Sarasota Personal Injury Attorneys
People get hurt in accidents every single day in Sarasota and Bradenton. Dealing with the long term effects of those injuries can have a terribly negative impact upon your life.

How are you supposed to deal with all of those new issues following an accident without receiving a fair settlement?
Thankfully there are laws in place to help those injured in accident obtain the financial compensation needed to continue living their life. Helping victims recover fair compensation for their injuries is what the lawyers at Viacava & Cantor do every day.
What to do when you’ve been injured
Being injured in an accident can be disorienting. It’s hard to focus on appropriate steps when you’re in pain, but there are things you can do that will be beneficial to your legal case down the road.
1. Obtain a police report
If you are involved in an accident with an injury, make sure the police are called. It is much more difficult to fight a case when the only accounts are those of the victim and persons at fault. Having the police present to document everything ensures that many of the following steps will be taken care of while you attend to your injuries.
2. Make sure witnesses present have their accounts documented
If there are others present at the time of the accident, it is essential to record their version of events. Eyewitness testimony from individuals with no vested interest in the outcome can be crucial to ensuring that you receive a fair and proper settlement from the insurance company.
3. Document the accident scene and damage
Make sure that the scene is photographed and well-documented.
4. Find the right attorney
This is especially true of personal injury cases. You only have one chance to get the right result. Once you’ve agreed to a settlement or a jury has returned a verdict you will not get a second chance to get the result you deserve.
Paying for your personal injury attorney
At the law firm of Viacava & Cantor we take personal injury cases under a contingency fee agreement. A contingency fee agreement is an agreement whereby your lawyer takes your case without you paying your lawyer directly, rather your lawyer receives a portion of the settlement proceeds at the time of settlement. If your case does not settle we never receive any money and do not seek money from you.
The lawyers at the law firm of Viacava & Cantor fight for the injured in order to level the playing field when you are in conflict with a billion dollar insurance company. The lawyers at Viacava & Cantor are dedicated to fighting the insurance companies to receive the most amount of money for you on your personal injury case in Sarasota or Bradenton.
