Listen as Kissimmee personal injury lawyer, Charlie Draper addresses whether a lawyer can guarantee a recovery.
No lawyer can guarantee a recovery, as there are many essential elements to consider when seeking to recover on a claim. First, liability or fault must be determined between the parties. This is a very important step in the claim. If liability cannot be established, recovery will not be possible.
Second, there must be bodily injury or uninsured motorist insurance coverage to make a recovery. Third, Florida requires that there be permanency of injury, meaning you have suffered a permanent injury or aggravation of a previous injury. Fourth, there must be causation regarding the accident that links it to the injury sustained.
Finally, juries are unpredictable. Even if all of the above elements are in place, you cannot guarantee a recovery because juries are unpredictable. If your attorney does guarantee a recovery, you should consult with another attorney for a second opinion. Watch the video to learn more.
