Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney? Caring for Your Legal Needs, One Case at a Time

Why Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

You've been seriously hurt in an accident and need help. You think that insurance will fully take care of the matter, but soon discover that it is far more complicated and difficult than you expected. Unfortunately, this is an all too familiar situation for many personal injury victims. Those who have suffered severe spinal cord, brain, burn and other injuries find that hospital costs and the need for continued medical treatment creates a serious financial problem. This is often compounded by the inability to earn a living and the ongoing medical treatment or rehabilitation. The cause of your accident and the need for assistance is clear to you and your family. Getting an insurance company or responsible third party to see the accident as you do can be difficult. Obtaining fair and adequate compensation can be a difficult matter, and it is advised that you have skilled legal assistance throughout the process.

To win a personal injury case, we do detailed research and investigation along with documenting the information we find. We know the strategies used by insurance adjusters and their attorneys in denying or devaluing claims. In negotiations, our attorneys have in-depth knowledge in the process of recovering compensation and in how to press for a fair settlement to your case. Injured victims who are trying to resolve a claim without legal representation could make a serious error. Never allow access to your medical records without first retaining a lawyer.

An adjuster is an employee of the insurance company. Their loyalty is to the business that pays them. Despite appearing friendly or helpful, in most cases they are not working with your best interests in mind. It is not uncommon for an adjuster to get an injured person to make statements that impact the final settlement.

For over 2 decades we have been successfully assisting injury victims. The focus of our firm is solely on personal injury cases. This allows us to be knowledgeable on current case law, and to employ proven methods to obtain maximum compensation for our clients. We are proud to be members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership is only granted to lawyers who have settled cases in which a client has received $1,000,000.00 or more. When you retain an experienced Tallahassee personal injury lawyer from our firm, you will have the services of someone who has an established record of accomplishment.

We represent people injured in auto, motorcycle, truck, boating, pedestrian and many other types of accidents. Our attorneys also assist those harmed in product liability or premises liability incidents as well as those hurt through nursing home negligence and construction accidents. We are also fully versed in social security disability cases.

Our initial advice is to consult with a committed personal injury lawyer. You don't have to fight with an insurance company. It is extremely important that you do not make statements to or sign any documents presented by an insurance adjuster. Consult with your attorney first. A routine procedure for insurance companies is to submit a quick settlement offer to accident victims who do not have legal representation. In most cases, this first settlement is significantly lower than the full amount of damages that could be awarded in your case. The settlement offer may not cover your current bills, let alone future care and treatment or compensation for your pain and suffering.

We are sensitive to what injury victims go through. Our lead attorney is a former police officer who was seriously injured through the negligence of another. Our lawyers also understand the financial difficulties that you may be experiencing. To help, we operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that we are only paid when we have achieved a financial recovery in your case.
