Why Hire a Memphis Car Accident Lawyer?
After an accident, you have a lot to contend with: physical pain, sky-high medical bills, time away from work, and emotional distress. With all that going on, you may not know what to do or where to turn.
Here’s a fact you should know: On average, people who hire a personal injury attorney after a car accident recover three times as much compensation as those who pursue their own claim. Morgan & Morgan attorneys understand how to value a claim and negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company. If the insurance company is unwilling to negotiate in good faith, we aren’t afraid to present your case in front of a judge.
What’s more, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing upfront and we get paid only if your case is successful. So no matter your financial situation, we can help.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Without reviewing the details of your case, it’s difficult to say how much it will be worth. However, one thing is certain: Morgan & Morgan has a long track record of maximizing settlements and winning cases that go to trial. Over the course of 30-plus years, we’ve recovered more than $7 billion on behalf of injury victims like you. When we’ve gone to trial, we’ve recovered 20 times the pre-trial offer amounts.
What Is the Lawsuit Process?
For your claim to be successful, your attorney must establish that the other party is legally responsible for your injuries. A lot of work goes into proving that. Although every case is unique, they often unfold like this:
- Your lawyer will draft a complaint alleging what the defendant has done wrong and file it in court.
- Attorneys on each side will engage in discovery: the process of exchanging information about witnesses and evidence that may be presented at trial.
- A settlement may be reached before trial. Your attorney will help you decide whether you should accept the settlement you are offered.
- If a settlement is not reached, our legal team will present your case at trial. If we win, the defendant will be ordered to pay you a specific sum of money.
How Long Will My Case Take?
As you can see from the steps outlined above, personal injury cases are complex and involve numerous steps. This process can take months or even years to conclude, particularly if the insurance company stalls in an effort to wear you down. No matter what, it’s important that you refuse to settle for less than your case is worth. Our attorneys want to resolve your case as quickly as possible, but above all else, we want you to get the best possible outcome.
