Why you should hire Stillman Injury Law

The Top 10 reasons why hiring Stillman Injury Law instead of attempting to settle a case on your own!

1. Expertise in Legal Procedures: Our Personal injury lawyers have a deep understanding of the legal process, including filing lawsuits, navigating court protocols, understanding statute of limitations, and handling complex paperwork. This expertise can significantly influence the outcome of your case.

2. Higher Settlements: Statistics have shown that individuals who hire a lawyer typically receive higher settlements than those who settle cases on their own. Lawyers are skilled in negotiating with insurance companies and can advocate for a fair settlement that fully compensates for your injuries and losses. Never ever take the offer from the insurance company on your own or without consulting an attorney. When you take their money, you sign a waiver that does not let you sue them. That is why they are so eager to get you to sign and take the money they offered.

3. No Upfront Costs: Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. This arrangement allows access to legal representation without upfront costs, providing a level playing field against insurance companies with significant resources. You see this advertised on TV and billboards constantly and in Florida 99% of personal injury lawyers will take your case on a contingency. “No Fee if We Don’t Win!”

4. Objectivity: After an accident, you might be dealing with emotional turmoil, pain, and frustration, which can cloud your judgment. A personal injury lawyer can provide objective advice on your case, helping you to make informed decisions without the influence of emotions. Because they see these cases every day a personal injury lawyer can keep cool under pressure and is well versed in dealing with the insurance companies.

5. Investigation and Evidence: Lawyers have the resources and know-how to thoroughly investigate your claim. They can gather crucial evidence, such as medical records, police reports, surveillance cameras and witness statements, to build a strong case on your behalf. They will hire an accident reconstruction expert if a case is big enough to warrant it. Evidence is the key, so make sure if you are involved in an accident you take plenty of pictures of the scene and your injuries.

6. Litigation Experience: If your case goes to trial, having an experienced litigator by your side can be invaluable. Personal injury lawyers have experience with jury trials and know how to present your case effectively to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome. The defense will always try to make you look bad in a trial, but an experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to fight them off and prove your case.

7. Saves Time and Stress: Handling a personal injury claim can be time-consuming and stressful. By hiring a lawyer, you can delegate these tasks to a professional who can handle all aspects of your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery. The personal injury lawyers at Stillman Injury Law are experts in handling the cases and have a staff to take care of all the things that could occur during the claim process. Ultimately remember that we work for you and our office is here to help you get the best results possible.

8. Knowledge of Medical Providers: Personal injury lawyers often have relationships with medical providers who may agree to provide medical care in anticipation of a settlement or judgment. This can be crucial if you need medical treatment but don't have the insurance or means to pay upfront. The advantage of using medical providers recommended by the personal injury lawyer is that they are flexible and will negotiate their bills at the time of settlement. They will also be willing to work with the balances or wait to get paid when the case settles instead of reporting any unpaid bills to a collection agency and ruining your credit like most hospitals or big corporations.

9. Alternative Dispute Resolution: Lawyers are skilled in alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration, which can be faster, less costly, and less confrontational than going to trial. In some cases, it is not work going to trial or if you choose to go to trial you are risking losing and not getting any compensation for your injuries at all. Mr. Stillman can advise on whether these options are suitable for your case. The majority of the time lawyers will try to settle cases out of court because it is quicker and more efficient, but when the insurance company does not cooperate then mediation, arbitration or even trial can be an option.

10. Peace of Mind: Finally, having a personal injury lawyer can provide peace of mind during a difficult time. Knowing that a skilled professional is advocating for your best interests can alleviate stress and help you focus on your recovery. Let us handle your case and leave the worries behind. That is what the personal injury lawyers at Stillman Injury Law get paid to do.

Attempting to settle a personal injury case on your own can be overwhelming, especially when facing large insurance companies. The insurance companies have lawyers on their side and you should too. Hiring a personal injury lawyer can provide you with the expertise, support, and representation needed to navigate the legal system and secure the compensation you deserve. In the following case study we will illustrate the difference of having a personal injury lawyer fighting for you versus not having them at all.
