Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by the negligent or intentional act of another, you may have the right to a monetary recovery of special and general damages for the following:

Past and Future Medical Bills
Past Lost Wages
Loss or Impairment of Future Wages or Earning Capacity
Pain and Suffering
Property Damage
Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Punitive Damages

Nonetheless, having the right to recover for your injuries does not automatically mean that you will actually recover for them. Insurance companies are not on your side. Insurance companies do not voluntarily pay money on claims. They are businesses with a bottom line. They must make money. The less they pay in claims, the more profit they make. Stated another way, their incentive is to pay you the least amount possible, regardless of the validity of your injury claim, in an effort to turn the largest profit possible.

The Salameh Law Group, P.A. deals with insurance companies every day. Our experienced team of attorneys, investigators, medical experts, paralegals, and support staff will investigate the facts of your incident, evaluate your case or claim, and handle all of the details required to obtain the maximum recovery for you, our client.

There is no easy formula to determining the value of your case. Instead, the value is based on a careful analysis of the facts, legal liability, nature and extent of injuries, as well as medical expenses, lost income, loss of future earnings, pain, suffering, physical impairment and other damages. Based on our proven track record and experience, we are able to evaluate cases and provide a range of value. At The Salameh Law Group, P.A., the initial attorney case evaluation is always free and we will be glad to personally answer any questions you have regarding your case with straightforward, honest answers.

Yes. Personal injury attorneys generally charge their clients on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay your attorney only if you win compensation. Your attorney is paid a percentage of the total amount recovered. If your case is accepted, you will sign a retainer or fee agreement with The Salameh Law Group, P.A., clarifying all fees and charges.

In a contingency fee arrangement, you pay your attorney only if you win. You do not pay any out-of-pocket money upfront. Our office agrees to accept a fixed percentage (often one-third) of the amount recovered. If you win the case, our fee comes out of the money awarded to you. If you lose, neither you nor The Salameh Law Group, P.A. will get any money, and you will not be required to pay our firm for the work done on the case. By entering into a contingency fee agreement, both you and our office expect to collect some unknown amount of money. Because many personal injury actions involve considerable and often complicated investigation and work by The Salameh Law Group, P.A. this may be less expensive than paying an hourly rate.

If a Salameh Law Group, P.A. attorney believes your claim is insurable and one on which you can recover, we will proceed to gather information about your claim. In order to arrive at a figure for damages, we will need to determine the extent of your injuries, including pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement, the cost of medical treatment, and lost wages. The Salameh Law Group, P.A. will then provide your damages figure to the insurer of the person who injured you. If the insurer considers it a valid claim, the case is likely to be resolved and will not be tried in court.

Yes, especially if you have uninsured motorist coverage. That is insurance you purchase that will pay you when the at-fault driver does not have insurance or enough insurance to compensate you for your injuries.

Under Florida law, your insurance company must offer you uninsured motorist coverage. Also you must sign a document authorized by the Florida Department of Insurance if you choose to reject uninsured motorist coverage. This type of coverage typically is not expensive and protects you against uninsured drivers, which in Florida may be as high as one in four.

There is something else to consider. If your child or a member of your household is walking or riding a bike and is struck by a hit-and-run driver, your uninsured motorist coverage will compensate you for the injuries. And if you are a passenger in another person’s vehicle and there is a collision and you suffer injuries, your uninsured motorist coverage would cover treatment of your injuries if the car’s owner was underinsured or had no insurance.

This is why Attorney Mark Salameh and The Salameh Law Group, P.A. always advise our clients to purchase uninsured motorist coverage. 

The good thing about Personal Injury Protection, or PIP insurance is that it allows you to choose your own doctor unlike an HMO where a gatekeeper determines whether you can or cannot be directed to see a specialist for treatment. You can use your PIP insurance to find your own doctor who can help you with your injuries.

At The Salameh Law Group, P.A., we ensure our clients are getting the proper treatment for their injuries. Having helped many clients over the years, Attorney Mark Salameh and his team can assist you in selecting doctors who are well-qualified to treat your particular type of injury.
