What Can a Personal Injury Attorney Do For You?

What Can a Personal Injury Attorney Do For You?

Most people know that they need a personal injury lawyer when they have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another party, but they may not have a comprehensive understanding of the many and various ways that their lawyer works to protect them and to secure compensation for their injuries. Let’s consider some of the basics.

A Thorough Explanation of Your Rights and the Process

Personal injury laws are complex, and can at times be confusing. Laws vary from state to state, and the laws are constantly changing as well. There are issues of comparative negligence, statute of limitations, and more that must be considered and acted upon. When you work with Richard A. Bokor, of the law office: Richard A. Bokor, P.A., Richard A. Bokor will walk you through the entire process. He will take great care to explain your rights in detail so you can make an informed decision about how you would like to proceed. He will break down the complex legal jargon and make everything easy to understand so you will feel confident about your rights and your decisions. He will never rush through anything; if you have questions, he will stop and explain things. In short, as your personal injury attorney, Richard A. Bokor will see to it that you are comfortable, and that you fully understand every detail of your case and the court process—from your basic rights to how he will proceed to secure compensation for your injuries.

Provide Experienced Counsel

Once you fully understand your rights and how the laws apply, you will now need to go through all your options to assess the risks versus potential for success of each. As your personal injury lawyer in Tampa, FL (and in all of Florida), Richard A. Bokor, P.A. will take the time to help you fully grasp the differences between settling out of court and going to trial to win a jury award. Attorney Richard A. Bokor will explain how each may affect your overall compensation based on the particular details of your case, who the defendant is, and even past compensation awards for similar cases.  He will also explain all risks of loss and all potential costs to you.

Richard A. Bokor understands that clients often feel intense anxiety after they have experienced an injury, especially if it is a severe one, and he will take the wheel, relieving you of your stress and anxiety as much as possible. He will provide you with the knowledge to assess whether you want or need to settle quickly, or if you can afford to wait it out for a potentially bigger settlement. There are always many options and strategies for every personal injury claim, and Richard A. Bokor will walk you through everything, providing the type of knowledgeable counsel you will only get from someone with the kind of extensive experience he has.

Quality Court Representation

While it is true that most personal injury cases are usually settled out of court, a seasoned personal injury lawyer will always be prepared and ready to go to trial. If an insurance company denies a claim, then a civil trial may be necessary to recover the damages you are owed. If there are varying accounts of how the crash/injury occurred, meaning that the defendant refuses to acknowledge negligence, then you must go to Court via a lawsuit. In cases where there could be partial negligence assigned to both parties, or multiple parties, then we will often need to go to court or mediation to settle that as well.

Again, most claims will be settled out of court, but if trial is necessary you will want a personal injury lawyer who isn’t afraid to take it to the defendant in an open court setting. Richard A. Bokor has tried over 150 cases before the courts and his reputation is known by judges and insurance companies alike. Insurance companies are well aware that Attorney Richard A. Bokor won’t hesitate to go to court, and because of this they are often times more likely to settle out of court for a higher compensation dollar amount than they ordinarily would. This is because insurance companies understand that empathetic juries typically award plaintiffs much higher financial awards when negligence is proven. Therefore, it’s often better for the defendant’s insurance company to settle out of court, and avoid the risk of a jury hitting them hard when they empathize with a plaintiff’s situation, considering their injuries, stress, and suffering.

You must be aware that the individual defendant usually pays nothing out of his/her pocket. It is the insurance company that most always “calls the shots”.


The facts aren’t always clear, and many times a case requires further investigation. Additionally, sometimes defendants (through their insurance companies) may try to gloss over important elements or even hide facts that they know would implicate their negligence. Rest assured this will not stand. Richard A. Bokor will hire top investigators, from retired police detectives to criminal analysts, all who know how to dig, and where to dig, to deliver facts and evidence that can support your case, and help win a large settlement for your injuries.  Remember that the defendant(s)’ side also will spend thousands of dollars trying to support their version of the case as well.
