How a Lake County Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

Accidents caused by negligence occur every day and can include auto accidents, slip and falls, or use of a defective product. When another party’s negligence causes an injury, victims can seek full and fair compensation for the costs associated with their injuries.

Many individuals choose to handle their own cases, particularly when insurance claims are involved. But this choice may limit the ability to receive fair compensation for their losses.  Retaining a skilled personal injury attorney can yield different results.

In Florida, a free initial consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney gives victims of Lake County personal injuries the opportunity to learn all available options before pursuing their claims.

Even insurance claims can benefit from legal support

A report by the Insurance Research Council —which is supported by leading property and casualty insurance companies and associations—indicates that almost one-third of the 2007 no-fault auto insurance claims in Florida appeared to be inflated. Unfortunately, this type of research can skew insurance company attitudes as they review valid claims.

Individuals who file their own claims are encouraged to consult with experienced attorneys, who can help in many ways that include the following:

?         Review of settlement offers from the insurance company: A quick settlement offer is not necessarily a fair one. An experienced attorney can help ensure the offer accounts for all injury-related expenses.

?         Intervention: A skilled attorney can advocate on behalf of the victim when a claim is denied—often with very different results.

?         Legal action: Even the denial of an insurance claim does not discount the validity of that claim.  Other legal avenues can help victims recover the compensation they deserve.

Any legal action requires a skilled personal injury attorney

It takes experience to level the playing field when going against defense attorneys representing liable parties. While it may be tempting for accident victims to try handling their own negotiations in out-of-court settlements, the compensation may not sufficiently make up for all losses.

Litigation before a judge or jury requires detailed preparation to develop effective, evidence-backed cases. Experienced attorneys have access to investigative specialists and expert witnesses—and they know how to convince juries of the validity of their clients’ cases.
