After being injured in an accident, many people are unfamiliar with the process to seek compensation for their injuries and do not know the steps that should be taken to preserve their claim. The time following a personal injury accident can be very stressful. Often, victims have been out of work due to their injuries, bills being to accumulate, and large financial decision need to be made, such as what to do about the medical bills and car repair costs, all while trying to get life back on track. These factors lead some people to believe that they simply cannot afford a personal injury attorney to fight for their claim.
Dangers of Handling Your Own Personal Injury Claim
Although it is possible to handle a personal injury case yourself, it is not advisable. Because most people are not knowledgeable about personal injury law and not experienced in dealing with insurance companies, representing yourself can potentially mean no recovery at all or settling for far less money than you would have obtained with a personal injury attorney. Statements made by the victim to the insurance company, even innocent statements of fact, are too often used by insurance companies to deny or devalue claims.
We Only Get Paid if You Do
From working with numerous personal injury victims, we know that the time following an accident can be incredibly hard and many individuals will not have the available funds to pay an attorney up-front. Therefore, we offer free consultations, and we charge a contingency fee, which means that we only get paid an attorney fee if we settle your claim or win a favorable judgment at trial. Because of this method, we are able to provide skilled legal representation for those who thought they would not have been able to hire a dedicated personal injury attorney.
