IT COSTS YOU NOTHING TO HIRE AN EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
Attorneys handle accident cases on a contingent fee basis. This means that unless there is a recovery of money from the at-fault insurance company or through uninsured motorist claims, there is no legal fee. Most doctors will treat you and collect money from your car insurance and wait until the end of the case to collect any balance due them. In other types of accident cases, the doctors will accept your health insurance.
If your own insurance company refuses to pay you for the damages to your vehicle or for your doctor’s bills or lost wages, your attorney can file a lawsuit against your own insurance company and your insurance company, when it settles and resolves the case, will have to pay your attorney’s fees.
Therefore, if you are the innocent victim of an accident, you do have rights and it will not cost you any money out of your pocket to hire an experienced and reputable attorney.
If you have been injured in the State of Florida and believe that the injury occurred due to another party’s negligence, we can help you. We provide aggressive legal representation in accordance with Florida law to innocent victims of car accidents, negligence, bus accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death, airplane accidents, slip and falls/trip and falls, premises liability, negligent security, and more. We can aid you in:
- Proving negligence and liability. The most important part of any personal injury claim is finding out who was at fault and proving it. We will conduct the proper and necessary investigation to prove the other party was at fault.
- Determining your damages amount. No two personal injury claims are alike, and damages in each case will vary dramatically. We will help you to determine and prove the value of your claim, including damages for pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of consortium, and more. You will be going to reputable medical specialists for treatment. Your case will be personally handled by Alex Barak who has served the people of Florida with successful results in personal injury claims for 35 years.
- Negotiating for a fair settlement amount. An insurance company will obviously try to offer you low values. We have 35 years experience negotiating with them for fine settlements, and if they unreasonably refuse to pay a good settlement, we take the case to a higher authority, the Court system, to hold them accountable and to force them to pay what you deserve.
- Taking your case to trial. In 98% of all personal injury lawsuits, the cases settle without a trial, but not without a fight. If an at-faulty part refuses a fair settlement, we will take them to court and if necessary to trial. We fight for your justice until the end.

LEARN WHY ALEX BARAK HAS PASSION TO HANDLE ACCIDENT CASES
When he was 21 years old and a college student journalist, a limousine went through a red light and struck his first car and caused it to be a total loss. Even though the driver admitted his fault to him and to the police and even though there was an eyewitness to the collision, the insurance company for the at-fault party refused to offer more than 50% value of the total loss car. Mr. Barak was devastated and impacted by the dishonesty of that insurance company and he would not back down. He sued the limousine company in Court and forced it to pay him full value for the car. The Judge commented to young Mr. Barak: “You handled yourself very well young man. You should go to law school.” He responded: “I will.” The rest is history. He has dedicated his career to helping accident victims and to hold at-fault parties responsible in accordance with justice and truth.

Alex Barak will fight for your justice to the end, when you receive maximum compensation. No stone will be left unturned.
BIBLICAL SOURCE OF COMPENSATION
Exodus 21:24-25: ” an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise.”
This was not meant to be literal, but monetary compensation had to be paid by the negligent party who caused another person to lose an eye, a tooth, hand, foot or whom was burned. This system of civil compensation to accident victims has been passed through several thousands of years of development, but it still comes from the BIBLE.
While on the subject of the Bible, always remember: “Justice, Justice You Shall Pursue” Deuteronomy 16:20.
Florida Personal Injury Attorney Making Your Damages’ Claim
After the doctor concludes your medical treatment, he sends his/her report, records, and bills to the attorney and your attorney then organizes all the medical records from the case including any and all hospital records, MRI reports, fire rescue records, and will make a demand to the at-fault Insurance company to make a lump sum payment on your behalf. If the negotiations fail to result in adequate offer, the attorney needs to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party(s). Personal Injury litigation, which mean lawsuits over accident injury cases, can take from six month to two years to reach the conclusion. The court systems will tell you that at least 98% of all lawsuits filed do not go to trial because they are settled at some point.
There is a condition of going a requesting a trial; the Court orders the parties to go to Mediation, which is a settlement conference. A professional mediator, an attorney who also may be a retired judge, will sit with both sides and try to work out a fair and reasonable settlement between the parties. Many insurance companies refuse to pay fair values until your case is set for trial and you are very close to trial. Others may try to settle the case earlier, depending on its corporate policy. Often times injuries are worth more than the policy limits which are available and the injured party receives some compensation, but not full value for their injuries. That is why many people purchase large limits of uninsured motorist coverage so in the event he/she are in a serious car accident and sustains significant permanent injuries, they will have enough insurance coverage to pay for proper compensation. A person injured in an accident of any kind must seek medical attention immediately. It must be documented, the earlier the better. Every day delayed results in an increased disbelief in your claim.

