Do I Have A Strong Case?
At the Law Offices of Prosper Shaked we offer free consultations. During your consultation, Prosper Shaked will ask you a series of questions to better understand the circumstances of your potential injury case. During this case evaluation, Mr. Shaked will review the facts and circumstances to determine and advise whether you have a viable case.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
The value of your case will depend on several factors. However, the most significant factors that drive the value of your claim include the severity of your injuries, the type of medical treatment you receive, your medical expenses, and the total amount of past and future lost wages.
Is It Worth Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney?
It is worth hiring a personal injury attorney if you hire one who knows what they are doing. The right attorney will work working towards obtaining the best outcome possible while giving you the freedom to recover without dealing with insurance companies, medical bills, or any stressful paperwork.
Unlike many other attorneys who charge hourly or flat rate fees, personal injury lawyers generally work on a contingency fee basis. Meaning that if you hire a personal injury attorney, you will not be required to pay them anything out of pocket. Our fee is a percentage of the total recovery, which we receive after we successfully obtain a settlement or verdict in your case. A good personal injury attorney will most often recover significantly more than a victim would be able to recover on their own even after the contingency fee is paid from the total recovery.
Have You Handled Cases Like Mine?
We handle some of the most complex and severe personal injury, negligent security, and medical malpractice cases in the State of Florida. However, we are selective of which types of cases we handle because our expertise is limited to the personal injury practice areas that are listed on this website. If your case is unique, please do not hesitate to call for a free consultation so that we may determine if it is a case that we can help you with. If it is not a type of case that we handle, we will try to point you in the right direction.
Do You Ever Take Cases To Court?
Yes, unlike many other personal injury firms around the country we take many of our cases to court. It is sometimes impossible to negotiate a fair settlement directly with the insurance company. In these instances, we discuss all options with our clients and let them decide whether they want to accept the insurance company’s offer or reject the offer and proceed to court where we work to obtain the settlement or verdict they deserve.
Why Choose Us?
There are many large TV advertising law firms across the State of Florida that delegate most of their work to their non-attorney staff. These personal injury firms operate like mills, where each attorney can be responsible for between 250-500 clients! If you retain a large firm like this, there is a good chance that the only work that they do on your case is refer you to a medical provider and send a demand letter to the insurance carrier once you are finished with medical treatment. They will then convince you to accept a settlement offer that may be far less than your case is worth. The value these types of law firms and lawyers add to your claim may not be worth the contingency fee that they are paid once your case is settled. There is a decent chance you would have ended up with a similar amount of money in your pocket had you dealt with the insurance company directly. At the Law Offices of Prosper Shaked, we work hard for our clients and never prioritize quick and easy settlements over maximizing our client’s recovery.
