How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Vehicle Motorcycle Truck Accident Lawyer In Los Angeles, LA?
Simply put, *we* get paid when *you* get paid. When you win, we win. When you settle, we settle. If we don’t, you owe us nothing. Not a single dime. There are no upfront fees because our retainer agreement stipulates we work on a contingency fee basis
What Are Los Angeles’s Car Crash Lawyer Contingency Fees?
Our attorneys agree to work your case and secure compensation on your behalf in exchange for a portion of your settlement recovery.
It’s a payment system that – regardless of a person’s race, religious affiliation, background, gender or age – allows you to receive fair representation across the board.
When going head-to-head against major corporations – especially wealthy insurance company’s hell-bent on keeping and preserving their wealth – they have the financial power to literally ‘cripple’ any average person with a modest income who makes a claim because they can afford to pay their attorneys top dollar for the best representation. Unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, hit the jackpot or run a wildly successful business that made you a multi-millionaire, outside of the contingency payment system, you stand no chance.
When your case is accepted you are immediately entered into a attorney-client relationship where your case is fought for with the same energy, passion and devotion “as if” you were paying top dollar for representation.
We, of course, have an interest in recovering the MAXIMUM AMOUNT ALLOWABLE because the higher the recovery, the more we stand to earn for our hard work and efforts and the more you get to take home to with as you wish.
The Hidden Truth About Car Accident Insurance Injury Claims In California
Although you may be fully aware that the state of California is a FAULT state, it’s important you understand exactly ‘what that means to you’ and how, for insurance purposes, it could affect potential settlement results.
In the event of an accident, the other driver must be found largely responsible for you to pursue a claim. Additionally, you must be aware of ‘comparative negligence laws meaning if your actions prior to the accident contributed ‘in ANY way’, the amount we’ll be able to successfully recover on your behalf will be reduced by the percentage of your fault.
For example, if you sustained $20,000 worth of damages, but the insurance company determines you were at least 30% at fault, the amount of payout will total $14,000. Clearly, determining fault in an accident as well as ‘how much’ at fault one is responsible for is a very complicated process that can have a significant impact on the value of your judgement claim.
By enlisting the services of Legacy Law Firm, you will have peace of mind knowing that reputable attorneys are working diligently by your side – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will conduct a thorough investigation, collect admissible evidence, and work to prove how the other driver was not only at ‘fault’ but totally responsible for the accident having taken place.
Here’s What You Should Do After A Vehicle Traffic Accident…
STEP #1: First things first, call the police ‘immediately. Police reports serve as crucial evidence in itself to validate and prove your claim. If at all possible, collect the drivers contact and insurance information along with the names and contact information of any key witnesses who were there to witness the scene of the accident.
Also, take quality photos of the accident scene *and* video recordings to document the extent of the damage to the vehicles and your injuries. If for whatever reason you’re unable to collect this information or take photos and videos of accident scene, ask someone nearby to do it for you.
STEP #2: Seek medical attention from a doctor or other medical professional. Getting the right treatment to aid in your recovery is not only critical for you personally but in further documenting and validating the extent of the damages in your claim.
Doctor visits, surgical work, radiological tests, medication prescriptions and rehabilitative care will all be recorded and used to support your claim. It’s key you follow your doctors recommendations, too, for treatment and therapy.
STEP #3: Most claims will involve the other party’s insurance company. An insurance claims adjuster will attempt to contact you. They’re responsible for investigating the your accident and settling your claim, and if they can settle with you without coming out of pocket, they win. For this reason, you must AVOID speaking to anyone from any insurance company without the best legal representation. If you’re not careful they will attempt to get you on record saying things you didn’t mean to say and proceeding to use that as evidence to nullify your claim.
