We Americans are a skeptical bunch. We believe in the old saying, “there is no such thing as a free lunch.” But when it comes to free legal consultations, they are actually, truly, 100% free. Yes, legal advice at no cost or obligation!
If you have been injured in any type of accident or are the victim of medical malpractice, you should avail yourself of this special offer almost all personal injury lawyers make. Whether you want to ask your question online or by phone, lawyers are ready to assist you … for free.
Of course, if the lawyer believes you have a viable claim, and you wish to retain the lawyer’s services, he or she will charge you a fee. However, unlike most other lawyers, personal injury attorneys work on a “contingency fee” basis. They will not be able to charge you a fee unless they win your case! Then, and only then, will they charge you a percentage of the settlement amount as their fee. Percentages will vary state to state.
About the worst thing you can do as an accident victim is to try handling your own claim. Insurance adjusters just love this. They know they will pay out much less than if you were represented by a skilled lawyer. The fact is that, even after considering the lawyer’s fee, most accident victims end up with more money in their pockets when they are represented.
If you need to consult with a lawyer about an accident claim, we hope you call us, or email us, at the Personal Injury Hotline. But in any event, don’t pass up your free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer and never try representing yourself. As Abraham Lincoln famously said, “he who represents himself has a fool for a client.”
