Car Accident Settlement Lawyer in Gainesville
Making Sure You’re Treated Fairly
If you have been injured by someone else’s reckless or careless driving, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. These damages can either come through a jury award, if you take the case to trial, or through a settlement. Settling a case means agreeing to take a certain amount of money in exchange for your right to sue.
In most cases, the insurance company will offer you a settlement for your motor vehicle accident case. However, it is very important that you consult an attorney to make sure that the settlement offer is fair and takes into account the severity of your injuries and your future medical needs.
The Law Offices of Jorge Luis Colón, P.A., is here to help you make sure you get the full amount you may deserve. With offices in Gainesville and Ocala, we counsel injury victims throughout Florida.
The Advantages of Settling a Case
By settling a case, you can avoid the lengthy trial process and usually get your money quicker. You can also settle for an amount you find acceptable rather than leaving the amount up to a jury. In addition, you have more control over the payment structure. You may opt for a lump-sum payment, payments made over a certain period of time or an annuity that you receive at a certain age.
When evaluating a settlement offer, our law firm works with medical experts, vocational rehab specialists and other professionals to determine the potential costs of future surgeries, physical therapy, prescription pain medications, etc. We work hard to get you the full amount of money you will need to cover your future needs.
