What Can You Expect When Working With a South Florida Personal Injury Attorney?

If you’re injured in a car accident, workplace incident, slip and fall, or any other situation where you might wonder whether you qualify for compensation, you might think about calling a South Florida personal injury attorney. Many people, though, do not have a lot of experience working with injury lawyers and wonder what the experience will be like.


The legal team at Flaxman Law Group understands. Our family-based law team works closely with clients who have been injured and who don’t know what to do next. That’s why we work hard to take the mystery out of the process. Our compassionate team and plain-language explanations help you understand your situation and we make it a point to keep you updated about your case. If you’re injured, contact Flaxman Law Group for a consultation with an accident attorney and we’d be happy to explain what working with us might be like.

What To Expect

When you’re injured and decide you might want to work with a South Florida personal injury attorney, it’s best to contact an attorney right away. Even if you’re not quite sure you want to work with an attorney, an initial consultation is usually free and comes with no obligation so you can find out whether you even want to work with an attorney. Contacting a lawyer soon after your injury also helps protect your right to compensation.

During your initial consultation, you may meet in person, on the phone, or in video conference with an attorney. You and the lawyer will discuss what happened, your injuries, any additional losses you’ve suffered (such as property damage), and any medical treatment you’ve received.

The attorney can then explain whether you have a case and any legal options you might have (such as filing a lawsuit or negotiating with an insurance carrier). The lawyer will also explain how they might approach your case and why. You’ll get a chance to ask questions, so you understand everything.

Once you walk away from your consultation, you’ll have a choice to make: whether to work with the attorney or not.

If you decide to work with an attorney, the attorney will take care of many of the details for you. The attorney and their team will investigate what caused your injuries, will gather documentation and evidence, and will start building a case. This could include gathering eyewitness statements, reviewing medical records, working with investigators or accident reconstruction experts, and more.

As part of the process, your lawyer will be the one to handle all communication with the insurance companies involved. You won’t talk to insurers. Instead, your attorney will negotiate and seek a settlement.

If you need to file a lawsuit because you can’t reach a settlement, your lawyer will take care of filing all the correct paperwork and preparing your case for the courts.

Throughout this process, your attorney should keep you updated about the process. Your legal team may also contact you to get statements or more information so they can build the best possible case for you. Your attorney will also let you know about any important milestones in your case—such as any settlement offers you’ve received or the moment you win your case.

As you consider working with an attorney, you may be concerned about the costs. The good news is that many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that most upfront costs are waived until the attorney wins your case or reaches a settlement. Once that happens, your attorney will pay themselves a percentage (that you’ve agreed to) of the final award or settlement. The rest of the settlement of award is yours to keep.

Contingency fee arrangements make it easy for you to seek financial recovery when you have a case, because you don’t have to pay a lot up front. They also motivate attorneys to work hard on your behalf.

How Is Working with Flaxman Law Group Different?

Flaxman Law Group is a boutique, family-focused law firm with Florida law offices in Miami, Hollywood, and Homestead. We stand out for our results: we’ve recovered over $100 million for our clients. One reason we’re able to get these results is because our team isn’t afraid to go after larger defendants. We don’t take a lowball settlement offer just because it’s easier. We do what’s best for you and your case.

Another reason we’re able to get the results we get is because we know the insurance industry inside out. Charles Flaxman, the principal at our firm, worked in the insurance industry for ten years before dedicating his life to the law. And Steven Flaxman represented insurance companies in court before deciding to focus on helping injured plaintiffs. Our father-son attorney team have seen firsthand the tactics insurance companies use to try to minimize your claim and this gives them the knowledge and motivation to fight back for you.

What really sets us apart, though, is our approach to your case. We understand that you’re not looking for a lawyer. You’re looking for a solution to a very challenging problem. We make sure we’re part of the solution with bilingual service and compassion. When you work with us, we take care of all the details, like helping you get a rental car. Our attorneys also give you their personal cell phone number, so you can always stay in touch. It’s one way we’re able to deliver big law firm results with the attention and care you’d expect from a smaller team.

So if you’re injured, call Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys. Let’s explore how we may be able to work together.

Charlie is a very skilled attorney that advocates hard for his clients. But the best part is he is an all around great guy. He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
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
I found Mr. Flaxman to be an excellent attorney for my personal injury case. This is actually the second time I have used him and he really represented my interests. He explained everything thoroughly and he was very available for my questions. Carol
