Written by Award-Winning Lawyer Lawrence S. Lapidus
Getting in a car accident is bad enough. But when you get in a car accident and get injured? Things can get a whole lot more challenging. Even if your injuries are what the insurance company refers to as “minor injuries,” your circumstances may not be as simple as a little bit of paperwork.
Question: Do I Need a Lawyer?
Answer: It depends. There are many car accident lawyers at law firms who may tell you that you need a lawyer when you really don’t. That’s where the consultation plays a key role in your situation. This should be free of charge, and you don’t have to decide on which lawyer you choose immediately after. Any honest and ethical lawyer will let you know if you have a good chance of getting a settlement and whether you truly need representation in the specific and particular circumstances of your case.
Question: How Much Does an Attorney Cost?
Answer: There is no “flat fee” for a personal injury lawyer. Most Metro DC law firms will receive a percentage of your settlement at the conclusion of your case. You, the client, benefit from this arrangement (that should be openly discussed during your consultation) because you don’t have out of pocket costs. Your lawyer gets paid when you get your settlement, so it’s a win-win that has proven successful year after year.
Question: Can My Lawyer Guarantee That I’ll Win My Case?
Answer: Certainly not. However, here at The Lapidus Law Firm, we don’t accept a case if we don’t feel confident that we’ll get that fair and reasonable settlement for our clients. Ethically, we can’t promise a big win (and neither can any other attorney), but what we can promise is that our clients will get treated wonderfully, we’ll make sure they are informed through every step of the legal process, and every case we take gets the time and attention it deserves. Nothing feels better than to see our clients elated at the settlements we’re able to get for them.
