There will likely be some form of investigative work to ascertain the facts of what happened. As part of that process, the attorney will need to identify ‘deep pockets’ or sources of recovery for the victim/client so to ensure monetary sources to pursue. They will likely need to be in contact with insurance companies about the status of the case/claim, status of medical treatment and as such be in contact with medical providers and their staff. They will need to collect evidence, whether that be in the format of photographs, videos, repair reports, estimate of repairs, medical records, billing, No-Fault PIP log indicating billing submitted and paid, perhaps even health insurance should bills have been routed there, and all other relevant parties. They should be in contact with the client on a regular basis learning about treatment status, health, repairs and the like. If the matter involved a death or an injury making the injured party represented by someone else, an Agent, Personal Representative, Guardian, etc.,  even another family member, being in touch with that person/persons so to help facilitate whatever needs to be done. Eventually, when the attorney acquires enough information, he/she will typically prepare a demand letter accompanied by all relevant documentation to submit for consideration with the insurer or responsible party or their counsel for consideration. If all else fails, they will also facilitate the need to prepare and file a Complaint and serve process on the responsible party in a process called litigation where the court and typically 6 jurors will ultimately decide the outcome of your case…

A personal injury attorney can drop your case. Typical reasons are if they cannot locate ‘deep pockets’ or sources of recovery for the victim, if the client has not been totally truthful with the lawyer or has not disclosed all the pertinent facts that can affect the case/claim, if the facts eventually reveal that the client was at fault for the incident, when a lawyer and client cannot agree on the prosecution of the claim/case or even disagree as the valuation of the case/claim. If the case is in litigation, often the lawyer has to ask the Court permission to withdraw from a case.

However, keep in mind that most retainer agreements are in writing in Florida and the retainer agreement may have provisions in same as to how you can discharge a personal injury attorney and what you may owe that attorney for their time and money already invested/spent on your matter prior to firing him/her. Sometimes, if contingency, the attorney would be able to receive, for example, what is called ‘quantum meruit’ which is basically what the attorney would have collected per hour times the amount of hours spent on the case until fired but that money often is not due until the client realizes the contingency…when there is a successful settlement or jury verdict favoring the client either resolving the case on his/her own or with the assistance of other personal injury attorney.

What can a personal injury attorney do for me?

The answer is typically to attempt to maximize your recovery and be there for you every step of the way during an unfamiliar, often confusing and if not experienced in these matters, a difficult, process.  Most people who are injured by the negligence of another don’t know how to process of a claim and do not know how to start it.  This can cause stress, anxiety and nervousness over the process itself. Most often, those that are injured already have enough to worry or become anxious about.  A personal injury attorney can alleviate some of that anxiety in a variety of ways throughout the claims process.  Keep in mind that the insurance companies, the party you will likely be going up against, do this type of thing every day…it is part of their job.  Injured people do not.  This is why having an experienced personal injury attorney is advisable.

How much can a personal injury attorney make?

How much a personal injury attorney can make is usually governed by law. In Florida for example, there is a statute that limits the amount of an attorney fee.  Typically, personal injury attorneys will charge a percentage of any recovery. That percentage is typically via Florida Law. For example, if involving a private party, many times attorneys are only allowed to collect a 1/3 contingency rate up to the first $1 million dollars. If the matter involves litigation, that fee can escalate to 40%. Another example is if you are hit by a government vehicle, the contingency is usually fixed at 25% regardless of outcome. So it depends on the circumstances of the situation. Naturally, these fees are separate and apart from the costs needed to prosecute a case.

What does personal injury attorney do?

