Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Palm Bay Personal Injury Lawyer

Why should I hire an attorney?

Any person attempting to settle a claim with an insurance company directly is at a huge disadvantage. The insurance company has extensive experience in dealing with injured people and knows exactly how to calculate the minimum amount they can offer in order to make a quick settlement. When you retain a Palm Bay personal injury lawyer, our goal is to maximize your potential settlement based on your injuries and losses, not on some insurance company's bottom line. You need someone working for you during this trying time that can ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

How long will my claim take to resolve?

Every personal injury case is unique, depending on the severity of the accident and injuries. It is to be expected that a case can take several months and sometimes even years to resolve if it is necessary to litigate in order to obtain the compensation you deserve.

The amount of time between the injury and ultimate resolution of a claim depends on the facts and circumstances of each claim. The claims process can take a few months to many years. There is no way to evaluate the time involved without a detailed evaluation of all the facts and circumstances. However, it is safe to state that the claimant should always be patient, and should not expect a quick resolution.

If I'm injured due to someone else's fault but have no medical insurance, how do I pay my medical bills?

Our dedicated attorneys at Layman Law Firm will work closely with you to find the right insurance options for your situation. However, Florida law does require each person carry PIP insurance, which should cover 80% of your reasonable and necessary medical expenses up to a limit of $10,000.

What if the other driver was at fault but their insurance company is denying my claim?

That is the time when it is essential to have a skilled personal injury lawyer working for you. Our firm is well versed in investigating the facts of your accident in order to determine who is liable for your injuries and pursuing that party for compensation.
