There is no obligation for a person harmed in an accident to seek out a legal professional to represent them. However, many individuals choose to retain a legal professional to defend their interests after a personal injury for two main reasons:
Insurance companies regularly attempt to impede injury victims from getting an attorney because they are aware of studies that conclude that people with an attorney often receive considerably more compensation for their case compared to individuals who settle their lawsuit on their own.
Another reason why individuals hire a personal injury law firm is that there are oftentimes after settlement issues that come with injury lawsuits that need to be dealt with to avoid settlement difficulties in the future.
Virtually every personal injury or wrongful death claim at The Sharma Law Firm is handled on a “contingency fee” structure. Under a contingency fee arrangement, our legal fee is set forth in a prepared contract at the time we are hired by a client. Moreover, we only receive a fee when we are successful in obtaining a financial reward on your behalf. If there is no recovery, we do not charge a legal fee.
The value of a personal injury case is composed of both financial and non-economic losses. Economic damages include medical invoices, lost earnings, and damage to property. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, deformity, disfigurement, and loss of companionship or quality of life.
There are other factors that affect the value of a lawsuit such as the age of the harmed person, the amount of insurance coverage available and contributory fault resulting in the accident. While we must accept the realities in each scenario, our goal is to present the most advantageous case possible to a judge, jury or insurance provider evaluating your case.
Most of personal injury cases settle before a lawsuit is ever filed in a courthouse. At our personal injury law firm, we never expect disputes to resolve effortlessly or quickly so we put together each case as if it may go to trial. From the time we are engaged in a case, we gather valuable evidence to establish how an incident materialized and how the conduct of various participants may have contributed to the incident. This often implies collecting police documents, witness statements, photographs of the scene and case histories and expenses.
How long a personal injury case takes to settle is typically a function of the intricacy of the dispute and how aggressive an attorney is with settlement dialogue and/or litigation. For example, a rear-end collision involving a trucking firm with straight forward medical treatment will probably resolve faster than a medical malpractice case involving multiple parties.
The Sharma Law Firm understands the emotional and financial stress a case has on the individual and his or her family and works diligently to posture each case as best as possible. We are aggressive with our litigation and claims handling so each dispute can be resolved as quickly and as fairly as possible. The personal injury attorney assigned to your claim can give you a better time frame for resolution as all of the variables in play arise.
