Why Hire a Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer?
Physical pain and emotional stress are likely only part of what you’re dealing with after an accident. Chances are, you need to figure out how to pay your medical bills and other expenses, too. This can be particularly troubling if you’re unable to work because of your condition.
You may be on the fence about hiring a personal injury lawyer, but auto accident victims generally benefit from this decision. In fact, the average person wins triple the amount of compensation when they hire an attorney to handle their case.
There are several advantages to hiring a Morgan & Morgan attorney to do the job. First, we understand how to value a settlement: If the insurance company doesn’t make a fair offer, we have the experience to recognize that and ask for more. Second, our attorneys are expert negotiators with a long history of recovering favorable settlements. Finally, in the event that the insurance company refuses to negotiate fairly, we have the resources and fearlessness to win at trial.
Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You might be worried that, because you’re in a tough spot financially, you can’t afford a lawyer. However, Morgan & Morgan attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means we get paid only when you recover compensation, whether that’s through a settlement or verdict. The money we earn never comes out of your pocket, but rather out of the winnings we obtain for you.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Because every case is unique, there’s no formula for valuing a personal injury claim. The total compensation you may receive will depend on the nature of the injury, the circumstances surrounding the accident, and other various factors. However, you can rest assured knowing that Morgan & Morgan has your back. To date, we’ve recovered more than $7 billion on behalf of injury victims.
What Is the Lawsuit Process Like?
Generally, a personal injury lawsuit proceeds like this:
- Your attorney will collect and evaluate all pertinent evidence, then draft a complaint describing the incident and the losses you incurred.
- After filing the complaint in court, your attorney will exchange information with the defense (known as discovery).
- The defendant may offer a settlement, which you and your attorney will evaluate.
- If the settlement offer is insufficient, your attorney will present your case in front of a judge.
- If you win, the defendant will be directed to pay you a specific sum of money.
How Long Will My Case Take?
Due to their complexity, personal injury cases can take months or even years to complete, particularly if the insurance company draws out the process in hopes you’ll get impatient and settle. Our attorneys don’t cave to the pressure applied by the insurance company. We’re skilled negotiators and litigators who are dedicated to resolving your case quickly, but above all else, achieving the best outcome for you.
