There is no requirement that an injured individual injured in an accident seek an attorney to defend him or her. However, many individuals choose to retain an attorney to represent their rights after being injured for 2 main reasons:
1) Not the knowledge in the area of personal injury law, and
2) To be able to concentrate on recovering physically after an accident.
Insurance companies often try to discourage personal injury victims from getting a legal representative because they know from studies that show that people who hire an attorney consistently receive substantially higher compensation for their claim as opposed to those who settle their cases on their own.
Another reason people hire an attorney is that there are often problems that arise after the claim that can make it difficult to pay financial compensation.
Virtually all personal injury or wrongful death claims at Justice Guardians are made on a contingency fee basis.
In a contingency fee arrangement, our legal fees are signed in a written document the instant we are retained by a client. This payment structure is based on the principle that we only get paid when we obtain a financial settlement on your behalf. If there is no settlement, no fee is charged.
The value of a personal injury case consists of both monetary and non-monetary damages or losses. Financial damages consist of medical bills, lost income and property damage. Non-financial damages include pain and suffering, impairment of physical condition, disfigurement and lack of companionship or reduced quality of life.
There are other factors that affect the value of a claim such as the age of the injured party, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the shared fault that caused the accident.
While we must assume the facts in each case, the goal is to present the most favorable case to the judge, jury, or insurance company evaluating your claim.
Many personal injury cases are settled without a lawsuit being filed in court. At Justice Guardians, we never believe that legal claims are settled simply or quickly, so we work every matter as if it will go to trial.
From the very moment you hire us for a case, we collect important evidence to establish how an accident took place and how the behavior of one or more individuals or groups may have influenced the accident. This includes collecting official documents, witness statements, photographs of the scene and even medical reports and invoices for all expenses.
