FAQs related to hiring accident lawyers in Los Angeles

You were injured in an auto accident and need an attorney to get a fair settlement. Car accidents and collisions happen frequently in California, and a considerable number of cases are reported from Los Angeles alone. Numerous personal injury law firms fight for accident victims and would be happy to offer a free initial assessment of your case. In this post, we are sharing a few FAQs related to hiring a car accident lawyer in Los Angeles for your help. 

Is it mandatory to hire a lawyer after a car accident in LA?

No. You can always file an accident claim on your own. However, this may not be the most advisable thing to do. Insurance companies rarely play a fair game with claimants, and the other party’s insurer may deny or delay your claim for flimsy reasons. If you have no experience fighting a car accident claim or lawsuit, lawyering up is a good idea. 

How much do PI lawyers charge for car accident cases?

Most injury lawyers charge a contingency fee. The fee is payable when you win a settlement from the other party or their insurance company. You don’t have to pay an upfront fee right away. The contingency fee is a part of the final settlement, usually ranging from 25% to 40%. 

How can a car accident lawyer help?

Besides determining fault and liability for the car accident claim, your lawyer is your best bet for negotiating with the other side and insurance companies. Your lawyer will ensure that your claim is backed by evidence, and if that means talking to experts and accident reconstruction professionals, they will do that too. Most car accident cases are settled outside of court, but if a trial seems inevitable, your lawyer will also represent you in court. 

How to find the right car accident lawyer in LA?

It is always wise to check for relevant experience. Personal injury law covers a wide range of cases, and you need someone who works on car accident cases typically in their practice. You should also consider if the lawyer is available for your case and whether they can work on a contingency fee. Reviews posted by other clients are also useful for comparing local lawyers, and you can always ask the attorney for a few references. Hire an attorney who is ready to bet it all to get you a fair outcome.
