Frequently Asked Questions
Everyone who comes to a personal injury lawyer arrives with questions. To help you get those answers faster, we have provided some short responses to some of the most common questions we get at our offices in Ocala and The Villages.
What is liability?
Liability is the legal word for fault. In order to receive compensation, your lawyer will need to prove liability on the part of those who caused your injuries. In order to do this, you will have to demonstrate that the person you believe to be at fault owed you a duty of care. Some examples of duties of care include all drivers on roads, who have a duty to obey the laws and drive carefully to keep others safe; medical professionals, who have a duty to provide the treatment that any reasonable and competent professional would provide in a similar situation; and property owners, who have a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors. This can be deceptively tricky to prove, but a lawyer can help. After a duty of care has been established, you will need to prove that the at-fault party violated their duty of care in some way, that this violation led directly to your injuries, and that your injuries caused you significant damages.
How much is my case worth?
This is impossible to answer without first reviewing your case thoroughly. However, we promise to always be upfront with you and to pursue the full amount of compensation your case allows for. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for your past and future medical expenses, property damage, lost income from missing work, lost earning capacity if you suffer a disability, rehabilitative costs, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more. Furthermore, if your loved one was killed in an accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover money for their final expenses and your loss of support and inheritance.
How do I pay for your services?
Glover Law Firm works on a contingency fee basis. That means we only receive payment when you receive a monetary award. We then get paid a percentage of the final settlement or judgment that is agreed to before we handle your case. In the unlikely event that we are unable to recover any money for you, you will not owe us anything. This allows you to hire us without fear of incurring more expenses that you cannot afford.
