Step 1: Free - No Obligation Consultation Call Now
Following your accident, and after seeking medical attention, it is important to evaluate the circumstances of your case including:
- Your injuries
- Medical Costs
- Legal Options
- Negligence of another party involved
Step 2: Investigation
We investigate your personal injury claim to provide the best outcome and adequate compensation. Our investigation will include:
- Police report
- Photographs of scene and injuries sustained
- Witness testimony
- Damage to your vehicle
- Hiring of Accident Investigator and other Experts
- Employment and Lost wages
- Medical Records and Bills
Step 3: Demand & Negotiations
A demand letter will be drafted in an attempt to amicably resolve your claim. The demand summarizes the facts of your case, your injuries, liability of the at-fault party, your lost wages, your medical bills, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
Prior to making the demand, we will meet with you to discuss our strategy and the amount we will be seeking on your behalf. We will negotiate a settlement with the insurance company and any monetary offer made will be presented to you. Whether you chose to accept or decline will be your decision.
Step 4: Filing a personal injury lawsuit
If a settlement is not reached, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf. A pre-litigation questionnaire will be drafted to obtain all information necessary to prepare your case for filing. We will compile all of your medical records, lost wages, expert reports, witness statements, and all other information that is relevant to your case. Once filed, the person and/or business responsible for your injuries will be served with the complaint and summons. Generally, the opposing party will have twenty (20) days to respond to the law suit.
Step 5: Discovery
Discovery will be conducted to further investigate the facts of your case including but not limited to, requesting documents from the at-fault party, completing interrogatories (questions), and obtaining records or other relevant items.
Step 6: Mediation
Mediation is the attempt to settle a legal dispute through active participation of a third party (mediator) who works to find points of agreement and make those in conflict agree on a fair result. Attending mediation proves to be beneficial as many times it leads to a settlement that is favorable and avoids the uncertainty of trial.
Step 7: Trial
In this process, a decision-maker, often a jury will evaluate the facts, determine fault and possibly award damages.
Step 8: Fees
Florida statute outlines a contingency fee for personal injury cases - whether your case settles pre-suit or during litigation. Additionally, your medical bills will be paid back for services rendered and costs incurred along the way. The remainder of your compensation will be directly given to you.
