  1. You Are Assigned a Lawyer and Legal Team

You typically will be assigned with an attorney and legal team within a week after we have reviewed your claim. We can match you up with an experienced personal injury lawyer who successfully handled cases similar to yours. Your attorney and support staff will begin working on your case and can be by your side during the entire legal process. The team will communicate with you regularly and answer any questions or concerns you might have.  

  1. We Investigate and Build Your Case

Your lawyer will contact the other side in your claim and inform them that Morgan & Morgan represents you. The legal team and attorney will work on gathering the necessary documents and evidence to prove your personal injury claim, such as:

  • Photographs
  • Witness statements
  • Police reports
  • Physician’s statements
  • CCTV or video footage

We can collect evidence, engage professional investigators, and negotiate with insurers on your behalf so that you can focus on your recovery. We can take your case to trial if negotiations for a fair out-of-court settlement fail.

While we will handle all the legal aspects of your claim, there are some things you can do to help your attorney obtain the best possible results.

Be Honest and Open

It is crucial for the success of your case that you communicate openly and honestly with your attorney. They likely need a great deal of information from you, and some of that information may be personal. However, all communications with your attorney are confidential.

Openly discussing your accident and injuries is critical to provide your attorney with the details they need to represent you effectively. Keeping essential information from your legal team could damage your case.

Follow Your Medical Treatment Plan

Missing doctor’s appointments and medical treatments can be a mistake. If you fail to follow your treatment plan, the other side might argue that you exaggerated your injuries. Following doctor’s orders and attending all medical appointments can help your attorney recover maximum compensation.

Provide Requested Documents and Return Calls

Our personal injury attorneys are trying to resolve claims as quickly as possible, so you can pay your bills and get your life back on track. As the person bringing the lawsuit, you will be responsible for completing and signing specific forms and documents. Keep all relevant paperwork and evidence of your damages in a folder so you can provide the documents to your attorney when required.

Moreover, if your lawyer calls you, do not ignore them and call them back as soon as possible. They likely need essential information to move forward with your claim. If you are organized and conscientious, you can help resolve your claim quickly and smoothly.

Not all law firms are the same. At Morgan & Morgan, our clients are like family. We have been fighting for the injured for over three decades and want our clients to have the best shot at getting what they deserve.

We never accept a last-best offer from an insurer if your case is worth more. Morgan & Morgan knows that you need fair compensation to move forward. If an insurer or at-fault party refuses to agree to the settlement you deserve, we will see them in court.

Unlike some law firms, we don’t charge you a dime when we take your case. There are no hidden fees or legal expenses for you to pay upfront. You only pay us if and when we win.
