How Can An Injury Attorney Help Me?
There is no obligation on an individual injured or hurt in an unfortunate incident to call a lawyer to represent them. However, several families opt to retain a legal professional to represent their rights after a personal injury for two reasons:
1) they don't have the know-how in the area of injury law
2) so they can focus on recovering physically and mentally following their incident
Insurance providers frequently attempt to discourage injury victims from getting representation as they know about reports that show that people who retained a lawyer reliably successfully receive considerably more financial compensation for their settlement as opposed to people who negotiate their lawsuit pro se.
Another reason why people hire an accident attorney is because there are nearly always issues that come with accident litigations that need to be resolved to avoid monetary award complications down the road.
How Much Will An Attorney Charge For A Personal Injury Or Wrongful Death Case?
All accident or death lawsuits at Maryland Injury Guys are handled on a "contingent fee" basis. In a contingent fee plan, our legal service charge is transparently set out in a prepared contract at the time we are hired by you. However, we will only receive a legal fee when we succeed in obtaining a financial settlement for our clients. In the event there is no money recovered, we do not assess a legal fee.
How Much Is My Injury Claim Worth?
The financial award of an injury case is made up of both financial and non-economic damages. Monetary damages consist of medical bills, lost earnings, and damage to property. Non-economic losses can comprise pain and suffering, impairment, disfigurement, and loss of consortium or quality of living.
There are many other key variables that affect the value of a dispute such as: the date of birth of the injured person, the insurance protection available, and the degree of fault our client had resulting in the incident. While we must accept the realities in each specific scenario, our firm's aim is to argue the most favorable case possible to a judge, jury, or insurance provider evaluating your claim.
If I Start A Lawsuit For An Injury, Will It Be Litigated In A Courtroom?
Most of our personal injury lawsuits resolve before a legal filing is submitted in court. At Maryland Injury Guys, we never expect cases to successfully resolve effortlessly or swiftly so we put together every claim as if it is going to trial.
From the moment we are retained in a claim, we collect significant evidence to determine how exactly an accident occurred and how the behavior of various individuals may have resulted in the incident. This often means requesting police department documents, witness statements, photographs of the area, and other records and expenses.
What Is The Approximate Resolution Timeframe For An Injury Lawsuit?
The length of time an injury case takes to come to a conclusion is usually a factor of the intricacy of the dispute and how aggressive a legal representative is with settlement negotiations and/or judicial proceedings. A hit-from-behind crash involving a truck company with straightforward treatment will likely settle more efficiently than a misdiagnosis of cancer case involving multiple parties responsible.
Maryland Injury Guys understands the mental and monetary burden a lawsuit has on the victim and their loved ones. Because of this, our lawyers work diligently to position every case with the best chance of fast resolution. Our attorneys are assertive with our litigation techniques so every dispute can be settled successfully as expeditiously and as equitably as feasible. The personal injury lawyer assigned to your claim will offer you a better timeframe for resolution after taking the variables in play are defined.
