Your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando, should have your best interest and health at heart. That is first and foremost in any injury claim. To that end, Brown Law, P.L. has many good doctors in town to refer you to that also have that same goal in mind rather than a goal of over billing. It is important to note that to get well, you will probably have to receive treatment 2-3 time a week at a minimum. So it is essential to be able to get medical help near where you live or where you work, whichever is convenient for you. We have a cabinet full of literature of such reputable doctors all over town that we can provide you with so that you have a choice.
Your treatment is of the utmost importance, both to your health and to your claim. You must make a commitment to it or the insurance company will not take your claim seriously. For example, you cannot be on Facebook, partying, or showing all kinds of pictures having a good time if you are hurt. Insurance companies are not stupid. They check social media.
It is important to note, that at the end of your treatment, you may not be 100%, but you should have reached maximum medical improvement. Don’t let insurance companies tell you soft tissue injuries are minor accidents. You could break a bone and it could heal better and stronger than before. Soft tissue injuries never really heal, you learn to manage such injuries, and can be exacerbated by additional accidents.
Please be sure you speak to your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando, Brown Law, P.L., before speaking to an insurance company or giving a recorded statement. The reason for this is simple. If you do this, without your injury lawyer in Orlando, now it becomes your word against the insurance company with no witness to what was said. We have a case in house right now, where the client gave a statement, because she felt she had nothing to hide, before hiring her Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando, Brown Law, P.L. then she becomes our client and the insurance company wants to send out an investigator for a recorded statement. At that point, the client tells us that the statement that was given to the insurance company previously, was recorded. I refused to let the client give another recorded statement, until I heard the first one, and explained to the client, that the reason they were doing this was to see if they could find any inconsistencies between first and second statement. Now, I am fighting with the insurance company to get a copy of that first statement. So you see some of the perils you could be up against with insurance companies if you do not have your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando, Brown Law, P.L. on your side.
Here’s what to expect when you visit your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando: Attorney Steen James Brown will meet with you personally if you come to our office. He will want to know all about your injuries first and foremost. Then of equal importance, will be your health and auto insurance information and any medical treatment you have already been provided. He will want to know if you talked to any insurance company involved and/or gave any recorded statements and what you said. He will want to know if there were any witnesses to the accident and if you can provide him with their information.
You may talk to your own insurance company at any time about property damage ONLY.
He will consider your case and decide if it is a viable one for him to take on. The reason for this is simply that your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando, Brown Law, P.L. has to invest a minimum of $500 on each and every claim (more if suit is filed) before any monies are recouped. So even though we take every case Personally, we want to be as sure as we can be that it is a viable case for you and for us. Sometimes, you can’t know that until you see the insurance policies themselves. That is why we continuously try to educate that Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage is so important. We see far too many accidents where the at fault party has no Bodily Injury Insurance and you have sustained injuries due to their negligence.
If it looks like your case is viable, you will be asked to sign a contingency retainer agreement and other paperwork pertinent to a personal injury case. A contingency contract simply means that unless we recoup anything for you, you owe us nothing in return.
Just like anything else in life there are attorneys and there are attorneys. We often adjust the amount of our portion of your claim to see that you get the most benefit in your pocket as you are the one who suffered the pain of injury. We are often told by medical providers that they never see a law firm do that.
As well, if it is in your best interest to take an offer an insurance company makes to you, we will tell you and release you. This almost never happens, as insurance companies try to low ball you with a $1000 or $1500 offer to go away. But we have one in house right now, where the claim is against the person’s own uninsured motorist coverage as the person that hit our client and totaled her car carried no bodily injury insurance. The client’s insurance company is offering just a little more than the client would get if we were to procure the total of the client’s uninsured motorist coverage and take out our share. We would not do this to our clients. Since I stated earlier, one of our goals is that most of the settlement go to the client, we are going to advise this client to take the offer.
I share all of this with you because I want to be your Personal Injury Law Firm in Orlando!
