Personal Injury Lawyer = WINNING
When you get in an accident, many hardships can arise including car damages, bodily damages, missed work, pain and suffering, etc. The last thing you want to worry about is hiring a personal injury lawyer but the first thing you worry about is how you are going to recover from the damages of the accident when really, all you should be worrying about is moving forward with your daily life!
Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney will allow you to do just that. The best part is: there are no upfront attorney fees! Personal injury attorneys only get compensated after they settle your case. Their standard fee is 1/3 of the money awarded at settlement without going to trial so it is in your attorney’s interest to get you as much compensation as possible! A good personal injury lawyer will be able to negotiate down your medical bill and negotiate up the money awarded to you from (hopefully the other party’s) insurance company. All you have to do is sit back, *relax*, and wait for the cash to roll in.
- Don’t admit fault to anything.
- Take pictures of the accident scene, tags, damages to the car, licenses.
- Collect contact information for any witnesses.
- Immediately contact your attorney to find out what the next steps are.
If you feel any pain at the time of the accident, you should immediately schedule a doctor appointment to have your potential injuries examined. This will help your case during negotiations with the insurance company. If you are hesitant about the incurring medical costs, a good personal injury attorney will be able to refer you to a doctor who has agreed to collect payment after the settlement of your case.
