Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
You may be tempted to go it alone and handle your own claim after an injury. While that’s an option, it may not be the best route. While it’s understandable to want to avoid attorneys’ fees, a mistake, delay, or other misstep on your part can compromise your entire case.
Personal injury claims cover a wide array of cases, including:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall injuries
- Dog bites
- Workplace accidents
- Products liability
- Wrongful death
- And more
Both the type and extent of your injury can help you make the determination of whether an Oklahoma personal injury attorney is necessary. For example, a minor fender bender with minimal bruising as your only injury is less complicated to resolve than a crash with a semi-truck resulting in surgeries and permanent injuries.
Even if you think your injuries are minor, it can still be helpful to consult with an attorney to find out if you have a case. This is especially true since injuries may take longer to manifest or require a thorough examination to rule out anything major. An example of this could be minor bruising from a fall that resulted in underlying damage to your spine.
Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
Working with a personal injury attorney can take a lot off your plate and also give you some serious negotiating power. In most personal injury cases, you’ll be up against the other party’s insurance company to argue your claim and put a value on the incident.
As you can guess, those insurance companies will vehemently protect their deep pockets. They’ll have a team of attorneys whose sole purpose is to minimize the amount of your settlement and even find ways to deny your claim completely.
Having a personal injury attorney on your side includes the following benefits:
- Timely reimbursements for any out-of-pocket expenses
- The ability to negotiate with insurance companies on a level playing field
- A support staff to help gather medical records and bills, establish claims with the insurance companies, and prepare your file for the best settlement or outcome at trial possible.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
This question is often the most concerning to clients because they assume they’re unable to afford the services of an Oklahoma personal injury attorney.
The good news is that Bryan doesn’t charge anything up front for injury cases. Instead, he work on a contingency basis, which means he doesn’t get paid until your claim is successfully resolved.
When that happens, the attorney will get a portion of your proceeds. There’s no uniform structure to how law offices determine these percentages. Before agreeing to work with someone, it’s a smart idea to know what percentage of your settlement or verdict your attorney will get. A lower portion isn’t necessarily better, but it can at least give you a starting point for comparison.
It’s also recommended to ask about the attorney’s experience and track record for your particular type of case. You can also go online and read client testimonials to get an idea of what it will be like to work with that attorney.
