How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida?
When you or a loved one are seriously injured, monetary and emotional damages quickly add up. But you may be hesitant to seek legal action for your personal injury claim because you don’t know how much it costs to hire a personal injury lawyer in Florida. At Moody Law, serving Lakeland, Winter Haven, and Tampa, FL, we can help you understand that there is no upfront price associated with hiring an accident attorney in this state; you only pay our attorneys a fee if you win your case and financial compensation.
The first step in any personal injury lawsuit is meeting with our attorneys to discuss the details of you or your loved one’s case. This consultation is completely free. Since there is no cost for you to speak with our team, there is no downside for you. We recommend that you contact an attorney as soon as possible so we can preserve as much evidence as possible and avoid going over the two-year statutes of limitations for personal injury cases.
Contingency Fee Basis
If you have a valid case and we decide to move forward with filing a personal injury lawsuit, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no upfront cost to you. We will only take a portion of the financial compensation awarded to you if you win your case via settlement or verdict. We will discuss our percentage fee with you and make sure you fully understand the details before we move forward with your case.
What Can You Recover with a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
There are many types of damages that can be awarded in personal injury lawsuits. All dental and medical expenses will be taken into account when we work to attain a favorable settlement or verdict. In addition, we will take any lost wages or lowered wage-earning capacity into consideration. Property damage can also be included in your award.
Finally, you can be awarded money for the emotional trauma that you have sustained as a result of the personal injury. Compensation for pain and suffering may be awarded for permanent injuries, depression, changes to your facial appearance, and more.
How Do I Know if I Should File a Lawsuit?
Typically, personal injury lawsuits are filed when patients have suffered significant damages. For example, if patients have extremely high medical bills or have suffered a significant injury as a result of dental malpractice, they are more likely to have a claim that is worth filing. Patients who have dental problems such as prolonged pain, nerve damage, disfigurement, and other serious issues have a better chance of recovering good compensation for their case.
