Rather than trying to negotiate this messy process by yourself, let us help. If you come in for a free consultation, our attorneys will meet with you, go over the accident in detail, help you set up a treatment plan, and make sure that you end up with the largest settlement possible.
Personal injury attorneys exist because insurance agencies are structured to take advantage of people. If you suffer from an accident and decide to resolve your case on your own, you could end up recovering your medical bills and possibly even property damage. Without the help of an experienced attorney, however, it is difficult to fully recover for the time, stress, pain, and suffering that the accident caused you and your family. When you go through a traumatic event like an auto accident, the resulting process can be a nightmare to negotiate and if you do it alone, it will be difficult for you to get paid for the time and energy you put into dealing with finding the right treatment providers and attempting to recover from your or someone else's insurance agency. After the accident, you will need to take the time to find the right physician to evaluate your injuries and will need to be able to pay for treatment. After you are better, you will need to call the insurance agency and negotiate payment for the money you are out for that medical treatment.
If instead, you hire J.W. Bond Law, you are looking at the possibility of recovering much more than the amount you spend on medical bills that came as a result of the accident. Insurance companies are not afraid of individuals with little to no legal experience and will not make big payouts to those individuals. Our office, however, routinely sees settlements in excess of your medical bills because insurance companies know we are not afraid to take them to trial if necessary. In furtherance of that, our office uses renowned physicians and treatment providers that are respected in the community and able to help get the best results possible for our clients. After a free consult, we will send you to a specialist who will evaluate your injuries and get you started on treatment. Our providers will routinely see patients referred by us without requiring payment up front because they trust our ability to recover your losses for you. That means no money out of pocket to see the doctor if you hire an attorney. That also means guidance to selecting the best possible physician to help with your specific injuries.
It may take a while for you to finish treatment, but we will work tirelessly for you while we wait to see what the final medical bills are. As soon as you retain our office in your case, we contact the insurance agencies and try to discover opposing party coverage and policy maximums. While you are seeing doctors and providers for injuries, we are keeping tabs on the bills and making sure you are up to date on what the possible payout and results will be. Often, bigger law firms will simply pull in massive numbers of clients in an attempt to make more money. We strive to stay in touch and make sure we help you through every step of the process. We make sure to keep running totals of your medical expenses so that as soon as our treatment providers decide you are recovered from your injuries, we are ready to begin negotiating for the largest possible settlement. Also, after we have a final settlement on the table, our attorneys will then negotiate your medical expenses on your behalf with the treatment providers in an attempt to minimize your medical expenses and maximize your payout.
Often, personal injury cases take months to resolve because we are unable to negotiate a settlement until we know the final number on the medical fees. It is important to pick a firm with a personal touch so that as soon as the medical expenses are finalized, negotiation can begin.
We bill personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that we take a percentage of the total payout by the insurance agency. We do not make a penny unless we get you a settlement. Not having an attorney in your case can lead to headache and heartache trying to pick the right doctor to see for your injuries, missed deadlines, and/or possibly not even recovering your medical expenses. You have nothing to lose in scheduling a free consult with our team today.
