How Does A Personal Injury Help?
Every personal injury case is different. Some cases have better liability than others. Some cases have better damages than others. To win your personal injury case, your lawyer needs to know where you stand in regard to both liability and damages and should have a plan to prove those issues should your case go to trial.
Your lawyer will help you figure out the particular legal issues relevant to proving your case and discuss them with you. Your lawyer will do a lot more than just get as much money as he can from the responsible party. Below is a list of things that your lawyer will do for you and for your case:
- Obtain a list of medical providers and make sure that you are not overcharged for treatment
- Obtain liens from medical or disability insurers
- Negotiate medical bills or liens
- Determine whether you should settle your case
- Determine whether a quick settlement is in your best interests considering Florida’s collateral source statute
- Determine whether there is a likelihood of collecting assets beyond the insurance policies
- Provide insight based on experience as to the settlement value of your case
