Nocatee Truck Accident Attorneys
Time is of the essence for any truck accident case. We understand that this can be a very trying time of families who have been victimized by a truck accident involving one of more family member. You, rightfully, want to concentrate on the health and well-being of the family. But the reality is that what you do immediately after a personal injury truck accident can dramatically affect how much money you will receive. Collecting and preserving the proper evidence is critical. Ensuring that you understand the issues and what your rights are before speaking to an insurance company is an absolute must. Taking photographs, getting proper medical attention and documentation, and identifying and interviewing witnesses are all important steps that should be taken immediately. An experience truck accident attorney will know how and what to do, but it is very important to contact one as quickly as possible. Most accident attorneys will respond to you 24 hours/7 days a week. At Shorstein, and Lasnetski, & Gihon, we are always available to help those that have suffered from a truck accident.
The art of negotiation involves leverage. The stronger the case, the more leverage you have. The more leverage you have, the more valuable your claim. Truck accident lawyers strengthen truck accident cases by building the case from the ground up. Investigation, collection of evidence, uncovering positive evidence, and artfully negotiating with insurance companies are just a few ways that a personal injury lawyer can help. And of course, if you and the insurance company cannot agree on a fair amount for your claim, the accident attorney must be ready, willing and able to litigate your case at trial in front of a jury.
The most important factor in choosing a truck accident attorney is that you are comfortable with them. Do they have enough experience? Is their office big enough to handle my case, but not so big that they are like a factory? Will you have personal contact with the attorney? Does the attorney understand me and my community? These are all questions that can only be answered by sitting down with the attorney, looking them in the eye, and determining whether it is a good fit for you. Truck accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorney takes all the risk and pays all costs of litigation up front. If the truck accident lawyer doesn't recover any money, he or she is out the costs spent and the time working on the case. If the truck accident lawyer does recover money, the attorney's fee is a percentage of the recovery. The percentage amount depends on where in the litigation process the case is settled. The percentage amount is standard and regulated throughout Florida, so you are typically able to choose your attorney without worrying that one attorney's fee may be a higher percentage than another's. You can concentrate on which attorney is the best fit for you.
