How Does The Personal Injury Claim Process Work In Florida?
It is important to remember that in nearly all situations involving automobile collisions, negligent security and premises liability, the defendant named in the lawsuit is not the party who is responsible for paying you the compensation you rightfully deserve based on the jury verdict or settlement agreement. The named defendant is rarely even consulted in these matters, and the insurance company has stepped into their shoes.
The problem for injury victims is that the insurance company cares primarily about holding onto its money. The insurance company will pay you the least amount of compensation possible as late as possible, despite your needs and the fact that they have been collecting premium payments from their insured, the named defendant, in preparation for this situation.
Understanding Who’s Who In A Personal Injury Trial
Defense attorneys: These are the lawyers hired by the insurance company to stand at the defense table with the defendant whom the insurance company failed to protect from being sued. These attorneys will be at the table opposite to the plaintiffs and will be directed by the insurance company and not the named defendant.
Plaintiff attorneys: Lawyers hired by the injury victims or their families. They are dedicated to helping individuals who have been harmed seek compensation and justice through the civil legal system. They work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients and play a vital role in upholding the principles of justice and accountability in society.
Judge: The judge will be in robes and will preside over the proceedings from the elevated bench in the front of the Courtroom.
Jury: The Jury will be comprised of fellow citizens from your area. The jury will be in the jury box and will be performing their civic duty by attending the trial, listening to all the evidence, and ultimately deciding the case for the plaintiff or defendant. Plaintiff attorneys will ask all of the potential jurors, known as the jury pool, a series of questions designed to select only the jurors that will be most favorable to your case.
Insurance adjuster: This person is the “true” client of the defense attorney. The insurance adjuster will sit in the galley of the courtroom behind the defense attorney’s table. They will be there every day and will be seen consulting with the defense attorney but they will not be introduced to the jury. They are in control of the money that the insurance company will offer to settle a case or in charge of reporting back to the company what the verdict was. The insurance adjuster will not be seen consulting with the named defendant because the insurance company has set up a system that does not require any input from the named defendant. In this system, the named defendant is just a puppet on the string of the defense attorneys and the insurance adjuster.
