How Can an Attorney Help After an Accident?
Once you’ve filed a claim with your insurance provider, they’ll begin their review of your accident to determine what compensation you’ll be awarded based on your injuries. In many cases, this goes smoothly, and you receive your full restitution in a timely manner. However, some insurance providers will attempt to diminish your compensation or deny it altogether because they don’t believe the severity of the situation. By teaming up with an attorney, you can navigate around the unethical insurance provider and fight for what you’re entitled to.
An experienced attorney will have seen your case before and can use their knowledge to guide you towards a favorable outcome for your case. Not only that, but they will handle the majority of the legal proceedings and allow you some much-needed time to recover.
Are Attorneys Expensive?
You might have heard that acquiring representation is an expensive task, and in most cases, that would be true. Other firms will charge high rates for their service, but not us. We firmly believe that everyone should be able to afford an attorney after a traumatic experience, which is why our team operates on a contingency. When you team up with Morgan & Morgan, our fee comes out of the favorable settlement or jury award, so you never have to pay out-of-pocket for our assistance.
What Damages Can I Expect to Recover?
The damages you’ll recover will depend on the circumstances of your case, but here are a few common damages sought after an accident:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Punitive damages (if applicable)
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional damages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Funeral expenses (in the case of wrongful death)
It can be difficult to advocate for the severity of your situation in the face of a large insurance provider. Our Pittsburgh attorneys have a proven track record of recovering the full extent of damages across all our practice areas, and we’re prepared to offer you the same result.
