Settlement

Are there alternatives to going to court in a Florida truck accident case?

Well first of all, if you’re injured, especially seriously injured, you should go to a lawyer as soon as possible. And this lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company on the other side. And it’s possible, very possible that there can be a settlement. If there’s a settlement, you don’t go to court. Also, if you file a lawsuit, there may be court proceedings in which you don’t have to participate in and the case can be settled. It can be going to court, trying a case. Just like in all cases, the vast majority of cases are settled or have a settlement offer. But it’s up to you and your lawyer whether to accept that offer. If you don’t, then a jury ultimately determines, not only fault, but damages.

Are there alternatives to going to court in a Florida auto accident case?

Yes. A case can always be settled, but that’s between you and your counsel, your attorney. Your attorney will be able to advise you on how to settle the case, if he should settle the case, and when to settle the case.

How long does it take to settle a Florida auto accident case?

Well, the first thing that you must establish is if you’re hurt and if you’re hurt, are you going to get worse? Are you going to get better? When you reach a point where you’re not going to get any better, then you can try to settle your case through your council. And if this doesn’t work out, then your lawyer will follow a lawsuit for you. It can take anywhere from six months to a few years.

Should I accept a settlement offer in my Florida medical malpractice case?

This is no size fits all, but if they’re offering you money and this is before you’ve gone to a lawyer, I can almost guarantee you they’re offering you pennies on the dollar. In order to protect yourself, you should go to a medical malpractice lawyer, who would advise you appropriately. They can’t guarantee that they’re going to get more or less, but I can almost guarantee you that if you’re offered money out of the box, so to speak, you’re being offered pennies on the dollar, you shouldn’t accept it.

The car accident was the other driver’s fault. Can I just settle it myself without an attorney?

Of course you can. But if you have physical injuries and if you have physical injuries that are persisting, especially at the time that you’re thinking of a settlement, you’re not capable of dealing with the professionals from the insurance company in evaluating your case. I would suggest you always go to a lawyer and always have that lawyer on your side because the lawyer is usually able to get you multiple times what the insurance company would offer you as a layman who has no experience in this matter.

What should I do if the insurance company offers me a check right away?

You should run for the hills. You should run to your nearest lawyer. You should seek out a lawyer experienced in personal injury and auto accident cases, because I can almost guarantee you that if they offer you a check, this check will be a very small percentage of what your injuries are worth.

Will my Florida Medical Malpractice Case Settle Out of Court?

Statistically, if you have a viable legitimate case with serious injuries, I think approximately 50 to 60% settle out of court. Now, by out of court, you mean without filing a lawsuit, without going through certain court procedures, then the percentage is a lot less.

If you’re talking about cases that settle but do not go to jury trial but settle up to the courthouse steps, then the majority of cases with serious damages that are legitimate cases do settle. Some of your most serious cases do not settle. Some of your most serious cases are offered money, but not appropriate money. That’s between you and your lawyer. That’s why you should always go to a lawyer as soon as possible.
