How can a personal injury attorney help me after I have been injured?
Some people ask themselves, “Why do I need to hire a personal injury attorney after my auto accident?” There are many benefits to hiring a lawyer to help you get compensation for your injuries, including the following:
- Experience with personal injury cases: Are you aware of how insurance companies work or what the law says with regard to personal injury claims? Do you know all the different kinds of damages for which you can request compensation? If you aren’t a lawyer, you probably do not have enough knowledge about these and other issues pertaining to personal injury law. This could put you at a distinct disadvantage.
- The knowledge and skill to negotiate a fair settlement: How do you know whether the amount of money the insurance company is offering you is a fair amount for your injuries? What if there was a wrongful death in the accident? Are you familiar with the tactics that insurance companies use to pay out as little as possible on a claim? Do you know how to negotiate with insurance companies? If not, you might consider working with an experienced attorney who is a skilled negotiator and who knows how to work with the insurance companies to seek fair compensation for you.
- Competent representation in court: If you need to try your case in court because the insurance company is disputing your claim, how will you represent yourself? Our personal injury attorneys are formidable litigators who know how to present your case in court. We will carefully and aggressively handle your matter.
How much does it cost to hire a lawyer after an accident?
Most people have the idea that hiring an attorney is just too expensive to even consider. They don’t know how much a personal injury lawyer costs and are not quite sure what an attorney could do for them. All this uncertainty makes them reluctant to contact an attorney to represent them after an injury. But if they knew that their chances of getting a fair settlement are better if they hire a lawyer, they might not be so hesitant.
Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay us only if we win your case. We have a strong commitment to working hard for our clients. Because we only get paid if we win, we have a significant incentive to get the fairest settlement possible for you.
