Accidents are, well, accidents. They can happen to anyone and at any time. But, what you do after an accident is in your control and can make your post-accident journey easier and better for you and your family.
In order to pursue a personal injury settlement there must be another party responsible for the accident who is able to personally, or more commonly through insurance, provide compensation. You must also have suffered damages in the form of a physical injury or emotional trauma.
Nobody plans on being in an accident. Well, except for maybe stunt drivers. But if you’re like most Americans, you’re not a stunt driver, so you probably haven’t thought through what happens if you get hurt in an accident.

Traditional PI lawyers are not incentivized to help you repair your car. This is because the settlement you get at the end of your case, which your attorney gets his fee on, does not include damages to your car.
Nearly across the board, PI firms charge 33.3% of the total case settlement or more — even if your case settles pre-lawsuit — and they have done so since the 1970s. Learn why in our article.
If you’ve watched TV or driven down a highway over the past 30 years, you’ve probably seen a commercial or billboard for a personal injury lawyer that promises “You’ll Only Pay if You Win.” They’re mostly telling you the truth. But they’re also leaving out important details about what winning means and how much you’ll get if you do.
