Let justice be done, though the heavens fall.

If you have been involved in an accident or been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to damages, including lost wages, past and future medical expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, and other out of pocket expenses associated with treatment for your injuries. Every case is different, and figuring out if someone is responsible for your physical or emotional suffering and if you are entitled to compensation can seem difficult. A lawyer who is an expert in personal injury law in Florida can be a good source of information for you, as well as a strong advocate.
At Lancaster & Eure, we have experience in a wide variety of personal injury cases, including dog bites, slip and falls, auto accidents, and much more, and can help you file and prepare a solid personal injury case in Florida. First, we will confirm you should pursue a personal injury case by considering all relevant variables, such as the degree to which the other person(s) is responsible for your mental or physical injury and the amount of time that has passed since the injury occurred. Many injured people do not realize they do not have to be totally blameless for their injuries in order to qualify for personal injury compensation or that, due to the statute of limitations, they need to file their lawsuit within a certain time period following an accident or injury to be eligible for compensation. Next, we will help you understand how compensation for injuries is awarded (through a settlement agreement or through a judgment as a result of a trial; or paid as a lump sum or as a structured settlement in which the payments are made over a period of time), and guide you through the process of filing a personal injury claim. We will utilize medical evaluations, professional investigations and evaluations by defective product analysts, as well as economic loss analysts, to make sure you get the maximum possible recovery.
Most insurance companies will discourage you from seeking professional legal help for personal injury claims because it usually costs them money, and insurance companies have trained adjusters and lawyers whose jobs are to settle your case for the least amount of money possible. Therefore, having knowledgeable and professional attorneys on your side is of the utmost importance. The experienced trial attorneys of Lancaster & Eure will aggressively pursue your case and fight for the maximum possible recovery, whether through a settlement agreement or litigation.
