frequently asked questions ​

 Quite often, insurance companies give lowball offers to avoid paying out the full amount of compensation the injured person is owed. By working with an attorney, you can protect your rights under Florida law and obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled. Skilled personal injury attorneys can fight back against insurance companies and negotiate effectively to ensure that you do not accept an offer that’s less than what you deserve.

Most trial lawyers are willing to handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that the lawyer will not charge you a fee for his/her time unless there is a recovery. If a recovery is made, then the attorney’s fee is based on an agreed percentage of the gross amount recovered. The lawyers at The Berman Law Group charge contingency fees in accordance with the Florida Supreme Court guidelines, typically 33-1/3% in a case that is settled before the need for a lawsuit arises, and 40% when a lawsuit becomes necessary and is contested. The contingent attorney’s fee does not include the costs of pursuing a claim, which may range from just a few hundred dollars to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. These costs are payable separately and not as a part of the contingent fee. Although many law firms may require you to pay these costs in advance, at The Berman Law Group we understand that the consequences of an injury make it difficult, if not impossible, for our clients to advance the costs of a case. In most cases, we pay the costs, and simply ask to be reimbursed at the conclusion of a case when your recovery is received.

 Typically, you will not have to provide any up-front payments. The majority of cases we handle are on a contingency basis, which means you owe us nothing unless we recover compensation for you. Only in certain circumstances will we provide representation on an hourly basis.

It can be quite expensive to pursue a personal injury claim effectively, so we understand your hesitations about the costs. At The Berman Law Group, we are able to pay the out-of-pocket costs needed to build a strong case and prepare for trial. Out-of-pocket expenses will be returned to us from your award if we recover damages for you.

It’s impossible to say because every case is valued differently. Before we can determine the value of any claim, we must carefully assess the circumstances and investigate the details of the accident. Be wary of any firm that promises to accurately value your claim before conducting an investigation.

Most injury claims never make it to trial and are settled before you even need to file a lawsuit. Additionally, the decision to file a lawsuit is entirely your own. At The Berman Law Group, we fight hard to reach a favorable settlement to help our clients avoid the stress and expense of going to trial.
