Severe injuries often involved in accident claims include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

South Florida personal injury FAQ

Should I get a personal injury lawyer if I was hurt in an accident?

Yes, seeking legal representation after an accident is advisable, as a lawyer can help protect your rights, navigate complex legal processes, and advocate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation for any damages or injuries incurred. Also, studies show that people who consult lawyers, on average, collect more compensation than those who do not. This is true even after the lawyer’s fee is paid.

What happens if the insurance company doesn’t offer me enough money?

If the insurance company doesn't offer you enough money to cover your damages and losses after an accident, you have the right to negotiate with them or pursue legal action. Consulting with a lawyer experienced in negotiating with insurance companies and handling personal injury cases can help you spot and reject lowball settlements while seeking fair compensation.

I was injured at a family or friend’s house, but don’t want to sue. What can I do?

Unfortunately, the way the insurance injury compensation system is set up, to get money for accident-related medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and other damages, you must file a claim against the property owner. If the claim is rejected, then you may have to file a lawsuit. It is important to remember that you are not fighting with someone you care about. You’re in conflict with the insurance company. Typically, compensation collected through claims and lawsuits is paid by the insurance company – not your loved one or friend.
