Meet Jeff Starker

The story of Bengal Law: Florida Accident Lawyers and Personal Injury Attorneys starts over 25 years ago when founding injury attorney Jeffrey D. Starker was working as an insurance defense attorney in Orlando, Florida. His job was simple, and it was lucrative: do everything possible to diminish the value of an injury victim’s claim to protect the insurance company’s bottom line. Jeff Starker knew how to put pressure on personal injury attorneys, driving up the cost of litigation and persuading them to settle cases for less than they were worth. As a talented injury attorney and former insurance adjuster, Jeff found success yet lacked fulfillment…

  • Jeff’s Heart for Justice

    The turning point came when Jeff represented an insurance company against a personal injury lawsuit for a defective product. A man was seriously injured as the result of a flaw in the design of the elevator. It was apparent by the facts of the case that the injured man was owed compensation for his injuries, and likely needed the compensation to accommodate his new life as an amputee. Still, Jeff was required to zealously defend the insurance company and forced a low settlement. Although Jeff was successful in achieving a desirable outcome for his client, he felt that justice for the victim was denied. While legally permissible, this end result left Jeff feeling hollow and yearning to make a difference in his life’s work.

    After that case, Jeff decided that he would never again represent another insurance company, no matter how much money they offered him. Jeff left his high-paying defense attorney position to start a new career helping Floridians injured in truck, motorcycle, and car accidents.

    A Former Insurance Attorney On Your Side

    With a unique blend of “behind-the-scenes” experiences as both an insurance adjuster and insurance defense attorney, Jeff quickly garnered a reputation as a force to be reckoned with, willing to take on the most challenging personal injury cases in Florida.

    The Experience You Need. The Compensation You Deserve.

    Fast forward to today and you’ll find not much has changed. Jeff continues to handle a select number of high-value accident cases for clients that require a dedicated and experienced accident lawyer. His ambition to serve remains as strong as ever, and his dedication to his clients’ success is unwavering. Now, Jeff continues to serve personal injury clients throughout Florida as the lead personal injury lawyer at Bengal Law: Florida Accident Lawyers and Personal Injury Attorneys PLLC.

Individualized attention.

Higher value.

The large billboard injury firms focus on settling as many cases as quickly as possible. However, the best personal injury lawyers in Orlando will provide you individualized attention, focus on your story and provide you the best opportunity to make a full financial recovery after an accident. Jeff and Joel take a different approach to personal injury. While many Orlando accident lawyers handle a high volume of cases and seek quick low value settlements, Bengal Law: Florida Accident Lawyers and Personal Injury Attorneys PLLC focuses on a low number of clients in order to maximize the money that each of our select clients.

When you call us, you will speak to directly to and work closely with injury attorney Jeff Starker, who has over 25 years of experience handling cases just like yours. If we decide to take on your case, we will spend a lengthy amount of time getting your story, gathering documents and working quickly to maximize the value of your case.

Your Rights As a Personal Injury Victim

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be facing a number of physical, emotional, and financial challenges. You may have experienced serious injuries that require ongoing medical treatment. You may have to miss work so that you can focus on your recovery. You may even be facing permanent disability as the result of an accident.

In these times, it can feel as though nothing can right the wrong you have experienced. While you may not be able to turn back time to your life before the accident, you do have powerful rights that can provide the financial recovery you need to secure your future. As personal injury attorneys, we recognize that no amount of money can fully compensate you for the pain and loss you may have experienced as the result of an accident. However, we can help you hold those responsible for your accident accountable for their negligence or wrongdoing in the form of financial compensation – money that you can use to pay medical bills, replace damaged property, and provide for the security of your family.

How can you tell if you have a good personal injury case?

Florida law does not allow us to recover every time someone is injured. The best accident lawyers in Orlando will take ample time to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your unique case. While Florida law can be quite complicated, here are a few of the most important factors that we will discuss with you when evaluating your case.

  • If someone other than you caused the accident, then you may have a successful case.

