Should I hire a lawyer if I am injured in a car accident?
The short answer is yes!
If you have been in a car accident and have suffered personal injuries you are entitled to receive compensation for all of your injuries. It is typical to receive payment for property damage to your vehicle as well as payment of some of your medical expenses for your injuries. After filing a claim with the insurance company you will often be contacted and asked to provide a written or recorded statement. You also may be offered payment for damage to your vehicle and some medical expenses and asked to sign a release. If you sign that release you may be agreeing to accept less compensation than you deserve, which works out well for the insurance company but does not work out very well for you.
The automobile insurance company has trained professionals who look out for them. This is why it is important for you to have a lawyer who will fight to protect your rights and get you the money you deserve. Once you hired Cohen Cleary, P.C. You will no longer have to worry about what to say or what to do because we will deal with the insurance company for you. We will make sure that you receive payment for the damage to your vehicle, damage to your personal property, payment of all medical expenses, payment for lost wages, and payment for all of your pain, suffering, and emotional anguish that is caused by the car accident. If you have more than $2,000.00 in medical expenses or if you have suffered a permanent and serious disfigurement, broken bone, or loss of hearing or sight then you have a right to additional money to compensate you for the pain, suffering, and anguish caused by your injuries. We will work to obtain the maximum payment that is possible for all of your injuries. Once we are hired to represent a client in a personal injury case we are usually able to reach an agreement with the insurance company that gives our clients the compensation they deserve. If an agreement cannot be reached we will protect your claim by filing litigation before the applicable deadlines. This is important because the deadline to file your claim is different if your claim is against a private party or if it is against a city, county, or state agency.
It is also beneficial to hire Cohen Cleary, P.C. because there is no fee for our services unless we are successful. We offer representation on a “contingent fee” basis which means that we only are paid if we are able to obtain payment for your injuries. We also offer a free and confidential consultation for all personal injury cases. We will use our knowledge of the law and our years of experience to make sure you receive each and every penny that you deserve.
