How much does an injury attorney near me charge?

In Plantation and elsewhere in Florida, civil injury and accident cases usually are taken on 'contingency,' meaning that you won't pay a thing until and unless your attorney procures a settlement on your behalf or wins at trial.

When should I contact an accident attorney?

You should contact an accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident. Do not talk about the incident or sign anything until you consult with counsel. Decisions you make early on could drastically impact a future lawsuit.

How much is my injury case worth?

Each injury case is unique, and the circumstances surrounding it will ultimately answer this question. Your initial consultation with a Plantation personal injury lawyer could give you a ballpark.
