What should you do after an accident
What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal services to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence of another person, company, government agency or any entity.
Do I even need a Lawyer?
Though it is not necessary, when you get injured and feel pain after the accident or incident, it is necessary to call and consult with a lawyer, since they are the ones that will know who to refer you to. They will also know how to get the maximum amount of compensation so that you don’t lose money out of pocket.
You might also need a lawyer if the other party got injured and is feeling pain after the accident. Laws can get complicated in Florida and especially in Miami, so once you are getting sued or maybe held responsible for the injuries of the other person, then it is important to get a lawyer that will know the ins and outs of the law and how to deal with the case at hand.
What determines the value of a case?
The value of a case is determined by how severe the damages are to either party.
General damages like pain, suffering, and mental anguish play a big role. There is another type of damage called special damages that involve lost wages and medical expenses. The experience your lawyer has in these fields and how much he/she can get you from those damages is what will determine how valuable your cases will be.
Generally, any amount of damage done to you can be valuable, as long as there is someone that was negligible and irresponsible.
Do I have to go to court?
In most cases it is not necessary to go to court because the accident and damages can be covered by your insurance. In Florida, insurance will cover for you regardless if you were at fault or not at fault. So most of the financial damage can be covered, as long as the damages aren’t that big.
However, if the damages are severe and it seems that you may lose some days at work because of damage to your car or you yourself, then I highly recommend going to court and filing a suit against the other party so that you can recover what you lost or will lose financially.
Another reason why you may be summoned to court is because YOU are being sued by the other party for damages. This is a common move and this is mainly why I recommend hiring a lawyer. You can be protected and also in the know of what is happening to you. In this case, the driver is basically trying to make you responsible for what happened and have you pay for the accident, even though it may not be your fault.
Should I hire a lawyer for my accident case?
If you are in the middle of an accident case, then the answer is always yes. You should always hire or know a lawyer just in case. Although you may not be personally held responsible at the moment, there are many times that someone will decide to sue you because they were injured in the accident.
It does not necessarily mean that it is your fault, but it is possible that the other party decides to sue you for damages. This is definitely when people panic and start to go crazy because they are being sued for money. Thousands and thousands of dollars that you could possibly lose and there are so many terms that you have no idea about. One wrong move and everything could go down the drain.
Because of this precaution and the possibility that you may be dragged into a long legal battle, it is recommended that you keep a lawyer that you personally know so that you can be covered IF the situation gets messy.
When should I hire an attorney after being in an accident?
Ideally, you should hire an attorney immediately and consult them immediately. Especially if you are held responsible for the accident and you feel wronged, you need to hire a good attorney to cover you.
All the insurance companies have teams of attorneys that IMMEDIATELY look at the case and determine what they can do. Obviously, you by yourself cannot just contest a whole team of attorneys and lawyers. That is when we step in.

What are the duties of a Personal Injury Lawyer?

When you are hurt, you may have had to take days off work, pay for the medical bills, and suffer through the psychological and physical pain.
It is my duty as a personal injury lawyer to make sure that you are financially compensated for the damages done to you from negligence. It could be anything, from not putting up a warning sign, or a driver fell asleep on the wheel, or a worker not looking where he was going. Anything where the entity responsible did not give a warning or was not careful, we are able to help you get financial compensation.
