At Walch Law, we have been practicing Los Angeles personal injury law for over four decades so we know how to win cases and also the many questions and concerns our clients have when it comes to hiring a lawyer to help with their Woodland Hills car accident. With that in mind, here are some important tips and FAQ's for you to know:
- How do I know if I need a lawyer to help with my car accident? If you had injuries then you should think about hiring a lawyer that has experience handling Woodland Hills car accidents. While minor car accidents with only property damage (i.e. your car needs repairs or replaced) can be handled directly with insurance, injuries are totally different and the more serious the injury the more seriously you should think about an attorney. This is because a lawyer will help make sure that they are presented to the other party (usually insurance companies) the full scope of your injuries and the impact the accident has had on your life. Additionally, if you played any role in the accident, a Woodland Hills lawyer can be instrumental in downplaying your role to make sure that your liability it low and your payment is high. Insurance companies, even your own, are not on your side...but Walch Law is.
- How should I prepare to see a lawyer following my car accident? While you do not need to do anything, what is helpful is making sure you have already seen a doctor and you writing down your recollection of what happened before/after/during the car accident. Seeing a doctor is an essential element of your case and something you should not just do to see a lawyer but you should do it immediately following an accident for the sake of your own recovery.
- How much does a Woodland Hills car accident lawyer cost? We take all our cases on a contingency fee basis to make it easy on you by not charging you anything until we get your case settled. Once there is an approved settlement (either from settlement discussions or a trial) we take roughly 33%. Our rate varies within that range and it is something we are very upfront with from the beginning. Even with attorneys fees, hiring a lawyer will almost always still result in significantly more money. At the least, take advantage of our free case consultation where we answer your questions and evaluate your case.
