Choosing The Right Personal Injury Attorney
We had someone ask recently how to go about picking a good personal injury lawyer here in Nassau County and the Amelia Island area. This is what we told them— You want someone who has experience and someone who has been inside of a courtroom and knows what a courtroom looks like and has tried cases similar to the one that you have. That is the number one consideration. You also want someone who’s familiar with the area who’s willing to go out to the areas where the injury or accident occurred and can translate that into your claim. That is another important consideration in picking a personal injury lawyer. If you would like to discuss this further, call us. We’d be happy to go through the ins and outs of your case in much more detail.
Mistakes After a Personal Injury
One mistake that we see clients who come to our office in a personal injury case make is when they wait to act on a case. When you wait, evidence can be lost. For example, in an automobile case, if you wait, the damage to an automobile can be repaired, or if it’s a total loss, it can be sold and never to be found again. That is the Number One mistake that we see clients make.
The second one that we see is that they don’t get medical care immediately. There are certain circumstances where you may not feel like you’re hurt and you don’t go. First off, that’s bad in terms of recovery. Secondly, in Florida, if you don’t seek medical care within 14 days of an automobile accident, you lose your right to have those bills paid under your no-fault insurance policy.
Those are some of the things we see. If you’ve been hurt in an automobile accident or any other personal injury case in Nassau County, Duval County, or Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia, call us. We’ll be happy to help you.
Steps to Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
One of the questions that clients ask when they come into the office is, “How do we get started? What are the steps in starting my case?” It differs from case to case. Initially, you come see the lawyer and we sit down and we talk about the case and find out what kind of case it is. Some cases, we will go to the courthouse immediately and file what is called a complaint. That starts your complaint in the court system. Other cases require us to put defendants on formal notice before we’re able to actually file a lawsuit against them. Come see a lawyer first. Let’s gather up all the facts. Let’s gather the evidence, which is very important. Then we know what we have, we know the direction that we need to take your case, depending on what kind it is. Here in northeast Florida, Nassau County, or Duval County, that’s how it’s done. If you live in those areas and you’ve been hurt, give us a call. We’ll be happy to sit down with you, talk to you in more detail about your case, and figure out what next steps are.
