St Petersburg Accident Attorneys
Personal Injury and Work accident attorneys In St. Petersburg, Florida
Through no fault of their own, people get into auto accidents every day. Tenants may be injured walking down the path to their apartment, or shoppers may slip and fall on a store's premises. A car could ignore the traffic light and hit a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street. All of these situations occur fast and unexpectedly, but they are typically caused by a person or entity acting recklessly or negligently.
Personal Injury accidents can cause you and your loved ones turmoil, and we understand the financial hardship one endures. This is why you need Advocates USA, your trusted personal injury and workers’ compensation attorneys in Saint Petersburg, in your corner, to help fight for the justice you deserve. We are the attorneys for the people.
The steps of a Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Case
If you have been injured in an accident from a motor vehicle, dog bite, slip and fall, workplace accident, construction accident, or any other workplace or personal injury accident in Saint Petersburg, seek medical attention first and then pursue the steps it takes to begin your personal injury claim.
Collection And Investigation
Facts are the most pertinent aspect of any case, and when you are injured due to another's negligent actions, there is always relevant evidence. The evidence we will be looking for is:
- accident photos from roadways, dashcam video, or video from mobile devices.
- Testimonials from witnesses
- Medical reports
- Police reports
- Medical expert testimonials and opinions of estimated recovery time
Gathering more evidence will make your case more robust and can help obtain a fair settlement amount. Contact our personal injury attorneys in Saint Petersburg to help build your case. The process looks like this:
Filing a Complaint: The official personal injury lawsuit begins when your attorney files an official complaint. The complaint will outline who you claim is guilty of causing the accident and the compensation damages your legal team feels are reasonable based upon your injuries.
Discovery: Once the formal complaint has been filed, your attorney and the opposing counsel will share evidence. This allows the other party's insurance company to conduct its investigation. Advocates USA capitalizes on this opportunity to ensure they are building the most robust case possible.
Typically, cases will end after evidence has been shared because the opposing side's attorney will realize it is unlikely for them to win at trial. Settling will eliminate having to pay lawyer fees for a lengthy court process. Your legal counsel and the insurance company will negotiate to come up with a fair settlement.
Settlement and Negotiations: Typically, most cases will end at this stage when the defendant's insurance company realizes they won't win in the courtroom and it is more affordable to settle rather than going to court, paying lawyer fees and typically a higher payout. As your personal injury and workers’ compensation attorneys in Saint Petersburg, our priority and mission is to obtain a fair recovery for your injuries. We will do this by negotiating with the opposing counsel or insurance company.
Going to Trial: If the opposing insurance company refuses to settle on a reasonable figure, your legal team in Saint Petersburg will proceed with your lawsuit. This is where it is essential to hire aggressive attorneys who are not afraid of the courtroom. Our attorneys at Advocates USA will not back down and will submit a play-by-play outlining how your accident occurred and how negligence led to your accident. With our proven track record, we have won millions of dollars for our clients who were injured at the workplace or in personal injury accidents.
