How to Know If You Need a Car Accident Lawyer
Some minor accidents in Florida may not indicate the need for a personal injury lawyer, especially ones that do not result in injuries or severe vehicle damage. However, car accident victims in Florida should know that they have a right to work with an experienced attorney after any type of accident.
Your attorney will provide advice and strategic guidance in addition to thoroughly investigating your wreck and filing all the needed paperwork on your behalf. In the event that an insurer disputes your claim or wants to offer an amount lower than your total damages, your attorney will negotiate vigorously using their full knowledge of the law and prior outcomes on cases similar to yours.
These services can be valuable in any context, but they are especially beneficial when you have suffered a serious injury, such as:
- Broken bones
- Severe disfigurement
- Significant limited use of your body for 90 or more days
- Permanent loss of use of an appendage or organ
In these cases, your car accident claim can be filed against the liability insurance provider of any drivers partially responsible for the accident. A liability claim can provide more types of damages coverage than no-fault insurance can, such as a higher percentage of lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering.
Other types of cases may involve complex negotiations or intricate legal concepts, particularly when insurers are disputing your claim. Hiring a lawyer may be a good idea in any of the following situations:
- You are being accused of fault for the accident
- Your vehicle repairs are estimated to be thousands of dollars
- An insurer alleges that your damages are not covered
- An insurer requests access to your medical history
- An insurer denies your claim or wants to severely reduce its value
- Your accident involved an employee driver or a company vehicle
- Your accident involved complex circumstances or several parties
How to Choose a Car Accident Lawyer
The right car accident lawyer in Florida has a working knowledge of all of the laws that pertain to your case. They are willing to research the laws and prior case outcomes that reveal relevant legal strategies. They exhaustively document and investigate all of your accident damages, including your full medical costs. They should also have a reputation for working closely with their clients, listening to their demands, and negotiating tirelessly on their behalf. Finally, they must understand the strategies that help clients win cases, both in and out of court.
Any lawyer can claim to have all of these qualities, but a truly qualified attorney will have:
- Awards and accolades from clients, their community, and their peers
- A history of transparent and authentic client testimonials
- A reputation in good standing with the local community and the state bar
- A record of winning settlements and verdicts on behalf of their client
All of these things create a verifiable track record indicating that a Florida car accident attorney is worthy of your trust.
How Much a Personal Injury Lawyer Costs
Most personal injury attorneys in Florida and throughout the U.S. operate on a contingency arrangement.
Here is what that means: your lawyer’s fees are only paid if you win your case, either by obtaining a settlement or a favorable verdict in court. On the other hand, if your lawyer is unable to procure any of the compensation you need, you pay nothing.
For successful cases, your attorney will typically take a percentage of the total damages you have obtained (before medical bills are repaid, etc.). This arrangement encourages your attorney to devote as much of their skills and effort as possible towards seeking the maximum compensation legally available for your injuries and other accident costs.
Steinger, Greene & Feiner operates on a similar contingency agreement. You don’t pay us anything unless we are able to recover money for your losses. That’s our No Fee Guarantee®.
Your first consultation is also always 100% free with no obligation to procure our services afterward, so there’s no risk of finding out your legal options and learning the strategies that could help your case succeed.
HOW CAN A STEINGER, GREENE & FEINER CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER HELP?
Don’t trust an insurance company to tell you everything you need to know, as insurance agents are never on your side in an auto accident case. While insurance companies will offer you compensation, they will be interested in awarding you the smallest amount they can, and it is crucial that you never accept a settlement before speaking to an experienced auto accident attorney. Our lawyers will do everything they can to help you get the maximum amount possible in your case by negotiating with insurance companies, adjusting settlements, or fighting for your best interests in court.
Car accident cases involving personal injury or wrongful death are common in U.S. courts, and our auto accident attorneys have gained valuable experience in a variety of personal injury cases. We understand that many accidents involve negligence or reckless driving, and we are here to stand with you in your fight for justice. Without an attorney, you could accept a meager settlement offered by an insurance company and miss out on valuable compensation without ever knowing your legal options.

Steinger, Greene & Feiner is dedicated to serving clients’ best interests, and we know what legal tactics work in personal injury cases. Our Car Accident Checklist can help to answer your questions.
