Yes, it is worth hiring a car accident lawyer. When you have an attorney on your side after a car accident, it can greatly reduce your stress and may even improve the outcome of your case. Even if you believe your accident and injuries were relatively minor, it is a good idea to let an attorney review the facts of your case.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our team offers free, no-obligation case reviews. We can protect your rights and file your personal injury protection (PIP) claim or a lawsuit.
Our Lawyers Can Protect Your Rights From The Insurance Company And Other Parties Looking To Undercut Your Payout
We can help you prove your damages and file a claim based on your PIP coverage or, if you qualify, file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. It is important to know that insurance company representatives are not on your side. This includes the ones from your carrier. They want to pay out as little as possible to protect their company’s bottom line.
It is especially worth hiring a car accident lawyer when dealing with the insurance company of an at-fault driver. They will try all sorts of tricks and tactics to deny fault and try to blame you for causing or contributing to the accident.
They may claim:
- You caused the accident, not their policyholder
- You acted negligently and contributed to your own injuries
- Your injuries occurred in another way
- You did not follow the doctor’s instructions, and this prevented you from reaching a full recovery
Under the state’s comparative fault law, this reduces the amount you can recover and saves the insurer money.
We can reduce the risk of this by handling all communication with the insurance companies and filing your claim on your behalf. We know how to spot their tactics and how to respond to them without endangering your right to recover compensation for your damages.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring An Attorney?
Whether you are filing an insurance claim or preparing to sue in civil court, you will have to deal with a lot of paperwork and documentation. This paperwork may include:
- Correspondence with the insurance adjuster
- Submitting medical records for review
- Filing motions during court proceedings
If you fail to provide all appropriate documentation in time, insurers may deny your claim, or the court may dismiss your case.
Personal injury attorneys know about deadlines and are aware of what documentation you need to file your claim. With our attorneys on your case, rest assured that we can file the appropriate paperwork and meet every time limit.
An Attorney Represents Your Interests With The Insurance Company And In Court
If your case goes to court, the defense attorneys representing the negligent driver in your accident will protect their client and make you look undeserving of damages. They may doubt your injuries and the necessity of your treatment or blame you for the accident. Their goal is to make sure their client must pay you as little as possible.
If you want to recover the damages and benefits you deserve, you can work with a lawyer throughout the process to identify all your damages and pursue fair compensation. Our attorneys can be your voice when it comes to dealing with insurance companies and can make sure you do not inadvertently admit liability. If you file a lawsuit, we can present your case and counter the defense’s arguments.
An Attorney Understands Accident-Related Laws And Topics
Car accident cases seem straightforward, but the truth is, many factors go into whether you will recover damages. For example, to recover PIP benefits from your insurer, you must show that you suffered injuries and that the accident caused your injuries. If your injuries are severe, you may file a lawsuit against the other driver and prove that their negligence caused your injuries.
To manage your case, you need to know:
- Florida driving laws
- Medical conditions commonly related to car accidents
- Damages awarded in cases like yours
- Accident and vehicle mechanics
Personal injury attorneys who work on cases like yours every day know most or all these areas. If an attorney has questions about something relevant to your case, they have a team of experts to assist them.

We Can File Legal Action In Your Car Accident Case If Necessary
Occasionally, it is impossible to reach an out-of-court agreement that is fair based on the damages you suffered. If we cannot reach an agreement or the insurance company is trying to drag out settlement negotiations, we can take legal action and file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
If necessary, we can take your case to trial and present the evidence we gathered to prove fault, liability, and the value of your compensatory damages.
When Should You Get Started?
It is usually better to contact a lawyer and begin your case sooner rather than later.
One reason it is important that you reach out to us quickly following your accident is that the state’s statute of limitations sets a time limit for how long we have to litigate your case. Reach out to us today to get started just in case.
Will Working With A Personal Injury Lawyer Be Expensive?
The main concern accident victims have about hiring an attorney is the cost. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we do not charge you any attorney fees unless we win. We also offer free case reviews to help people learn more about their rights at no cost or obligation.
