Filing an Accident or Personal Injury Claim

Submitted by jrlaw on Aug 3rd, 2010
There are recourses available if you’ve had a Dallas car accident. While legal affairs are usually quite expensive, there are ways you can file a claim without being put out for a lot of money. In fact, you can actually file a claim for an accident without paying money up front. This is done through a contingency arrangement, which is a good way to make sure that the case you’re filing is worthwhile. In this arrangement, the lawyer doesn’t get paid unless you go to court or win, or unless you get a settlement.

In a contingency arrangement, the vehicle accident lawyer usually offers a free consultation. At this time, they’ll sit down with you and go over the details of your case. They’ll need to know as much as you can offer; be sure to bring all the relevant paperwork with you. The attorney will be able to tell you if your case has a good chance of winning. If it does, you’ll have to work with the attorney to come up with a concrete figure to seek for damages. This is a basic part of how this type of law works. Sometimes it’s hard to put a dollar value on some kinds of injuries, but this is where the attorney’s prior experience comes in.
