How Are Personal Injury Firms Different from One Another?
Not all personal injury attorneys are created equal. One of the things that helps The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker stand out is our long history of providing help to clients. In our decades of experience, we have learned the best way to build a case, prove a case, argue a case, and negotiate a case. Working with an attorney who is new to the filed can result in poorer quality representation.
Is it Necessary to Hire an Attorney?
It is not required by law but it is almost always a good idea. Why? Because navigating the claim on your own can be very challenging – especially if the at-fault party is claiming they are not at fault. You can count on insurance companies looking for ways to settle your claim for less than it is worth. Working with an attorney assures there is someone in your corner looking out for your rights.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Attorney?
Most attorneys, including The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means that our payment comes not out of your pocket today, but out of the winnings we recover for you. If we are not able to settle your case or get a verdict at trial, you will not owe us anything for your legal fees. We will discuss the percentage fee during your free consultation.
How Long Does It Take to go Through the Process?
That depends. If the at-fault party admits they were at fault and your injuries and damages are straightforward, it could be as quick and easy as us negotiating with the insurance company. On the other hand, if they claim they were not at fault, or if you have injuries that will require ongoing medical attention and care, the case could take months.
