Lead Counsel independently verifies ATV Accident attorneys in Brewton and checks their standing with Alabama bar associations.Our Verification Process and Criteria
Whether you were operating an ATV or a passenger when it was involved in an accident, you may want to talk with a Brewton attorney familiar with ATV accident law. As an owner or operator of an ATV involved in an accident you could be liable to for injuries to others and damage to property.
“ATV” stands for all-terrain vehicle, which is a vehicle whose motorcycle-like operation can handle a wider variety of terrain than other vehicles and its extra wheels provide greater stability at slower. A good deal of ATV-involved accidents are due to driver’s inept handling of the vehicle. Those injured may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and pain and suffering.
In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.
An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.
Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.
Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.
Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
Affidavit – A sworn written statement made under oath. An affidavit is meant to be a supporting document to the court assisting in the verification of certain facts. An affidavit may or may not require notarization.
