You can pursue additional compensation from the negligent party or their insurer if you suffered a serious injury, by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Other ways our personal injury lawyers can help include:
Investigating the Accident
Our legal team can visit the scene of the accident to take photos and gather evidence.
Other types of evidence we will obtain can include:
- Police report/accident report
- Photos of your injuries, property damage, and the accident scene
- Video footage
- Pay stubs
- Employment records
- Phone records
- Medical bills
- Medical records
- Black box data
- Expert testimony
- Witness statements
We will use the evidence we have gathered to build a strong case against the negligent party to help you recover maximum compensation for your losses.
Work with Experts
At Friedland & Associates, we may consult with experts to help prove liability, determine how an accident occurred, and accurately value your case for damages. Some of the experts we may consult with include:
- Accident reconstructionists
- Life care planners
- Private investigators
- Forensic accountants
- Medical professionals
- Occupational therapists
- Physical therapists
Negotiating with the Insurance Company or Defense Attorney
Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. Whether you’re dealing with an insurance company or a defense attorney, we will work tirelessly to negotiate with the other party to ensure you recover a fair settlement for your accident-related damages. If the claims adjuster or defense attorney refuses to make a reasonable settlement offer, we will be prepared to file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court.
Filing a Lawsuit
We will prepare your case for trial and present it in front of a judge and jury. During this time, we will continue to negotiate with the other party. In most cases, insurance companies are more willing to negotiate once a lawsuit has been filed.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
At Friedland & Associates, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means, accident victims can obtain legal representation as soon as possible. Because we work on a contingency fee basis, accident victims don’t have to pay any upfront costs. If your case is successful, your attorney will subtract a small percentage of your settlement or award to cover the cost of legal fees. If you do not win your case, you owe us nothing.
What is My Case Worth?
The damages you’re entitled to can depend on many factors, such as the severity of your injuries, the extent of property damage, how much time you missed at work, and many other variables.
Our personal injury lawyers will carefully investigate your accident and determine which damages you’re entitled to. They may also consult with experts to accurately value your damages and ensure you pursue every penny of compensation you’re owed.
Damages you may be entitled to include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of quality of life
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Scarring and disfigurement
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Florida?
Like all states, Florida has a statute of limitations, which is a deadline for filing personal injury lawsuits. You will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you miss this important deadline, your case will be dismissed and you will be unable to recover any compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
What Are Common Types of Accident Injuries?
A person may walk away from an accident with only minor injuries, such as bruises and lacerations. In other cases, the accident victim will suffer injuries that will change their life forever.
Common types of accident injuries include:
- Soft tissue damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Nerve damage
