Are You a Victim of an Auto Accident?

Most auto accidents happen close to home and they can range from minor irritants, fatal, or fall somewhere in between. Auto accident victims can achieve compensation for related expenses by filing a civil lawsuit seeking damages to try and remedy some or all of their injuries.

Legal Options in Auto Accident Cases

It is business as usual for auto insurance companies to offer settlements at the lowest possible expense to the company. An Umatilla auto accident attorney can negotiate with the insurer on your behalf to achieve the best possible settlement. If that is not possible, the attorney can sue the other driver and perhaps the insurance company, too.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
