Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
When you’ve been injured, the right representation can be the difference between recovering the compensation you deserve and receiving a tiny fraction of what you need to put your life back together — or worse, nothing at all.
The lawyer you hire needs to have the experience and resources to investigate your case thoroughly and take your case to trial if an acceptable settlement cannot be reached. With Morgan & Morgan, you get the best of both worlds: the resources of America’s largest personal injury firm, and the personal attention of a small, family-owned organization. We treat every case like our most important one, and we won’t rest until you are satisfied with the results.
You don’t want to go up against an insurance company alone. You need an experienced attorney in your corner who will advocate and fight for you.
How are Personal Injury Damages Determined?
An attorney will review medical records and other important data to calculate the total cost of your injury. These amounts vary greatly depending on the case, but personal injury claims typically seek to recover some or all of the following damages:
- Medical costs, including hospital bills
- Lost income
- Property damage
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in cases of wrongful death)
It’s important to remember that in most cases, insurance companies and corporations are not on your side. They work to protect their bottom line, not your health or wellbeing. That’s why you need an experienced attorney with the skills, resources, and willingness to fight for everything that you’re owed.
How Much Does an Attorney Cost?
Less than you think. It costs nothing upfront to hire us because we work on a contingency basis. That means we only receive a fixed percentage of the settlement or award at trial. The size of your bank account or paycheck has no bearing on your ability to seek justice.
If we don’t reach a favorable settlement or win your case at trial, you pay nothing. That’s right: We don’t get paid unless you do.
