What Will a Kissimmee Personal Injury Attorneys Do for You?
As part of a personal injury lawsuit, your attorney may:
Gather Evidence: The first step in a personal injury lawsuit is to
determine if the injured victim has a viable claim for damages. Your
personal injury attorney will review the facts of your case to determine
who may be liable for your injuries. Do determine this, they may
question witnesses and review any police or accident reports that were
prepared. Because witnesses’ memories fade and evidence may become lost
or destroyed over time, it is essential that you retain a personal
injury attorney immediately after an accident so that all relevant
evidence can be preserved.
Work with Medical Experts: Our personal injury attorneys work with
medical experts to evaluate the extent of our client’s injuries. The
medical expert may also determine if future medical treatments and
rehabilitation services will be needed to help you recover. In a
personal injury lawsuit, a medical expert may also be used as an expert
witness to explain to a judge and jury how the accident, medical
malpractice, or defective product caused your injuries. The attorneys in
our Kissimmee office regularly work with top doctors and medical
professionals in Florida to help us win cases for our clients.
Negotiate a Settlement: Far too often, insurance companies attempt
to offer personal injury victims quick, but often inadequate,
out-of-court settlements. If a settlement offer is received, our
attorneys will evaluate it with you to make sure that it takes into
account all of the economic and non-economic damages you have suffered.
Our Kissimmee attorneys will negotiate with the insurance company on
your behalf to ensure that you receive full compensation. If settlement
negotiations do not result in an adequate settlement offer, your
attorney will prepare the case for trial.
Do I Have a Case?
If your injuries were caused by the negligence, recklessness, or
intentional act of another, you may have a legitimate personal injury
claim. A person acts negligently if he or she fails to behave in a way
that a reasonably prudent person would have in a similar situation.
addition, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are held to a
higher standard of care, which requires them to provide medical services
that meet or exceed the accepted standards of the medical profession. If
this standard is not met, malpractice may have occurred and you may be
eligible for compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

injury was the result of another’s negligence and whether you have a
claim that is eligible for compensation.
