Are Car Accident Lawyers Expensive?

There’s a myth that car accident attorneys are too expensive to hire. In fact, most car accident lawyers, including those at Wagner Reese, work strictly on a contingency fee basis. That means we only get paid if you get compensation.

The truth is that you’re far more likely to get the full compensation you’re entitled to when you have an experienced lawyer handling your case. The costliest decision you could make is not hiring a lawyer to handle your claim.

What Should I Know About Dealing with Insurers After a Crash?

You have NO obligation to speak to the representative of someone else’s insurance company. The other driver’s insurer will likely contact you to get you to make a statement, and they’ll attempt to use those words against you in your claim. The only thing you need to tell that representative is that they should speak with your lawyer.

People often mistakenly believe that they’re obligated to accept whatever an insurance company offers them after a crash. This is not true. If you accept the insurance company’s offer, you will not be able to demand more compensation. This is one of the reasons insurers make quick offers to injured people; they know that victims will assume all their costs will be covered.

It’s important to work with your lawyer to determine the true value of your claim. This will protect you from accepting an offer that is far below what you’re entitled to.