Your Opponent To Your Personal Injury Claim
Accident victims in the State of Florida face a very formidable foe: the insurance industry, which is interested in minimizing the amounts it pays in legitimate claims. There are times, quite frequently, where the defense side employs delays, deception, and “defense medical doctors,” who at times misrepresent victims’ medical conditions and/or render biased, unprofessional opinions about accident victims. Alex Barak has been an innovator in fighting for and defending accident victims’ rights.
There are many honest insurance adjusters who negotiate settlements for reasonable sums. There are many insurance defense attorneys who practice honestly and professionally. The problem lies in those who do not meet these descriptions, where the battle for truth and compensation for the innocent victim is seriously contested.
Through his well connected network of attorneys and friendships with those on the defense side who have provided him with defense strategies that are employed against accident victims, Alex Barak has a wider insight to strategies which can better serve you. Alex Barak was the first or one of the first attorneys in Broward County to accompany his clients with a Court Reporter to the required defense medical doctor examinations in lawsuits involving personal injuries. Starting over three decades ago, he was not aware of any single attorney who would go with his client to the defense medical examination. The purpose of the attorney appearing in the examination is to monitor what the doctor does during the examination, take notes what is doing, and to report any abuses and dishonesty by the defense doctors, which is quite often.
If an accident victim files a lawsuit, the defense has the legal right to have the injured claimant examined by a doctor of its own selection, and they often select an orthopedic medical doctor with academy award acting skills who may and will minimize the extent of the legitimate injuries or state there is no permanent injury that is related to the subject accident. These “defense doctors” often do not act neutrally.They are more likely than not strong advocates for the insurance or defense side. Some come to a conclusion that is blatantly one-sided and biased. Some have a habit of stating there is a pre-existing condition causing pain and discomfort, rather than the recent accident. Alex Barak has eye-witnessed and documented doctors reporting the opposite of what the client has stated in defense medical examinations.
In addition, Alex Barak brings a court reporter who documents the answers of the accident victim in response to oral questions by the defense doctor and comments about pain during a physical examination. Incredibly, some defense doctors seem not to care they are documented as writing in their reports the opposite of what happened during the examination. Mr. Barak has seen defense doctors with magician-like hands touch four to six areas around the neck and the head without asking the accident victim if she/he had any pain and the doctor reports in his results that the patient, the examinee, had no complaints. Some defense doctors have employed tricks and dishonesty during these types of examinations to come to the most frequent conclusions that the injured party is not permanently injured or the pain and suffering is from pre-existing condition. There does not appear to be any enforcement of the abuse by some defense doctors in the State of Florida for deliberately misrepresentative medical opinions.
If an attorney will engage in a Court case with the level of misrepresentation seen by some of these defense doctors, those attorneys will be disciplined and can lose their license. But some medical doctors appear to be able to continue their misrepresentative medical opinions. The financial incentive exists for defense doctors not to be interested in confirming the injured claimant’s injuries. There is a definite pattern to minimize or eliminate any finding of a permanent and significant injury to the claimant, you the accident victim.
Alex Barak’s strategy to document the defense medical examinations with a Court Reporter has in many cases resulted in transcripts which prove the doctor has engaged in deliberate misrepresentation about the examination. This boosts the strength of your case. You must have an experienced accident and negligence attorney to protect your rights when facing the giant insurance industry, someone who knows the other side, someone who has a winning formula, and someone who will fight for your justice! Alex Barak fights for the truth in all his cases along with your doctors who support your injury and damages claim.
