Estero Personal Injury Lawyer
A sudden personal injury, like a car crash or fall injury, instantly turns life upside down. Other injuries, like hearing loss or repetitive stress, gradually turn life upside down. In both cases, the injury is just the beginning of a seemingly endless downward spiral. Constant medical attention costs so much money that it creates financial strain which worsens the physical pain. In these situations, insurance companies often offer false hope, in the form of a low-ball settlement proposal.
In contrast, the compassionate Estero personal injury lawyer at Cardinal Law offers true hope for the future. This hope is a process that begins with a thorough case evaluation, during which we carefully explain your legal options. We also meet immediate needs. We connect accident victims with medical professionals who know how to properly diagnose and treat personal injuries. Then, when the case goes to court, we tirelessly advocate for you.
Why Do You Need an Estero Personal Injury Lawyer?
An attorney evens the odds. Usually within a few hours of a personal injury, an insurance company hires a team of legal professionals to protect its interests. If victims try to settle their own cases, it’s like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Estero High School Wildcats. It’s not a fair fight.
An Estero personal injury lawyer knows the law and knows how to make it work for people. Furthermore, attorneys are dedicated to upholding the legal and financial rights of victims. As a result, the average attorney-negotiated injury settlement is about three times higher than the average non-attorney-negotiated settlement.
This settlement usually includes compensation for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages might be available as well, in some extreme cases.
Furthermore, broader principles are at stake in a personal injury matter. These cases aren’t simply about money.
At Cardinal Law, we believe that all people should acknowledge their mistakes and accept responsibility for them. If you have an issue with how your case is handled, we don’t sit on our hands or point fingers. We make it right.
Likewise, tortfeasors (negligent actors) should accept financial responsibility for the injuries they negligently cause. You break it, you buy it.
Choosing the Right Attorney
Florida has more lawyers per person than almost any other state in the Union. Several lawyers’ offices are probably within walking distance of your home or workplace. Almost any lawyer could settle a simple injury claim.
However, there’s no such thing as a “simple” claim. For example, Florida is a comparative fault state. If the victim was partially responsible for an injury, the court could slash the amount of compensation in the case.
So, to obtain maximum compensation for your serious injuries, as you look for a lawyer in Lee County, focus on the following qualities:
- Experience: Recent law school graduates know how to think like lawyers. Experienced attorneys know how to act like lawyers. In addition to practice experience, your lawyer should have a successful track record.
- Dedication: We mentioned dedication above. This quality is the fuel that keeps a lawyer going until the case concludes. Undedicated lawyers who handle a few injury matters on the side often look for a quick settlement and an easy way out.
- Accessibility: Your lawyer should be your lawyer. Your lawyer should never over-delegate work to new associates or non-lawyer paralegals. Furthermore, your lawyer should be physically accessible. Mobility is a real issue for many recovering personal injury victims.
At Cardinal Law, our Estero personal injury lawyer checks all these boxes. Our experienced, attorney-lead team is dedicated to meeting the legal and other needs of accident victims just like you.
