Nearly all injury or death claims at Delaware Injury Law Firm are worked on a ‘contingent fee’ basis. In a contingency fee arrangement, our attorneys’ cost to you is transparently outlined in a prepared contract when we are engaged by a client. Moreover, we only earn a fee when we succeed in obtaining a financial reward on your behalf. If there is no recovery, we do not charge a legal fee.
The final financial award of an injury lawsuit is made up of both financial and non-economic losses. Financial damages consist of hospital bills, lost wages, and harm to personal property. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, impairment, disfigurement, and loss of companionship or quality of living.
There are many other key variables that affect the final valuation of a lawsuit such as the date of birth of the injured person, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the contributory negligence resulting in the incident. While we must accept the facts in each specific case, our mission is to argue the most favorable case possible to a judge, jury, or insurance company evaluating your case.
There is no obligation on a person injured in an accident to reach out to a lawyer to advocate for them. However, several injured victims elect to engage an attorney to defend their legal rights immediately after an accident for these two reasons:
1) they do not possess the expertise in the area of injury law; and
2) so they and their family can focus on bouncing back following their incident.
Large Insurance companies frequently attempt to prevent injury victims from securing legal representation as they know about studies that show that people who hired a lawyer reliably successfully obtain considerably more money for their case compared with individuals who negotiate their case alone.
Another reason why people hire a personal injury lawyer is that there are oftentimes post-settlement issues that accompany personal injury claims which need to be addressed to avoid financial compensation difficulties down the road.
Most of our injury claims settle successfully before a complaint is filed in a courthouse. At Delaware Injury Law Firm, we never expect cases to favorably resolve effortlessly or swiftly so we put together every claim as though it may go before a judge. From the time we are retained in a case, we collect significant evidence to prove how exactly an incident materialized and how exactly the omissions of specific parties may have resulted in the incident. This regularly means requesting police department accounts, witness testimony, photographs of the area, and medical records and expenses.
The length of time a personal injury lawsuit takes to come to a conclusion is typically a result of the complexity of the case and how aggressive a lawyer is with settlement dialogue and/or judicial proceedings. For example, a rear-end traffic accident involving a truck company with basic treatment will more often than not conclude more efficiently than a misdiagnosis of cancer claim comprising a multitude of defendants.
Delaware Injury Law Firm understands the mental and monetary pressure a lawsuit can have on the client and his or her loved ones. Because of this, our attorneys work vigilantly to place every lawsuit with the best likelihood of fast settlement. Our firm is assertive with our litigation strategy so every case can be settled favorably as expeditiously and as equitably as possible. The personal injury lawyer assigned to your claim will give you a more accurate time frame for settlement after considering all of the factors in play are defined.
