If you were injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another person, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you in holding the other party accountable. Insurance companies will usually try to limit your claim or settlement, therefore it is critical to work with an experienced Florida car accident attorney who can make a strong case on your behalf.
Here are some often asked questions from Florida car accident victims:
What is the deadline for submitting a personal injury claim?
You have four years in Florida from the date of the accident to submit a personal injury claim. Unless there is an exception to the statute of limitations in your case (which is uncommon), your claim will expire after four years and you will be unable to file a lawsuit to recover damages.
If I hire a lawyer, do I have to appear in court?
No, the majority of personal injury lawsuits in Florida are resolved outside of court; very few cases proceed all the way to trial. The likelihood of obtaining a settlement with the insurance provider without going to court can be estimated by your attorney.
If my injuries seem minor, do I still have a claim?
It doesn’t matter if you don’t immediately feel any injuries; sometimes adrenaline keeps you from noticing them all, and other times the most serious injuries take longer to manifest. It’s crucial to have a checkup as soon as possible. A Florida personal injury attorney should also be contacted right away; they can assist you in determining whether or not you have a claim for compensation.
