How Do I
Know Whether I Really Have a Case?
If you have been injured by someone else, you have a
case. This applies in such situations as those involving vehicles,
trains, airplanes, power equipment, and other devices, if the
person who was operating the equipment acted carelessly.
Carelessness is often defined in terms of negligence, which
essentially means that one has failed to act reasonably under a
certain set of circumstances. For example, if a driver failed to
yield the right-of-way, and in turned caused an accident, that
person would be negligent and therefore responsible for the injured
party's damages. These responsibilities would include compensation
for pain and suffering, disfigurement, permanent disability,
amputation, paralysis, and death.
Hire an Attorney?
It is strongly advised that you hire an attorney if you've been
injured, because you are likely to receive a larger settlement than
you would without representation. Not all attorneys, however, have
the same qualifications; just because someone graduated law school,
they are not necessarily capable of dealing with all cases that
come their way. It's wise to hire an attorney who specializes in
handling the type of case you've presented.

What Does it Cost to Hire an
Attorney?For those who've been injured, they
should reasonably expect that their attorney will only be paid if a
recovery is made. This type of agreement is referred to as a
"Contingency Fee Contract," in which the attorney receives a
percentage of the recovery amount. The approved amounts for these
fees vary from 33.3% to 50%, based upon the intensity and scope of
the case. However, a lot of matters are paid on an "hourly
basis". The hourly fee will vary depending on your attorneys