  • Emergency and ongoing medical treatment is essential to every successful car accident case. A proper medical diagnosis for your injuries, records of medical treatment, and treatment plans can support your claim.

  • No matter how serious your injuries are after an accident, the value of your recovery often depends on having enough insurance to pay full value for your injuries.

  • In Florida, there is limited time to file a lawsuit after a car accident. If you wait too long to act, then you may lose your right to seek compensation. Contact us right away to help preserve the evidence and make sure your claim is timely filed.

  • Property damage is not required for a successful claim, but any photos of car damage are helpful in supporting your case.

What can you recover form an auto accident or other personal injury case?

If you were injured in an auto accident in Florida, you are entitled to get payment that attempts to “put you back in the place you were before your accident.” The law does not have a time machine, so all the legal system can do is give you money to compensate you for everything you went through as a result of your accident.

ECONOMIC DAMAGES

After an auto accident, you may have:

  • medical bills
  • lost wages
  • property damage
  • vocational rehabilitation
  • loss of earning capacity
  • household services
  • + other associated out-of-pocket costs

These are called economic damages. While this form of damages is simple to calculate, there are often many hidden costs which you have not considered, as well as future expenses necessary for your recovery.

NON-ECONOMIC DAMAGES

You may also be entitled to non-economic damages, such as:

  • pain and suffering
  • loss of enjoyment for life
  • worsening of prior injuries
  • humiliation
  • reputation damage
  • emotional trauma

These types of damages are often much more difficult to calculate, which is why it is advisable to speak with an Orlando car accident lawyer in order to determine the full value of your case.

Find out what YOU can recover

The first offer, and even the second, may be significantly less than what you deserve. Insurance companies often don’t provide their best offer until 4-6 rounds of settlement negotiations.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We know what you’re thinking: how much will it cost to hire a truck or car accident attorney in Orlando? personal injury firm like Bengal Law?

    Unlike other services or consumer goods, you should not shop for legal representation based solely on price. Instead, you should factor in years of experience, reputation, staff and prompt communication. There is no denying that legal services can be costly. In fact, many people choose not to hire an Orlando injury attorney because they believe it will be too expensive.

    At Bengal Law, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we are only paid if a favorable result is achieved in your case. In practical terms, this means that you do not owe any fees . Instead, we take a percentage of the financial recovery you receive through settlement or litigation.

    The benefit of contingency fees is two-fold. First, it allows individuals who may be unable to afford a lawyer’s hourly fees obtain legal representation and access to the court. Second, contingency fees put you and your attorney on the same team. We both want the same thing: to maximize your financial recovery. With contingency fee representation, your success is literally our success!

  • It is nearly impossible to predict how long any given case will take to fully resolve. In some situations, cases can be settled in a matter of months – especially when fault and losses can be clearly determined. In other situations, a case can last for years.

    There are many factors that we can control throughout the course of representation, such as the speed in which we conduct an investigation. However, there are also many factors that we cannot control, such as the duration of ongoing medical treatment you may need.

    Typically, our personal injury lawyers will spend months investigating your claim, collecting evidence, and building the best possible case. Once our investigation has concluded, we will then send a demand letter to the insurance company requesting compensation for your injuries. From there, we will negotiate a settlement with the insurance company. This can sometimes take several months as we communicate settlement offers to you and to the insurance company.

    If we are unable to achieve an acceptable settlement offer from the insurance company, we may then consider filing a lawsuit. Once a lawsuit is filed, we will begin pre-trial discovery, scheduling depositions, and scheduling possible mediations to resolve the matter. This process can take months, or even years, depending on the complexity of the case. Once a trial date is set, then litigation could last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of months. The timelines are dependent on the complexity of the case and the availability of a court date.

  • Choosing the best Orlando personal injury lawyer for your case is an important decision. You want to work with an accident attorney who will keep you informed throughout the process, explain the laws relevant to your case, and be there to support you in your time of need.

    You should also factor in years of experience, reputation, reviews, and track record of prompt communication. While it is important to make a careful decision, it is equally as important to act quickly. In every personal injury case, time is of the essence.
