Should You Consult With A Car Accident Lawyer?
If you were injured in a car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident the answer to this question is almost always yes. This is true even if you were partially at fault. Insurance companies, even your own, are known for employing the “three D’s” when it comes to traffic accident claims: DELAY, DENY, DEFEND. They will go to great lengths to delay processing and paying on your claim; they do everything possible to deny your claim; and they defend against your claim all the way to trial and appeal. This scheme, of course, is designed to maximize the insurance company’s profits.
Hiring an accident attorney is wise as it levels the playing field. The amount of compensation you will get from a car accident will usually be significantly more when you are represented by a car accident attorney than if you were handling your case on your own. One of the first things an insurance company does is offer a “nuisance” settlement offer as quickly as possible. A “nuisance” settlement offer is basically a nominal amount of money (e.g., $500) that benefits them and not you. It is to appease you for your trouble. It never truly covers the bodily injury portion of your claim but may include the insurance company paying for a medical bill or two at a reduced rate. In these scenarios insurance adjusters are trained to settle claims for as little as possible and as quickly as possible before the involvement of an attorney.
What Do Car Accident Lawyers Charge?
Our LGBTQ+ auto accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they only get paid when they’re able to get a settlement from the insurance company for your case or when a jury awards a verdict in your favor. You won’t pay our gay injury attorneys if they lose your case. This is great news for anyone who has been injured in a car accident and doesn’t have the funds to pay a lawyer up front for their services. Case expenses such as court filing fees are usually deducted out of the client’s portion of the settlement. The settlement example below will give you an idea on how settlement funds may be distributed in a car accident injury case.
