How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer in Canton Cost?
Many people don't know that personal injury lawyers don't charge any upfront costs when they take on a case. We work on a contingency fee that is based on how much they recover for clients. Once a case is favorably settled or litigated, payment for the lawyer's services and expenses comes out of the settlement you receive. Does that mean every lawyer will do the best job for you? No! Many lawyers who do not specialize in personal injury law try to take on cases they are not qualified to handle. Just as with other professions, all lawyers do not specialize in every type of law. So if you were happy with your family law, criminal defense, or estate planning attorney, that does not mean they are the best lawyer to handle your accident case. At the Personal Injury Law Firm of Casey W. Stevens, we specialize in accidents resulting in physical injuries.
What Do I Do if the At-Fault Driver Leaves the Accident?
Being involved in a hit-and-run accident can be overwhelming, but there are steps you can take to protect your rights. First, try to gather as much information about the other vehicle as possible, such as the make, model, color, and license plate number. If there were any witnesses present, collect their contact information and ask them if they saw anything that could help identify the driver. Next, file a police report and provide them with any information you have gathered. The presence of camera technology is prevalent in areas that have high traffic volume, and even in neighborhoods, so police can often access footage they need to assist with your case.
What Do I Do If I Don't Have Medical Insurance?
No health insurance after an accident? No problem! Our personal injury law firm in Canton can still help you. We understand that accidents can happen to anyone, including those who may not have insurance coverage. Many of our clients call complaining of neck injuries and back injuries, and we have a large network of doctors who will defer payment until our client's case is resolved. This practice is referred to as a "medical lien", and all of our doctors are the best in the business. Don't hesitate to reach out to us for a consultation. We are here to help you get the compensation you deserve. Remember, we only get paid if we win your case!
What Do I Do if the Defendant's Insurance Company Calls Me?
If the defendant's insurance company calls you, it is important to remember that they are not on your side. They may use tactics to try and get you to say something that could harm your case or offer you a low settlement. The best thing to do is to direct their calls to your personal injury lawyer who can handle all communication on your behalf. This will ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for your injuries. Remember, the insurance company's goal is to pay out as little as possible, while our goal is to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible for your damages.
If I Take a Settlement from an Insurance Company, Can I Come Back for More?
No, once you accept a settlement from an insurance company, you typically cannot come back for more money. It is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer before accepting any settlements to ensure that the amount offered is fair and sufficient to cover all of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Accepting a low settlement can leave you with unpaid bills and ongoing expenses related to your injury.
How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take in Georgia?
The length of a personal injury case can vary depending on the complexity of the case. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of weeks, while others may take several months or even years. Most of the time the duration of the case depends on how serious the injuries are and when an injury victim is released from a doctor's care. Settling a case when treatment is still being received is frowned upon, as it is not possible to receive financial compensation for accident-related injuries and treatment once a settlement is agreed upon.
