David Greene from Greene and Phillips Law Firm joined us on Studio10 to talk about the process of hiring a lawyer. Some people who have been in a wreck may be concerned that they can’t afford to hire an attorney. So we asked David the following questions below to learn more about the process.
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
When you hire a personal injury lawyer, you actually owe us nothing unless we get money for you. That is because we work on a contingency fee which means we are working for you based on a percentage of your final settlement or verdict amount.
Is there any charge for a consultation?
No, we never charge for a consultation. If you want to talk to us we’ll be happy to sit down with you and go over your case, if we think you may have a case, we’ll give you the opportunity to sign up. You owe us nothing unless we get you a settlement.
Would a victim get more money, if they were not having to pay an attorney out of their settlement?
Personal injury claims can be very complex, having an injury attorney on your side can save you from making critical mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars in potential settlement money. In fact insurance companies’ own research shows that those who hire a lawyer end up getting on average 3.5 times more money than those who do not hire a lawyer.
Is there a circumstance where you’ve been in an accident that you would not want to talk to a lawyer?
There really isn’t a circumstance where it’s a good idea not to talk to a lawyer. Even if you don’t think the damage is enough. It’s still worth coming in and letting us look to see if you may have a case.
