Free & fast case evaluation
A personal injury attorney usually will only collect a fee if he or she wins you the money to pay for the care you need. That fee will not come out of the money you need to pay your doctor or physical therapist.In most cases, your case winnings will not only cover your medical and legal expenses, but also include compensation for pain and suffering – and that is yours to keep. You really have nothing to lose by hiring a lawyer to represent you, and the lawyer will ensure you don’t make mistakes that could cost you your case. Insurance companies don’t like dealing with lawyers because lawyers know all of their tactics.
You may think that a small car accident isn’t worth getting a lawyer involved, but you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by seeking professional guidance. Even small car crashes can lead to whiplash injury, loss of work, and inability to continue with your everyday activities. But if you speak to an insurance company representative before you consult with a lawyer, they could lead you to make a statement that will harm your case.Most lawyers will talk to you for free to help you determine whether you can benefit from their services, and give you some free advice on what to say when dealing with insurance companies. Chances are that if you are hurt, hiring a top lawyer can only help your case.
Usually, a personal injury lawyer will take one-third of your final settlement offer as compensation for their work. For example, a settlement of $10,000 would result in a $3,333 payment to your lawyer and $6,667 for you to take home. Lawyers who work on contingency only get paid if they win you money. Your attorney’s fees will never prevent you from paying for your medical bills or other accident-related necessities, and by hiring an attorney you increase your chances of getting a higher settlement offer than you could alone.
You don’t need anything at all before contacting a lawyer.That said, the more information you have about the Who, What, When, and Where of the accident, the better. How did the accident occur? Who was at fault? Did you see if and how they were distracted? Did they admit it was their fault at the scene? Was it a multi-car collision? Who witnessed the accident? Any information you have on your injuries or the medical attention you’ve received is also helpful.If the accident was a hit and run (and you’re the one who was hit), you won’t have much more information than the make, model, and license plate number of the car – if you’re lucky. In that case, you may want to consult your insurance company about Uninsured Motorist coverage.
You can negotiate your own personal injury claim; there’s no law that says you have to hire a lawyer. But first, know that hiring a lawyer to defend your best interests won’t cost you anything out of pocket, and will save you a ton of time and aggravation.Lawyers in the state of Florida are paid by receiving a percent of the money they are able to bring in on a case. Additionally, the lawyers will front the cost of the case until they are reimbursed from the recovery. If you choose to pursue with your own case you will be responsible for the initial cost which would likely cost you more money than hiring an attorney.Insurance companies are aware that individuals do not have the training or the legal skill necessary to file a lawsuit and try a case to a successful conclusion and as a result will offer a significantly lower amount of money to someone trying to negotiate their own claim. I have personally handled cases that were worth $60,000 to $100,000 that individual’s settled for only $500 to $1000 on their own.Without the legal skill and training you may not accurately understanding the value of your case which is why it is best to hire a lawyer to handle your case or claim. If you still want to negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company yourself, start by reading all the articles on this blog – we have great advice about insurance adjuster tactics and what documentation you need to prove your case.
