There is no obligation that a person injured or hurt in an accident seek out a legal professional to represent them. However, many individuals choose to retain an attorney to defend their interests after an incident for two key reasons:
Insurance companies frequently attempt to impede accident victims from getting legal representation because they are aware of studies that conclude that people with a lawyer frequently obtain substantially more money for their settlement compared to people who settle their lawsuit without legal assistance.
Another reason why individuals retain an accident attorney is that there are regularly issues that come with injury litigation which need to be resolved in order to avoid settlement difficulties in the future.
Virtually every personal injury or wrongful death claim at NJ Injury Guys is handled on a “contingency fee” structure. Under a contingency fee arrangement, our legal fee is set forth in a prepared contract at the time we are hired by a client. Moreover, we only receive a fee when we are successful in obtaining a financial reward on your behalf. If there is no recovery, we do not charge a legal fee.
The value of a personal injury case is composed of both financial and non-economic damages. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages, and harm to property. Non-economic damages include pain and anguish, deformity, disfigurement, and loss of companionship or quality of life.
There are other factors that play into the value of a suit such as: the age of the injured or hurt person, the amount of insurance protection available and contributory fault resulting in the incident. While we must accept the facts in each case, our goal is to present the most advantageous case possible to a judge, jury or insurance company evaluating your case.
Most personal injury cases settle before a lawsuit is ever filed in a courthouse. At LAW FIRM, we never expect disputes to resolve effortlessly or quickly so we put together each case as if it may go to trial. From the time we are engaged in a case, we gather valuable evidence to establish how an incident materialized and how the conduct of various participants may have contributed to the incident. This often implies collecting police documents, witness statements, photographs of the scene and case histories and expenses.
How long a personal injury case takes to settle is typically a function of the intricacy of the dispute and how aggressive an attorney is with settlement dialogue and/or litigation. For example, a rear-end collision involving a trucking firm with straight forward medical treatment will probably resolve faster than a medical malpractice case involving multiple parties.
NJ Injury Guys understands the emotional and financial stress a case has on the individual and his or her family and works diligently to posture each case as best as possible. We are aggressive with our litigation and claims handling so each dispute can be resolved as quickly and as fairly as possible. The personal injury attorney assigned to your claim can give you a better time frame for resolution as all of the variables in play arise.
