After an accident, it is important to speak with an attorney about your rights. You may be entitled to significant financial compensation, and you could lose your rights if you do not take action promptly. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we have been representing accident victims in St. Petersburg and throughout Florida for nearly 30 years.
10 Ways We Help With Your St. Petersburg Accident Claim
When many people get injured in vehicle collisions and other accidents, one of their first questions is whether they should hire an attorney to represent them. If you are wondering whether you should hire a personal injury lawyer, here are 10 reasons to put the team at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk on your side:
1. We Explain Your Rights.
If you have been injured in an accident in St. Petersburg, do you know your rights? Most accident victims do not, and too often this leads to them leaving money on the table. The first step toward just compensation is to understand your rights, and we are happy to explain everything you need to know during your free initial consultation.
2. We Help You Avoid Mistakes.
After an accident, it is critical to avoid common mistakes that could jeopardize your claim for maximum compensation. Our attorneys and professional staff members will walk you through the steps you need to take (and missteps you need to avoid) in order to preserve your rights.
3. We Conduct a Prompt Investigation.
When seeking compensation for accident-related injuries, you need evidence to establish fault in the accident. This requires a prompt investigation. If it appears that you may have a claim, we will work with our trusted experts to quickly investigate and secure the evidence needed to negotiate a settlement or win a verdict at trial.
4. We Make Sure You Get Medical Treatment.
In addition to evidence from the scene, you will also need evidence in the form of medical records demonstrating that your injuries resulted from the accident. We will work with your doctors and provide you with referrals to make sure you receive the medical treatment needed for your physical and financial recoveries.
5. We Provide Staff Assistance 24/7.
When you are involved in an accident, nothing happens on your schedule. We understand the frustrations involved in dealing with an accident, and this is why we make ourselves available to you 24/7. If we are not available immediately to take your call, a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
6. We Calculate Your Total Losses.
Until you know how much you’ve lost, you cannot make an informed decision about protecting your legal rights. We will make sure you avoid settling too soon by calculating the full extent of your physical, financial, and emotional harm.
7. We Negotiate for a Favorable Settlement.
The insurance companies know that you need money quickly, and they will use this to try to pressure you into settling quickly for minimal compensation. Our attorneys will use the facts of your case to negotiate for a maximum insurance settlement.
8. We Prepare Your Case for Trial.
While most personal injury cases settle, some go to trial. If the only way to secure a fair outcome in your case is to go to court, our attorneys fight vigorously to pursue a verdict from the jury.
9. We Help You Make Informed Decisions.
Should you settle? Or, should you take your case to trial? Is it too soon to go back to work? Is it ok to talk about the accident with your family and friends? After an accident, you need to be smart about protecting your rights, and we can help you make informed decisions every step of the way.
10. We Do Not Charge Any Costs or Fees Unless We Win.
Finally, at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we handle all cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means that there are no up-front retainers or hourly rates, and we do not charge you anything unless we help you secure financial compensation. In other words, you have nothing to lose by putting our experience on your side.
