How We Build Your Case in a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Fort Lauderdale

Personal Injury Law

If you or a loved one has experienced catastrophic personal injury and you believe it is due to the negligence of another party, you should retain the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering. Clayton Trial Lawyers has a proven record of winning significant settlements and awards for clients in personal injury cases. While we are compassionate to our clients, we are ruthless to our opponents, aggressively fighting for our clients’ rights. When you come to us for your initial consultation, we will first determine the strength of your case. In order for a personal injury lawsuit to be successful, there must be an injury, liability on the part of a third party, and collectability – meaning the third party or the party’s insurance must be able to pay. This initial interview will help us begin to develop a winning strategy for you. Before we begin our in-depth investigation to build your case, we will ask you to sign a retainer agreement, setting out our terms of payment. 

Building your Case

In the initial phase, we will collect all available documentation, including personal testimonies from the injured party and witnesses, police reports, accident reports, medical records, any bills you’ve paid, payments to insurance companies you’ve made, your earning power before the injury, and other critical information specific to your case. We will then collaborate with our many experts to build a deep knowledge of the causes of your case, all the parties who may be found liable in the case, and the breadth of your injuries, both immediate and long-term. These experts might include accident reconstruction experts, maintenance specialists, product liability experts, specialists in Department of Transportation regulations, and life care planners. We may also enlist medical experts in broad areas of specialty, such as orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, and pain management experts, to provide us with the extent of your possible losses.

Demand Letter

When we have constructed a strong case, we will craft a detailed demand package. This demand package is sent to all liable third parties, outlining the details of your case and demanding compensation. Damages could include physical, emotional, and psychological pain and injury; medical expenses; lost wages; loss of consortium; punitive damages; wrongful death; the cost of alterations to home or car due to injuries; and more. Because of Clayton Trial Lawyers’ track record of winning jury trials and our shrewd negotiation strategies, third parties usually offer significant settlements to our clients to avoid going to court against us. 

Going to Trial

If any liable parties in your case refuse to offer a reasonable settlement, we will take your case to court. We will file a personal injury lawsuit against any third parties who refuse a reasonable settlement. After filing the lawsuit, the next step is discovery. During discovery, the plaintiff and defense each request documentation, evidence, and depositions from the other side. As we gather new information we continually adjust our winning strategy to strengthen our position before heading to court. Juries love us, and we win large jury awards. Because of our reputation, a court case is unlikely. However, we are always ready to fight for our clients in court if necessary. We will vigorously and aggressively litigate your case and win you a substantial award for your suffering.  When Clayton Trial Lawyers takes your case, our expertise covers you from our first meeting through the time you receive compensation. We are with you every single step of the way. Contact us today to see how we can help you.
