What does it mean to be a personal injury attorney?
A personal injury attorney provides legal help to those who’ve been injured as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of someone or something else, such as a person, company, government agency, or other similar entity.

It is important that you find an attorney with a good standing at the Florida Bar as well as exemplary recognition throughout your state (such as awards, community outreach). Once you have made your selection make a consultation appointment and don’t forget to bring all your questions.
When your case is most likely to settle
Once you know your medical diagnosis and after you know all the responsible parties. Don’t settle before you know your medical diagnosis and the identity of all the responsible parties.
While your case can be settled at any time, the next most logical time to settle the case is before trial. Trials are expensive and juries and judges are not always predictable.
What factors can quicken the settlement time
The ability of the defendant to pay. Ideally, defendants have insurance to pay your claim. Otherwise, they need to pay from their personal or business assets.
The ability of your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM) coverage to pay. In motor vehicle cases, even if the other side doesn’t have enough insurance/assets to pay a claim, you can claim through your own UM policy.
Once you have determined the insurance coverages available and obtained all medical records and bills, you must set forth the reason why the insurance company should pay a reasonable amount to resolve the claim. You must establish the elements of negligence: liability, causation, and damages.
