The decision to hire a personal injury lawyer
Some accidents may result in severe injuries, and the services of a personal injury lawyer may be the only option to help offset these costs. Following a serious accident, victims have to deal with financial burdens such as medical bills, hospitalization costs, missing work, and lost wages. Due to the seriousness of these problems, it’s important to only trust a law firm with decades of experience and a stellar reputation. Morgan & Morgan receives thousands of referrals from other lawyers, doctors, and even judges. For over 30 years, we’ve recovered more than $5 billion and have a proven track record of winning on behalf of our clients.
What exactly does a personal injury lawyer do?
Most personal injury cases follow the format of either a negligence action or an intentional tort. Meaning, another person or business either didn’t exercise reasonable care or intentionally did something wrong, resulting in injuries. Your lawyer may collect evidence through conversations with those present during the incident, pictures and videos of the area, medical records, or anything else relevant. As this process continues, the responsible party may choose to settle the case and pay an amount that both parties agree to. Or, there may be a trial to determine if the defendant should pay damages or not. At Morgan & Morgan, we never settle for less than the full compensation you deserve. Some lawyers are ‘jacks of all trades.’ However, we only focus on personal injury and know how much your injury is worth.
Paying for an attorney
After an accident, some of the most common questions people have are about their ability to pay for legal services. The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan work on a contingency fee. Meaning, we never charge by the hour, and there are no upfront costs – we only get paid if we win for you. The money we receive comes from a percentage of the settlement or judgment we obtain on your behalf. In the event that you receive no compensation, you don’t owe us a dime.
