Top Injury Lawyer Directory

Directory Listing the Top Personal Injury Attorneys in the United States

If you've been injured in an auto accident, you may wonder whether you should hire a lawyer or not.  The answer to that question is simply:  Yes!  You should definitely hire a lawyer.  We aren't just writing this because this is a directory for injury lawyers.  This truly is the best advice anyone could give you if you've been injured in a car accident.  The fact of the matter is that when you are in an accident you will be seeking compensation from an auto insurance company.  Auto insurance companies are some of the biggest companies in the world.  These are usually billion dollar companies.  These companies are very good at protecting their profits by not paying claims.  They would much rather spend their profits on advertising so that they can make even more money on people who'll pay their premiums.  Because the odds are stacked against you, you need a knowledgeable and experienced injury lawyer on your side.  Injury law is complicated so you will need a lawyer on your side to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

You may wonder if you can afford a lawyer.  This should not be a concern for you because nearly all injury lawyers work on contingency.  This means that they don't get paid until they get you a settlement for your injuries.  They usually charge a percentage of the total settlement amount.  Because they'll be paid based on a percentage of the settlement, you can rest assured that they will do everything they can to get as big of a settlement as possible.  Think of it this way: you are in business with a partner who owns one third of the business and you own two thirds of the business.  You should have no reason to wonder if your partner who owns a third of the business will want the business to make as much money as possible.  

But isn't one third of the settlement too much to pay a lawyer?   Would you be better off keeping 100% of the settlement without a lawyer?  Think of  it this way:  Would you rather have 100% of a small amount or 66% of a big amount.  For example, let's say a if you hire a lawyer he could get you a settlement of $15,000.  After you pay him, you would end up with about $10,000.  Without a lawyer, most likely you would not get a settlement anywhere near $10,000.  In fact, it's a very real possibility that you could mess up your case and not get any settlement at all.  Not only will you most likely end up with more money in the end if you hire a lawyer, but you also won't have to do the work or stress out over the case.  The lawyer will take over everything.  He'll deal with the insurance company and take care of all of the paperwork on  your case.  All you will need to worry about is getting the treatment that you need so that you can completely recover from your injuries.  

So now you hopefully understand why you should hire a lawyer.  Now, please do not delay in hiring one.   The longer you wait, the more that can go wrong with your case and the lower of a settlement you will probably get.  Also, many lawyers simply don't accept cases if too much time has gone by because of the odds that the case has already suffered irreparable harm.
