It may have been a wet floor in the mall or maybe a cracked city side walk. Maybe it was a careless driver that ran a red light. No matter how your injury occurred, if it was due to the negligence of someone else, you are entitled to compensation and Tampa injury lawyers can help. Don’t hesitate to contact an attorney if you or a loved one are hurt because of the carelessness of another. An attorney will aid you in navigating through the maze of legal paperwork that must be completed and will negotiate with the insurance adjusters on your behalf, leaving you to concentrate on the important task of recovery.
Though they may seem as if they’re trying to be helpful, the insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies, not you. They will try to settle the case for the least possible outflow of money. With an attorney on your side protecting your rights, you can be assured that you’ll get the compensation you deserve. Medical bills and equipment, prescription medications, missed work, and pain and suffering all are the responsibility of the one who caused the injury. Your attorney will make sure of it.
Most Tampa injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means they collect no money from you unless they win the case. At that point, they receive a prearranged percentage of your settlement, usually between 30 – 45% of the settlement. This is standard procedure and ensures that you know your attorney is working as diligently as possible, as the more recovered for you, the more the attorney receives too.
When trying to find an injury attorney, the Internet is sometimes a good place to start. Many websites will give you the information necessary to learn about potential law firms. This allows the attorney to learn more about your case and give guidance to assist with your recovery. Don’t try to do it alone. Find an attorney you can trust, one that you work well with, and one you are sure will work hard for you. You’ll get the compensation you are entitled to, all while you concentrate on getting your life back in order.
