Common Personal Injury Questions

Knowledgeable Personal Injury Lawyers in Broward County

When you are seriously hurt, the last thing you want to think about are the legalities involved with your case. However, speaking with a Broward County personal injury attorney can mean the difference between being stuck with trying to pay your medical bills, and holding the negligent party liable for damages. The following are some common questions regarding personal injury cases; call Kaplan Law Group, P.A. for further assistance.

How do I know if I have a good case?
The presence of three elements can make for a strong injury case. First, is there another party which is clearly at fault for your injuries? Second, did you suffer observable physical, financial, or emotional harm? Lastly, does whichever entity which harmed you have the money or assets to cover your losses?

What is my injury claim worth?
This question is quite common but difficult to answer since every case is unique. Many factors are involved; for instance, in most auto accidents, medical negligence, or slip and fall cases, your age, severity of your injuries, your earning potential, the degree of fault, and even geographic location are very important elements in determining your damages.

What information should I bring to my lawyer’s attention?
Basically, the more information you can offer your attorney, the stronger your case can be. Things such as photographs, names of witnesses, accident reports, or medical records should be handed over to your lawyer so they can be integrated into your claim. Other data such as how much work you have missed, activities you no longer can perform, and physical and psychological conditions are very relevant to determining what your case is worth.

What should I not do?
Do not discuss your case with anyone other than your attorney as anything you say can be used against your claim, even things said to your family and friends. While you should obviously seek medical attention, do not speak to your doctor about the value of your case or what you may be entitled to.

What if my case goes to trial?
While most injury cases are settled out of court, if your case does make it to this stage for some reason, it could take up to a year to adequately prepare the case for trial.
