Essential Tips to Prepare for a Personal Injury Lawsuit

After a wrongful injury, securing trusted counsel is imperative to protecting your rights and economic security. Our board-certified trial attorneys at Edwards & Ragatz, P.A. are highly skilled negotiators, empowering us to restore your health and peace of mind after an unexpected accident. 

When preparing to file a personal injury claim, some critical elements to consider include: 

  1. Hire the right attorney. When preparing for a personal injury case, it’s imperative to hire an attorney with an in-depth understanding of personal injury law and extensive experience handling similar cases. A skilled trial lawyer can ensure your claim is taken seriously by pursuing fair compensation and taking your case to trial if needed. With over 150+ years of combined experience, insurance companies and large corporations are familiar with our proven track record of record-breaking results, allowing us to represent your best interests effectively while protecting your rights. 
  2. Don’t speak to insurance companies without an attorney present. The worst thing you can do in a personal injury lawsuit is give recorded statements or disclose other information to insurance companies without your attorney present. Most insurers are trained to ask questions that force you to provide answers that are unfavorable to your case, allowing opposing parties to reduce the amount of compensation you're rightfully entitled to or even throw out your claim entirely. To avoid being backed into a corner or taken advantage of, it's crucial to let opposing parties know that all communications must go directly through your lawyer. 
  3. Seek sound counsel as soon as possible to ensure compliance with the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the filing deadline or amount of time allowed for wrongfully injured parties to file a personal injury claim. In Florida, the statute of limitations can vary based on which type of claim you have. For example, you may not have as much time for a medical malpractice case or an accident with a municipality. To successfully recover compensation, it’s essential to seek sound counsel from a qualified attorney right away, as they can guide your steps wisely, help you file your claim within appropriate filing deadlines, and ensure compliance with all legal processes. 

What Is the Pure Comparative Negligence Rule?

In Florida, a wrongfully injured party can recover compensation even if they are responsible for some fault in the accident. Recent changes in Florida law have made it more difficult to recover when the injured party is partially liable for the accident. In all types of personal injury claims, victims who are found to be more than 50% at fault cannot recover any type of compensation. This does not apply in medical malpractice claims.

Our personal injury attorneys can work tirelessly to prevent insurance companies and other involved parties from imposing undeserved blame on your shoulders while advocating for the fair compensation you deserve after a wrongful injury. 

Don’t wait to hold liable parties accountable for negligence. Call (904) 295-1050 to schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
