Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney is More Affordable Than You Think
Although it’s an unpleasant topic to dwell on, all of us must remember there are various situations and settings in our daily lives where accidents can occur. An accident can happen on the road, at the store, at work, and virtually anywhere else.
You can minimize your chances of being injured in an avoidable accident by exercising caution throughout your day. However, even if you’re careful, you may be injured as a result of someone else’s negligence.
This experience may result in significant financial consequences. For example, your injuries might require medical treatment. You might not have funds set aside to pay for said treatment.
Your injuries could also keep you home from work for an extended period of time. During your recovery, you may be unable to earn an income. This will potentially add to your financial struggles.
You can seek compensation for such losses by filing an insurance claim or lawsuit. If your accident resulted from another party’s negligence, you can file a claim to collect from their insurance or file a lawsuit to seek damages in court if they’re uninsured or their insurer refuses to offer a proper settlement. If your accident occurred while you were working, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, even if your accident didn’t result from negligence.
It’s wise to enlist the help of a personal injury attorney when seeking compensation. A lawyer will understand how insurance companies attempt to minimize their own financial losses when victims file claims. Thus, an attorney has the expertise necessary to negotiate an appropriate settlement on your behalf.
You may nevertheless still be reluctant to hire one. Perhaps this is because you don’t believe you can afford a lawyer.
This is an understandable concern. However, it’s an unnecessary one.
Yes, You Can Afford a Personal Injury Attorney
At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, our Charlotte personal injury law firm handles such cases as:
- Car accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- …and more
During our initial consultation with a potential client, we review the details of a case to determine whether they’re eligible to recover financial compensation.
This initial consultation is free and confidential. If an attorney doesn’t offer a free consultation, you shouldn’t waste your time or money meeting with them.
After all, you can’t decide whether you wish to hire a lawyer until you’ve had a chance to evaluate your case with the said attorney. You shouldn’t take a financial risk when simply learning whether a particular lawyer is qualified to serve your needs.
If we agree to take on your case, we also won’t charge any upfront fees for our services. Instead, like many personal injury attorneys, we enter into a contingency fee agreement with a new client. Such an agreement is designed to ensure a client won’t pay any fees for our services unless we succeed in recovering compensation for them first.
In other words, if you don’t get paid, your lawyer doesn’t get paid. On the other hand, if you hire an attorney, surveys indicate your odds of arriving at a fair settlement with the insurance company will likely be greater.
