Frequently Asked Questions
Should I talk to the insurance company after being involved in an accident?
We recommend that you first consult an attorney before speaking with the insurance company. Insurance companies often brand themselves by using entertaining commercials and/or spokespersons in order to appear more approachable and friendly. But there’s nothing friendly about them attempting to prematurely settle a claim that could cost you thousands in lost compensation and unpaid medical expenses.
While it may be tempting to accept the initial settlement offer to move things along more quickly, in doing so you may be selling yourself short on compensation. This is where the experienced accident lawyers at Erney Law can expertly guide you through the process and get you all that you deserve from the car accident.
How much does it cost to hire an auto accident attorney?
At Erney Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that our fee is based on the amount we recover. Typically our contingency fee is one-third of the total recovery. We also front all of the costs and expenses for your case.
We offer a free initial consultation where you sit down with one of our car accident lawyers so we can learn how the accident occurred, go over all the details regarding your injuries and medical care, and determine if your case requires our help. We do this with no financial obligation to you. Plus, there are no case fees unless we obtain a recovery in your case.
What are the criteria I should use to determine the best lawyer to handle my auto accident case?
Each person is unique and should meet with a lawyer in-person to determine if you are comfortable working with that attorney or law firm. You should look for a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in handling your particular matter and will communicate well with you.
What is the process like when hiring an attorney for an auto accident case?
An experienced car accident lawyer will provide you with a free consultation with no expectations. The attorney will discuss the facts of your accident, your injuries, what you can expect the law firm to do on your behalf, and will answer any questions you may have.
How long does it typically take to settle an auto accident case with the insurance company?
There is no “typical” time frame for settling motor vehicle accident cases. Each case is unique. And while it is critical that you’re aware of the statute of limitations to file a car accident claim or bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party, you should first consult with a car accident attorney before accepting any settlement offer presented by the at fault party’s insurer. Once you accept an insurance company’s settlement, there is no going back.
The knowledgeable and experienced Columbus car accident lawyers at Erney Law take all aspects of your case into consideration to build the strongest possible settlement.
