If you have been injured in an accident, you may find yourself wondering whether hiring an attorney is really necessary? Do you really need an attorney to help you obtain a settlement for your injuries, or is your case simple enough that you can handle it on your own? How much is your auto accident case really worth? If you have suffered any sort of injury, most of the time your recovery will be greater if you are represented by a competent personal injury attorney. However, in certain cases, you may be able to handle your car accident case on your own. Regardless, making this determination should be done by an experienced attorney. At our firm, all of inquiries and consultations are free and all cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This simply means there are absolutely no fees if we do not recover money for your case.
Get Full and Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
The American Bar Association recommends that seeking legal counsel is a good idea after any accident that results in serious injury. The Insurance Research Counsel conducted a study and found that people who were represented by an attorney received on average 3.5 more monetary compensation than those who handled personal injury claims on their own. As a general rule, if there are injuries involved, you will probably benefit from the representation of an auto accident lawyer. Contact our firm to talk to an attorney regarding the facts of your auto accident case and determine if you should take your next steps alone, or with the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Proving Your Case
To be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, you must demonstrate that the other party was responsible for the accident. It is not uncommon for the other party’s insurance company to deny liability and even suggest that you were responsible. Our auto accident attorneys work with experienced investigators to determine who was responsible for your injuries and to what extent. The preservation of evidence and gathering of witness statements is vital to demonstrating the other party’s responsibility and recovering the maximum compensation for your injuries, or a family member’s wrongful death.
