Personal injury cases happen after some kind of accident which is not your fault, or at least, the majority is not your fault. Personal Injury cases can be considered after the following kind of accidents:
On the average, settlements and court awards for personal injury cases vary between $3,000 and $75,00 with an average of $52,900. These numbers are very dependent on the type of injury, your insurance limit, but more importantly, who you choose to represent you.
Let’s say you are in a car accident. The fault was not yours and it resulted in you losing several weeks of pay, medical bills in the amount of more or less $15,000, and you were in pain for most of those weeks, and you missed time with family and friends due to the injury. Injuries can be as small as bruises or as large as brain injuries. The point is without a lawyer filing a claim you are losing out on the money. If you are the person in the accident now $15,000 in debt, you are entitled to get out of the debt as it was not your fault. It has been suggested that those who choose not to make a personal injury come out significantly less than someone who has hired a lawyer to make claim or threaten to make a claim. About $60,000 less.
First, when you are injured you want to keep as much documented as possible: pictures, videos, and/or witness statements. All this is evidence that a lawyer can use to help provide specifics for your case. More than likely the party you are suing will offer a settlement. Only about 4-5 % of cases actually go to trail. This is important because our Personal Injury Attorneys understand that trial is really stressful. We are in and out of courts all day, so we are comfortable and confident; we know that you aren’t and we want to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident the whole time you work with us.
When you are a new client, who has never sought legal help, we understand that the process may look intimidating. We are here to help you because we are on your side. Depending on your situation, it is more than likely that you will be offered a settlement and court fees will not be in your future. Not a guarantee, but probable. And remember, we don’t get paid until you get paid. This is incentive enough to ensure that we give you the best representation possible.
