Have you or your loved one suffered an injury in the state of Florida? Have you recently been in a motor vehicle accident, and wonder how it works to be awarded a possible settlement? We know victims are often anxious about what settlement they can receive and when they can receive it.

Did you know that very few cases in personal injury go to trial? Almost 90% of all cases settle out of court or mediate. Did you know that out of court settlements save time and money.

No matter whether you plan to settle or go to court, hiring a personal injury lawyer in Miami is a must.  Hiring a lawyer is the best way to ensure victims are receiving the right compensation for their injuries.  This compensation can include medical bills and loss of income for pain and suffering.

How do you determine a settlement value?

This varies case by case.  A claim can determine settlement value based on what medical bills and injuries may cost.  When determining the value of a settlement, top of mind is future expenses due to injury.  

Another factor is the insurance company involved with the case.  Some insurance companies prefer to settle quickly while others like to drag it out.  It is important that a personal injury lawyer oversee this negotiation.

Sometimes a case can be purely subjective.  Having an expert by your side is key for a good settlement.  

If the case remains unresolved after a certain amount of time, the case must go to mediation in Florida. Mediation is usually successful in most Florida cases when the parties are open to it.

The average settlement in Florida is usually between $10,000 and $60,000. 

How do I know if I have a strong case to settle?

Neufeld Law can help you determine if you have a strong personal injury case.  We offer a discovery process, where we learn more about your case and weigh the evidence. Our legal team will offer several options that would work best with your case.

How do I get paid for my personal injury settlement?

Normally, a check will be sent by the insurance company directly to your personal injury lawyer.  Sometimes it can take from four to six weeks to receive your settlement from the insurance company.  There is a process that must get followed according to the state of Florida. Usually the amount you receive is minus your legal fees and other processing fees.

If you are pursuing legal action post-accident, it will be beneficial to know how personal injury settlements are paid in Florida.  Understanding the process could give you an idea of what your settlement may look like.  Remember, each settlement is different. 

No one can accurately predict what your settlement will be.
