After a car crash, what’s at stake? Simply put: your future. If someone injures you in a car crash, what could happen if you don’t get a lawyer? It could have tragic ripple effects for years to come.
There are lots of reasons why hiring a lawyer after a car wreck can be a good idea. Let’s focus on one.
The person that hurt you, their insurance company is going to have an army of lawyers in addition to their insurance adjuster working to see that you get as little compensation as possible. They’re good at it too. After a car crash, innocent injured people that don’t hire a lawyer get up to 3.5x less than people who get a good lawyer.
What does that mean in real life? It can mean that you don’t get the money you need to pay for your medical bills. It can mean that you never get compensated for the months of physical therapy you did. It can mean that the back pain you hoped would go away but never does will go uncompensated or under-compensated.
That doesn’t sit well with us. It’s not right or fair. That’s why we fight for injured people.
People that cause you harm should be held accountable. The system just happens to be stacked in their favor. That’s where we come in. A good lawyer can help balance the scale and give you the best chance to get what you deserve.
Remember, A good injury lawyer will work on a contingency fee basis. This means they only get paid if they win compensation for you. You never need to pay anything out of pocket. The lawyer is paid a percentage of what they recover for you. They will also recoup any expenses they may have paid out on your behalf.
