How much does a personal injury lawyer charge? Will my accident case take long? Should I give a recorded statement to the insurance adjusters calling me? These are some of the commonly asked questions after an accident, and if you have never been in an accident before, or this is your first time seeing if you have a personal injury case, then its good to do some research before you make any decisions.
For starters, our top recommendation is that you seek a personal injury lawyer for your accident case to help you through a maze of difficult situations that you are likely to encounter, reason being that we do our best to try to obtain compensation for your case. For example, if you were in a car accident, you may think it’s easier to go through the insurance companies, but in fact, insurance companies make low offers and most people accept what they are offered because they don’t have anyone to advise them of whether or not the offer is good for their case (which the majority of the time it’s not).
We don’t charge for our services unless we are able to get a successful recovery for your case. If we obtain a successful result, a percentage of the settlement will cover our costs and fees. On average, personal injury cases take at least 9 months, however, it actually depends on a lot of factors including your injuries, how well you recovered, and other factors as well. If a lawsuit is filed, the case can take much longer.
If you have been in car accident and insurance adjusters are calling you, it’s best not to speak with them until you have attorney representation. If you choose to talk to them, do not give them a recorded statement because you might say something that can potentially harm your case. If we decide to take your case, we will assist you with the recorded statement, which is just one of the many services we provide.Accident in Parkland
