When do I need to hire a Personal Injury Attorney in South Florida?

November 7, 2018

You've suffered an injury, but how do you know if you should hire a Personal Injury lawyer?

Contacting a Personal Injury attorney is critical if you have suffered injuries as the victim of an accident. But, just because you got hurt, doesn’t necessarily mean you have a Personal Injury claim. You need to be injured because someone else did something that they shouldn’t have done.

You Have Nothing to Lose By Contacting an Attorney

The first reason to reach out to an attorney is because you have nothing to lose. Seriously. Sure, it is possible to “go it alone” and seek out compensation for your injuries without the assistance of a lawyer. However, consulting an experienced Personal Injury attorney is always recommended if you think you have a case. And -- here’s the best part -- speaking with an attorney will cost you nothing.

The Ticktin Law Group, among other reputable firms, offers any and all prospective clients free preliminary consultations. This is our way for you to speak directly with an attorney in private to go over the facts of your claim. After speaking with you, the attorney will then be able to determine if you have a Personal Injury case and if it makes sense for you to obtain legal representation. If so, the attorney can help you with the steps for how to proceed. The total cost to you: $0.

But that’s not all. It gets even better. All Personal Injury cases that are handled by The Ticktin Law Group are on a contingency basis. That means you pay nothing — not even out-of-pocket expenses — unless, and until, we recover money for your injuries.

Attorneys Help Get the Most of Your Claim

A quality Personal Injury attorney will have the education, experience, and practice to get the most out of your claim. They should also be someone you can trust and feel comfortable with, as well as provide you with unrivaled customer service.

First off, your case may require a lawyer simply because of the complicated nature of the law. Properly filing a Personal Injury lawsuit in South Florida requires a deep knowledge of our legal system and expert assistance. Lawyers spend a lot of time (and money) earning their degrees and take years refining their skills.

An attorney will also be able to help calculate what your claim is worth to fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. The amount of compensation you are entitled to is the combination of a few key things, namely

  • The type of injuries you sustained
  • The severity of the injuries
  • The amount of your medical bills
  • The time it takes for you to recover
  • Other losses

Figuring out what your claim should be requires the assistance of an experienced lawyer. Insurance companies will only wish to pay you a fraction of what you deserve. Only through the hiring of a lawyer will you be able to obtain the maximum compensation. Ultimately, the amount of money you will end up paying your lawyer will be worth the expense as they pursue all forms of compensation for your injuries.
