If injured in an accident it’s crucial to contact a car accident law firm, not one that takes any type of case says Boca Raton car accident lawyer Joe Osborne.
No matter what line of work you do your industry is probably more specialized than it’s ever been. More people are finding specialties in order to gain expertise in an area to better help their customers and clients. That’s certainly true in the legal profession according to Boca Raton car accident lawyer Joe Osborne.
If you need questions answered or seek representation from an attorney for your car accident case, look for somebody who’s experienced in this area of law, someone who focuses on personal injury cases. Just as in any other line of work, the more experience an attorney has the better equipped he or she is to help others. Osborne & Francis handles personal injury and car accident cases day in and day out and they can help you with yours.
In order to be successful with your South Florida car accident case a car accident attorney needs to prove a couple of things.
- Somebody else did something wrong. In a vehicle accident case it must be shown that the person who hit you is the person at fault or responsible for causing the collision. That driver was negligent because he or she did or didn’t do something that the driver had a legal obligation to do or refrain from doing. By failing to live up to that obligation that driver did something wrong.
- As a result of the other driver’s mistake you sustained some kind of injury. This is shown through your medical care and treatment and the records of your healthcare providers. It can also be shown through expert medical testimony.
It all starts by looking at those medical records. Doctors generally do a good job of documenting what accident victims go through. It is also important to look to see what your future prognosis is and whether there will be any permanent limitations or disabilities. Then it’s about demonstrating and proving in the court of law that your injuries are caused solely from your car accident.
The plaintiff has the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that it’s more likely than not the other driver’s negligence caused your injuries and you should be awarded damages. Almost all personal injury cases settle. “We negotiate with insurance companies and their lawyers to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. If they aren’t being reasonable we go to court, says Osborne.
