Most personal injury victims are not well versed with the law and fail to fully understand their right to compensation under Florida law. Hence, they are more likely to fall prey to an experienced insurance adjuster who might make only a low ball settlement offer; an offer far below the compensation the victim deserves.
However, an experienced and skilled attorney can assist a personal injury victim in obtaining the full compensation he or she deserves. Personal injury attorneys are experienced in dealing with insurance and other large companies. They are skilled negotiators, understand the law and are familiar with how much a particular case should fairly and reasonably settle for. If a case can’t be settled, a lawyer can file a lawsuit and take the case to a jury trial if necessary.
