Car Accident Lawyer
An experienced car accident attorney should care about one thing, you, the client. If the attorney puts the client first in every case, all the variables of each case become less tricky. Every case is unique, from the facts, to the injuries, to the insurance companies involved, but putting the client first is of paramount importance for any injury attorney that wants to do this job the right way. At South Sound Law Group, we see our clients as the real people they are, not as the means for a paycheck. When we began our personal injury practice we did it with the goal of caring about our clients from start to finish. And honestly, even after your case is over, we still want to know how you are doing. It's no surprise that a large number of our clients are referrals directly from our past clients. We believe in building long term relationships. We want to be the family you turn to for help when you or your family needs help.
When you hire us, our Tacoma car accident lawyers and our legal staff get to work right away, contacting insurance companies to start your claim, gathering all the evidence available including photos, videos, visiting the accident site, and interviewing witnesses before they are lost. We also take the time to walk you through the whole the process, what to expect, and what you can do to put yourself in the best position to recover a fair settlement. South Sound Law Group handles everything so that you can concentrate on your health, recovery, work, and your family.
Accident Claim Lawyer
When you've been in an auto accident it's easy to get overwhelmed. You're dealing with your injuries, property damage to your vehicle, and likely multiple insurance companies. Juggling all of these things and trying to handle a car accident by yourself can put you in a situation that devalues your settlement. Remember, the at-fault party's insurance company's goal is not to help you and fairly compensate you. Their goal is to minimize the claim and pay the lowest amount they can get away with.
They will try and get a recorded statement from you before you see a doctor or they will try and get you to sign a HIPPA authorization so they can get all your medical records to use against you. They'll claim you aren't hurt and offer you peanuts, usually less than $1,500, to try and get you to settle your claim. Insurance companies don't like good car accident lawyers because their system is designed to prey on the unrepresented. How do you think they have so much money for all those commercials? It's not by offering fair settlements for people injured in an accident that wasn't their fault.
Our experienced car accident lawyers and legal staff understand how frustrating the whole process is. It's why we try and take all the stress off you and take care of all the heavy lifting. We help guide you through the process including treatment, we gather all the necessary documents for your case, and work with you to craft your demand to the insurance company that is tailored directly to you and your experience.
At South Sound Law Group we are a small family owned law firm and we think that is a huge asset. Large firms have massive costs and thus have to settle cases to get paid in order to pay their employees and their bills. It's easy for their needs to overshadow yours. Our car accident attorneys never liked that approach. It's why we built our firm on a client first approach and never looked back. We understand that you are a real person with a job and a family and being injured makes living your life really difficult and enjoying it near impossible. It's why we have strict guidelines on the types of cases we handle and the total number of cases we accept. Our guiding principle of "client's first" requires that we maintain a high level of customer care and attention for every case we accept.
Car Accident Attorney: Common Concerns
When searching for a Tacoma car accident lawyer, the most common question we get deals with costs. Questions like: "What do I have to pay upfront?" or "How much does a car accident attorney cost?" We don't want you to have any of that stress, so we work on a Contingency fee. This means there are no up-front cost or fees to you. We only collect if we are able to settle the case or if we are victorious after a trial. If so, then we take a percentage of that amount.
Our fees are competitive and, in general, we don't accept more in fees than what the client would get after medical expenses are paid. We structured our business this way so that there is little to no risk to you and zero reason not to call and set up a free consultation. There is no upfront costs, so even if you decide we aren't the right law firm to represent you, we hope that you leave with more information to make the right decision for you.
