Personal injury law is quite possibly one of the most misunderstood areas of the field. Some common myths include:
Ambulance chasing: This image of a personal injury attorney is not accurate. Most, if not all, state bar associations have specific and strict rules regarding when and how an attorney may contact an unrepresented injured party. Most firms obtain clients through referrals and advertising.
Settlement before medicals: There is a misconception that a settlement will occur before all necessary medical care is administered. An injured party must reach maximum medical improvement before a settlement can be reached on a case. This is because part of the final settlement is based on medical expenses for past and future treatment.
Attorneys are too pricey: While many attorneys bill by the hour, personal injury lawyers typically work on a contingency fee. This means the attorney does not get paid fees or reimbursed costs until and if the case is settled in negotiations or won in a courtroom. As a result, there are no upfront, out-of-pocket expenses when hiring a personal injury lawyer.
A long battle is guaranteed: Most lawsuits are settled out of court before ever seeing the inside of a courtroom and going before a judge and/or jury. Because every case is different, sometimes litigating the case is the only way a client will obtain the justice he or she deserves.
If you have suffered a personal injury and are seeking monetary compensation for damages, it is important to know what types of damages are available in Florida. Compensatory damage awards can consist of both monetary and nonmonetary losses. Still, the purpose of these damages is to compensate victims for the costs incurred as a result of the injury, either financially or in terms of pain and suffering.Consult with an Experienced Attorney
