These cases are generally handled on a contingency basis, which means that the client does not have to pay for the lawyer’s services unless and until the lawyer recovers an award of damages from the adverse party. This can be an extremely important aspect for clients, especially those who do not have the money to otherwise afford legal services.
Such cases can range from being very simple to extremely complicated. The most important thing is to seek legal advice as soon after the injury as is practical, and to adhere to that advice throughout the period of one’s recovery. Only after one has recovered to the fullest extent possible, should a formal claim be submitted to the adverse party or their insurance company. Individuals injured should NEVER talk with the other party’s insurance company without first having consulted a lawyer of their own, and having that lawyer present throughout any such phone call or interview if the lawyer thinks that is in the client’s best interest.
