My boyfriend and I were both injured in a motorcycle accident here in Alexandria, LA. A car hit us and we were thrown off of the bike. I think I need help, but I’ve never hired a personal injury lawyer before. I’m worried that it will cost a lot of money. In injury case settlements, how much do I have to give to my lawyer?
I’m so sorry to hear that you were injured in a motorcycle wreck. Getting hit by a car on a motorcycle can be especially scary and dangerous because you do not even have the protection of a vehicle around you.
Hiring a personal injury lawyer is absolutely worth the money.
It costs you nothing up front. We only get paid when you do. Our firm is able to cover the investigative costs of your case, which can be significant. That includes paying for the police report, any medical records, and even private investigators. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to secure a settlement for you, you will owe us nothing – that includes any money we have spent in the course of building your case.
The lawyer fee is calculated as a percentage of the total cash settlement of the case.
Whether the settlement is zero dollars, a thousand dollars, $10,000, or $100,000 or more. The percentage stays the same.
So what can a personal injury lawyer do for you?
Lots of things, but let’s focus on just a couple.
First of all, we can get you set up with any medical treatment you may need. Some doctors will refuse to see you when they hear you have been injured in an auto wreck. We will make sure you get the attention you require. If you need any special testing, that can costs hundreds or thousands of dollars, and payment is often required in advance. We can pay that up front.
A personal injury lawyer will also be able to negotiate the best settlement possible for you. Insurance companies often try to throw a thousand bucks at you to make you go away. A lawyer will be able to evaluate your case on the merits, give you advice about what your case is really worth, and if necessary take the insurance company to court. It is that sort of expertise that a personal injury lawyer can bring to your case.
Hiring a personal injury lawyer shows the insurance company that you mean business. We would love the opportunity to represent you and your boyfriend for the injuries you suffered due to someone else’s carelessness.
