Lawyers work as a representative of a party that feels they have been wronged in one way or another, but there is more involved than just being a mediator for the injured party. They also work as knowledge counselors. If someone feels they may have a personal injury claim but aren’t sure if it will hold up in court, they can contact a lawyer to help them better understand whether or not they have a case. Personal injury cases range from automobile accidents, be them cars, trucks or motorcycles, to medical malpractice, be it wrong medications being prescribed or negligence during a surgery.
Not every claim is accepted in court. There can be a lack of evidence that doesn’t allow a person to have their voice heard. Evidence can be lost or forgotten and time passes. It is always best to get in contact with a lawyer as soon as one feels they may have been the victim of negligence or after a car accident. The sooner they make the call the more likely it is the lawyer or firm will be able to help them with their case. The amount of compensation that one receives depends on the severity of the situation but also on the amount of detail a lawyer has to help support one’s claim.

Under Florida state law, an injured party has up to four years to file a claim against another party. A lot of these cases are settled out of court, but if a lawyer is not able to settle the case with the company in question, it is pertinent that the injured party file there claim within this four year window. The compensation one receives can be for the bills they’ve accrued, pain and suffering, damaged property or time that had to be taken from their work. If one waits too long to call a lawyer, they may miss out on any wages they need to help with the stress that followed their injury.
