My mate, Phil, recently suffered from a head injury due to a car crash. When another car approached him from behind, he was driving his car calmly, making him hit his head hard on the steering wheel. He had to be rushed into an ambulance and given 18 stitches on his scalp, not just bruises and blood. Phil spent 10 days in the hospital, and even after he was released, he had to stay at home for quite some time. We were all expecting compensation to be paid by the driver of the other vehicle. But he declined, saying that it was not his fault, and that he was not responsible for paying my friend anything. That is when Phil wanted to employ an attorney for personal injuries. It was one of the best decisions ever taken by Phil. Visit us on Katzman & Sugden, LLC.
Phil not only sustained a major injury to one of the most significant areas of his body, he also had to pay medical bills, which were very high. What’s more, he had been unable to work for many days, and with a woodworking company, that meant he had to give up his earnings for those days. All together, it was Phil’s very costly accident, and he wasn’t the guilty party! The personal injury attorney, thankfully, was fantastic. Phil received quite a big reward from the other car’s driver.
In cases like this, hiring a personal injury attorney is a very good idea because the client realises that he is liable to obtain compensation. Many of us non-lawyers have no idea what our legal rights and remedies are, and this fact can very well be taken advantage of by insurance firms. For insurance firms, it is not unusual to pay the least compensation they may get away with, leaving the survivor left with large bills for an accident they did not cause.
If you intend to employ a personal injury attorney or someone you trust, my recommendation will be to hire someone who agrees to a “contingent charge.” This means that if you win, you will have to pay him a portion of the payout (agreed on before the case starts) that you get. You won’t pay him anything if the case is lost. As far as personal injury cases are concerned, I believe this is the best choice to choose and it sure worked for my buddy!
