If you or someone close to you is injured or killed because of unsafe conditions on someone else's Florida property, you will want the most qualified Florida premises liability attorney you can find. Begin your attorney search as quickly as possible. Every state has a statute of limitations, and if you don't file your suit within the required time, you lose all your claims. But even if significant time has passed, consult an experienced Florida premises liability lawyer before concluding that it is too late to file a lawsuit.
Hiring an Expert Negotiator
There are several other preliminary issues an attorney can resolve for you, such as where to file a lawsuit (jurisdictions aren't all the same), who to name as defendants, and how to draft the pleadings to seek the correct damages. These steps require substantial legal expertise.
After that, one of the most important aspects of your case your attorney will handle is negotiating your settlement. A good lawyer will almost certainly be able to negotiate a larger settlement than you could get for yourself, no matter how good a negotiator you are. Your attorney's work preparing your case is a large part of settlement negotiation. If they can show that they will be able to present your case effectively to a jury, the opposition has more incentive to avoid a trial. Only an experienced trial attorney can prepare and demonstrate your ability to present an effective case.
Expert Trial Preparation
Your attorney will perform many necessary services on your behalf: making telephone calls, writing letters, filing pleadings, conducting legal research, and gathering evidence. They will also screen you from the party you are suing and insurance companies.
Only an experienced Florida premises liability attorney will know the best strategy for presenting you case. They will also know the most qualified expert witnesses to provide important testimony in your case. An expert witness can make or break a case.
Trial presentation can involve sophisticated tools and media to convey information. If necessary, your Florida premises liability lawyer will use the experts to prepare exhibits such as videos, animation, computer graphics, and scale models to communicate your case to the jury. Ultimately, your Florida premises liability attorney will have the experience and resources to outlast any stalling or delays by defense counsel. An experienced attorney is not intimidated or overwhelmed by large defense firms or corporate legal departments.
