Five Facts About Filing a Personal Injury Case That You May Not Know

Whether you think you know everything about personal injury cases or you feel as though you are completely in the dark, it is likely you will be surprised by these facts. If you have questions about whether or not you have a case or how to proceed, contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.

  1. You Can Take Legal Action with $0.00 Upfront
  2. You do not have to have thousands of dollars to get the money you deserve. We understand that many people who have just been involved in accidents do not have the funds to hire an attorney. We know that you are not likely to be able to make a financial gamble to get the funds you need.

    These are just two of the reasons we take cases on a contingency basis that assures you do not pay us anything upfront. We cover the costs of the case and our fee comes from the compensation you eventually receive from the case. If we di not win your case then you do not owe us anything.

  3. It is Unlikely You Will See a Courtroom or Even a Judge
  4. It is expensive to go to trial. It is also very time consuming and can result in waiting many months – or even years – to get compensation for your damages. No one involved in the case is likely to want to take it to court. As a result, almost all cases are negotiated outside of court. This is one of the reasons you need an attorney who is experienced at aggressively negotiating.

  5. You Are Most Likely Suing an Insurance Company
  6. In some cases, people do not want to sue because they do not want to hurt a friend or family member. For example, if they are the victim of a dog bite, they may be hesitant to file a claim because they do not want the dog’s owner to have to pay for their injuries. The important thing to know is that in almost all cases, it is not an individual or even a small business that will have to pay you – it is an insurance company that makes a lot of profit off of the people they insure.

  7. You Will Not Necessarily Have to Make Your Private Life Personal
  8. Another reason people are sometimes hesitant to file a lawsuit is that they do not want their personal business to be made public. If this is a concern, talk to your attorney about it. Many cases can be negotiated and settled privately for with all parties being bound not to disclose the terms of the agreement.

  9. You May Never Meet Your Attorney
  10. Depending on the complexity and specifics of your case, it could be settled very quickly without ever even meeting your attorney in person. To learn more about how to get started, call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
