Some of the many types of personal injury cases we will litigate include:
Many personal injury attorneys do not charge out of pocket expenses that the client must pay. Instead, their fee comes out of the settlement awarded when the case is complete either in mediation or trial. This fee is an agreed upon percentage of the total settlement amount which is explained in the contingency fee agreement.
At Biggs & Greenslade, we also offer free case evaluations where we'll discuss your situation, explain the process, and help you determine whether a lawsuit is the best decision in your circumstance.
A Contingency Fee Agreement is a written contract that explains that you owe nothing out of pocket to your lawyer for legal services. Instead, the lawyer's fee comes from a portion of the settlement awarded at the end of the lawsuit. If the case is unsuccessful, the law firm absorbs all legal costs so that you owe nothing.
You probably do not need a lawyer if the accident has not caused serious injury or significant damage to your vehicle. However, if you've been severely injured or a family member has been killed in a car accident, seeking legal counsel is crucial to ensure you get a fair settlement from the insurance company.

It is essential to your claim to get as much information as soon as possible about any injuries or property damages incurred. RIgth after an accident, rememeber to do the following:
Not apologizing may seem rude, but saying you're sorry can actually count as admitting fault and could hurt your chances of winning a settlement.
A personal injury settlement is calculated using two categories of losses: monetary and non-monetary. Monetary losses are expenses with a definite dollar value, such as medical bills or auto repair costs. Non-monetary damages do not have a dollar value but are assigned one to calculate the total settlement. These damages are classified as "pain and suffering."
Most personal injury claims do not go to trial. Instead, a claim will usually result in a "settlement" between the two parties—the plaintiff (AKA victim) and the defendant. The settlement is the agreed-upon compensation for the damages awarded to the plaintiff.
