Although it is morally and ethically right for an insurance company to provide an individual who has suffered serious injuries a fair settlement, their goal is to retain as much of their money as possible and limit the money a victim should receive. The insurance company will use an adjuster to pressure a victim into accepting an offer for much a lower amount than they’re legally entitled to. Personal injury lawyers in Fort Collins will protect a victim’s rights against the insurance company and negotiate the highest settlement possible.
How Much Are Legal Fees for Representation from an Accident?
A victim does not have to pay an attorney any fees for the case. The attorney will discuss the percentage they will receive if they win the case for the client during a free consultation. The attorney will only receive money if they’re successful in winning a claim against the insurance company.
When a Victim Isn’t at Fault
A victim who was injured because of someone else’s negligence has the right to file a claim against the negligent individual or their insurance company. An injury that is suffered because of an automobile accident, slip and fall, premises liability, faulty product, medical malpractice and any form of negligence is eligible. If an individual passes away due to the injuries they received, a wrongful death claim can be filed on their behalf.
The unexpected death of a loved one could lead to large financial loss for a family if the individual supported them. Funeral expenses, medical bills, and the loss of their income can be recovered through a wrongful death lawsuit. This type of lawsuit can be filed by a parent, child, spouse or personal representative of the estate and any money received will be disbursed into the estate and distributed according to the deceased individual’s final wishes.
