Do I Really Need an Attorney or Why Can't I Just Handle It Myself?
People who handle personal injury claims on their own recover 2-3 times less money than those represented by counsel, according to an Allstate Claims Manual. No wonder that the insurance companies love it when people represent themselves. A personal injury case can involve complex and critical legal issues, such as subrogation, coverage issues, uninsured and underinsured claims, policy limit issues, and releases. Most importantly, do-it-yourselfers just won’t have the experience to know the value of their case. Remember, the insurance company’s job is to pay out as little money as possible to injured parties—they will act in their best interest, not yours.
What Do You Charge?
There is no fee for the initial consultation. There is no hourly fee. The fee is based upon a percentage of the amount recovered. If there is no recovery, there will be no fee. A written fee agreement will be prepared and reviewed with you prior to our being hired to represent you.
