Why Hire Farrow & Pulice?
Despite the stringent controls set by the Florida statutes and the Florida Bar Association, the quality of personal injury lawyers varies dramatically throughout the industry, so it benefits you to know what to look for when deciding to pursue personal injury litigation. First, make sure your lawyer has experience and the backing of an established law firm. Both can help you achieve a favorable outcome in your personal injury case.
We understand you may have more questions than answers after you've been injured in an accident. That's why it's important to evaluate the level of customer service the firm consistently provides. Questions you need to ask yourself include:
- Are my attorneys able to provide me with an accurate appraisal of my case?
- Are my attorneys able to explain the details of my case in a manner that I can understand?
- Are my attorneys able to answer my calls promptly, keep me informed on a regular basis and accommodate my needs?
The answer is "yes" to all of these questions when you retain Farrow & Pulice. Case results matter here. We put people first. We take the time to listen to our clients. Our client reviews reflect our commitment to each of our clients.
Personal Injury FAQs
- When should I speak to an attorney?
- What is my case worth?
- What damages will be included in my case?
- What is a contingency fee?
- How long will my case take?
Seek legal advice as soon as you can after the incident. While we may still be able to help you if your injury is not recent, we are subject to Florida's statute of limitations, the legal time limit for filing a lawsuit.
If the other parties or their attorneys offer a settlement or request that you sign a release, speak to an attorney first. Seeking to settle a claim for less than the case is worth is a common defense tactic. You want to be sure that you know the full extent of your injuries and any potential problems you may face in the future before signing a release.

What is my case worth?
Case values can vary substantially depending on a number of factors, including the amount of medical bills incurred, lost wages, the extent of your current injuries, potential future problems, liability you may have for the accident and the other party's ability to pay. Our attorneys review your case to determine its potential value and the likelihood of a lawsuit being successful at your free, no-risk initial consultation.

What damages will be included in my case?
Damages typically include medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, trauma, and damage to your property. We are often also able to recover the costs associated with the lawsuit, including our fee, from the opposing party.

What is a contingency fee?
With a contingency fee, we only get paid if your lawsuit is successful. Once the court has found in your favor or we have reached a settlement, our fee comes out of your award. In most cases, it is one-third of your award. In some cases, such as highly intricate cases or those in which fees are governed by state law, your fee may be more or less.

How long will my case take?
The length of the legal process depends on the complexity of your case. If you are still recovering from your injuries or there is the potential for future medical problems, our lawyers prefer to have a handle on these vital issues before concluding your case. This information prevents the possibility of problems cropping up after you have signed the release and waived your right to future compensation.
