If you live in Florida and have suffered an injury as the result of an accident or negligence, there are a number of law firms that specialize in personal injury claims. Most personal injury lawyers handle tort law cases such as work-related injuries, slips and falls, automobile and defective products, just to name a few. The vast majority of lawyers who take on personal injury claims prefer to settle than allowing a case to linger on for months and sometimes years.
Florida personal injury lawyers must abide by a professional code of ethics to ensure their client’s best representation. Although laws vary state by state, all lawyers should evaluate a case and work the the client’s best interest. Money is always a factor when a law firm takes on a personal injury claim. Usually a firm won’t take on a case unless they have a reasonable assumption that they will receive a substantial settlement in court or if the case is settled.
