Having a lawyer is particularly important if you have been injured in an accident. Florida law has certain requirements that must be met in order for you to make a claim for all your personal injury damages due to an automobile accident. A lawyer can help you to meet these requirements.It is important to get treatment for your injuries and to have all of the information about your injuries properly documented by the doctor so that it can be used to help prove your claim, possibly in a court of law. An experienced personal injury accident lawyer can help you make sure your injuries and treatment are properly documented.
A lawyer should also be contacted if there is a debate over who is at fault for the accident. Even with witnesses and a police report saying one party is at fault, there can still be debate over whether this is the case.

An insurance agent likely has a hidden and different agenda that do not protect you. Insurance companies say that want to protect you, but is that what they are truly interested in protecting?
