Personal Injury Claim Process
The personal injury claims process is complex and detail oriented. It is designed by insurance companies to result in the most favorable outcomes for insurance companies, not injured parties. As such, it is imperative you retain a personal injury lawyer in Delray Beach as soon as you realize you may have a case.
As noted above, there are several types of personal injury cases and no two cases are the same. The severity of the injuries as well as whether or not an incident is covered under an insurance policy both play a role in shaping the direction the filing of a claim will take. At Porcaro Law Group, we will look at numerous factors to determine the best route for filing a claim.

Personal Injury Lawyer FAQs
1. How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
In order to recover compensation in a personal injury claim, you must prove the following three things: 1) liability of the responsible party, 2) damages or personal injury caused as a result, and 3) collectibility or someone to recover compensation from.
There are many different factors involved in a personal injury case, and each case can be different from the next. Contact the dedicated personal injury attorneys at Porcaro Law to discuss your case for free.
2. How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
The cost of a personal injury attorney is usually based on a contingency fee. This means that the lawyer is only paid if the case is won. Most personal injury lawyers charge a 33% to 40% contingency fee depending on how complicated the case is.
This is why Porcaro Law Group offers a completely free initial consultation. We offer this free evaluation so you can get a better understanding of what your case is worth and how our personal injury attorneys can help you.
3. How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?
In Florida, most personal injury cases need to be filed within 4 years of the incident, with exceptions. It is recommended to contact a personal injury lawyer immediately after the accident, as they will direct you on exact steps to take next to ensure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
4. How much is my personal injury case worth?
Compensation in personal injury cases can typically range anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000 in Florida depending on the case and the injuries sustained. It’s important to remember that each personal injury case is unique. Typically, the amount of compensation you are entitled to will be based on how the incident happened, who is responsible, how serious your injuries are, medical treatment received, whether you lost income, etc.
5. What are my chances of a successful personal injury claim?
If you have a viable personal injury case, your chances of making a financial recovery are very good. According to U.S. Government statistics, only about 5% of personal injury cases go to trial. The other 95% are settled pretrial.
