Our Personal Injury Case Areas of Practice

A Plan for Your Personal Injury Case

Not every case is the same. However, some general things must be done to preserve your rights and help you obtain your maximum monetary compensation. In handling your claim, our St. Petersburg personal injury lawyers may do a few things:

Investigate Your Case

As soon as you retain our service, we get to work investigating your case. This may include talking to witnesses and gathering evidence. An experienced personal injury lawyer will also visit the scene of the incident, speak with friends and family members, gather medical evidence, and consult with experts to ensure we have the complete picture of the event.

Evaluate the Medical Implications

In a personal injury case, the injured person must prove the accident was the cause of their injuries. At first glance, that may sound simple.  However, insurance companies and corporate defendants fight tooth and nail to minimize injuries and push medical bills back toward the victims. They may also try to prove that your injuries were there all along.

Work with Medical Experts

It may be necessary to explain your injuries. Our legal team works with top experts in and around Florida. We will spare no expense to make sure you have the best medical experts on your side.

Damages You May be Entitled to

Our law firm is here to help you get all the reimbursement you legally deserve. In Florida, you are allowed to claim certain types of damages, including:

Medical Expenses

You may be able to recover all medical expenses you incurred due to the injuries from your accident. You are also entitled to any future or anticipated injuries.

Lost Compensation

You may be entitled to compensation if you miss work because of your accident. If you cannot work in the same capacity as before the accident, you may also be entitled to ongoing compensation

Human Damages

Accident and personal injury victims can suffer various human damages. These may be pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of the capacity to enjoy life, and inconvenience. The lawyers from KFB Law can help you understand these damages, so we can work together to help you get proper compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need an attorney? 

An injury from a car accident or a slip and fall can be life-changing. It can leave you with a temporary disability or a permanent one. Medical expenses, on top of lost wages due to recovery, can quickly become overwhelming. 

If you’ve suffered an injury, your primary focus should be on healing, not worrying about how to pay all of these expenses. That’s why hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer is so essential. An attorney can handle the legal side of things and help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Without an attorney to negotiate on your behalf and prove your case’s worth, insurance companies will try to make lowball offers that don’t come close to what you need to cover the damages. 

What should I look for when hiring a personal injury attorney?

Experience. This is the most important thing to look for—many attorneys promote themselves as personal injury lawyers. Yet the practice of personal injury law may only make up a small portion of their work. A firm with a strong team of lawyers with a long history of service to clients and their community is ideal.

Communication. Another important quality to look for is strong communication. It’s well known that lawyers are busy, but that’s no excuse for not returning calls and emails promptly. Communication is a crucial part of a solid client-attorney relationship. Having an attorney that keeps you updated on your case can help you feel more at ease throughout the process.

Client reviews. Finally, you can see what others are saying about the attorney you have in mind by reading reviews.

Who pays for my medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages?

A personal injury claim may include legal damages such as medical costs, lost wages, and stress on the mental health of the accident victim. Claims are often paid for by the bodily injury liability insurance of the party that caused the accident.

The responsible party’s personal injury protection (PIP) or uninsured motorist insurance coverage might also pay for damages, depending on the nature of the accident. If a company is at fault and self-insured, the company may pay the claims directly. 

Will my case go to court?

Most personal injury cases do not go to court right away. Ideally, we want to save our clients the potential stress and time involved in a lawsuit if there is a reasonable chance to negotiate a settlement outside of court. However, your lawyer should have the experience and strength to recommend a lawsuit if that is the best course of action and the skills to represent you through trial.

What if I was partly at fault for my accident?

If you were involved in a vehicle collision or suffered a slip and fall, it’s common to wonder if there were actions you could have taken to avoid the incident. Many accident victims grapple with the notion that they might share some responsibility for their injuries. However, it’s crucial to not jump to conclusions about your own fault in these situations, as prematurely assuming partial responsibility can impact your ability to secure the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
