When should I schedule my free consultation?

At the moment you file a claim to obtain compensation for your injuries, the insurance carrier will begin determining how much to pay you. Because these companies are in business to make money, saving every penny counts. By building your case early, you can begin gathering the evidence you need to hold them accountable for the full amount to which you are entitled. Evidence is often lost, and witnesses are either overlooked or lost as more time passes, so it is important to get started right away.

Will my case go to trial?

Statistically, most cases settle, but we are prepared to take your case to trial, if needed, depending on the situation.

At what point should I settle my case?

Having the help of experienced Fort Lauderdale lawyers will help you to know when it’s right to settle. By gathering evidence about the extent of your injuries, the costs to treat them, and how much will be lost in the meantime, you will have better information about how to move forward with your case.

Can I be compensated for a previous injury?

Only if that injury was worsened by the injury caused by the negligent party. Otherwise, that party is only responsible for the damage they caused in your claim.

How can I prove I was a victim of negligence or carelessness?

To win a personal injury award, you will need to prove more than just your need for compensation.

You will have to show that:

  • You are, in fact, injured
  • Your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence
  • The damage you sustained requires money to fix
  • The negligent party has some means to provide the funds

How much can I expect to collect from my settlement?

Each case will be different, but there are common damages that the negligent party will likely be expected to repay.

These include:

  • Costs for medical expenses
  • Lost wages and income
  • Future medical expenses
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

What happens if my loved one was killed in an accident?

When someone is killed as a result of another’s error, negligence, or irresponsibility, there may be a case of wrongful death. These suits are brought by the decedent’s family and must be done within a period known as the statute of limitations—usually two years from the date of the incident. Our firm can help you learn more about how to file these kinds of claims and improve your chances of obtaining the best outcome for your situation.

What should I do if my loved one was abused in a nursing home?

While most nursing homes are full of caring staff who treat their residents with respect, there are those which do not.

Your loved one may be a victim of nursing home abuse if you notice:

  • Bedsores
  • Malnourishment
  • Unexplained wounds
  • Unusual behavior
  • Dirty clothing

If you think your loved one is was a victim of nursing home abuse, call the Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A. right away. During our free consultation, we can help you better understand how to proceed with your case and keep your loved one safe from harm.

How do I know if I have been a victim of medical malpractice?

There are assumed risks to every procedure, but there is a difference when it comes to malpractice. Physicians and medical staff are trained and expected to uphold standards of observation and care when they administer their services. As these cases are among the most complex, we recommend you speak with a skilled attorney before pursuing

You may be a victim of malpractice if you experienced:

  • A misdiagnosis of your condition
  • Incorrect prescription for your treatment needs
  • Wrong surgery performed
  • Lack of awareness of procedural risks

Medical malpractice is more common than you might think, but the insurance carriers covering these procedures can make it difficult to get the compensation you require. It is important to work with an experienced Fort Lauderdale lawyer to get the help you need.
