Why Should I Speak With an Attorney?
As an injury victim, you have a lot to contend with: physical pain, emotional stress, medical bills, lost income, and more. In a perfect world, the insurance company for the at-fault party would pay you fully for your hardship.
Unfortunately, because insurance companies aim to maximize profits, chances are they will instead do all they can to avoid paying you what your claim is really worth. That might include stalling, offering an inadequate settlement, or denying your claim outright.
Morgan & Morgan provides you the best chance of recovering the compensation you deserve. Our attorneys can:
- Investigate the cause of the injury and who was responsible
- Gather witness statements, police reports, medical records, and other key evidence
- Demonstrate the severity of your injury, along with its immediate and long-term effects
- Negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company
- Prepare your case for trial if the insurance company is unwilling to negotiate fairly
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Every personal injury case is unique, so it’s difficult to estimate how much your claim is worth before reviewing the facts. No matter what, it’s important that you never settle for less than your case is worth. Our highly-skilled attorneys may be able to help you recover various damages, such as:
- Medical expenses including doctor and hospital visits, surgery, medication, and rehabilitation
- Lost wages if your injury prevents you from going to work
- Lost earning capacity if it forces you to pursue a different career path
- Pain and suffering to compensate you for the emotional burden of your injury
- Punitive damages in the event the negligent party was particularly reckless
What Is the Lawsuit Process?
Typically, personal injury cases unfold as follows:
- Your attorney will a file a complaint with the court alleging wrongdoing by the defendant and a proposed corrective action (e.g. paying damages for lost wages)
- Lawyers on each side will exchange information in discovery
- The two sides may agree to a settlement before trial
- If a settlement is not reached, your attorney will present your case in front of a judge
- If you win, the defendant will be ordered to pay you a specific sum of money
