A person who has suffered a catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury likely knows that their injury is serious enough to warrant working with a personal injury attorney. However, at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we have found that when the injuries are less serious, potential clients are not sure if it is worth working with an attorney.
The good news is that it’s easy to get an answer: Just call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000. Your consultation is both free and confidential. If you do have grounds for a case, and we decide to take it on, we will do so on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay us if we win your case. As you can imagine, we do not take on cases unless we believe they have strong merit. There is nothing to lose by calling us to find out if your injury warrants working with an attorney.
An Attorney Can Help Determine Who Was at Fault, Costs, and Expenses
One of the reasons to work with an attorney is because we can help determine who was at fault. You may have on recollection of the accident but others involved may have another. In the end, it does not matter who was really at fault – it only matter what you can prove. We can assess the evidence to determine who was at fault and who can be held accountable.
Once we have determined that one party was negligent in the accident, we can put a monetary value on your damages. This will including costs such as medical care and lost wages, as well as noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering. Because we take cases on a contingency basis, we also handle the upfront expenses of court filings, hiring expert witnesses, etc.
We Will Deal with the Insurance Company on Your Behalf
First, the insurance company is likely to work to show that their customer was not at fault for the accident. Once it has been made clear that they are at fault, or are likely at fault, the insurance adjuster will try to settle the case for as little as possible. They may tell you that you do not need an attorney. They may tell you that they are offering a standard payment for the injuries you suffered. They may be nice. They may seem to have your best interests in mind.
They do not. Their job is to reduce settlements so that their employer improves the bottom line of the company. If you want someone to be on your side the way the at-fault party has their insurance adjuster on their side, then you need a personal injury attorney. Contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 now for your free legal consultation.
