Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much is my case worth?
A. It depends on your injury and the amount of insurance coverage available.
Q. How much does it cost to pursue my personal injury case?
A. A personal injury case is prosecuted on a contingency basis, which means there is NO FEE unless we win for you.
Q. Is filing a lawsuit the only thing I can do?
A. Not necessarily – many claims can be settled without filing a lawsuit, but you need legal representation to navigate through your options. Speaking with a personal injury attorney will help you understand your rights and whether you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
Q. If I already hired an attorney, can I fire him/her?
A. Yes, you can always fire your attorney and hire another attorney to represent you in your personal injury case.
Q. I have no health insurance, so how can I seek medical treatment?
A. Florida is a No-Fault state, so your own automobile insurance, under your PIP provision, shall pay for the first $10,000 of medical treatment.
Q. I had a previous injury and now this car crash has made it worse. Do I have a claim?
A. Yes, even if you have prior injuries and those injuries are aggravated from the car crash, you have a potential claim against the at-fault party.
Q. Should I call or give a statement to the other person’s insurance carrier?
A. NEVER speak with the other person’s insurance carrier. Let your attorney handle those conversations, as the insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions to limit your claim.
