Two Big Mistakes You are Making by Not Using a Contingency Fee Agreement


Many people think that they can save money by not hiring a lawyer. They think they can run their personal injury claim like a business, and like a business, they think they can increase their personal injury settlement by cutting their costs, which includes the lawyer’s fee. By not hiring an attorney, they believe that they can increase the settlement amount for themselves. But, are they right? Here are two of biggest mistakes they are making:

1. Settlement Offers are Limited by Jury Verdicts.

First, if you have been following our legal blog, (see our previous blog post, Who Your Lawyer Is Matters More than You Think, and Here’s Why…) then you already know that the insurance company is not going to offer you more money to settle your personal injury claim than you could get a jury to award you at trial. After all, why would the insurance company pay you more than you could get at trial?

Unless the insurance company is operating out of the generosity of their gigantic corporate hearts, then they are only going to pay you the amount of money that you can force them to pay you, and not a dime more. You must prove your injuries, your lost wages, your pain and suffering, and you must prove them all under the laws of Florida. While you may be feeling good enough for People’s Court, are you good enough for the Circuit Court?

Unfortunately, if you don’t know the rules of discovery, the rules of evidence, and the local courtroom rules, then you are at a great disadvantage.

2. A Contingency Fee is better than doing the work yourself.
