The Insurance Companies Aren’t Here to Help You
Don’t agree to anything until you’ve had a chance to speak with us. No matter what they may tell you, the insurance companies aren’t on your side. They’re in business to make a profit. They will always try to get away with paying as little as possible. Rarely do their offers to settle provide for the total costs of your injuries. To them, you are simply a problem that needs to go away as quickly and cheaply as possible.
You need a personal injury attorney who possesses the legal expertise and resources needed to prevail against the insurance companies. We are skilled at investigating the causes of your accident and gathering the evidence that will be needed to establish your claim. This evidence will be used to force the insurance companies to pay you the total amount of compensation you are owed for your injuries. If the insurance companies won’t agree to a fair settlement, we are willing and able to argue your case in court.
Answers to Your Personal Injury Questions
Posting about your accident on social media can be a big mistake. You never know how an attorney might use your posts against you. In fact, we recommend that you make all of your posts private, and refrain from posting at all while your case is ongoing. This is because it may appear that you aren’t really injured if you are posting from the gym, enjoying a night on the town with friends, or relaxing at the park.
Every case is different, so there is no way to know beforehand exactly how much you will get from a settlement. The insurance company will likely offer you an initial settlement, but while this is quick money, it may not take into account the whole picture. Retaining the services of a lawyer who knows the right questions to ask and what demands to make may take longer, but it will likely yield better results. An experienced lawyer will be able to estimate for factors such as:
• The severity of your injuries and the impact they will have on you, both short and long-term
• The costs of ongoing medical treatment
• Your lost time at work and loss of earning capacity
• The ability of responsible parties to pay for your losses
In Florida, personal injury lawyers are required to explain their personal injury fees up front when taking a case. They can operate on contingency, retainer, or hourly. Contingency means your lawyer will receive a percentage of the amount recovered once an agreement has been reached. Retainer means that you pay an up front cost to the lawyer, which they draw from as they work on your case. Hourly means that you pay for the total number of hours the attorney works on your case.
At Rivas Law Group, we operate on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay until your case has been settled or won in court.
