Coral Springs Personal Injury Attorney
Insurance companies may be quick to offer a cash settlement to make a personal injury claim go away. While their offer may look attractive and seem to meet your immediate needs, they will almost always offer far less than your claim is actually worth, hoping you’ll take the check before talking to a lawyer. Once you’ve accepted their check, you’ve given up your right to sue or make any claim against them, even if you later realize your costs and injuries are far greater than you at first suspected.
Coral Springs personal injury attorney Barry S. Mittelberg is an experienced courtroom litigator who has amassed a significant record of results on behalf of his clients. Hiring Barry Mittelberg for your personal injury case doesn’t mean you’ll have to go to court, though. Most personal injury cases settle without having to file a lawsuit or go to trial. However, when insurance companies are facing an injury victim represented by a seasoned litigator with a proven record in the courtroom, they are much more likely to settle for a fair amount rather than risk having the case brought to a jury by an experienced and successful trial lawyer.

Mittelberg before talking to the insurance company, and potentially everything to lose if you don’t.

What can I recover in a personal injury case?
When another party is liable to you, they must pay you “damages” to compensate you for the harm done to you by their negligence. Common damages awarded in personal injury cases include:
- Medical expenses, including doctor and hospital bills, medications, medical equipment, rehabilitation and ongoing or future care
- Lost wages, including a reduction in future income earning capacity due to partial or total disability, whether temporary or permanent
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish or emotional distress
- Loss of quality of life or loss of enjoyment in life due to a debilitating injury, scarring or disfigurement
- Punitive damages in appropriate cases
How does a personal injury lawyer help me with my case?
In order to fully recover for the harm done to you, you’ll need to prove that the responsible party owed a duty to you and breached that duty through the party’s negligence. You’ll also need to prove that this negligence was the actual and legal cause of your injury, and you’ll need to be able to prove the nature and extent of your injuries. A thorough understanding of Florida personal injury law is necessary to accomplish these tasks. You’ll also want a lawyer with significant trial and litigation skills who can deliver a persuasive case to a judge, jury or insurance claims adjustor.
When the insurance companies don’t want to pay what they owe, they’ll downplay the serious nature of your injury or claim it was caused in some other way such as a preexisting condition. They’ll also try to claim that your own negligence caused the injury. Under Florida’s comparative fault laws, any percentage of fault attached to you results in a dollar-for-dollar reduction in any compensation you recover. At the Law Offices of Barry S. Mittelberg, we work hard to build a strong case proving the defendant’s liability while keeping you from being unfairly blamed for contributing to the accident.
