HK Legal Group services clients in Palm Beach and Broward counties, including Boca Raton and Delray Beach, in personal injury. We assist clients involved in car and motorcycle crashes, as well as slip and fall and injuries sustained on the premises of a home or business.
We begin by analyzing your claim and each party's liability in the accident. Florida is what is called a comparative negligence state, where your percentage of liability in the accident will lower your recovery by that percentage. For example, if we determine that you are 25% at fault, your potential recovery will be reduced to 75% of what you may have recovered.
We will then look at the other party's insurance policies for coverage and well as your own. We will take all of your losses- including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damages (generally in a car crash), future lost earnings, and future medical bills, and determine what a proper settlement should be. This total number is then multiplied by a certain value between 1 and 5 depending on many factors such as how serious the injuries are. This is called the multiplier.
This total amount will be proposed to the opposing insurance company for consideration. The insurance company will likely try to use a lower multiplier to pay out less, and negotiations will ensue.
We bill on a contingency basis for personal injury whereby we get paid a percentage of what you collect in the end; generally 33-40%. Contact us today for your FREE consultation.
