When you or a loved one is hurt, most people know that they deserve compensation for their losses. But many people don’t know that their insurance company won’t offer a fair settlement. People that caused your injuries as well as your insurance company will do anything to dodge the claim and avoid responsibility. In fact, insurance companies have even been known to profit from denying your claim. They, along with their lawyers, know every nook and cranny in the law and how they can avoid paying you what you deserve. They also know that someone without legal experience or an attorney have no idea what their legal rights are.
However, a personal injury attorney deals with sly insurance companies every day and is aware of their tactics. They know how to build your case, negotiate, and if needed, take your case to trial. Experienced lawyers know how to spot a lowball settlement that the insurance company may offer you. They also know the insurance company will try to extract damaging statements from you during negotiation that can hurt your case later on. Even with an attorney fee, the settlement you can obtain with a lawyer is significantly greater than accepting the insurance companies lowball settlement.
At Ray Hodge and Associates, our personal injury lawyers charge a contingency fee. In other words, the attorney only receives a percentage of the money if they win your case. If you lose your case, the attorney gets nothing. If fact, at Ray Hodge and Associates, they will even advance all the expenses. Just remember at Ray Hodge and Associates, no recovery, no fee AND no expenses.
It is often a wise idea to ask referrals from your doctor, chiropractor or view testimonials on their website or sites such as Avvo. Remember, even if you contact the lawyer or have a consultation, that doesn’t mean you have to hire that particular attorney. Having an initial consultation will give you some time to think if you want to hire that attorney. Having several initial consultations with different lawyers can also be a wise idea. An attorney may tell you that you don’t have a case or refer you to another lawyer that may be better suited for your case.
