You’re dealing with the physical and emotional pain that is part and parcel of an unexpected injury, and that can turn your entire life upside down. In even moderate injury-causing accident cases, victims often deal with daily pain that can damage their ability to perform everyday tasks, not to mention the emotional stress that comes with waiting to heal.
Unfortunately, the stress and anxiety usually does not end there. If you are hurt, you are probably dealing with medical expenses that your insurance (provided you have it) may or may not cover. In addition, your injury may prevent you from working, causing added financial stress due to missing out on weeks or even months of income.
Fortunately, the assistance of a skilled lawyer can ease the burden of the aftermath of a serious accident and allow you to focus on healing physically. An attorney will handle the lion’s share of the work that goes along with making sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
To help you focus on your physical and emotional well-being, a lawyer can handle the following on your behalf:
- Collecting and analyzing evidence that supports the assertion that your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence in the event that the other party contests your case
- Gathering and analyzing medical and other records to fully compensate all of your losses
- Attempting to negotiate a reasonable settlement with the insurance company
- If the insurance company refuses to offer an adequate settlement, filing a lawsuit on your behalf in the appropriate court
- Developing a trial strategy designed to maximize your chances of recovery
- Representing you at trial
How Much Will an Attorney Cost?
You may feel concerned about the costs associated with retaining an attorney after an accident, particularly if you are already dealing with medical expenses, lost income, and other accident-related losses. Typically, there is no up-front cost associated with retaining a personal injury lawyer, and you will only pay legal fees if your attorney successfully recovers a settlement or award on your behalf. Because of this arrangement (known as a contingent fee arrangement), there is no financial risk associated with meeting with an attorney to determine whether you have a claim—mor retaining one to represent you.
