ACCIDENT ATTORNEY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What do accident attorneys do?
An accident attorney provides legal representation to you if you claim to have been injured as a result of negligence or wrongdoing by another person, business, government agency or other entity.
Why hire an accident attorney? When to hire an accident attorney?
If you have been in an accident that resulted in injury or monetary loss an accident attorney can help you go up against the negligent party, their insurance companies and their lawyers. Your accident attorney knows the laws and procedures to handle your legal issues and acts as your advocate throughout the case. If you have suffered severe injuries, faced expensive medical bills, or have experienced loss of wages due to an accident, it is time to hire an accident attorney.
How to hire an accident attorney?
When choosing an accident attorney look for a lawyer who focuses on personal injury accidents. Ensure they have experience representing clients who have suffered personal injuries specific to your type of case whether it is a car accident or a slip and fall injury. Search online by an attorney’s name and firm to see what others are saying and if there have been complaints. Once you hire an accident attorney, evaluate your comfort level in communicating with the attorney and take into consideration how they treat your case. If you feel your lawyer is not available to you or doesn’t return your calls in a timely manner, and you feel uneasy about their ability to add your case to their caseload it may be time to hire a new attorney.
How to find an accident attorney?
When in need of an accident attorney look for someone who has experience handling your type of accident claim. Look to friends and acquaintances who have been represented by a lawyer in their own accident cases for referral. Also, you can ask for referrals of lawyers you know who have other areas of expertise. If you don’t have a source for referrals, you can use referral services and online directories to search for a list of accident lawyers near you who specialize in accident cases.
How do accident attorneys get paid?
Most accident attorneys accept cases on a contingency fee basis. That means if you win your case, your attorney takes a percentage of the settlement amount that has been paid. Accident attorneys work hard to make sure their clients get fair and reasonable settlements, and their contingency fee is reflective of the amount of work that the lawyer needs to put into your case. You only pay the contingency fee if your lawyer wins the case, but you are still liable for additional fees that are clearly outlined before or immediately after your case is accepted. Some accident attorneys also work on retainer which is a financial agreement where you pay upfront.
