Finding the Right Attorney After Your Florida Truck Accident

If you have been in a Florida car accident involving a truck, you will likely need a good Florida personal injury attorney. Most Florida truck accidents result in serious injuries, property damage, and complex legal and liability issues. A good attorney can safeguard your rights and can ensure that as much of your injuries and damages are covered as possible. However, how can you find the right attorney for you?

The first step is to find a Florida personal injury attorney who handles Florida truck accidents. Then, you will want to contact the attorney for an initial meeting. Many good attorneys offer an initial no-cost and no-obligation consultation. This initial meeting is your chance to ask questions and to decide whether a specific attorney is right for you. Among the things you will want to find out are:

1) Experience. Look for an attorney who has years of experience in Florida truck accident cases as well as trial experience. An attorney with extensive experience with insurance companies can also be very useful in helping you to negotiate with insurance providers. Look for someone who has handled many cases and has also won many cases.

2) Specialty. Ask a potential attorney about the types of cases they have worked on and the similarities between those cases and yours. Be aware that your case may overlap several practice areas. For example, if you have sustained a Florida spinal cord injury and head injury in a truck accident, look for an attorney who has handled spinal cord injury cases, brain injury cases and truck accident cases.

3) Professional standing. Look for a Florida personal injury attorney who has good standing with the bar association, a good education from a recognized law school, and a good reputation. Also, ask for – and check – references. A good attorney will be able to let you speak to references who can attest to the attorney’s professionalism and helpfulness. Be wary of attorneys who promise results as well – good attorneys know that there is no such thing as a guaranteed win or claim.

4) Price. Many Florida personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning that they will not be paid until and unless you recover for your claim. However, you will want to ask whether your attorney works on a contingency basis and you will want to ask about fees to ensure that the fees seem reasonable to you.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
