Concerned about Affording a Personal Injury Attorney?

June 16, 2016

Accidents can be devastating – physically, emotionally, and financially. Many people who are seriously hurt in preventable accidents are unable to work and incur significant medical bills. This can cause serious concern about how they will be able to afford this month’s mortgage payment, let alone hire an expensive attorney to handle their personal injury case.

If you are in this situation, we have some good news for you: you can retain the lawyers of Torgenson Law without spending any money up-front, and we will not charge you anything for our services unless we successfully recover compensation on your behalf. This is because we take all of our personal injury cases on a contingent-fee basis, under which any legal fees we collect will come out as a percentage of any award or settlement you receive. This system allows personal injury victims who are already struggling with their bills to obtain high-quality legal representation and also works to align our interests with yours – the better you do, the better we do. In addition, because any legal fees we collect come out on the “back end,” at no point will you need to pay for legal services out of money you already have.

How an Attorney Can Help

You may be considering representing yourself in your personal injury case, and may even have already been approached by an insurance company offering to settle your case.  While there is no law requiring you to retain an attorney, there are several good reasons to do so. Some of the more common include the following:

  • Determining how much your case is worth is extraordinarily difficult. An attorney who has represented accident victims in the past in hundreds of cases will be able to analyze your economic and non-economic losses and get a good idea of how much your case would be worth if it went to trial. This knowledge and information significantly strengthens your bargaining position when it comes to negotiating a settlement with an insurance company.
  • Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and their representatives are trained to minimize the amount that they pay out on claims. They have armies of attorneys working for them to make sure you settle cheap.  As a result, an insurance company agent may try to get you make a written or verbal statement in which you admit partial or full liability for your accident, jeopardizing your ability to fully recover for your losses. When you retain an attorney, he or she will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf, ensuring that your legal rights are protected.
  • The process of litigating a personal injury claim is extraordinarily complicated. If it becomes necessary to take your case to trial, you want to have an attorney who understands the legal system and has successfully tried personal injury cases in the past.
