Have you recently been in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Did you suffer injury as part of this accident? If so you have a right to recover money to compensate you for your pain and suffering from the other party, any medical costs you have incurred and any lost wages for being out of work.
When choosing a lawyer it is a good idea to use a Contingency Fee attorney which means you don’t have to pay them a penny in costs from your own pocket. Unless you have to go to court, the only costs you may need to pay are for the costs of accident reports, medical records and doctor’s testimony fees. These fees are all reimbursable by the client at the end of the case.
If your case is successful and you do win, you will receive compensation and your attorney will claim their legal costs from the settlement. If your case is unsuccessful your lawyer will simply not get paid a fee, that’s why they usually only take on cases they think have a very good chance of winning and therefore earning themselves money.
An accident claim can mean many different things:
Personal Injury Claim – you may have been in a car or truck accident
Road Traffic Accident Claim – you may have been hit by a car while walking or hit by a bus while biking
Work Accident Claim – you may have used faulty equipment and have therefore hurt yourself on the job while employed
Slip Trip or Fall Claim – you may have tripped and fallen on uneven pavement or slipped on a wet floor in the grocery store
Medical Negligence Claim – you may have been told you are fine when you have a serious illness or have been the victim of a negligent or careless doctor
Animal Attack Claim – you may have been bitten by a dog or other animal.
Once you’ve chosen your lawyer to represent you and your accident claim, you will need to explain clearly and in detail the events that took place before, during, and after your accident. If you have any witnesses or any photographs you or others may have taken at the scene, these should be given to your attorney who can contact the relevant witnesses if necessary, as well as taking into account exactly what happened.
The more your attorney knows the better they can represent you. Don’t think, “Oh that little bit isn’t necessary.” Tell them everything, they can then decide if it’s important or not.
Whatever type of accident you’ve been involved in you have the right to claim compensation so why are you waiting? Contact an experienced and reputable accident claim lawyer today.
