Do you believe that someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to your injury? If so, you might be looking to find a personal injury attorney who handles the type of case in which you are involved. Sometimes, people are not sure when they can or cannot sue the at-fault party. Personal injury attorneys are always happy to sit down with you and talk about your situation, even when you might not necessarily have a case against another party.
Legitimate personal injury attorneys do not charge you upfront fees to take on your case. Instead, we file a lawsuit on your behalf and take a cut of any settlement or jury verdict that you receive. If we do not win your case, you do not have to pay us. That is simply how personal injury claims work.
If you are injured, the last thing you want to worry about is filing a claim or a lawsuit against an at-fault party. You may have insurance companies that are trying to get a hold of you. When you hire a personal injury attorney to handle your claim, all communications between adversary counsel and insurance claims adjusters are directed to your personal injury lawyer. That means that you do not have to deal with any of it. You can just sit back and focus on your recovery.
Generally, insurance companies will offer you as little as they can get away with. You are in a negotiation. Personal injury lawyers understand how that negotiation works and how to leverage insurance companies into paying out the full value of your claim. We also protect our clients from being blamed for accidents that they were involved with and ensure that they are compensated fairly for the full breadth of their injuries.
The more serious your injuries are, the more it will hurt your finances. Not only might you require surgery, rehabilitation, and a protracted period of recovery, but you will be missing time from work while bills are piling up. Going into serious debt is a common consequence of a serious injury. Now add to that the fact that the injury is not your fault. Why should you be the one going into debt because of someone else’s negligence? Obviously, you should not be.
