When you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, you may feel a bit lost. You are likely struggling to get back to your daily life while balancing healing from your accident, dealing with new disability, all while arguing with the insurance company and dodging calls from bill collectors. This is exactly where a personal injury attorney can help you. An attorney will be able to help act as an advocate and assist you in navigating your legal claim to get proper compensation.
Everyone deserves access to the law system, and that is why most personal injury attorneys offer their services on a contingency fee basis. This means the attorney fronts the legal fees and works for you with no money down. In repayment, they receive a portion of your settlement or judgment. The amount can vary from attorney to attorney but most attorneys ask to receive 30-40% of what you receive. If you don’t win, they don’t get paid. It allows injured parties to pursue those responsible without extensive financial resources.
Deal with Constant Communication
When you have been injured, you have to make a lot of phone calls. These phone calls can be intensely stressful and the wait times can make you want to pull your hair out. An experienced personal injury attorney knows exactly who to talk to at the insurance company to get the information you need to move forward with your claim.
Get Compensation Through Aggressive Representation
Sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail to get what you are entitled to. It is hard to fight when you are tired from injuries. An attorney can represent you and act on your behalf to demand proper compensation.
