What Is The Cost Of Hiring A Personal Injury Compensation Lawyer In Fullerton, CA?
A personal injury settlement attorney at Holland & Holland Law Offices is paid on a contingency fee basis. This means that if we are unable to secure a settlement for you, you will not owe our firm any money. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. Specializing in personal injury law, Holland & Holland Law Offices charges clients a fee of 33% of the final settlement, and up to 40% if a lawsuit is filed. Other personal injury firms will use flashy “deals” to get you to use their services. In some cases, they will say they charge an introductory fee of 33% if they can settle the case within 100 days. In many cases, the fee goes up to 40% for settlements and 50% for lawsuits.
In Fullerton, CA, the average personal injury settlement takes about one year to settle. In some cases, depending on the severity of the injuries and duration of treatment, it could take even longer. At Holland & Holland, we believe in being upfront with our clients and not engaging in any misleading tactics for our fees. Our clients are our number one priority.
Common Tactics Insurance Companies Use To Deny Or Limit Your Personal Injury Claim
Insurance companies will make every effort possible to limit their liability related to your personal injury claim. One tactic insurance companies employ is attempting to make a case that the injury you received, whether from an accident, dog bite, or slip and fall, was already present before the incident. They try to minimize the severity of your injuries to pay as little as possible.
Another tactic is to insinuate that certain post-injury treatments are medically unnecessary and provide no perceived benefit to your recovery. They will make a false gesture of good faith saying that your treatments are needed, but are not making a positive difference in your recovery.
Finally, they will attempt to show that you are exaggerating your injuries, the amount of pain you are in, or your inability to work to reduce the amount of money they feel you deserve to recover.
The resources and tactics insurance companies use to minimize or discredit your claim is staggering. Having experienced personal injury attorney Derek Holland, from Holland & Holland Law offices, standing up to the pressure tactics can be the difference between receiving a fraction of the total amount you are owed.
My Insurance Company Has Offered Me An Initial Settlement For My Personal Injury Claim, Should I Accept?
We recommend that you never take the first settlement offer after you make your personal injury claim. Why is it important to wait? If you accept the offer, your case is closed. If you have more treatments needed for your injuries after you took the settlement, you will be on the hook for those future medical expenses. As part of the fine print in the settlement, it will have a clause that states you are unable to get more money because of future bills or pain & suffering.
After an injury, your focus should be on your recovery, trying to return to a semblance of normal life. Having personal injury settlement attorney Derek Holland fighting for you will put your mind at ease. His focus will be on dealing with all the noise related to your personal injury claim. That way you can dedicate all your mental power to your recovery.
