If you, your spouse or one of your children suffer an injury due to another person’s negligence it seems only natural that that individual would offer compensation for the injury or that the insurance company they have will offer a reasonable settlement. This is a perfect world but unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world and rarely would this happen. There are many people who will not own up to an accident they caused and insurance companies cannot make the money they make by paying out claims. Insurance companies have batteries of lawyers, if you are injured you too should hire a personal injury attorney in Miami to protect your rights and fight for compensation.
With in-depth knowledge of the law a personal injury attorney knows how to develop a case, deal with the insurance companies and if all else fails they know how to proceed to trial. It is possible to deal directly with insurance companies but they will do everything they can to take advantage of you, trying to mitigate the claim and get you to agree to the minimum settlement. At the same time they will insist you sign off on any future action.
The cost of a personal injury attorney:
You can expect a personal injury attorney in Miami to take a case on contingency. This simply means that you will not have to pay any legal fees until such time the attorney has succeeded in winning the action. If they should lose the case you do not have to pay fees. There will be costs involved that you have to pay but these are usually minimal and not an impediment to suing the negligent party.
The fees that a personal injury attorney charges vary, in most states the fee will be anywhere between a third and 40 percent of the award. Rarely would a highly skilled litigator reduce the fee, they know based on their own history and track record that they often recover considerably more for their clients than attorneys not as skilled.
Finding the best attorney for your situation:
Perhaps the best way to find a personal injury attorney in Miami is to ask a lawyer that you know and trust. What is important is that you are given the name or names of attorneys that will comprehend the issues involved in your case and have the necessary skills to handle it.
