If you are involved in a Tampa automobile accident, there are some issues you will be required to resolve. Often times, when someone is injured in an accident, their focus is on dealing with their injuries and not contacting an attorney. With that in mind, there are at least five reasons why retaining a personal injury lawyer should be at the top of the list.
A personal injury attorney has experience assessing claims
Each personal injury case is unique and warrants its own settlement amount, which will be determined by jurisdiction and the severity of the car accident
. The attorney will be on your side, ensuring you receive the compensation owed under local, state and/or federal law.
There are typically no fees if an attorney does not recover
In Florida, personal injury attorneys
work on a contingency fee basis, which means that if a case is not settled or won, there will be no fees owed by the client to the attorney. In fact, Hunter Law covers the cost of investigating and litigating a claim up front, meaning that our clients do not have to pay us anything unless we prevail.
A personal injury attorney will help cut through the red tape
An attorney will help you navigate the maze of paperwork required to resolve your personal injury claim
satisfactorily. This is important and valuable as you try to recover from your injuries. Instead of focusing on forms and documents from insurance companies, you can focus on getting better and leave the burdensome paperwork to your attorney.
An attorney will help you reach a better outcome
It is always within your rights to represent yourself and negotiate with the other driver and their insurance adjuster. However, plaintiffs who retain knowledgeable legal representation
get improved results with an increased payout. Your attorney will know what to ask for and how to get it. With their understanding of the law, your attorney will make sure that you do not inadvertently do anything that would prevent you from recovering under other policies of insurance. This includes your own uninsured motorist coverage.
