In this post we will discuss the things to look out for when you are searching for the best car accident lawyer to help you with your injury claim.
Do They Offer Appointments Outside of Regular Business Hours?
Some car accident lawyers are happy to meet with you outside of regular business hours as they know how busy you are and how difficult it can be for you to find time to see a lawyer. This is likely to be especially the case after you have had a car accident as you will no doubt be needing to attend appointments with your treating medical practitioners many of whom are only open during regular business hours. An added benefit to after-hours appointments is that you won't need to take any time off work which can be important as you might have already needed time off work to recover from your injuries and or to attend medical appointments.

Do They Offer to Meet With You at Your Home, Place of Work or Hospital?
Some car accident lawyers are happy to meet with you at your home, work or even at hospital. This can be especially important if you are at home recovering from your injuries. If you have children you might also need to stay home to take care of them. You don't need the added expense or hassle of hiring a babysitter when you have already suffered financial loss as a result of the car accident.

Do They Cap Their Fees at 10 % of Your Compensation?
Whilst most personal injury law firms are happy to agree to work on a No Win/No Fee basis* you might wonder what you will be charged if your matter is successful.
Generally most of your legal fees are usually paid by the at-fault driver's, insurer, the Insurance Commission of WA. You are then responsible to pay any shortfall which is usually deducted by your lawyer from your settlement monies.
In order to give you certainty and peace of mind B Legal Lawyers agree to cap the amount that you pay towards their legal fees at 10 % of the amount you receive by way compensation. For example if you receive $50,000 for damages in a settlement you will know that the maximum you will have to pay towards your legal fees is $5,000.
* It is important to be aware that if you are unsuccessful with your claim the Court might make an order for you to pay the other party's legal costs even if your lawyer is acting for you on a No Win/No Fee basis.
Do They Have Experience Working for Insurers?
In addition to having significant experience working as car accident lawyers for people who have been injured in car accidents, some lawyers have also previously gained invaluable experience working as car accident lawyers for insurers. These particular lawyers have likely been involved in advising insurers on liability, what amount a claim is worth (the quantum of the claim), the tactics for dealing with the claim and what settlement amounts should be offered to resolve the claim. As you can imagine this type of experience places such a lawyer in a position to be able to provide you with helpful advice about liability, the tactics for your claim and what settlement offers the insurers are likely to make.
