A Full-Service Personal Injury Law Firm for Olympia, WA
Do you need a lawyer?
That’s the most common question among recent accident victims. More often than not, the answer is yes – but the question itself highlights several common misconceptions about compensation for accident victims in Washington.
At Our Law Firm, Anyone and Everyone Can Afford to Hire a Lawyer
First, there is the myth that attorneys are difficult to afford. That might be true in certain contexts – divorce, high-stakes business transactions, and wealth management, for example.
But if you’re an accident victim in the state of Washington, the right law firm shouldn’t charge you anything upfront for its services.
That’s how we operate at Brett McCandlis Brown. As Olympia personal injury attorneys, we represent accident victims on a contingency fee basis.
This means that, in every single injury case that we handle, we will not charge a fee to our clients unless and until our firm is able to get them a financial recovery from the other side.
Insurance Companies Don’t Treat Victims Fairly. Lawyers Can Change That.
The second big misconception out there is that victims are likely to get a fair financial recovery without a lawyer.
In a perfect world, that might be true. But the reality is that insurance companies intervene in almost every accident claim in this country, and they fight with all their power to pay victims as little as possible.
Indeed, many studies have found that victims who are represented by an attorney recover substantially larger amounts of financial compensation than those who simply handle claims on their own.
As a matter of fact, many insurance companies will automatically reduce or deny your payout, until you hire an aggressive law firm. Essentially, they’re banking on the likelihood that you won’t hire a lawyer. Once you do, many of them suddenly become more willing to “play ball.”
That is the general premise of Washington personal injury law: Victims are entitled to compensation, but the wrongdoers and their insurers don’t make fair offers until lawyers get involved.
To make that system fairer, the right lawyers make their services available on a contingency fee basis – in other words, the law firm’s total fee is only a portion of the victim’s ultimate recovery.
By increasing the amount of compensation in many cases, attorneys are often able to put victims in better positions than they would have been otherwise.
As Olympia personal injury attorneys, we are dedicated to getting our clients the largest amount of compensation available under the law.
