Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney
While many injured people recognize the benefits of legal representation following an accident, it can be challenging to choose the right attorney for your case. Accident victims often receive an overwhelming amount of information from attorneys. Raleigh personal injury lawyer Carl Nagle understands that quality legal representation can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. Before devoting his career to assisting victims of roadway accidents, he worked for years in the insurance industry first as an insurance claims adjuster, and later as an insurance company lawyer. With years of experience working for the other side, he stands ready to build a case that cannot be attacked or undermined by the opposition. At Nagle & Associates, we have assisted individuals and families throughout North Carolina, including in Asheville, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte and Wilmington.
Choosing an Attorney to Handle Your Personal Injury Claim
Hiring a personal injury lawyer makes things much easier for accident victims. A full service auto accident attorney handles everything for you. We gather all of your medical bills and records, handle all communications with insurance carriers, investigate the collision and identify all drivers who caused your injuries, and work with law enforcement to ensure that we have the evidence needed to win your case at trial. Frankly, the proper presentation of evidence coupled with a strong threat of a jury trial is the combination of factors that compels insurance companies to pay the highest possible settlement in a personal injury case.
Choosing a personal injury lawyer involves a bit of legwork, but with a bit of free time you can locate the right advocate for you and your family. Auto accident and injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they are paid ONLY if and when they collect money for you. Further, you pay nothing up front to hire an injury lawyer and almost all injury lawyers offer free consultations. This consultation can be accomplished by telephone or in person, and you therefore have an opportunity to speak with several law firms for free and to determine who you feel best listens to your problems, and who has the experience and personality to handle your injury case.
Factors you should look for in your search for the right attorney are experience, success rate, medical knowledge and background, personality and fee. Regarding our firm, Carl Nagle only handles motor vehicle collision cases and he is one of very few personal injury lawyers who worked previously for car insurance companies both as a claims adjuster and as an insurance defense lawyer. We have been extremely successful with our statewide injury law practice. Although we do not advertise at all on television, billboards or radio, we have collected over $290,000,000.00 exclusively for victims of roadway accidents. Mr. Nagle and his entire staff have extensive medical experience, and we also have worked directly with the best traumatic injury doctors throughout North Carolina. Our trial law experience has also put us side-to-side with the best forensic medical trial experts in the area. On legal fees, we charge the lowest fee percentage of any firm we are aware of – just 25% of settlement and 33% at trial (most firms charge 33% of settlement and 40+% of a trial verdict). Since we deal with larger cases, Mr. Nagle feels the lower fee percentage fairly leaves more money with our client, where it belongs. On personality, simply judge for yourself. Call and ask for Mr. Nagle and give him the opportunity to consider your family’s circumstances and explain how we can help to solve all of the problems arising from your accident.
Since legal consultations in injury cases are free for prospective clients, you should speak with several lawyers during your search for the lawyer who fits your needs. As you discuss the details of your case with each attorney who may represent you, you should try to get a sense of the attorney’s experience and plan of action. Topics to cover during your conversation may include the prospect of pursuing damages for past and future medical expenses and lost earning capacity, as well as the likelihood of settlement. A thorough consultation should not require a fee. The amount of money damages that you receive through a settlement or trial often will directly relate to the capabilities of your attorney. A qualified legal professional will be familiar with every step of the process, able to confidently guide you through it and consistently communicating with you regarding your rights and options.
