This car crash was so violent that the rear bumper of the automobile was inches from the driver’s head. Our 43-year-old client’s life was forever changed when an employee from Mercedes Benz of Melbourne crashed into the rear of their vehicle. The car crash crushed the rear of their automobile and resulted in catastrophic injuries for our client. After a seven-day jury trial, our client was awarded $4.3 Million Dollars.
Every year in every case we try, we are shocked to find how little insurance companies want to offer our clients. On average, we find that insurance undervalues injury claims by 2 to 100 times what we get for our client. It’s a broad spectrum, but it proves a point.
Most people don’t understand how badly insurance is setting them up for the future.
The majority of the workplace injuries or illness that take place every day come out nowhere. An injury compiled with the trauma of losing work can lead to lasting pain and suffering. To make matters worse, insurance is known for fighting cases when individuals are injured on the job. When it is time for insurance companies to fulfill their duty, they are often more focused on revenue than helping the injured.
The top insurance companies made over $300,000,000,000 in 2019 by making sure they were paying out claims that were favorable to them. Great personal injury lawyers know the tricks of the insurance companies. At Douglas R. Beam P.A., our personal injury lawyers have brought in over $100,000,000 in settlements and verdicts and helped our clients, on average, receive 3x what they’re offered before our firm is hired.

These three characteristics are a must-have for a personal injury lawsuit:
Find a personal injury lawyer who has a history of winning negligence lawsuits. These personal injury attorneys will understand your injury lawsuit, your injury or illness and how your life has changed. Additionally, the right personal injury lawyer will understand complications around wrongful termination, medical costs, medical care, disability benefits and employers insurance.
Good personal injury lawyers bet on themselves. The way they do that is through contingency fees. All that means is that you don’t pay any money up front. Standard contingency fees are between 10% and 25% of whatever is awarded.
The majority of cases in great personal injury law firms settle. Why? Because insurance is terrified of going to court against great personal injury attorneys. Trials are expensive and time-consuming. Insurance companies fear personal injury attorneys that have the resources, experience and know how to beat them soundly in court.
In a perfect world, when a workplace injury case takes place, we should be able to trust our insurance company to put our lives back together. Unfortunately, most insurance companies make their money by underpaying victims of injury or illness that takes place at work. When a personal injury lawyer represents some for a workplace injury, the lawyer will know how to deal with insurance companies so that they fulfill their obligations. The personal injury lawyers at Douglas R. Beam P.A. can evaluate your workplace injury lawsuit during the initial consultation and map out a plan that details the medical bills, emergency room visits, lost wages, wrongful termination, social security disability and other monetary damages you are owed as a result of the accident.
