Popular question:

How long does it take to receive an offer of compensation?

The time it takes from reporting a personal injury claim to settling it depends on the details involved in your case. For example, We have had pedestrian personal injury claim be paid out within four weeks of filing the claim. However, not all cases are the same. The “ devil is in the details”. “Usually you can expect the case to be settled a few weeks after treatment has concluded. This allows time for the physicians to complete their final report and a reasonable processing time for the insurance company.

Cases that go to trial often takes over eight (8) months to get a verdict.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of another's actions or negligence. We c an help. Our Managing Attorney, William John DiPetrillo passed the Florida Bar examination in the top ten percent (10%) on his first try and he has had over 24 years of experience under his belt since.

These five factors significantly impact you settlement, so please bear them in mind.

Coral Springs Injury Attorney

1. Evidence of Fault & Comparative Negligence.

You should report the accident per the 2021 Florida Statutes listed shown below.

Another driver might be 100 percent at fault for an accident like a rear-end collision where the victim waited for a red light to turn green. This type of evidence might consist of a police accident report, traffic, dash-cam, surveillance camera footage of the crash, passenger, eyewitness statements, and photos of the vehicles involved. Sometimes, drivers admit fault to the investigating police officer.

A plea of guilty to an underlying traffic ticket can significantly influence any car accident settlement or verdict in many states. A guilty plea of guilty to an underlying traffic ticket can affect substantially any car accident settlement or verdict.

2. The Nature and Extent of Your Injuries

Is your injury permanent? Nearly all strains or sprains involving muscles, tendons, and ligaments are going to clear up in six to eight weeks.

Here are a few examples of permanent injuries: Severe traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, Traumatic amputations, Burns from fire, explosions or electrocution, Fractures, especially if surgery was required and hardware was implanted, Organ damage, Spinal injuries, like one or more disc herniation and Severe dental injuries.

Victims who suffer one or more of the types above of injuries due to the carelessness and negligence of somebody else will require extensive medical care. They are likely to endure protracted or lifelong pain and suffering. The extent of these types of injuries makes them more compensable.

3. Your Medical Records and Bills

Expect the opposing insurance company to examine these in exacting detail. Seek medical assistance immediately after the crash. If you experience any pain or discomfort, ask the 911 operators to send paramedics along with the police. The paramedics will treat you at the scene and transport you to the most local emergency room. A record will be made of that.

After examining and treating you, the emergency room physician will make another record and provide you with instructions. Follow them. Those records from the paramedics and emergency room will begin a long history of the extent of your injuries along with treatment.

Never skip an appointment with a doctor or therapist. Your credibility could be attacked, and you can be labeled a malingerer, impacting car accident settlement or verdict.

4. Comparative Negligence It might be alleged that you were partially at fault for the accident. Even if that is proved, you can still recover compensation for your injuries, but any settlement or verdict would account for any percentage of fault attributable to you. Most states bar any recovery by a person determined to be 50 or 51 percent at fault for an accident. For example, if a jury found you to be 15 percent at fault for an accident, a $100,000 verdict would be reduced to $85,000.

5. The Request for a Statement

You’re likely to be contacted by the opposing insurance company shortly after your accident “just to see if you’re feeling any better.” That’s just a pretext for trying to obtain a recorded statement from you about how your accident happened. Never give an opposing insurance a statement of any kind without an attorney being present on your behalf. The law doesn’t require you to provide one.

That person who phones you already knows how the accident happened. They possess a copy of the police report. If that person says your claim will be denied and closed for want of a statement, contact a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney right away. Upon being retained, they will get the opposing insurance company right away. In the interim, don’t mention your accident on social media.

An opposing insurance company will do everything possible to attempt to devalue your injury claim. Until you retain a quality and experienced personal injury lawyer, protect your claim or lawsuit by keeping these five factors that could impact your car accident settlement in mind at all times.
