What To Be Aware Of When Retaining An Injury Attorney

One of the facts of life is that accidents can happen unpredictably at any time and serious injuries could be incurred as a result of this. Whenever they cause emotional and physical harm that results in serious financial consequences due to some other corporation’s or person’s negligence, getting compensated for those injuries becomes a necessity. If an injury is serious enough, it could result in life-changing consequences for the individual and be financially devastating as well. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it may be time to hire an injury attorney to help you with your case.

What You Stand to Gain

When you consider that tens of thousands of individuals are injured annually due to negligent behavior, you can understand why so many of them seek out the expertise of an attorney that has an extensive knowledge of personal injury law. Aside from getting immediate medical attention when the injury occurs, you want to contact an attorney or have a family member do so if you have been seriously hurt and are unable to contact one. The sooner you can get that injury attorney involved in your case, the better your chances will be of winning your court case and being compensated fairly.

Attorney Compensation

Many attorneys that handle personal injury cases work on a contingency basis meaning that they will be paid when the case is settled and the client is awarded compensation for damages. It will usually involve a percentage of those financial damages and the amount of their fees is usually between 30% and 40% of the amount that is awarded to the client. However, those percentages will vary from one state to the next. If the attorney loses in court or feels that there will be no settlement, they won’t receive a fee. Regardless, the client is still responsible for paying court fees and other costs.

Common Misconceptions

It is unfortunate, but the nickname “ambulance chaser” gets bandied around a lot whenever the subject of a discussion is personal injury lawyers. They have received this label unjustly because of those amateurs who solicit injury victims. This is not the case where an experienced injury attorney is concerned as they do not have to solicit their clients.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
