Our Local Knowledge
Sometimes the difference between winning and losing a case comes down to the knowledge of the local environment and the frequency of accidents that occur at hot spots.
All the lawyers at Lyons, Snyder & Collin were born and raised in South Florida. We know which intersections are danger zones. We know which school zones have more crashes. We know which stores have a higher percentage of slip and falls. We know which neighborhoods have a higher percentage of bicycle crashes. We use this knowledge as leverage when negotiating with insurance adjusters – especially on contested liability cases.
Shouldn’t your attorney use every bit of knowledge to your advantage? Let us use our unique insight to extract maximum value on your claim.
Frequently Asked Questions with Personal Injury
Do I have a personal injury case?
If you are injured as a result another individual’s negligence, you may have a personal injury case. We will seek to find all available “pockets” (i.e. insurance) to pay for your damages. Damages include: (1) past and future medical bills; (2) past and future lost wages; and (3) past and future pain and suffering. You can always choose to resolve your case pre-suit (before filing a lawsuit) or by filing a lawsuit, depending on the settlement terms.
What is my car accident case worth?
There are many factors to take into consideration when determining the value of a car accident case. Some factors include: (1) contested or clear liability; (2) severity of property damage; (3) severity of injuries; (4) length of treatment; (5) types of treatment; (6) types of “invasive” treatment (i.e. injections/surgery); (7) out of pocket medical bills / boardable medical bills; (8) future prognosis / future treatment;
Oftentimes a major factor in the value of your case is whether you have been involved in a prior accident or have pre-existing injuries. Insurance companies routinely attempt to punish people for prior complaints of neck and back pain. They will claim that ALL your current complaints are unrelated to the current car crash and were pre-existing. We think that’s unacceptable and unfair. Most people have complained of back and/or neck pain at some time in their life. We will not let the insurance company low-ball you for going to a chiropractor for a car crash many years ago.
How much does in cost to talk to a lawyer?
Nothing …The consultation is free.
Car accident attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder handle all accident cases on a contingency basis; if we do not collect, you owe us nothing.
What are common injuries after a car crash?
The most common injuries after a car crash include:
- Lower Neck (injuries to lower cervical spine)
- Lower Back (injuries to lower lumbar spine)
In a large majority of rear-end car crashes, people complain of pain in their lower neck at Cervical 5-6 and Cervical 6-7.
Additionally, the lower back is the weakest part of the spine. As a result, it is the area most susceptible to injury from trauma.
- Numbness and tingling to extremities
- Loss of strength in extremities
- Shoulders, Elbow, Wrist and Hand
- Knees and Feet
- Broken Bones
- Brain Injuries
If you believe you are suffering from a brain injury (i.e. concussion-like symptoms, vertigo, nausea, issues with vision, dizziness, issues with balance, numbness and tingling in hands/feet, etc.), immediately have someone drive you to the hospital as you may have a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Do I need a personal injury attorney?
In our experience, a skilled personal injury attorney will be able to get you substantially more money than you could get negotiating on your own. These types of negotiations are what attorneys do for a living. We understand how to work with insurance companies to get you the settlement you deserve.
Insurance companies are in the game of risk. If they feel their risk is limited, they have no incentive to pay you full value of your claim. We add value by increasing their risk.
We know what the insurance companies place value on and where they could be exposed. The threat of us filing suit gives you negotiating power. Without this threat, you can almost never negotiate with the insurance company on an even playing field.
Common pitfalls in personal injury cases.
An unexperienced personal injury attorney will get run over by an experienced insurance adjuster or insurance attorney.
Personal injury cases, especially cases with high values, trucking cases and premise liability cases, are filled with land mines. You need a specialist, not someone who dabbles in this area of law.
Personal injury attorneys need to:
- Be aggressive
- Have courtroom experience
- Have a track record (insurance companies keep track on attorney’s settlement history, number of cases filed, etc.)
- Be a good negotiator
- Be a good listener (not all cases are “cookie cutter”)
- Know the law (especially in cases involving slip and falls, trip and falls, and trucking cases)
- Know basic/intermediary medical terminology
- Know which doctors are “case killers” (i.e. doctors that work for insurance companies and are pre-disposed to believe that you are lying about the causation of your injuries)
- Creative / out of the box thinker
The “flashy” personal injury attorney with billboards, bus stop benches, and TV ads is usually just a good salesman. He/she typically knows very little about the law or how to extract value. He is good at signing clients up and passing them off to legal assistants. For all but the easiest of cases, you are leaving a lot of money on the table hiring these types of attorneys. Most, if not all, personal injury attorneys charge the same amount for their services. Read reviews of other victims just like you. Can you trust your attorney? Will he/she be transparent? Will he/she look out for your best interests? Will he/she pick up the phone if you call? Will he/she push you to settle your case for less than it’s worth to avoid filing suit? If not, why hire them?
