How Do Florida Injury & Accident Lawyers Help Settle Your Case?

lawyers help settle your accident or injury case

It’s hard to overstate the effect that an attorney can have on your settlement negotiation for your South Florida accident or injury case. A study by Nolo found that injury victims are almost two times as likely to receive a fair settlement with an at-fault party (or their insurance company) when they are represented by an attorney.  

Why is that? What is it about a South Florida injury attorney that makes such a difference in obtaining just compensation for your accident or injury? The elite professionals at Clayton Trial Lawyers (“CTL”) answer those questions in this blog and offer explanations of why South Florida injury lawyers help settle your case and can get you the most compensation for your injuries.  

Understanding the Law and Proving Liability.  

First and foremost, an experienced Florida accident lawyer will have an in-depth knowledge of the state and local laws that influence the circumstances of your accident. Possessing this understanding of the statutes and case law precedent gives the lawyer a keen ability to assess your case, determine liability, and chart the most direct course for your settlement negotiation. Ultimately, the best lawyers help settle your case for you.

Familiarity with Insurance Coverage and the Settlement Process. 

Whether it’s a car accident, personal injury, or construction site injury, an attorney will always inquire about the at-fault party’s insurance coverage. Experienced South Florida injury attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the “ins and outs” of an insurance policy, and will know how to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries. The familiarity and experience in dealing with these liability policies give you a leg-up when it comes time to negotiate a settlement.  

Oftentimes, when insurance coverage is in place, the attorney will negotiate on your behalf directly with the insurance company. The attorney’s knowledge of the case, knowledge of the law, and knowledge of insurance policies create a thorough understanding of the settlement process, thereby helping you maximize your compensation.  

Negotiation Skills

Attorneys—through their education and experience—have an innate sense of the atmosphere and pressure points in a settlement negotiation. Experienced and skilled attorneys know exactly how to present your case to the at-fault party and their insurance company to maximize your recovery in a settlement discussion. If you have been in an accident or have been injured through no fault of your own, there’s no waitin’—call Clayton!
