Why You Need An Attorney for Your Hollywood Personal Injury Case

At Friedland & Associates, our personal injury lawyers can help you recover compensation by filing a claim or a personal injury lawsuit, depending on the circumstances of the case, whether insurance coverage is involved, and what the policy limits are.

In cases involving motor vehicles, if you suffered a serious injury, you can rely on your personal injury protection coverage to cover a portion of the cost of your medical bills and lost wages. 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

And more.

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
  • Economists
  • Private investigators
  • Forensic accountants
  • Medical professionals
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists

And more.

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.

What to Do After You Are Injured

Following an injury, there are several things you should do to protect your health and your legal claim:

Seek Medical Attention

Visit your local emergency room or urgent care center as soon as possible. Because symptoms can appear several hours or days following an accident, it’s important to have a medical assessment by a healthcare professional.

Gather Evidence

Gather evidence, such as photos of the accident site, your injuries, property damage, witness contact information, and more. If you’re unable to gather evidence, due to your injuries, send a family member or friend. Your attorney will use this evidence to build a strong case against the negligent party.

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

Schedule a free legal consultation with a personal injury lawyer at Friedland & Associates as soon as possible. At a consultation, an attorney can discuss your legal rights and options and guide you through the claims process.

Avoid Speaking to the Insurance Company

Instead of speaking to the insurance company and providing a statement, direct the claims adjuster to your attorney. Your personal injury lawyer can handle all interactions with the insurance company to protect your rights and your claim.

How Much Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

After suffering a personal injury, many people wonder if they’re able to afford hiring legal representation. Because of this, many accident victims put off reaching out to personal injury lawyers, even if they have a strong case. Fortunately, the personal injury attorneys at Friedland & Associates work on a contingency fee basis. This means that unless your case is successful, you will pay nothing. There are no upfront costs and you will only owe a small percentage of your settlement or award to cover the cost of legal services. This payment arrangement makes it possible for you to receive quality legal representation as soon as possible.

What is the Statute of Limitations 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.
