Why It’s Important To Be Honest With Your Florida Lawyer


After being injured in a slip and fall event or car accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Particularly if you feel guilty about something you were doing at the time of the event or of your past behavior. But if you have high medical expenses and are facing a long recovery period, you need to understand your options. Being honest is an important part of a lawyer understanding the scope of the situation.

Even if you have a checkered past, you have rights. Share information with a trusted lawyer so you know how they can navigate your personal injury claim. Talk to a Florida personal injury attorney today.

Information to Share with a Trusted Attorney

To secure a full compensation settlement is needed to cover all of the expenses of an accident, including medical fees and lost income. Because people want to have a strong case, they may be tempted to forgo details or shy away from sharing any information they feel would negatively impact their claim. In reality, when a lawyer knows the full story, they are able to strategize effectively.

Some information your lawyer could ask about:

  • Details surrounding the event that resulted in injuries, including who was involved.
  • What your injuries are and what treatment plan is being followed.
  • The existence of other injuries or pre-existing health issues.
  • If you have other personal injury claims and lawsuits pending.
  • What type of communication has occurred with insurance companies, if any.
  • Your history with the law, such as a criminal record.

From there you and your lawyer can discuss any documentation you have, including police reports, images of where the accident happened, and the date, location, and time of the accident. A skilled attorney can assess this information, determine negligence, and assess the worth of your Florida injury claim.

Honesty Can Help You Secure a Full Compensation Settlement

Working with a Florida personal injury attorney is a path to a full and fair settlement package. But in order for you to secure the results you desire, you need to be honest with your lawyer each step of the way. Even if you have information you perceive as negative, your lawyer needs to know about it. Then, if the issue comes up during the course of negotiations, they will be ready to defend you.

Lawyers on your side mean you can focus on healing your injury. There is no need for you to have to handle the stress of the negotiation process when there are professionals who can deal with those details for you. Connect with a legal professional today.
