Millions of people are injured every year due to someone else’s negligence. If you were hurt in a car crash or slipped and fell due to no fault of your own, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim. Successful personal injury claimants can receive hundreds of dollars to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other additional costs.
Personal injury cases are legal disputes that come to the forefront when one person experiences an accident or injury, and someone else might be responsible for the damage for that harm or injury. You have the complete right to seek justice from the party-at-fault and our personal injury lawyers in Florida, who can ensure you receive a fair compensation amount. The lawyers make sure the highest payout possible.
Having an experienced personal injury attorney handle your personal injury claim is always advisable to protect the injured party's best interests. Injured parties should not speak with the insurance company or its representatives directly and should only have their attorney communicate with insurance company representatives. Some may file a claim with the insurance company themselves, but going it alone without representation by an attorney would be highly unwise. Self-representation leaves the injured party entirely at the mercy of the insurance company, whose financial interests are directly opposed to those of the injured party. Insurance adjusters do not represent the injured party's best interests. They will often seek to minimize any amounts paid to settle a personal injury claim by denying the claim or refusing to pay certain damages.
What Influences the Payout Amount?
Injuries: The nature and severity of your injuries will have the maximum impact on how much you can expect to receive for your claim. The more serious your injuries are, the more likely it is that you will receive substantial medical expenses, lost income, and other damages. All of these count towards a higher settlement.
Evidence: Accident cases, mainly car accident cases, heavily depend on evidence. You must keep witness and damage records of your accident. The settlement amount depends on the evidence you provide to support your claim.
Florida Insurance: Florida is a no-fault insurance system. The insurance carrier covers each driver’s accident expense. You can file a claim against the at-fault driver if there is property damage. It is recommended that Florida drivers carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection and property damage liability insurance. You need to check your policy to see how much coverage you can have.
Insurance Limits: Insurance policy limits can keep settlement offers low. The insurance company doesn’t provide a settlement over the policy limits, even if the case might otherwise be worth more.
