Frequently Asked Questions

When do I have a Personal Injury case?

It isn’t always obvious to know whether or not you have a Personal Injury claim. A key thing to remember is that just because you got hurt does not necessarily mean you have a claim. What this means is that you need to be hurt because someone else did something they shouldn’t have done.

When should I contact a Personal Injury attorney?

Contacting a Personal Injury attorney is vital if you have suffered injuries as the victim of an accident. While it is possible to file a Personal Injury lawsuit without an attorney, the insurance companies will only wish to pay you a fraction of what you deserve. A good Personal Injury attorney will have deep knowledge of our legal system and expert assistance and resources to be able to fight for the maximum compensation.

What should I look for in a Personal Injury attorney?

According to Attorney Michael Vater, the Director of our Personal Injury Department, customer service is one of the most important factors a prospective client should look for when it comes to hiring legal representation. Any attorney worth his or her salt will have education, experience and practice. But undivided attention and commitment to their clients is what distinguishes a good attorney from a great attorney. The Ticktin Law Group firmly believes that clients the right to know what is going on with their case and the ability to speak to their attorney. In fact, Communication is one of the ‘Three C’s” that guides our legal practice.

If I am hurt, do I have a Personal Injury claim?

Is another person responsible for what happened? Just because you were injured does not necessarily mean you have a Personal Injury claim. Someone else has to be at fault for your injuries. Any successful Personal Injury claim is going to contain two crucial parts: liability and damages. Liability simply means “can you prove the other party is at fault,” and damages are all of the ways your life has been impacted because of the accident.

How much will my Personal Injury claim be worth?

There’s no way surefire to know how much your Personal Injury claim is worth at the early stages of the Personal Injury process. There are a number of variables that ultimately determine the value of a case including the nature of the accident, the severity of injuries sustained, and permanent damages, to name a few. In the very beginning of a case, many of these variables are still unknown and because of that, the final value is unclear.

Will a larger Personal Injury firm be able to get me a larger settlement?

Studies show that hiring an attorney can maximize your settlement. However, there is no empirical evidence linking a law firm’s size to the size of the settlement they secure. What is most important is finding an advocate who is invested in you and your case. A quality lawyer fights for you, seeks full compensation for your injuries, and has the resources and ability to give your case its best chance of success These qualities can be attained by lawyers at firms of any size. So, in our opinion, it is not the size of the law firm, but the character of the people who comprise it.

How long do I have to file a Personal Injury lawsuit?

Personal Injury lawsuit deadlines vary by state. Here in Florida, the Statute of Limitations for an injury is four years from the date of the accident. In very limited circumstances, the statute of limitations may be extended beyond four years. This can occur when a plaintiff did not reasonably discover their injuries until a date after the accident. In this case, the lawsuit window would be extended using the date of reasonable discovery.

How much does it cost to hire a Personal Injury attorney?

Hiring an experienced Personal Injury attorney from The Ticktin Law Group costs you nothing up front. We only get paid if, and when, we recover money for your injuries.
