4 Things You May Not Know About Personal Injury Law

July 13, 2022 in Uncategorized | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

You’ve been in an accident of some sort, and now you’re hurt. Maybe it was a car accident. It could have been medical malpractice. Perhaps you were a victim of a slip and fall. All these accidents put you in the realm of personal injury law. 

You may think you know a lot about personal injury law; after all, you watch an awful lot of legal shows on TV. And you may be right. However, there are things you may not be aware of. Here are just a few.

You Might Not Be Going to Court

It doesn’t matter what injury you sustained or what the circumstances were that led to it. Your Charlottesville VA injury lawyers at Martin Wren, P.C. Attorneys at Law may be able to keep you out of a courtroom. That’s because most personal injury cases settle out of court. Your lawyer will fight a pitched battle with the other party’s insurance company’s lawyers to garner a fair settlement for you.

Your Opponent Isn’t the Other Guy

You may think you’re fighting the guy who t-boned your car or the business that let ice build up on their walkway. You’re not. Your true opponent is the other guy’s insurance company. They’re the ones with the deep pockets to pay your claims. Depending on the severity, personal injury claims can get expensive fast. When you add up medical bills, lost wages and lost future wages, damages can run into tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.  

You Could Handle Your Entire Case From Home

With ever-improving internet security, you don’t have to leave your house to pursue a personal injury claim. Meetings can be held on the phone or over Zoom. Contracts can be electronically signed. You don’t even need a fax machine, or a laptop for that matter. You could deal with everything on your smartphone. Your Charlottesville VA injury lawyers at Martin Wren, P.C. Attorneys at Law want it to be safe and easy for you to proceed with a personal injury case.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Case Shouldn’t Cost You Money Up Front

It’s the industry standard nowadays to offer free consultations for personal injury cases like yours. It’s also industry standard to take on personal injury cases on a contingent basis. That means that your Charlottesville VA injury lawyers don’t get paid unless and until you do. They don’t earn anything unless they win your case for you.
