FloridaPersonal Injury Lawyers in Florida

When a person is injured because of the negligence of another, a lawsuit for damages is often categorized as a "personal injury" case.


The job description of a personal injury attorney in Florida, includes investigating the case to calculate the damages, making a demand for a settlement, and initiating a personal injury lawsuit.


Civil trial lawyers often take cases on a contingency basis instead of requiring the injured person to pay the attorney fees to litigate the personal injury case in Florida.


To find the best personal injury attorney, consider the attorney's focus on your particular type of case, jury trial experience, as well as the attorney's involvement in the legal community.
