Frequently Asked Questions

We receive a lot of questions at The Harr Law Firm. We have compiled a list of our frequently asked questions to help you learn more about your case and what you can expect when you work with us.

Personal Injury Questions

Do I have a case after a car accident?

You may. It all depends on the specific factors involved in your crash. We will help you find medical care and investigate your accident to determine fault and liability to see if you should file a claim.

Do I need to see a doctor after an accident?

Yes. You should seek medical attention even if you don't feel injured immediately after an accident. Injuries may not present symptoms until days or even weeks after an accident, so it is important to be evaluated before agreeing to any settlement with the insurance company.

Should I speak to the other driver's insurance company after an accident?

No, not before speaking to your attorney first. Your attorney will protect your rights and interests and make sure any settlement offers you receive are fair before agreeing to terms.

I think my parent was abused by the nursing home. What can I do?

In addition to reporting the suspected abuse to the authorities, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the nursing home and workers responsible for your parent's care.

Family Law Questions

How is child custody decided?

The court will consider several factors when determining child custody. They look at each parent's income and ability to care for the child, each parent's health, the child's choice if they are old enough, the bond between each parent and child and many other factors.

Do I have to go to trial to get a divorce/dissolution of marriage?

No. You can avoid trial if you and your spouse are able to reach an agreement through mediation or settlement negotiation with the help of your lawyers.

How long will my divorce take?

Every dissolution of marriage is different. The length of time to finalize your divorce depends on how long it takes to reach an agreement regarding property division, alimony, child custody and other issues specific to your lifestyle.

Criminal Expungement Questions

Who can have their criminal record expunged?

Applicants may not have had a previous expungement in Florida or in another jurisdiction. However, you can have multiple arrests expunged in the same proceeding. Criminal charges that resulted in a not-guilty verdict are only eligible for expungement if it has been sealed for at least 10 years. Other requirements may apply depending on the criminal charge. You can only have one expungement in your life.
