An experienced car accident attorney in Jacksonville FL will understand the tactics often used by insurance companies to affect your claim and advise on you how to handle an adjuster. When you hire an attorney, you gain a legal ally who is prepared to fight zealously for you. There are four elements of negligence your auto accident attorney will need to prove:
- You suffered damages as a result of your injury
- The injury you suffered was a direct result of this breach of duty
- The at-fault party owed you a duty to ensure your safety
- The at-fault party breached this duty
One of the main reasons to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer is you probably do not have in-depth knowledge of relevant laws.This includes analyzing your injuries, putting a value on your pain and suffering, understanding how the insurance companies work, negotiating your accident settlement , reviewing similar injury cases etc. The insurance companies know that an unrepresented person is unfamiliar with the claims process and cannot harm them as much. In nearly all cases, the benefit of settling with you is higher than the cost of going to a trial. Our law firm in Jacksonville FL handles these cases on a contingent fee, which means you do not have to pay anything unless and until the case settles.