Personal injury attorneys will typically assist a client from the very beginning after an incident has happened. There will likely be some form of investigative work to ascertain the facts of what happened. As part of that process, the attorney will need to identify ‘deep pockets’ or sources of recovery for the victim/client so to ensure monetary sources to pursue. They will likely need to be in contact with insurance companies about the status of the case/claim, status of medical treatment and as such be in contact with medical providers and members of their offices. They will need to collect evidence, whether that be in the format of photographs, videos, repair reports, estimate of repairs, medical records, billing, No-Fault PIP log indicating billing submitted and paid, perhaps even health insurance should bills have been routed there, and all other relevant parties. They should be in contact with the client on a regular basis learning about treatment status, health, repairs and the like. If the matter involved a death or an injury making the injured party represented by someone else, an Agent, Personal Representative, Guardian, etc.,  even another family member, being in touch with that person/persons so to help facilitate whatever needs to be done. Eventually, when the attorney knows enough information, he/she will typically prepare a demand letter accompanied by all relevant documentation to submit for consideration with the insurer or responsible party or their counsel for consideration. If all else fails, they will also facilitate the need to prepare and file a complaint and serve process on the responsible party in a process called litigation where the court and typically 6 jurors will ultimately decide the outcome of your case…

After the incident happens and the claim moves forward, insurers will want updates and if you don’t have a lawyer, you will be the responsible party to keep them updated.  For example, this would give the insurance company several times to use your own words against you so to defend themselves against your claim.  Typically, a personal injury attorney can provide status updates to the other side for you. They do this by requesting and obtaining information and regularly providing same to the other side so to keep your claim active.  Another matter can be harassed by past due bills secondary to the injuries sustained.  A personal injury attorney can help with this situation so your number one priority is getting better.

Should pre-trial settlement negotiations no longer be an option for one reason or another, a personal injury attorney typically organizes the information obtained for the future should the matter need to go to trial.  That possibility can never be overlooked and needs to be thought of throughout the process and not shortly before you need to file suit.  While otherwise obvious, the average person shouldn’t proceed with a personal injury lawsuit on their own.  This is where a personal injury attorney could be helpful.

Another complication is related to your health or other insurance you may have. They may assert liens for reimbursement of injury-related treatment bills they have paid out of your recovery…the process is called subrogation.  It is important not to ignore same since there are laws in some instances that mandate reimbursement to them from any recovery. Also, sometimes bills for unpaid services or liens are invalid and should be protested and perhaps not paid out of an award.  Which liens are valid then?  This becomes a legal question all of its own. Often on valid liens you do not have to fully reimburse them.  There are often formulas used to calculate lower payments and a qualified personal injury attorney knows how to deal with this.

Typically once medical treatment has completed, when bills, liens and all other damages are known, including how the injuries affect your life, your medical bills, liens for reimbursement claimed by your own health insurance, wage loss and costs made necessary by the incident, at that time a personal injury attorney can value your claim better.  Most people do not know how to do this and this is where a personal injury attorney can help. Unlike a mathematical formula, it is often not as easy or certain to ascertain values of a case/claim.  Since every case/claim is different, both in fault and liability as well as with injuries and damages, a qualified personal injury attorney can help evaluate same.

Once a personal injury attorney evaluates the claim and gives it a value range, we usually try to prepare a demand for consideration to the insurance carrier and/or responsible party so to see if the matter can resolve amicably by reaching a settlement.  Personal injury attorneys should go this route since trial/litigation is expensive and, like Las Vegas, is a ‘gamble’ as to what a jury verdict can be. By trying to go the settlement route, injured person can come to a ‘sure thing’ and be is compensated relatively quickly.  In that process, a qualified personal injury attorney can often assist you on whether you should accept an offer of settlement, or, if insufficient, whether to proceed to trial and take your chances.  Often, the decision is not complicated. Unfortunately, at times, it could be. By negotiating back and forth, the personal injury attorney can gauge the direction of the case/claim.  It is important to keep in mind those insurance companies and their attorneys are very experienced in negotiating settlements; their goal is to pay the least amount of money possible so to resolve the claim/case.  Most victims of accidents and the like do not have a clue on how to value their claims or negotiate thereafter so they unfortunately have little chance of maximizing settlement value on their own. In that case, only the insurance companies and responsible parties will achieve their goal but at your expense! However, if the responsible party/insurance carrier does not extend a fair value for the case, unfortunately trial and filing suit becomes the only route to possible recovery.  Most people can be intimidated by the litigation process and the presence of being in Court.  The whole process from the rule of court, the rules of evidence, how to select a jury and how the information is presented to a jury can be overwhelming.  Additionally, medical experts/doctors are deposed and such can be a painstaking and expensive process.  Other expert testimony may be needed such as an accident reconstuctionist, engineer, vocational rehabilitation expert, economist, etc. so their statements can be used to help elaborate your damages.  Legal and factual arguments will need to be made.  Ultimately, a jury needs to be persuaded to rule in your favor. Most victims of an accident or injury cannot do this alone.  In the end, it is important to appreciate that a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney can help maximize your recovery whether by settlement or verdict.

