Whether you are hurt in a car accident, a slip and fall, or another unfortunate situation, consulting an attorney is a wise decision. Good legal advice will help to maximize your monetary awards for your property damage and injuries.

Personal Injury attorneys only receive a fee if you are paid. That means that they have every incentive to maximize the awards for their clients. This is referred to as a contingency fee.

Although you may receive an offer to settle your case from an insurance company if you are hurt, there’s no way for you to know if that offer is fair or is adequate compensation for what you have been through.  Dealing with insurance companies is the last thing most people want to do while they are injured and have to go to many medical appointments.  A skilled attorney handles the negotiation of a claim with an insurance company and has the experience to assess what a claim is ‘worth’ in court. Even though an attorney takes a fee, a personal injury attorney can increase the value of the claim to make up for the fee they take.

A skilled attorney works with you to build evidence for your case. In addition to court filings, they work with medical professionals to detail injuries, witnesses to demonstrate facts showing fault and liability, and handle communications with defense counsel. A skilled personal injury attorney helps maximize your reward and minimize your stress in dealing with a personal injury claim.
