Personal Injury Lawyer in Wilmington NC

Do You Know About Personal Injury and Your Rights?

If you have suffered an injury or lost a loved one as a result of another's negligence or intentional actions, then you are entitled to compensation relative to the severity of your injury, but that's not the only right you have in these cases. Because dealing with these types of scenarios can be such a stressful time in your life, hiring a personal injury lawyer in Wilmington NC will help you protect your rights. Of course, understanding your rights in regards to a personal injury case will also help you through this trying process.

You Have the Right to Hire an Attorney of Your Choice

When you are in a position to file a claim for a personal injury reward, the odds are that the responsible party's lawyers or insurance company will try and deal with you personally in order to minimize their damages. You have the right to refuse to deal directly with them and instead choose to be legally represented by a personal injury attorney. In fact, for the best chance at receiving what's owed to you, hiring an attorney to handle your case is strongly recommended.

You have the freedom to choose any attorney you want to represent you. The Rodzik Law Group and Rodzik is experienced with handling various types of case and know how important it is to pair the right attorney with you.

You Have the Right to Get Your Attorney's Fee Agreement in Writing

While most reputable personal injury lawyers do not charge a client if they do not win the case, it pays to understand how the lawyer charges his or her time in the event that the case is won. Asking for a contingent fee arrangement in writing will provide you with a concise explanation of the legal fees and other litigation expenses associated with your case.

You Have Right to Final Say on Your Case

As your personal injury case progresses, you may be provided with the opportunity to settle out of court or other processes like binding arbitration or mediation may be offered. Your attorney will give you his or her professional recommendations but ultimately it is your right to decide how to proceed. If you want to settle the case but your attorney doesn't agree, he or she has to honor your wishes and settle the case.

That said, it is important to listen to what your attorney has to say before you make a decision that could dramatically affect the outcome of your case. Your attorney is experienced at what they do and they have insight that you may not understand; listen to your attorney closely and respect his or her recommendations.

You Have a Right to Be Fairly Compensated

Many insurance companies like to make it seem like every lawsuit is filed by people looking to make money off of the system and that is why they have to charge such high premiums on their policies. This is simply not true. If you have suffered a genuine injury that was a result of their client's actions, then it is their job to pay you what you're entitled to. Insurance companies do not like having to pay out claims but that is what they are supposed to do when their client is responsible and by filing your claim, you're ensuring that justice is upheld.
