How Can I Get the Fastest Settlement for Injuries after a Florida Car Accident?

You hope to settle your case quickly and fairly for injuries sustained at the hands of a negligent driver. But by seeking the fastest settlement for injuries suffered in a car crash, you may actually deny yourself a full and fair recovery.

Often a case’s value will increase over time, as the true measure of a case becomes clear. Complete medical prognosis of catastrophic injury cases may take months to unfold after the accident. This may add thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to a fair settlement amount.

Seeking a fast settlement for car accident injuries also plays into the hands of the insurance company – which hopes to settle your claim a quickly and cheaply as they can.

There are also many other factors that can tie up a personal injury settlement, when it is worth the wait for these factors to be legally ironed out.

It is fair to say that to settle a personal injury case quickly is a trade-off for less money. The real issues should be:

  • what type of injuries do you have, and
  • why you should reevaluate your haste before accepting a quick settlement.

Two things to know before taking the fastest settlement for injuries:

Keep in mind two key things:

  1. First, no attorney in the world can determine your personal injury case value in the initial consultation. It takes many weeks or months of exploration and review to uncover all the elements in your case and prove that you deserve higher compensation.

If we can show that your injuries are residual or permanent injuries or you have sustained long-term disability as a result of the accident, the amount of damages you may recovery can increase significantly.

In addition, serious car injury cases involve what is called “maximum medical improvement,” or MMI. This is when the doctor proclaims that the injured plaintiff is as recovered or as well as he or she will ever be.

Until MMI is reached, the attorney cannot know how much the case is worth in terms of their client permanently losing their job, residual impairments, pain and suffering and more.

The key here is, if you can afford to wait, the resulting long-term compensation can be tremendously beneficial.

  1. Second, the injury victim without a good personal injury attorney will almost always be offered less money. Insurance companies hope to settle as many injury claims as possible as quickly and as cheaply as possible. They hope you do not have an accident lawyer.

Conversely, an attorney experienced in Florida auto accident cases will know what is fair for your situation, and will see to it that your best interests are being served.

Factors that affect the length (and outcome) of a personal injury case

The nature of the injury: Knowing the true extent of injuries is key to full and fair compensation. Settling quickly for short money can cost you tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run.

The insurance company’s level of cooperation: The insurer can make negotiations smooth or difficult. In cases involving hefty damages, insurers will thoroughly investigate liability, degree of injury, damages, and possible defenses.

All of this takes time. Some insurers tend to wrongfully delay or deny valid claims.

An experienced personal injury lawyer is prepared for all these possibilities, and knows how to keep the case moving forward properly to protect their client.

The complexity of the case: some car accidents may be straightforward, such as a two-car collision where liability is clear and cooperation exists among all parties. The level of complexity can rise exponentially when any one party or factor involves some degree of complexity, from multi-vehicle accidents or cases in which many parties were at part responsible for the crash.

Make the right decision.

If you have been seriously injured in a Florida car accident and are considering getting the fastest settlement possible, we urge you to call Kramer Law for straightforward, practical advice based on the facts of your case.
