Hiring an Attorney for Your Car Accident Case
When you are injured in a car accident, one of the biggest decisions you will make in the process of filing a claim is whether to hire an attorney and who you will choose. As a law firm for car accident victims, we see the importance of having experienced legal counsel. An attorney will help make sure your medical bills are paid, your case is filed properly, liability of the other driver is established, the insurance company is dealt with, 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 don’t realize is that the insurance company treats accident victims differently depending on whether or not they have an attorney. For example, if you are represented by counsel in your car accident case, the insurance company cannot call you for a statement and use it against you in your case without your attorney present. They also cannot unfairly deny or delay your claim in the hopes that you will become frustrated with the process. Attorneys will make sure that you are always one step ahead of the insurance company. 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
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingent fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay for an attorney unless your claim is successful and until your claim is successful. At Matthew G. Miller, we do not charge legal fees up front and we do not charge for the initial consultation. If your case is not successful, you do not have to pay. However, if your case is successful, your attorney will be paid one-third of your settlement. This compensation structure is standard across the legal industry. If you have any questions about attorney compensation, feel free to schedule an initial consultation where we explain the personal injury legal process.
