If you have been injured in an automobile accident or suffered some other serious personal injury due to the negligence or misconduct of another, then you may be entitled under the law to be compensated for your injuries and expenses from the negligent driver or other responsible party. Obtaining the compensation you deserve, however, is never an easy matter, and is extremely difficult to accomplish if you are not represented by able and experienced personal injury lawyers. The attorneys at Perry Draper Law, PLLC care deeply for injury victims and work hard to maximize the recovery they can get.
St. Petersburg Lawyers Fighting For You
Personal injury victims can recover for present and future medical expenses and lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages allowed by law. But the burden is on the injury victim to bring the case in court and to prove to a jury that the accident was the fault of the defendant, whether it is the driver of the other automobile, the owner of property kept in a dangerous condition, the maker of a defective product, or the owner of a dangerous animal. These defendants are usually represented by experienced trial lawyers hired by their insurance company who are well-versed in all the available defenses and procedural maneuvers to deflect or minimize the liability exposure of their client.
Of course, not all cases go to trial; the majority of cases are settled out of court. Obtaining a fair settlement, however, requires a deep knowledge of and experience in a wide variety of personal injury matters. Insurance adjusters and insurance company lawyers deal with these matters every day and have a much stronger bargaining position against an unrepresented person who does not know the true value of the case and accepts a lowball offer from the insurer, thinking it’s fair. There are also many injury lawyers who operate on volume, taking every case that comes their way, resolving it quickly for a quick cash settlement and then moving on to the next case. At Perry Draper Law, PLLC, we do not think this is best for the client. Our lawyers spend the time and effort working on your individual case to get the best result possible, even if it means going to trial. The insurance companies know this and are more likely to negotiate fairly with us from the outset rather than risk a trial.

A personal message from Attorney Arthur Draper:
When I was in college, I was involved in an accident in which my neck was injured going through a car window. This injury ended my college football career. In the end, I lost money in this accident and I was never fully compensated for my costs.
I felt the system had let me down. Knowing what I know now, I realize my case was in a “volume” firm and the law firm I hired had let me down. I promise to represent your claim with passion and give 100%. We will not settle at lowball offers to avoid work and make a quick buck. We take our clients and their cases seriously.
My goal is to give you the help I never received when I was injured.
Yours Very Truly,
