Do I have a case?
In order to determine whether you have a case, we will need to speak with you so that we can understand all the unique facts and circumstances related to your claim. The consultation is free and does not create an obligation to hire an attorney. All information that you provide to us will be held strictly confidential and will allow us to evaluate your case. We can then explain to you the rights and remedies available to you under Florida Law.
How much are the attorney fees and costs?
We handle personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means if the case is not successful you are not obligated to pay any attorney fees. We only get paid if we obtain a successful settlement or verdict on your behalf. Our fees are a percentage of the total we collect on your behalf.
Am I obligated if I call or e-mail to discuss my case?
All consultations are free. Fees are only charged if your case is accepted and a recovery of money damages is received. If after discussing your case you decide not to pursue it or to move forward with another Miami injury law firm there is no obligation on your part. Any information you disclose to us is protected by the attorney-client privilege and will not be shared with anyone without your permission.

Do I have to go to trial, or can the case be settled out of court?
You, the client, make the final determination as to whether you will accept an out of court settlement or whether you will proceed to trial to have a judge or a jury decide your case. Generally, most cases settle out of court. However, we will take your case to trial if we agree that it is in your best interest to do so. The court mandates that the parties attempt to settle the case before trial through a process known as mediation. In a mediation, an impartial third party, often a retired attorney or judge will preside over a confidential settlement conference and will assist the parties in attempting to settle the case out of court. Mediations are highly successful which is why they have become a part of the litigation process.
What should I look for in selecting a lawyer to represent me?
Before hiring a Miami injury lawyer the client should learn about the law firm’s reputation. In addition, it is important to be represented by an injury attorney with a strong background including education, training and experience. Find out if the lawyer has handled cases similar to yours. Make sure you understand how you will be expected to pay the law firm’s fees and costs. Who will do the work on your case and what will be expected from you?
