Frequently Asked Questions

What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?

Personal injury lawyers represent individuals and/or families who have suffered injury and loss because of the negligence of another person or entity. They accomplish this by helping their client file all necessary paperwork, gather evidence, and negotiate with the at-fault party to recover a favorable settlement/verdict that compensates them for damages they have sustained. Your personal injury attorney can manage all the details of your case from start to finish so that you can focus on healing instead of engaging in a legal battle.

How Do I Find a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you have been injured due to someone else's negligence, you may need to hire a personal injury lawyer to help you recover compensation for your injuries. Finding the right personal injury lawyer can be a daunting task, but it is essential to your case's success. One of the best ways to find a personal injury lawyer is by asking for referrals from family and friends. You can also contact the local bar association for a referral or research a firm’s reviews. To see what some of our past clients have to say, check out our client testimonials.

What Should I Look for When Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Once you have a list of potential personal injury lawyers, there are several things you should consider when deciding who to hire. One of the most important factors to consider is the lawyer's experience. Look for a lawyer who has experience handling cases similar to yours and has a track record of success. You should also consider the lawyer's communication skills, as you will want a lawyer who is easy to talk to and will keep you informed about your case.

Another factor to consider when hiring a personal injury lawyer is their fee structure. At Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A., we work on a contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid if you win your case. Finally, consider the lawyer's personality and whether you feel comfortable working with them. Personal injury cases can be stressful, and you will want a lawyer who can help you navigate the process with ease.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

Personal injury attorneys in Fort Lauderdale work off of a contingency fee. This means that all fees and expenses for the lawyer’s services will be paid out of the settlement or verdict that they win for their client. Florida contingency fees are usually around 30-33%, but they can be higher or lower depending on what is agreed upon by you and your attorney. If your personal injury lawyer does not win your case, they do not get paid.

Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Most likely no. Only about 5% of all personal injury cases ever go to court. Trials are lengthy and expensive for both sides, so there is an incentive for the at-fault party to settle outside of court. However, many personal injury cases do end up going to trial, so it’s important that you hire an attorney who has trial experience and a proven record in the courtroom. Sometimes, the mere fact that you have an experienced litigator with you is enough to pressure the other side to settle.
