5 Reasons Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

1. Insurance Companies Do Not Have Your Best Interests at Heart:

Insurance companies are ultimately trying to protect their bottom line—not to compensate you fairly for injuries. Hiring an attorney can be the best way to ensure you have an advocate protecting your interests.

2. Statute of Limitations:

Statutes of limitation vary by location. If the process is not completed within a certain time frame, you will lose your rights in the state of Florida. An experienced auto accident attorney can properly identify which statute of limitations rule applies to your specific situation.

3. Filing Your Personal Injury Claim Entails Compliance With Strict Rules:

Dealing with the paperwork, rules, and regulations associated with filing a Florida personal injury claim is a complex task. An experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through the process required by your state to file.

4. Damages Due to Your Injuries May Be More Extensive Than You Think:

Florida laws define damages under several different categories like pain, mental duress, medical expenses and more. Without an experienced attorney who is aware of the laws in the jurisdiction of your accident, you may literally give money away.

5. Proving Your Case Is Complicated:

Filing your case is very complex. Proving your case, even more so. Having a legal professional experienced in ascertaining all of the factors is absolutely CRITICAL.

If the negligence of another party can be proven, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party. In the United States, this system is complex and controversial. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential due to the fact that these types of cases can become extremely complicated.

To make a claim you must prove that the person you believe is responsible for your personal injury, loss or damage:

– Owed you a duty of care and breached that duty of care.

– You suffered a loss, injury, or other damage.

– Your loss, injury, or damage occurred as a result of the person’s breach of their duty of care.

Understanding negligence and Personal Injury Law

The justice system is composed of various legal specialty fields. Personal injury law can be a challenge to understand and it is important to find one of the many personal injury lawyers specializing in this field. A personal injury attorney will help you to better understand your rights and what to expect if you’ve been injured.

Law Books - Tampa Personal Injury AttorneyPersonal Injury law covers a number of different areas, including product liability, auto accidents, brain injury, medical negligence, food poisoning, canine bites, and slip and falls. When a personal injury lawyer represents a client in a personal injury lawsuit, the burden of proving negligence is the fundamental objective to achieving a successful verdict for the client.

If the cause of an accident is found the be the fault of an individual(s), business, or entity, negligence is generally alleged. If that person or business failed to act in a reasonable manner to prevent an injury, then the entity must assume responsibility for the accident.

Whether it was directly or indirectly caused can be a significant factor in determining damages. For example, was a needed repair that led to an accident known about and overlooked for months, or was it discovered at the time of the accident?

If you are not familiar with personal injury litigation, proving negligence can be a difficult undertaking. If you are seeking to hold a negligent person accountable for your injury, it is important to have a competent personal injury lawyer on your side.

When a person becomes a victim of personal injury, they often feel either physical and/or psychological pain. Action can be taken to hold the negligent party responsible by seeking compensation for the inflicted injuries.

When seeking accountability, typically an attorney specializing in personal injury will be hired. The attorney representing the client will normally assess the case to determine negligence, and either attempt to get a fair settlement or litigate the case in civil court. Monetary damages sought can include: present and future medical bills, loss of earnings, loss of future earnings, permanent disability, and pain and suffering.

If a personal injury case goes to trial, personal injury lawyers have the know-how and comprehension to organize and argue a case to prove negligence. The amount that can be awarded by a judge or jury will be calculated according to the gravity of the injury. Depending on the type injury, there are certain ways to prove negligence. As an illustration, a drunk driver that gets in an accident with another vehicle will typically require a blood alcohol test to prove negligence.

The Tampa Attorneys at Fernandez Law Group come with the knowledge and skill in personal injury law needed to assemble a very persuasive case that’s effectively designed to prove the defendant is negligent. Our attorneys act in the best interest of the client to secure fair compensation. The legal professionals at Fernandez Law Group understand that personal injury lawsuits require analysis, accumulating proof, interviewing witnesses, and getting the suitable medical witnesses, and settlement negotiations.
