If you’ve been involved in a serious bicycle accident, you’re probably frustrated, scared and unsure of what the next steps are. That’s OK. Asking for help may be the hardest thing to do, but if your medical bills are rising and you’re missing extensive time for work, contacting a bicycle accident attorney is likely the best thing to do.
Making sure your rights are protected is an attorney’s No. 1 goal. While you’re not required to hire an attorney to open a personal injury claim against the at-fault person, pursuing a claim on your own is a risky and difficult move. Handling the claim yourself is time consuming and stressful, things to worry about on top of your own recovery.
So how much does it cost to hire a bicycle accident lawyer in Washington State? The answer is $0. The attorneys at Davis Law Group, P.S., operate on what is called a contingency fee, meaning you only pay after your case is settled. This means the lawyer is paid a percentage of the amount recovered for you.
Attorney Chris Davis believes bicycle accident injury victims have a right to speak to an attorney – free of charge. After an accident you have enough to worry about. Don’t hire a lawyer that asks for money up-front. You shouldn’t have to worry about out-of-pocket expenses just to have an attorney look at your case.
Most lawyers charge a contingency fee of 33 percent of the total settlement. For example, imagine you’re in a bicycle accident and hire a contingency fee attorney to file and pursue your case. If your case results in a settlement of $120,000, your lawyer receives $40,000 and you receive the remaining $80,000 to cover your losses.
