Personal Injury Questions and Answers
Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?
The role of a personal injury lawyer is to protect your rights and to represent you in a court of law. The court systems and laws can be a complex web of sometimes confusing information, and if your personal injury case needs to be tried by a jury, a personal injury lawyer is there to help you through that process.
Most lawyers will be paid through a contingency fee, which means you only pay your court fees and lawyer fee if the lawyer you’ve chosen can win your case.
What do I do when an insurance company calls me about my injury?
Refuse to give a recorded statement and tell them to call back later. Then, call a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer. When an insurance company calls you about your personal injury, their main job is to assign some of the fault to you in any way they can. They’ll ask if you were on your phone, distracted, or something else that may attribute blame for the accident to you. Don’t let them. Our lawyers are equipped with the knowledge on how to deal with insurance companies. Let us protect your rights.
Should I call the police at the scene of a personal injury?
Calling the police is often the right choice. Too much time can pass between an accident and a settlement, and those at fault may go through a lot of work trying to cover up whatever caused your injury.
Having a police record of the incident allows the court a small, unbiased snapshot of the day of the injury that documents the cause, environment, and other things that may be used in your case.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a personal injury?
Florida statutes state you have four years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit for compensation. In some cases, when an injury is not obvious or when it takes time to discover the injury, an extension on that four-year limit may be applied, though it is rare to receive it. Most personal injury cases will not be heard after more than four years from the date of the incident.
