What Sets Us Apart From Other South Florida Personal Injury Attorneys?

Finding the right attorney to handle your personal injury case can be a confusing and overwhelming process; especially when you are trying to deal with your own physical recovery at the same time! One thing that many of our clients do not realize in the beginning is just how affordable hiring an attorney really is. In addition to only billing clients on a contingency basis (meaning you don't pay us until you get paid), working with the right attorney can ultimately save you time, money, and frustration in the long run. Don't spend your own time and energy trying to navigate the confusing legal system on your own.

Want to know what sets us apart from other South Florida personal injury attorneys and why you should hire us? Keep reading…Unlike many law firms that practice personal injury law, when you bring your case to us you can be confident that it will be handled directly by a trial attorney with years of experience, not a paralegal or secretary like so many other firms. Representation by an experienced Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney from start to finish and the personal approach the Englander Peebles Firm takes with every client is invaluable and something you just won't get at most other firms. All your questions and concerns will be answered quickly and by the attorney working on your case-no waiting days for a response or getting the runaround from secretaries.

The moment you hire us is the moment you can stop worrying and start placing your focus right where it belongs - on getting better.

When you or a loved one is injured in an accident in South Florida, a variety of questions and concerns will likely fill your mind quickly. Here's a look at some of the questions we hear all the time:

  • How could this happen to me?

    Sometimes even the most vigilant individuals can be the victim of a personal injury accident. Being the victim of a drunk driver behind the wheel is a great example of an unpredictable driving situation that is almost impossible to avoid. While looking back at the accident that brought you to our law firm today is an important part of the healing and legal process, our hope is that with our help you will be able to move forward and put this question in your distant past.

  • Did I do something wrong to cause this?

    Even if you are partially responsible for whatever accident you were in, there are still many avenues for you to make a recovery. We will go over all of this during your initial consultation with us and discuss all of the options available to you. Do not make the mistake others make and assume that your role in an accident negates any recovery-that simply is not the case!

  • What about the other person - is he or she responsible for my injuries?

    The answer to this common question depends on the specifics of your personal injury accident. When it is found that someone else (or something else) is responsible for your accident and injuries, they are responsible for making you whole again.

  • What if I miss time from my job?

    Missing important days at work is a very common result of being in a personal injury accident. Whether you missed a couple of days immediately following your accident or you are no longer able to do your job at all, determining the impact your personal injury accident has on your professional life is a major evaluation that we will spend a lot of time discussing to come up with the appropriate number. This important determination is best done by an experienced personal injury attorney. The ultimate goal of this accounting determination is to get a full snapshot of the impact the accident had on your professional life. We know how important a steady paycheck is to you and your family and even a few days without work can be the difference between making ends meet and not.

  • How will I pay my medical bills, treatment costs, and regular expenses?

    We get it-your medical bills are adding up fast. Even just one trip to the emergency room can be a bill you can't afford. Whether you have great insurance or no insurance at all, getting better should be your main concern. Unfortunately, many individuals make the mistake of not getting the necessary care or stopping care too early because they are unable to afford the treatment they need to get better. Getting better and taking care of yourself should be your number one priority. As your attorney, we will work to get a fully accurate snapshot of the medical attention you will need both now and in the future. Even a seemingly minor injury can ultimately turn out to be something that is much more serious. Whiplash is a great example of an injury that you might not realize that you need physical or alternative therapy to overcome. This important financial determination is one that is designed to make sure that you can afford to take care of your needs. Take care of yourself and let Englander Peebles take care of the rest.

  • How long does it take to get my settlement?

    An ever popular question with an always frustrating answer-it depends. Your personal injury case is as unique as you are and while it is extremely important that you get in touch with us as soon as possible for statute of limitations and evidentiary reasons, it is equally important that we have the time to fully evaluate the impact your injuries will have on your future medical needs and professional life, among other things. At Englander Peebles, we know you can't wait too long to get the money to cover your needs. Rest assured that we will be working as quickly as we can to make sure that your case is never unnecessarily delayed on our end. Our frequent status updates are designed with you in mind-to make sure you know exactly where your case is in the overall process and what we are working on to make sure things are moving along as quickly as possible. Still want to make sure things are moving quickly? You can call us anytime!

  • How can I possibly afford an attorney when I can't afford my medical bills?

    This concern is what stops so many individuals from even researching an attorney as an avenue for help. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about the accessibility of attorneys in general, especially when you are in financial need. Working with an attorney can actually save you money, not cost you money! At Englander Peebles, we only take on cases on a contingency fee basis so you won't pay anything out of your pocket until we get you some money to put in there. Our fee structure is fair and transparent and something you are welcome to learn more about during your initial consultation.

South Florida Personal Injury Attorneys

All of the questions listed above are natural and normal concerns when it comes to a personal injury case. Let Englander Peebles answer all of your questions and concerns in a compassionate and understanding manner. For many, the mere act of hiring an attorney helps ease the many questions and frustrations that you are dealing with and allows you to concentrate exclusively on your recovery.

How Do I Recover Damages for My Injuries?

You should not try to handle the legal aspects of your case on your own. In addition to potentially accepting a low ball offer from insurance companies that are not looking out for you, the legal aspects of even a simple personal injury case can get complicated, fast! In order to recover for an injury caused by another, you will need to prove a number of things, including:

  • The defendant owed the victim a duty of care. In general, every person owes every other person a duty to act in a reasonable manner so as to avoid injuring another person. Applied to a slip and fall case, an example of this would be a supermarkets duty to have clean floors for the patrons that shop there;

  • The defendant breached that duty of care. One breaches the duty of care when he or she acts carelessly or in a manner that an objective and reasonable person would not have acted under the circumstances. Using the same slip and fall scenario above, this would require showing that the supermarket neglected this duty by knowing (or they should have known) that there were dangerous areas on the floor that customers walk on;

  • The defendant's actions caused your injuries. You must show that either the cause or a contributing factor of your injuries were due to the actions of the defendant, and;

  • The victim was injured. In other words, you must prove you suffered some injury that can be compensated by money. Say you broke your arm when you slipped on the floor in the spot the supermarket should have made safe-this is a classic example of the defendant's actions contributing to your injuries and you having costly injuries as a result of it.

We are experienced South Florida personal injury attorneys based out of Fort Lauderdale. We know what steps and legal arguments must be made and also knows the potential arguments that are likely to be presented in your case. Englander Peebles works tirelessly to gather all of the evidence that is needed to pursue an injury claim. We aggressively advocate on your behalf to both the insurance company and the jury so that you can obtain justice for your serious injuries.

Englander Peebles is Here for You

Personal injury victims and their families face feelings of uncertainty, confusion, and anger. While we cannot undo the damage caused by someone else's careless actions, we will work tirelessly to help you and your family obtain compensation for your injuries and begin moving forward.
