One of the most common types of personal injury cases are automobile accidents. South Florida is one of the busiest and most treacherous places to drive not only in Florida, but in the entire United States. Most people will find themselves in an automobile accident at some point in their life. Being involved in an automobile accident is a traumatic experience, and one can suffer very serious injuries as the result of being in a car accident including whip-lash, disc herniations, concussions, and broken bones. It is critical that you have professional and experienced legal advice from an attorney who regularly practices in the area of personal injury law in order to obtain the best possible result for your car accident case.
Thompson Legal, P.A. represents our personal injury clients on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay any attorney fee up front for legal representation. If we do not obtain a recovery for you, there is no legal fee to be paid.
Accidents happen at all speeds and levels of severity, from a parking lot fender bender to a high speed impact on the highway resulting in a vehicle roll-over. Injuries sustained as the result of both types of accidents can be severe. The significance of the impact can have little correlation to the seriousness of the injury. Additionally, it may take several days, or even weeks, to feel pain or to have a clear picture of what injuries you have sustained. However, a delay in seeking treatment or pursuing your claim can have a major negative impact on your case.
Individuals should take a proactive approach to their claim by hiring an experienced personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can guide you through the claim process, investigate the liability from the adverse party, gather the appropriate documentation to appropriately pursue your claim, and either negotiate a fair settlement with the adverse party’s insurance company, or file suit in Court to pursue your case. Pursuing your claim on your own with the insurance adjuster without an attorney is a mistake. The insurance adjusters are experienced negotiators and do not have your best interest at heart. Instead, they are looking to minimize your claim and pay as little as possible to you for your injuries.
When choosing a personal injury attorney for your car accident case, you should inquire as to whether that attorney focuses on personal injury cases, or whether they specialize in other areas of law. Furthermore, you should find out if the attorney litigates their personal injury cases in Court, or whether they simply settle their cases pre-suit. The insurance companies know which attorney’s file suit and litigate, and which are simply “settlement” attorneys who are not willing to go to Court for their clients.
