Why Work With A Lawyer?

Serious injuries and accidents typically come as a surprise, and many of our clients understandably wish to resolve their case with as little disruption as possible. Some people assume that hiring an attorney to handle a personal injury claim requires significant work and expense. In reality, it is one of the most effective ways to manage both the stress and the costs of pursuing compensation for your injuries.

Some simple cases, such as a straightforward rear-end accident, may be resolved with the insurance companies without a need to retain counsel. However, if you sustained serious injuries or expenses and the at-fault party is hesitating to make a fair settlement offer, adding a lawyer to your team can be helpful.

Can I Afford It?

Many people assume that legal representation is expensive. While some clients, such as those with family law or estate planning matters, pay hourly attorney fees, personal injury claims work differently. Injury attorneys are paid on contingency, which means we advance the fees and costs associated with bringing your claim. If we succeed and recover compensation, we collect a percentage of the award and the remainder goes to you.

Because your initial consultation is free and we only collect fees if we win for you, there is no financial risk to discussing your case with a lawyer. In addition, insurance companies tend to take claims more seriously when there is an attorney involved. Legal representation nothing up-front and it can greatly increase your eventual settlement. The real question is: Can you afford not to hire an attorney for your injury claim?

At Lewis, Lewis & Ferraro, LLC, we are proud to help clients resolve their personal injury matters as swiftly and effectively as possible. In our decades of experience, we have developed a reputation that causes insurance companies to sit up and take notice — which leads to results for our clients.
