What’s Your Car Accident Worth?

Every car accident is unique. Different drivers, different insurance, different injuries. Take our quick, easy, and 100% confidential quiz and find out how much your car accident could be worth.

 

Personal Injury Case Timeline

Each case is different, but most personal injury cases will follow the same basic four-step process. We work with you every step of the way and keep you up-to-date on the status of your case.

Home- PIA 11
Free Case Evaluation

We start with a free case evaluation. During this meeting we will discuss your accident, injuries, and physical recovery timeline. These facts are important to determine the scope and viability of your case. 

Home- PIA 12
Initial Investigation

Before filing suit, we need to build your case by collecting evidence such as witness statements, camera footage, medical bills, and other damages. We also identify all of the potentially liable parties and determine their insurance coverages to ensure we seek the maximum compensation available

Home- PIA 13
Settlement Negotiations

Based on the evidence and the extent of your specific injuries, we will begin the negotiation process by sending an initial demand letter to the relevant parties. Depending on how responsive the other parties are and the complexity of the case, this process can take up to several months.

Home- PIA 14
Litigation

If we cannot reach an appropriate settlement out of court, we will prepare to argue your case in court. Will we gather any necessary documents needed to prove your case. We will also continue to negotiate a settlement offer to avoid needlessly prolonging the process

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is my accident worth?

It depends.

Despite what you see on billboards or Facebook ads, the total amount recoverable from your accident will be determined by the unique facts of the case: i.e. how seriously you were injured. So, we think the better question is, “What types of damages can I recover?”

Accident victims can recover economic (“special”) damages and non-economic (“general”) damages. Economic damages are what you paid or lost due to your injuries, such as medical bills, lost wages, or property damage.

Non-economic damages include future harms or injuries that impact your quality of life. For example, if you can no longer work, you lose spousal companionship or familial love, or you have general pain and suffering.

Can I afford to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Yes!

Money should never stand in the way of an injury victim getting the legal representation they deserve. We always offer free, no-obligation consultations so you can speak to us about your case without fear of being charged. We also work on a 100% contingency fee basis. In other words, you pay nothing up front and you will never pay anything out of pocket. In fact, unless we successfully resolve your case, there will be no fees of any kind.

Should I always see a doctor after a car accident?

Yes.

First, according to Florida’s personal injury protection (PIP) law (F.S. 627.736), if you do not seek medical treatment within 14 days of your accident, your insurance may not cover your damages. Second, some serious medical conditions can take hours or days to fully manifest. You could have a traumatic brain injury or even internal bleeding that self-diagnosis will miss.

Additionally, if you plan on filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver in the accident, medical records detailing your injuries, diagnosis, treatment regimen, and medical costs will act as some of the most important forms of evidence in your injury case. All of this will have a significant impact on your ability to collect compensation.

LEARN MORE

Can I still file a personal injury lawsuit?

Maybe.

The amount of time that you have to file a personal injury lawsuit—known as the “statute of limitations”—can vary depending on the type of accident. If you have been injured in a car or truck accident, bicycle accident, or slip and fall, the statute of limitations is four years from the date of the accident. Claims for medical malpractice, doctor error, or professional malpractice, on the other hand, generally have a two-year statute of limitations. Additional considerations may be in play in the case of fraud, minors, or death.

Failing to file your lawsuit prior to the end of the statute of limitations could result in your injury claim being rejected by a judge, regardless of the proof you have.

How do I pick the right personal injury lawyer for me?

In the aftermath of a serious injury, choosing a personal injury lawyer is one of the most important and consequential decisions you will make. You should want to work with someone who will treat you with respect, put your interests first, and whom you know, like, and trust.

And yet, many people put more effort into choose a new TV than into hiring a lawyer to help them recover after an accident. When picking a lawyer to represent you, avoid committing these cardinal sins:

  1. Getting misled by billboards and ads that promise huge amounts of compensation. The unique facts of your case determine the compensation.
  2. Hiring the first law firm to respond to your inquiry. Speed doesn’t equal quality.
  3. Blindly hiring a lawyer based on the recommendation of a friend or family member. Trust, but verify.
  4. Hiring a lawyer that doesn’t exclusively practice in personal injury law. A barber shouldn’t do your taxes.