Are personal injury lawyers worth it?

Personal injury lawyers are worth it since with their experience and skill they can garner far more than you can get on your own. Often, clients would come in with stories how they were offered $1,500 or some crazy number like $2,354.68 as if a viable formula was used to calculate exactly what their case was worth by an insurance carrier. Many times, the settlement values of these cases can be 10 times or more than what these initial offer are. Keep in mind that insurance companies are experienced and it is their business to minimize your claim and thus their payout of your damages so to maximize profits for the company. While they are trained to sound friendly and some clients actually believe they are friends with the insurance representative after the incident, the insurance company is NOT your friend. An experienced and qualified personal injury attorney can help you identify these and other pitfalls therefore making what they get for you despite their fee well worth it for you. Additionally, knowing that you do not have a personal injury lawyer actually can hurt you since ‘lowball offers’ will likely be what will be headed your way without a personal injury lawyer.

Why personal injury law is when someone is typically hurt by the act or omission of another. You need to look at legal remedies (sometimes referred to as damages) for all losses coming from an accident or other incident. The purpose of the personal injury system is to allow the injured person or their family to be compensated financially or “made whole” after he or she has suffered harm due to someone else’s carelessness or intentional conduct without actually being able to take a time machine and turn back the clock the moment before the injury or loss was sustained.

There are a wide variety of different situations where personal injury law works and they include  accidents, situations where someone acts in a negligent manner, and that carelessness causes harm to another person, like a car collision, slip and fall incidents, and medical malpractice, wrongful death, nursing home neglect, etc., intentional acts, where someone intentional behavior causes harm to another person, like assault and battery, etc., defective products, where someone can be found legally responsible for injuries without any negligent or intentional misconduct, like product liability claims arising from a defective products, defamation, when one person’s offensive statement causes harm to another person’s reputation and there are monetary damages.

Why become personal injury lawyer?

Why become personal injury lawyer is sometimes a personal question that has different answers from one to another personal injury lawyer.

Too often the” ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer” is a brunt of jokes, vilification and caricature our popular culture. While sometimes true as with all professions having ‘bad apples’, a personal injury lawyer is often painted in a bad light as being ruthless and aggressive without any ethics.

So why become a personal injury lawyer? There are many reasons.

I have seen the wrongs that remain unresolved when left unattended. From the simple piece of copper wire left in a salad could lead to broken teeth…who is going to pay for all those dental bills, lost time from work, pain and suffering, etc. to a member of the family who had been involved in a bad car accident and loses a limb. Who is going to be help accountable. It is a matter of justice, accountability and being made whole in recovering damages.

Often, the stereotype is wrong. While a personal injury lawyer can be unscrupulous and out for the all important dollar, the same can be said about some doctors, accountants, architects, or anyone in any of the professional services for that matter. But most of us enter this profession of the law because we’re motivated by a number of things other than money. Personal injury lawyers are usually passionate about justice. We see people who have suffered injuries through no fault of their own, and we want to help them obtain resolution.  Personal injury attorneys are curious people who like meeting new people. That is why personal injury attorneys like to represent the individual rather than large entities. The satisfaction of seeing a client’s case through victory in court or a satisfactory settlement is paramount. Personal injury lawyer should communicate. It’s about argument, too – for example, your client’s claim will be opposed by insurers. Working in personal injury law means that you’re always ready as a communicator and an advocate. These are transferable skills that you can apply across the board in your life. Personal injury law is about a passion for justice, for helping people, for doing the right thing.
