What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

I will be your partner through the legal process.

Accidents happen; anyone can tell you that. But not everyone understands how difficult sorting everything out afterward can be. That is why attorney Fuchs is a personal injury lawyer. He helps victims fight for their rights in court after an accident causes them serious injuries.

Explain the Law and Process

The law is pretty complicated, and more often than not, legislators write it in language that’s hard to understand. Think of a personal injury lawyer as your tutor and guide. Attorney Fuchs will explain Florida’s personal injury laws and car accident laws. He’ll also explain the realities of the situation. For example, Florida law might give you the right to sue. But realistically, you’ll win compensation through an insurance claim. Though Attorney Fuchs believes in being trial-ready, he’ll focus on negotiating you a full and fair insurance settlement first.

Investigate the Accident

Most people don’t know everything about the accident right away. What caused it? Who caused it? That’s what Attorney Fuchs finds out. You don’t have to take an insurance company’s word for it; you shouldn’t. You are better off hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer to investigate the accident independently and thoroughly.

Identify Who Is At Fault and Liable

A successful claim often comes down to targeting the right person or business. You have to figure out who is liable – and it might not be who you think. For example, the other vehicle driver might not be to blame, or even if they are, they might not be the one liable for compensating you. Some accident claims are more complicated than others, which is why Attorney Fuchs is here to help.

Build a Strong Case

Not only is he there to answer your questions, but also to collaborate with you to build the best legal strategy to win your case. He won’t simply take over your case and call you when it’s over. You’re a full participant, helping him accumulate evidence of fault and your injuries. Some cases might need medical documentation to show your physical damages from the accident, while other times, he’ll look for ways to prove you weren’t at fault.

Last but not least, a personal injury lawyer offers an objective outlook on your case, unhampered by your strong emotions in the wake of an accident. This impartiality strengthens your chances of putting forward a watertight case.

Understanding Negligence

Attorney Fuchs will prove who is at fault and get you what you deserve.

Most personal injury and wrongful death cases are based on negligence. In your case, you’ll claim the other party was negligent. That means there was a standard of behavior they should follow. They didn’t behave like they should, which caused the accident and your injuries. Because you bring the claim, it’s up to you to prove negligence. You’ll never evidence and a convincing argument, which is why it helps to hire a skilled lawyer.

Pure Comparative Negligence

Florida has a law known as pure comparative negligence. It means when two or more people contribute to an accident, an insurer or court assigns each a percentage of fault. If you were partly to blame for the accident, you’d be assigned a percentage. You can receive compensation, but your percentage of fault will reduce it.

Florida’s No-Fault Insurance System

When it comes to auto accidents, Florida works differently than most other states. Florida is a no-fault insurance state. That means after your typical car crash, you’ll first use your Personal Injury Protection insurance to recover compensation.

But you can pursue a third-party insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit if you’re seriously injured and your damages exceed your PIP insurance. Talk with Attorney Fuchs about when you can sue after a car accident.
