I needed an attorney that had the experience and knowledge to negotiate terms that would not only be beneficial in the immediate future, but also in a manner that wouldn't limit my ability to work in the future. Christopher Klotz, and his associate Michael Coup, skillfully negotiated my settlement and provided an outcome that other attorneys had assured me was not possible. My phone calls and emails were always returned within hours, if not minutes, and they always had time for my questions. Along with top-notch service, his rate was significantly lower than many other firms I interviewed. I would absolutely use them again, and would recommend them to my closest friends and family!

Mission Statement

Proactively seeking justice for our clients and community and providing superior customer service with compassion and empathy.

 

A personal injury happens when you suffer an injury to your body, mind, or emotions due to the carelessness, recklessness, or intentional conduct of another. If you have had the misfortune to be the victim of an accident in which you suffered an injury, you may well want to consider consulting a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who concentrates on personal injury cases.

Pensacola Personal Injury Lawyers Handling a Variety of Claims

There are many ways to get hurt, but in the personal injury world, they mostly boil down to someone’s negligence.

In Florida, negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, which is what a reasonably careful person would use under similar circumstances. Essentially, the theory of negligence is that one party owes another a duty to take care, fails to meet or breaches that duty, and the other party incurs an injury due to that failure.

Typical Personal Injury Cases

Some examples of personal injury cases include:

Car Accidents – The Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles says of the almost 400,000 car accidents in Florida each year, over 45,000 result in injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents – No doubt partly because of its year-round good weather, Florida has a very high incidence of motorcycle accidents and the highest number of motorcycle-related fatalities among the 50 states.

Nursing Home Abuse – Seniors and the disabled in nursing homes are extremely vulnerable to abuse. Statistically, one in ten will suffer that abuse in their lifetime.

Premises Liability – Also known as slip-and-fall injuries, these happen when you are on the property of another, and some hazard there results in your injury. Your ability to recover depends on whether you were invited there, permitted there, or illegally there. They are especially prevalent as well as especially dangerous for those over 65.

Wrongful Death – Wrongful death in Florida is an action filed by a deceased person’s estate when a person causes the death of another by some wrongful act. As you might imagine, all of the examples above can – and do – result in wrongful death cases.

Why You Need a Pensacola Personal Injury Attorney After an Accident

Insurance companies make their highest profits when they pay out the least in claims. Their lawyers are not your friends. Your experienced Pensacola personal injury attorney has the skill and knowledge of the law and your adversaries to properly evaluate your case and successfully negotiate your best settlement with the other side.

Call Us Today to Schedule a Free Case Evaluation with a Pensacola Personal Injury Lawyer

Florida only allows four years for filing a personal injury lawsuit. This period may seem like a lot of time, but witnesses and documents disappear, memories fade, and your bills keep piling up. Contact us today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation for your Pensacola personal injury claim.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

How can a lawyer help me after an accident?

An experienced personal injury attorney can help you after an accident in many ways. First, they will review your case and determine if you have a valid personal injury claim. If you do, they will gather evidence including witness statements from the accident scene, medical records, police reports, and more to build a strong personal injury case. They will also negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to get the best settlement possible for you. Finally, if necessary, they will take your case to court and fight to recover compensation for you. If you have been injured in an accident, don’t try to handle everything yourself. Let our experienced personal injury attorneys help you. Our understanding of personal injury cases could make all the difference in your claim. Contact us today to schedule a free case review.

What are the benefits of working with a personal injury lawyer?

There are many benefits of working with a Pensacola personal injury lawyer. First, they are experienced dealing with the insurance companies and know how to negotiate for you to get the best possible settlement. Second, they will be able to handle all the paperwork and legalities involved in your case so that you can focus on your recovery. Finally, if your case goes to court, they will be able to fight for you in court and get you the compensation you deserve.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

The statute of limitations is the time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Under Florida law (95.11(3)(a)), the statute of limitations for an accident caused by negligence is generally four years from the date of the accident. This means that you have four years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. For medical malpractice cases, you have only two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. There may be other cases where you have a limited time to act, so be sure to discuss the circumstances of your accident with a Pensacola personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Contact Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers for a free legal consultation. We can determine the statute of limitations that applies to your case and make sure you don’t miss a deadline and get barred from seeking compensation.

How much does a Pensacola personal injury attorney cost?

Personal injury cases are usually handled on a contingency fee basis. You will meet, at no cost, with the attorney to evaluate your case. If you both agree to proceed, you will enter into an engagement fee letter which will set forth the percentage of your award that your attorney will receive if you win your case. The standard is usually 33.33% to 40% and may vary depending on the stage at which the award is received. The attorney will front the expenses and be reimbursed out of the award. If you do not win, your attorney does not get paid or reimbursed.

Is it worth retaining a personal injury lawyer after a minor accident?

Even if you think your accident is minor, you should still consult with an experienced Pensacola personal injury attorney. Some injuries manifest later than others; insurance companies can be hard to deal with, and you don’t know the territory as well as the lawyer. In that initial evaluation, your attorney will tell you if your case truly is too minor to need a lawyer.

What should I do if I’m injured in an accident and don’t have a personal injury lawyer yet?

If you’ve been injured in an accident and don’t have a lawyer yet, the first thing you should do is see a doctor. It’s important to get your injuries checked out as soon as possible. Once you’ve seen a doctor, the next step is to call a personal injury lawyer. The sooner you call, the sooner we can start working on your case. At Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers, we understand how difficult this time can be for you. When you bring it to us, we’ll bring it to them! Call today for a free case evaluation.

How much is my case worth?

The worth of your case includes many variables. It includes your medical expenses and bills, physical therapy, assistive equipment, lost wages, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. One of the most important reasons to use a personal injury attorney is that the attorney will be able to judge the value of your case far more knowledgeably than you will.

How long will it take to settle my case?

The amount of time it takes to settle your case will depend on the specific circumstances of your personal injury claim. In some cases a full and fair settlement might be reached in a matter of weeks, and in others it may take months or even years.

If I’m not happy with the settlement offer from the insurance company, can I still hire a personal injury lawyer?

Yes, you can still hire a personal injury lawyer even if you’re not happy with the settlement offer from the insurance company. Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers can help you get the full amount of compensation you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a free case evaluation and get an experienced lawyer to negotiate on your behalf.

Can I negotiate my own settlement with the insurance company without a personal injury lawyer?

You can try to negotiate your own settlement with the insurance company, but it is in your best interest and you are likely to get better results when you hire a lawyer. They have the knowledge and experience to get you the full amount of compensation you deserve. The insurance company may try to lowball you and offer you a settlement that is less than what you deserve for your physical injuries, emotional harm, and mental anguish you have suffered. If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair amount of compensation in settlement negotiations, your lawyer can take your case to court. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Contact Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers today to schedule a free consultation.
