Do I Have a Legal Case?
After an accident many people are not sure whether or not they should file a lawsuit. This is especially common when the incident may seem to have resulted in seemingly minor impact, although, someone was injured and requires medical care or had missed work. In many situations, it can be appropriate to file a lawsuit, but sometimes it may not be necessary. Simply having an attorney contact the proper insurance company on your behalf may often lead to fair compensation on a claim. The only way to know for sure what the right legal steps will be, however, is to contact a good car accident lawyer in New York.
Can Any Attorney Handle a Car Accident Case
Technically yes, any attorney can file a personal injury case for you. It is not, however, a good idea to retain an attorney who does not specialize in accident cases. Fortunately, most attorneys will not try to work on cases in the areas they are too unfamiliar with. But, some, however, may venture into unknown fields of law. Even if you have an attorney you work with on your other legal issues, it is smart to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to review your case to ensure you are getting the best representation.
What if a Loved One has Died in an Accident
Sadly thousands of people each year die in car accidents. While nothing will ever be able to take away the emotional pain from this type of loss, it is critical for any family to receive compensation for financial losses such as lost wages, loss of earning capacity for a loved one, past medical expenses, and more. You can hire a car accident lawyer such as Alexander Karasik ESQ to fight for your rights during this very difficult time.
How Much Does a Car Accident Attorney Cost
The exact cost of having a car accident lawyer working on your case will vary based on factors such as how long the case takes, how much research is needed, and more. In most cases, however, the attorney will simply take an agreed upon percentage of any winnings from the case or settlement. This way you are not at risk of losing money no matter the results. The best way to get an accurate estimation of the costs is to schedule a consultation with Karasik Law Group.
