Why Hire a Tallahassee Car Accident Lawyer?
If you’re on the fence about hiring a personal injury lawyer to handle your auto accident case, here’s a statistic you ought to consider: On average, car crash victims who hire an attorney win three times as much compensation as those who pursue their own case.
The fact is, insurance providers often deny claims and make lowball settlement offers to protect their bottom line. Our attorneys understand how to counter their tactics. We will:
- Investigate the cause of your injury
- Gather critical evidence in support of your claim
- Apply our decades of experience in valuing your claim
- Demonstrate the severity of the injury and its short- and long-term effects
- Negotiate with the defendant’s insurance provider
- Prepare your case for trial if the insurance company doesn’t offer a fair settlement
Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning it costs nothing to get started, and we get paid only if your case is successful.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
The amount of compensation you stand to recover will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the injury and circumstances surrounding the accident. No matter what, there are a couple of things you can count on:
- The insurance company will try to pay you the least amount of money possible
- You shouldn’t settle for less than your claim is worth
Over the span of 30-plus years, Morgan & Morgan attorneys have recovered more than $7 billion for injury victims like you. When we’ve gone to trial, we’ve recovered 20 times more than what the defense has offered. Let us fight on your behalf to secure a favorable settlement or verdict.
How Long Will My Case Take?
A lot of work goes into proving that someone is legally responsible for your injuries. Although every case is unique, they often involve the following steps:
- Your attorney will draft and file a complaint alleging what the defendant has done wrong, along with a suggested corrective action.
- Lawyers on each side will exchange information (known as discovery).
- Before trial, the two sides may agree on a settlement. Your attorney will help you decide if the settlement offer you receive is fair.
- If a settlement is not reached, your attorney will present your case at trial. If you win, the defendant will be ordered to pay you a specific sum of money.
Because there are several phases to personal injury cases, settlements and verdicts can take months, if not years to conclude. Our attorneys are dedicated to resolving your case quickly, but above all else, to getting you the best possible outcome.
