When you or a loved one suffers from an injury due to another’s actions or negligence, you want to be compensated for the pain, suffering, and costs associated with an accident. Most would assume that the insurance agency or the guilty party would offer a fair settlement for your suffering, but this doesn’t always happen. Insurance companies are very reluctant to offer anything close to a fair settlement. Therefore, it is only natural to turn to the assistance of a personal injury attorney.
But, hiring a personal injury attorney is only half the battle. You need to hire an expert personal injury law firm that knows personal injury laws and has a proven track record related to your injury case. While you may find the fees are higher, hiring an attorney is much like anything else in life: You get what you pay for.
In most cases, you’ll find personal injury lawyer accept cases on a contingency basis. That means they only get paid if you receive a settlement. Then, the attorney accepts a percentage of that settlement as their fee. Some law firms accept as little as 20 percent, while others go much higher. But, the contingency percentage should not be the only factor you use to determine whether or not to hire a law firm.
Law firms have low contingency percentages, but in return, they negotiate lower, faster settlements with insurance companies and third parties. That means you are not receiving the compensation you could have received because the firm is in a hurry to settle, collect, and move on.
Experienced personal injury law firms have competitive contingency percentages. While they may seem as though they take a lot of your settlement, these firms often double or triple the settlement amounts of competing contingency firms. This could mean that victims see a higher settlement by paying a higher percentage.
It’s not just a higher settlement that matters. Experienced firms offer an array of benefits, including:
