When Should You Hire a Lawyer for a Motorcycle Accident?
With any motorcycle accident, it is always advisable to seek the expertise of an accident lawyer. On your own, it can be hard to know if you should be pursuing charges against a negligent party or seeking personal injury compensation for your claim. A motorcycle accident lawyer can protect you and act in your best interests to ensure you receive the best possible outcome for your case. They can take control of your entire case and work tirelessly to fight for your rights and secure the maximum amount of compensation possible.
A motorcycle accident lawyer may also be able to help with the following:
Building Your Case
A motorcycle accident lawyer will thoroughly analyze your case and seek to gather the necessary information. Where possible, an adept attorney will also work to obtain any supporting evidence, which may include witness statements and any video footage from the scene of the accident.
Occasionally, the at-fault party’s insurance company may approach you and try and settle the case out of court. Whilst in some instances an out-of-court settlement can work, more often than not, insurance companies will work outside of court to try to persuade you to accept a low offer and sign away your rights to legal action. A motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to advise on the best way to proceed and will always work with your best interests in mind.
Fight Your Case in Court
Should you be unable to agree to an out-of-court settlement, an accident lawyer will be able to fight on your behalf in court and work to ensure you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Seeking representation from a motorcycle accident lawyer means that they can also take away the stress of battling a court case and will fight for justice on your behalf, allowing you time to recover from any trauma and injuries.
How Much Will a Lawyer Cost Me?
If you have found yourself in the unfortunate position of being involved in a motorcycle accident and were wondering how much it might cost to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer, then it may surprise you to learn that many lawyers do not charge upfront legal fees. Here at The Law Place, all our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, more commonly known as a no-win-no-fee basis. This agreement means that our lawyers will only charge legal fees if we win your case and you receive a settlement. Therefore, if we are unsuccessful in representing your case, it won’t cost you a single penny.
As noted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), in most cases, a lawyer will take a percentage of your settlement as their fee. Generally speaking, a lawyer working on a contingency fee basis will take anywhere between 33%-40% of your settlement amount as payment for their legal advice and representation in court. However, this fee is always negotiable. Contingency work is monitored by the State Bar Associations, who set limits on what fees lawyers can charge.
At The Law Place, we pride ourselves on developing trusting attorney-client relationships built on honesty and transparency. We will ensure that you fully understand our costs and legal fees at the start of the legal process to ensure you are not left with any surprise bills.
