Are you entitled to money?
We’ll help determine the amount.
These factors influence how much an automobile negligence case may be worth:
- How seriously were you injured?
- Who was at fault in the accident?
- How, if at all, will the injuries affect your normal life, and for how long?
- Do you have a good employment and medical history?
- How much insurance does the other driver have?
- Who besides the other driver might also be at fault? His/her employer? The owner of the vehicle?
- What insurance coverage do you have on your vehicle?
- What is the financial “profile” of the person who caused the collision?
- Does your lawyer have a proven track record of success in auto cases?
- Is your lawyer someone with whom you feel you can communicate fully and openly?
- Do you come across well to other people?
- How are your case costs and attorney fees going to be charged against your settlement?
What does 22not33 mean, exactly?
Other law firms charge 33% of a net settlement amount. Our contingent fee is only 22%. (Remember, you are responsible to reimburse case costs spent by any attorney.) For example: A lawyer wins a $100,000 “net settlement” (deduction of costs spent by your attorney to prepare your case, taken “off the top” of your settlement total before the fee is calculated). If the attorney is charging a 33% fee, you would get about $67,000. If you were charged just 22% — which is our fee — you would receive about $78,000.
