3 Facts You Should Know About Personal Injury Law Services

by Joyce Diaz

It is quite common for many people to go through their entire life without ever needing to file a personal injury lawsuit. Consequently, it should come as no surprise that there are many people who are unfamiliar with personal injury law services. As with all things unfamiliar, this can cause people to avoid the legal help they truly need when the time comes to pursue a personal injury claim. Thankfully, you can help to eliminate the mystery surrounding these services by taking just a few minutes to review the three facts below.

Fact #1: Personal Injury Law Services Can Help With Virtually Any Type Of Injury Case

Some individuals are under the impression that personal injury law services only deal with injuries resulting from auto accidents. Consequently, these individuals may not even realize that an injury attorney can actually help them as well. If you were injured in another type of accident, you should know that injury attorneys often handle all types of personal injury cases. This includes slip and fall, pedestrian, dog bite, and workers compensation injury cases. 

Fact #2: Many Personal Injury Claims Never Go To Court

One of the main reasons that many people are tempted to settle their injury claim without consulting a lawyer is that they do not want to deal with having their claim tied up in court for the foreseeable future. This concern is really unfounded since the majority of injury claims can be settled out of court, even when there are lawyers involved. In fact, having a personal injury attorney on your side can actually help to improve your chances of settling out of court without compromising the value of your claim in the process. 

Fact #3: Most Personal Injury Attorneys Will Not Require Upfront Payment

One of the first things many people want to know when deciding whether or not to hire a personal injury attorney is how much these legal services are going to cost them. In many cases, this is because money can get quite tight after a major injury. This is especially true for individuals who have been forced to remain out of work for a significant amount of time due to their injuries. The good news is that you really do not have to worry about money when seeking out personal injury law services. This is because most injury lawyers will work on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay for their services if they are successful in winning your case. How much you pay for these services will also be directly tied to how much money they are able to recover for you.

About Me

Divorce – Do It Right

Hello. My name is Stephanie Laurel. I have recently been through a divorce, and although I don’t wish it on anyone, I do wish that everyone could come out of the proceedings feeling they have been taken care of. My husband and I had been married twenty-eight years. We have four children, two of which are still under eighteen years of age. We owned the home we lived in and had a vacation home in a different state. We are civilized people, we get along fairly well considering, but no matter how much we thought we could go through the divorce process without lawyers, it wasn't possible. We each hired a divorce attorney to represent us. Most of the negotiations went well, but when we hit a rough spot the attorneys took over. Thank goodness. I’m going to share more about the experience and hope it helps you.
