Hiring an Attorney for Your Car Accident Case

November 15, 2017 Auto Accidents

When you are injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you have the right to hire an attorney to represent you in the process of filing your claim. The benefits are having an attorney to advocate for you are huge.

Your attorney will:

  • Deal with the insurance companies on your behalf.
  • Properly calculate the value of your claim.
  • Investigate the accident and gather all the necessary evidence to prove your case.
  • Establish liability of the other driver.
  • Help negotiate a favorable settlement for your claim or represent you in a trial in an effort to get you the compensation you need and deserve.

As a law firm for car accident victims, we see the importance of having experienced legal counsel.  Our auto accident attorneys will help make sure your medical bills are paid, your case is filed properly, and that you are compensated fairly for your injuries. At Matthew G. Miller, we treat every client like they are our only client.

Why Attorneys Are Useful In Nebraska Car Accident Cases

Some car accident victims decide to go it alone without the aid of an attorney.  What they often fail to realize is that the insurance company treats accident victims differently depending on whether or not they have an attorney.

When you are represented by counsel in your car accident case you will have the following benefits:

  • The insurance company cannot call you for a statement and use it against you in your case without your attorney present. In fact, the insurance company will be barred from contacting you directly.
  • The insurance company cannot unfairly deny or delay your claim in the hopes that you will become frustrated with the process. Your attorney will make sure that you are always one step ahead of the insurance company.
  • The best chances of getting the most favorable outcome in your car accident case. Many insurance companies decide how much someone will recover based on whether or not their lawyer actually picks juries and tries cases to a verdict. Hire an attorney who the insurance companies know for routinely taking cases to trial.

While the choice is ultimately up to you, there are many reasons why hiring an attorney can make a big impact on your car accident case.

How Attorneys Are Compensated

Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay for an attorney unless your claim is successful.

At Matthew G. Miller, we cover all costs and fees up front and we do not charge for the initial free personal injury case consultation. Case costs and attorney fees are paid after the conclusion of your case, from the settlement or jury award. If you do not make a recovery in your case, you pay us nothing. This compensation structure is standard across the legal industry.  If you have any questions about attorney compensation, feel free to schedule an initial free personal injury case consultation where we explain the personal injury legal process.
