What Insurance Companies Do:

Oftentimes, our personal injury attorneys can negotiate a fair settlement for you without litigation. Only when necessary, we file a lawsuit to resolve your injury claim fairly.
As you probably know, motorists in the state of Florida are required to carry vehicle insurance. Therefore, if you are injured do to someone else’s negligence, that person’s insurance company will be notified, and your personal injury claim process beings.
However, if you embark on this task without hiring an attorney, you could be making a terrible mistake. After all, insurance companies are in the business to make money. Their goal is to charge as high of a premium as they can to their clients every month, and then when it is the insurance companies’ time to pay, they want to pay out as little as possible.

Why is the right doctor so important?
You do not take your car to a quick lube place when you are experiencing air conditioning problems. You go to an expert A/C repair shop. It may sound simplistic but it is the same principle with your body. You may have a wonderful internist or family doctor. However, if your back has been hurt in an accident or fall, you really do need an expert in the field.
Whether it’s your neck, back, tailbone or legs, this type of doctor will run a battery of tests. He or she will look for soft tissue as well as bone injuries. There will be detailed reports that confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes you will need occupational or physical therapy. You will be limited in the weight you can lift or your activity level will be impaired.
This doctor knows what you can expect in one year, five years and down the road. Will your body ever heal to the way it was prior to the accident? This has to be taken into consideration. Just because an insurance company covers your present medical bills, pain and suffering – who will pay for it in the long haul? This has to be figured into your total compensation. How will this injury affect your family life now and in the future?

If you have been looking at websites for Personal Injury Attorneys in Pinellas County, then you will notice that each one of us will tell you that your consultation is free. This is standard in the industry so anyone who says they are giving you a special deal is misleading you.
You will also note that all (or almost all) personal injury lawyers in the Pinellas area proclaim something like “no fee unless win” or “we only get paid, if you do,” but this is an industry standard, as well. If you want to know what really separates one personal injury attorney from another, it is the reputation the attorneys have with their clients.
Our Reputation With Our Clients:
One of our best forms of marketing and advertising is word-of-mouth. Our clients are so happy with the results of their cases that they tell their friends and other family members about us. These kinds of personal endorsements are the best kind to have. We are known for working hard to get the largest settlements and we are in constant contact with our clients. Many cases are settled outside the courtroom because the insurance companies know about our record of success. When we settle outside of court, you get your money faster and the insurance companies save money on court costs. It’s a win-win scenario.
Remember, even if you have already hired another attorney, or even if you are happy with the settlement offer an insurance adjuster is providing you, there is no harm in getting a second opinion.
