After an accident, how do I know if I need an attorney?

Although having an attorney represent your interests after an accident is optional in Florida, an experienced legal professional can help you understand your rights, explain what sorts of damages you are entitled to seek and protect your right to recover compensation. Insurance companies tend to settle claims for less and will attempt to close your case as soon as possible.

Depending on the severity of your case, an attorney can also help you protect your rights and hold the negligent party accountable. When your case involves severe injuries, disputed liability, wrongful death, dog bites, defective products, medical malpractice or slip-and-fall incidents, an experienced personal injury lawyer can handle the legal complexities so that you can focus on your recovery.

How can a personal injury lawyer help when there is a disputed liability in my claim?

Disputed liability means that the other party involved in your incident denies being at fault or claims that you share the blame. In these types of cases, the complexity increases substantially. A personal injury lawyer can help by gathering and analyzing evidence to unequivocally establish the other party’s fault. This could involve everything from reconstructing the accident scene to interviewing witnesses, reviewing police and accident reports and working with experts in the field.

Having once worked on the side of the insurance companies in these cases, Mr. Tighe understands the tactics they use to shift blame and can counteract those effectively.

Can I speak to insurance representatives without an attorney?

Yes. However, consider that insurance companies have skilled staff and attorneys who will do everything in their power to minimize your settlement. An experienced attorney can explain your options and what your compensation should include, represent your best interests on your behalf and negotiate with the insurance representatives when required. Having a knowledgeable lawyer can positively impact your case and help you protect your rights.

Should I agree to fill out an incident report after falling and suffering injuries at a store or restaurant?

Yes, you can fill out an incident report and provide all the facts and circumstances that led to your accident and subsequent injury. The report could be later used to file a claim against the owner should the accident result from the premises owner’s negligence.

What evidence should I bring to my attorney after a boat accident?

The clothes you wore that day and pictures taken from as many angles as possible could be very useful evidence. In addition, local maritime authorities will investigate and provide further evidence about the boat accident that caused your injuries.

What can I do if the at-fault party’s insurance company unfairly denies my claim?

Know that you don’t have to accept an insurance company’s decision to deny your claim. You have the right to seek legal counsel and fight for the compensation you deserve. A personal injury lawyer can help you understand your legal options, guide you through the process and represent your interests in court if necessary.

Mr. Tighe is skilled at uncovering the evidence needed to support your claim and negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf to get you just compensation. Remember, insurance companies have their own legal teams, so having a professional on your side can be crucial to ensuring you’re not being taken advantage of in the process.
