I’ve Been Injured in a Car Wreck. What Should I Do?
The first thing you should do after an auto accident in which you have been injured is seek proper medical care. If your injuries are significant enough, and even if you don’t have health insurance, a visit to the emergency room is often a good idea.
If the accident was not your fault, the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage may reimburse you for your medical expenses. Your own auto policy may also provide a certain amount of medical expenses coverage to help you with the costs of treatment. Your insurance agent or your Little Rock car wreck attorney can help you determine the types and amount of insurance coverage available to you.
After you have received treatment for your injuries, it is advisable to contact an attorney to discuss your case and learn about your option. There is no cost for a consultation with a Little Rock car wreck attorney at the Johnson Firm, any information you provide is confidential, and you have no obligation to use our services. We discuss the facts of your case and help you make an informed decision about whether hiring a attorney is the right decision for you.
How a Little Rock Car Wreck Attorney Can Help
When negligence results in injury, an injured party suffers loss in various ways. The law allows an injured party to pursue damages to recover those losses. Common types of damages recoverable in a personal injury case include:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of ability to earn
- Scarring and disfigurement
When someone’s negligence results in the death of another person, family members of the person killed may recover damages for the wrongful death of their loved one. Wrongful death damages include:
- Medical expenses incurred prior to death
- Conscious pain and suffering prior to death
- Loss of the economic support of the loved one
- Loss of the companionship of the loved one
- Funeral expenses
If the actions causing injury are malicious or so reckless that intent to harm can be inferred, the responsible party can be liable for punitive damages to punish wrongful conduct and deter similar conduct in the future.
Insurance companies know all of the different types of damages an injured person can recover, and many times they will assume that you do not have this knowledge and will try to minimize the amount of money they pay on your claim. An attorney can help you in dealing with the insurance company, and make sure that your claim includes all of the types of damages available to you.
What Will It Cost Me to Hire an Attorney?
If you hire a Little Rock car wreck attorney from the Johnson Firm, you will not pay any money out of pocket. We handle cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we don’t recover money for you on your claim, you do not owe us anything.
If we do make a recovery for you, our fee is based on a percentage of that recovery. We agree with you on that percentage prior to your hiring us. Any costs related to your case will be paid out of the recovery, and if there is no recovery you will not have to reimburse us for costs.
In many cases, people injured in auto accidents will recover more money with the help of an attorney than they would if they pursued the claim themselves – even after the attorney’s fee is deducted.
