Do I Have a Case?
To determine if you have a case, you must first consult with an attorney. The circumstances of every case are different and an experienced attorney will be able to inform you if you have a viable claim.
Usually though, most cases involve one party being the victim of another party’s negligence. This can happen in a variety of ways, such as in a car accident when one driver runs a stop sign and collides with another vehicle legally crossing the intersection, or when a doctors’ care falls below the standards of the medical community and their patient suffers the consequences.
Not all cases are as clear cut, though, and you’ll want an experienced attorney in the specific area of practice your case falls under handling your claim. At Morgan & Morgan, our attorneys are specialists in their practice areas so you know you’re getting a legal advocate with experience handling cases similar to yours.
And when your ability to cover medical expenses and pay the bills are affected because your injury keeps you out of work or permanently affects your earning capability, you’ll want the most experienced advocate possible working on your behalf.
Can I Afford a Morgan & Morgan Personal Injury Attorney?
Let’s be honest, some attorneys can be costly and most people don’t have that kind of money readily available.
This makes it easier for the powerful to pray on regular people, which is exactly what we fight to prevent. As the “For the People” law firm, we want to provide quality legal representation to anyone who needs it, not just those who can afford it. After all, justice shouldn’t only be available to those with a large enough bank account.
That’s why our attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning you don’t pay anything unless we win your case. Our attorneys only receive a reasonable fee — a percentage of your recovery — if they win your case. Otherwise, you don’t pay a cent.
Additionally, by working on a contingency-fee basis, our attorneys are just as interested in the outcome of your case as you are. This means our attorneys will fight hard to get you the full value of your claim, even if that means going to trial. Some attorneys just want to settle their clients’ cases and move on to the next one, but our attorneys are willing to go to trial if that’s what it takes get you the best result.

In an ideal world, insurance companies would always pay out what you’re entitled to, doctors would always provide proper medical care, employers would always pay the correct wage, and negligent parties would always admit fault. Unfortunately, that’s not the world we live in, and more often than not you’ll need to fight to get the compensation you deserve.
You don’t have an unlimited amount of time if you would like to pursue legal action, though. There is a statute of limitations on most personal injury cases in Florida and if you wait too long, you could lose your right to file a lawsuit.
