Auto accidents are caused by someone's negligent or reckless actions. The driver of the other car may be at fault or, at least, partially at fault.
Sometimes an auto accident is trivial, but many times, it is not. If you were injured in an auto accident, your injuries may be significant or life threatening such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury. You may have broken bones, severe cuts or burns or disabling whiplash. You may have suffered a disfiguring scar. You may be unable to go to work or to participate in your favorite activities. Your injuries may continue into the future and become permanent.
An auto accident may cause you to incur expenses for something that was not your fault. You may incur large medical bills not covered by your insurance or suffer lost wages from being unable to work. You may have significant damage to property or businesses interests.
When the person at fault refuses to take full and prompt responsibility for their negligent or reckless actions, or refuses to pay you for everything you are entitled, a lawyer's services are necessary so that you can recover all of your damages the law allows you to recover. In such a case, you should consult with a lawyer.
Generally, lawyers handle auto accident cases on a contingent fee basis. This means they are not paid any attorneys' fees, unless and until they recover money for you. The amount of the fee is a percentage of what they help you recover.
