Personal Injury Case Settlement
In Orlando, Florida, many cases settle before going to court. Sometimes clients fear the imposition on their life of having to do depositions, go to court, the potential of going to a trial before a judge and jury. A vast majority of cases settle before that happens, but it’s important that you hire an attorney who from the very beginning prepares your case as if you will ultimately have to go to trial. By doing that, the insurance companies know that it’s going to be an uphill battle and that it is in their favor to settle the case before having to incur the expense of battling this out in court.
You should certainly never worry about not moving forward with a case because you worry about being taken to court and the time and expense it takes to do that. A vast majority of cases settle before suit. Certainly at the Victory Law Firm, we push our cases very aggressively. When we settle a case, we settle it for top dollar. The specifics of your case are something that we’d love to discuss, so please reach out to the Victory Law Firm to discuss these types of things further.
Just yesterday we were speaking with a client who asked us how her preexisting physical conditions might affect her new case. Preexisting conditions are one of the ways that insurance companies love to attack your case, and try to devalue your case, and tell you your case is worth less than what it is, and it takes a very skilled and experienced personal injury attorney to navigate those waters.
What we do at the Victory Law Firm is to make sure that the insurance company understands the difference between preexisting conditions and the injuries that you have suffered subsequent to the accident. Insurance companies will try and tie everything to something that has happened before. It is very important that we have a very open relationship with your doctors and are very clear as to what is new and what is not.
Insurance companies will oftentimes hire experts, and it’s important that your attorney be able to hire experts to counter those experts’ testimonies to what might be a preexisting condition. Insurance companies, even if you do have a preexisting condition, have to take you the way you are. They’re not allowed to say, “Well, this all has to do with a prior incident.” If you have a bad back and this accident worsened it, they have to pay for that. They have to take you for what you are not what you could be or should be. It’s a doctrine in Florida called the eggshell plaintiff.
There are many tricks that insurance companies try to do to reduce the value of your case, which is why it’s critically important to talk to an attorney who is skilled and experienced in these matters to handle your case. Do not fear moving forward with the claim because you had a prior claim before, had prior surgeries before, had prior injuries before. It’s not something that’s going to stop you from moving forward with a very successful claim. Please reach out to the Victory Law Firm so we can discuss those types of things further.
