At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we have one goal: To seek maximum compensation for each client’s losses. If you have been injured in an accident in Lakeland, call us for a free consultation today.
If you are struggling to cope with the fallout from an accident, you know that the process can be exhausting. Going to the doctor. Getting your car or bike repaired. Explaining to your employer that you need more time off from work. These tasks just scratch the surface of everything that is involved in recovering from traumatic injuries resulting from someone else’s mistake or neglect.
At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we understand what you are going through, and we are here to help make the process as quick and painless as possible. We have been helping accident victims in Lakeland for decades. Let us help you pursue the compensation that you deserve.
Do I Need a Lawyer for My Personal Injury Claim?
When you get injured in an accident that is someone else’s fault, you are entitled to seek financial compensation for all of your accident-related losses. This includes not only your outstanding medical bills and the costs to repair your vehicle (if you were injured in a collision), but your future medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses as well. It takes an experienced personal injury lawyer to calculate the total losses resulting from a traumatic accident – without legal representation, you will almost certainly end up with less than you deserve.
Remember, when you file an insurance claim – even when you file a claim with your own insurance company – the insurance company is not on your side. The adjuster will not make sure you understand your rights, and you will be pressured to settle quickly before you know the true extent of your harm.
Can Delays Hurt My Claim?
Yes, there are a number of different ways that delays can potentially hurt your claim for financial compensation. First, after an accident, you need to collect evidence to establish liability. If you wait too long, this evidence could vanish. Similarly, if you wait to seek medical attention, your doctor may not be able to conclusively link the accident to your injuries. In addition, under Florida law there is a time limit for filing a personal injury claim (known as the “statute of limitations”), and if you miss the window to file your claim you could lose your rights entirely.
At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, all we do is represent accident victims and their families. We know what is at stake, and we can take action quickly to preserve your claim for compensation.
Is It Expensive to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
No. Or, at least, it shouldn’t be. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we handle all personal injury claims on a contingency-fee basis. This means:
- There are no up-front costs.
- There are no monthly legal bills.
- There are no fees or costs of any kind unless we win your case.
If we succeed in securing an insurance settlement or a verdict at trial, your legal fees will be a percentage of the amount we recover on your behalf. If we don’t win, you don’t pay any fees or costs. You decide when (and if) to settle, and we will make sure you know exactly how much you can expect to take home so that you can make an informed decision about resolving your claim.
How Do I Choose the Right Personal Injury Law Firm for My Claim?
There are several law firms serving the Lakeland area, and your choice of legal representation could have a significant impact on your financial recovery. So, how do you choose the right law firm for your claim? Here are some key considerations to keep in mind:
- Experience – How experienced are the firm’s attorneys? Will the firm’s paralegals and case managers be able to answer your questions and efficiently deal with your claim?
- Results – Does the firm have a track record of proven results? Do the firm’s attorneys go to trial when necessary to maximize their clients’ financial compensation?
- Accessibility – Where are the firm’s offices? Are they convenient to Lakeland? Do the firm’s attorneys and staff members make themselves available 24/7?
- Focus – Does the firm focus exclusively on personal injury representation? Or, will your attorney split his or her time between your claim and other types of cases?
- Guarantee – Does the firm offer a no-fee guarantee? Or, will you be required to pay costs or fees even if your claim is unsuccessful?
