Do I need a lawyer to help me on my personal injury claim?
Although you can handle a personal injury claim on your own, it is not advisable. Combining the insurance, medical and legal industries into one is the recipe for disaster. You need to focus on healing, on surviving. You can’t afford to be worried about handling every issue that will come up, in an area you really have no relevant experience in. Sure you will have to share some of your settlement with your attorney but in the end, you will be happy you did because you will have the peace of mind that your claim was handled properly and that you truly received the maximum compensation you could. And in our experience, even after paying your lawyer a percentage of your settlement, in the vast majority of the cases, you still come out ahead of those who handle their personal injury claims on their own.
How much is my case worth?
This is the number one question we get from prospective clients. And our standard answer is that it depends. A good rule of thumb is that the more injured you are the more your settlement should be. But there are so many factors that play into a case’s value, ie. permanency of the injury, how the injuries affect your employment future, cost of provable future medical expenses, etc. Ultimately a case is worth what a jury would award you if your case continues all the way to trial. Since most cases settle before trial both your lawyer and insurance adjuster handling your case will try to figure out what a jury might do with your set of facts and settle it within that range. We know that it is frustrating that you cannot tell what a case is worth from the outset, but focus on healing and getting better quickly. Hire your choice in lawyer and have confidence in him/her to do what you hired them to do.
