What Circumstances Warrant Filing a Personal Injury Claim?
Pay Nothing Unless We Win
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do I have to pay for a personal injury attorney?
Spetsas Buist PLLC handles our cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay anything unless we recover money for you. In other words, we do not get paid unless the case settles or we win your case.
When should I get a personal injury attorney?
As soon as possible. Depending on your particular situation, the statute of limitations in Florida is typically between 2 and 4 years. However, you should get an attorney involved early in the process to protect your rights; the earlier the better. It’s best to have a personal injury attorney before you give any statements to the insurance adjuster.
What if I can’t pay my medical bills?
The medical bills that result from a personal injury can be overwhelming. However, you may not be completely responsible for all of your medical costs if you were injured as a result of another person’s actions. That person — the person who negligently or intentionally or recklessly harmed you — could be held legally and financially accountable for the bills you incurred as a result of the harm you suffered.
What is a personal injury claim?
If you are injured by the actions of another person, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to hold that person accountable for the injuries caused. In the same way, if you’re injured by the actions of a company or that company’s agent, you can file a lawsuit against the company and hold that company accountable for the injuries it caused.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
It depends. Each case is unique, and so it’s nearly impossible to predict how long your case will take. The time it takes to resolve a personal injury lawsuit varies depending on the facts of the case and the unique case distinctions. For example, your case may require the testimony of several witnesses, or it may require the collection of a lot of evidence. Also, there may be delays in the proceedings or other things we can’t control, which may further delay the case. A good way to get an estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case is to talk to an attorney at Spetsas Buist PLLC about the specific facts of your case.
