Why Should I Hire A Lawyer?

First, you must realize what you’re up against when you’ve been injured and you intend to file a claim. Many insurance companies are multi-billion dollar corporations that have teams of adjusters, investigators and attorneys that are very skilled at minimizing the amount of your claim by taking possession of the crucial evidence, obtaining conflicting witness statements on liability and speaking with you about your injuries before you have an opportunity to fully assess them. By hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer you gain an advocate who knows your rights, will accurately assess the value of your claim, and will fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Determining the exact value of a personal injury case can be very difficult because different factors can carry various amounts of weight. Some of the criteria used in evaluating the value of a personal injury case may include: the facts of the incident, injuries sustained, amount of medical bills, medical opinions regarding the permanency of injuries, future care required, previous medical history, the amount of insurance available, and any aggravating factors such as drunk driving.

How Much Will It Cost To Hire A Lawyer?

Our law firm works solely on a contingency fee basis. This means that our legal fee is only a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. Therefore, our clients pay nothing up front, and if we do not recover anything for them, they owe us nothing.

How Long Will It Take To Resolve My Case?

Since each case is different, there is no way to accurately predict how long it will take to resolve a case. However, most cases that are resolved pre-suit take anywhere from 9 months to a year, while other instances where a lawsuit is filed typically take 2 to 4 years to resolve.

Can I Get My Medical Bills Paid If I Was Partially At Fault In The Accident?

In dealing with tort claims, the state of Florida proscribes to a pure comparative negligence system. This means an individual is entitled to recover the number of damages attributed to the negligence of others, even if they are deemed to be partially liable for the incident.

We Are Thankful for Erjavec Law!

“My husband and I were injured in a car accident last year in Florida. We were on vacation and wound up in the hospital instead of on the beach! We decided to have Erjavec Law represent us. They were knowledgeable and took care of the things that we would not have been able to handle on our own. We are grateful that we used them, that we got to deal with the actual attorney instead of an assistant, and that we got a great settlement. We would recommend them to anyone!”
