It depends on the nature of the accident and your injuries. We are here to help people, not make thing more complicated than they should be. If you are not injured in the accident, you likely only have a claim for the property damage to your car. Usually the property loss, be it a total loss or repair cost, can be negotiated between you and the insurance company without the need to bring in a lawyer.
Most car accident attorneys charge you a percentage of the total recovery as their fee – the industry standard is usually 1/3 of the total. We pride ourselves in not only helping people who need legal representation but also advising people when a lawyer is not necessary. If you have very minor injuries that did not require ongoing medical treatment or only had one or two doctor’s visits, it is unlikely that hiring an attorney will be worth the effort. We will let you know if we think your case or claim is better handled on your own.
When you or a loved one is severely injured in a car accident or miss significant time from work, you need to hire an attorney immediately to protect your rights and make sure that your interests are protected from the beginning of your claim and through to the final stages of recovery. It is difficult, if not impossible, for you to deal with your injuries, medical treatment, family, and the insurance companies all at once and get the compensation that you and your family deserve.
We always suggest that you contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible and schedule a consultation. Our consultations are free and we require no fee to meet with one of our attorneys. We put in the time to investigate your claim and determine a game plan for moving forward with your claim.
