insurance, an attorney can often negotiate with insurance carriers, so you don’t have to worry about that. They can seek out all liable parties and pursue compensation for you, so you don’t leave any money on the table. Since even a simple bone fracture can cost thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost time at work, it can be valuable to make sure you’re getting the compensation you deserve.
When Should I Call an Attorney?
The best time to call an attorney is as soon as possible after your accident. The team at Flaxman Law Group, for example, may be able to come to your hospital room or home if you’re still seriously injured and you can’t come to our Miami, Homestead, or Hollywood offices.
The sooner you call an attorney, the sooner your lawyer can start gathering evidence and putting together a case if you have a claim. They can work to make sure you don’t lose the chance to file a claim.
Your attorney can also protect you sooner if you contact them immediately following your traffic accident. If an insurance company contacts you, for example, an attorney can speak to them on your behalf. This way, you don’t inadvertently say something perfectly innocent that the insurer can later use against you.
Who Should I Call?
It’s important to look for an attorney with these qualities:
- Experience. Look for an attorney who has experience with cases similar to yours. Flaxman Law Group for example, has represented thousands of clients who have been in traffic accidents, including car accidents, bike collisions, and motorcycle crashes. We have a track record of securing over $100 million on behalf of these and our other clients.
- Availability. A local traffic accident attorney is familiar with local laws. In addition, a local attorney should be someone who takes your calls and is available when you need them. You may have questions during your claim, and someone who is available is important to help offer support when you need it.
- Trustworthiness. Look for an attorney you’re comfortable with. Trust is important in this professional relationship.
- Willingness to pursue your claim. Some attorneys take on many cases and settle quickly. You want an attorney who is willing to seek the fairest compensation for you, even if it means going to court. Look for an attorney who has experience with both negotiations and trials. This can indicate they are willing to pursue a case until their client gets fair compensation.
