Should I get a lawyer for an auto accident?
If you were in a very minor car accident with no injuries whatsoever, in which fault is clear-cut and established and the only issue is repairing the car? Then in general, your insurance or the other driver's insurance will cover your losses without complaint. To them, a couple of thousand dollars to fix your car is small potatoes, and it maintains the illusion that they make the claims payout process easy and painless.
If you were in a major accident where you sustained any injuries at all then it's a very good idea to get a lawyer on your side as soon as you're medically capable of picking up the phone...preferably before you speak to any insurance company.
Medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering awards have a way of turning small payouts into very big payouts that insurance companies would rather avoid. They will do everything in their power to keep you from collecting the full extent of what you're entitled to.
In those cases, hiring a lawyer doubles your chances of collecting any money at all, and can triple the amount of money you'd get if you tried to handle the car accident on your own.
How much does a car accident lawyer cost?
Here's the great news about hiring a car accident lawyer. Hiring one is absolutely risk-free.
You don't have to come up with a retainer. You don't have to pay by the hour. Instead, car accident lawyers work on contingency. This means if they don't successfully negotiate a settlement they don't get paid.
If your lawyer is successful, they will make a percentage of the award. You'll know the exact percentage before you retain the lawyer. In most cases, even after your lawyer takes their percentage you'll still come out ahead when you compare what you receive to what you would have been likely to receive without a lawyer's aid.
