How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

If you've been injured due to another party's negligence, an experienced personal injury attorney will do the following:

  • Gather evidence to establish liability.
  • Document your damages.
  • Find relevant expert witnesses.
  • Protect you from unscrupulous insurance companies that want to diminish the value of your case.
  • Advise you on steps you can take to protect your right to compensation.
  • Provide regular case updates and answer any questions you may have.
  • Try to negotiate a fair settlement.
  • Go to court, if necessary and desired.
  • Negotiate a reduction of your medical expenses to maximize the value of your settlement.
  • Settle and pay all liens against your case, such as those for past medical bills.

Understanding Contingency Fee Agreements

It's a common concern among injured persons that an attorney is unaffordable when they are faced with high medical bills and absence from work. However, personal injury attorneys accept cases on a contingency fee basis. This means your attorney will ask for a percentage of the settlement you receive as the fee for legal services. This allows you to obtain quality representation with no upfront cost.
