When searching for a personal injury lawyer to represent your injury claim there are several qualities that you should consider.
Law Firm Reputation | Experience
When seeking legal representation it is important to search a Firm’s credentials and credibility; and determine their specialization in the particular area of legal need you are seeking. Whether one year or 50, you can find out how long an attorney has been admitted to practice law in the state of Florida, and see what particular areas of law they have practiced in throughout their career.
Attorney, Michael C. Blickensderfer is licensed to practice law in Florida, New York, and New Jersey, being admitted in New York and New Jersey in 1986 and Florida in 1987. Mr. Blickensderfer has been serving the legal profession for over 25 years and currently runs a Christian-based law practice in Tampa, Florida.
Medical Treatment | Insurance Protection | Coverage
Personal injury lawyers are able to assist you in dealing with insurance companies following an accident. Many times an insurance company will try to contact an injured party to settle their injury claim quickly, for a nominal amount, and without the protection of their attorney. In most cases the severity of damages sustained in an accident are not easily determined, and an injured party may suffer soft tissue or latent injuries that do not arise until much later.
Seeking a personal injury lawyer to assist you in your accident claim will protect your legal rights to receive compensation for medical bills, loss wages, and pain and suffering that you are entitled to receive through your insurance carrier.
A competent personal injury attorney helps to negotiate your claim against the at-fault driver, and will litigate the case if necessary. Additionally, an attorney will continue to negotiate with medical facilities to reduce the cost of remaining medical bills; and attempt to ensure optimal recovery and compensation for you and your loved ones.
In the event an insurance company contacts you regarding your injury claim, do not offer any recorded statements without first consulting with an attorney.
