There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to personal injury cases. Each one is different and unique. Depending the circumstances and the severity of your personal injury accident, your case could be worth a few thousand dollars or even a few million. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an experienced, Montana personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Otherwise, you could miss out on the money you need and deserve for your accident-related expenses.
Personal injury accidents can cover a wide range. In general, most accidents are due to someone failing to take care of a known hazard. This may include tripping or falling over an object left in a public place (supermarket, shopping mall, restaurant, etc.). Other times, personal injury accidents occur because of someone’s reckless behavior. These accidents may include a speeding driver crashing into your car, a surgeon operating on the wrong part of the body or nursing home employee abusing a loved one. Whatever type of personal injury accident you’re dealing with, we want to help you get your life back on track.
There is no set dollar amount when it comes to hiring a personal injury attorney in most cases. You should be suspicious of any lawyer who claims they can tell you up front exactly how much it will cost to handle your case. At our law firm, we offer a free case evaluation and work on a contingency fee basis. That means you only owe us a percentage of your financial settlement or verdict. If you do not receive any money for your claim, you do not owe us a penny. We work this way because we know how hard people work in Montana. We value your time and money just as much as you do.
In many cases, yes. Many personal injury accidents need to be investigated by the police. This is especially true for car accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. If you’re not sure whether or not you should call the police, feel free to do so or just contact us. We can meet with you for free and discuss the details of your case. That way, you’ll have a better understanding of your legal rights and all the options available to you.
First and foremost, you should seek immediate medical attention. You could have a serious injury or illness. If you don’t have a doctor or another medical professional examine you right away, your health and wellbeing could be at risk. Next, we strongly advise you to contact our law firm as soon as possible, no matter what type of personal injury accident you’re dealing with in Montana. We can advise you on what steps to take next, as well as all the legal options available to you. Schedule a free case evaluation with us today.
No. Simply tell them they should contact our law firm and address any questions or concerns they have to us. Anything you say to them could potentially be used to reduce or deny your personal injury claim. Insurance companies often do everything they can to pay you as little as possible. That often means trying to get you to say something they can use against you.
Always be cautious of insurance companies or anyone else offering to settle your personal injury claim right away. We realize it’s tempting to take the money soon after your accident. That’s why insurance companies often make these offers. The reality is many settlement claims don’t even come close to covering all your expenses related to your personal injury accident. Once you accept a claim, you often cannot ask for any additional money ever again in the future. That’s why it is important to carefully review your settlement offer. We can help you do so and offer you advice, free of charge, during your initial case evaluation.
There are so many reasons why you need a personal injury attorney after your accident. The biggest reason why is you need someone on your side who’s looking out for your best interests first.
