What a Rio Grande Accident Attorney Does for Plaintiffs
Accident attorneys provide injured people with an advocate at every stage of their recovery, from initial consultation to final settlement or verdict. Without a lawyer, injured people are much more likely to experience pressure from their employers and insurers to settle for less than they need. People may be forced to spend hours on the phone with claims adjusters, investigators, and health insurers when they should be resting and healing. Insurers have even been known to pressure claimants by requiring visits with doctors who are hours away, offering extremely low settlements, or numerous tactics to delay claims.
Having a lawyer changes all that. An attorney is a protector, someone who won’t let you get pushed around by insurers or employers. If you don’t like the doctor the insurance company assigned to you, a lawyer can fight for you to choose your own. Your attorney can also negotiate with insurers directly, allowing you to rest while they handle the paperwork and filing. Having a personal injury lawyer levels the playing field, ensuring that your insurer or employer will deal fairly with you.
The Foremost Offshore Injury Attorneys in Rio Grande City
Arnold & Itkin’s most notable accomplishments include our work as maritime lawyers. Our firm represented a third of the Deepwater Horizon crew after the tragic oil rig explosion, four widows left behind by the sinking of the El Faro, and countless other offshore accidents and disasters. In those cases, we secured some of the largest results for our clients, allowing them to move forward in peace.
Our most recent work in maritime accidents have often included barge accidents and dredge explosions. Barges and dredges are among the most important pieces of America’s vast delivery system. Our country wouldn’t run without barge crews and dredge workers. That’s why we believe it’s our duty as Rio Grande City maritime lawyers to fight for workers who have been injured in barge and dredge accidents.
Personal Injury FAQ
What Can I Claim in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
You can claim any financial losses that were caused by the accident or were related to your injuries from the accident. For most cases, that includes (at least) medical costs, the cost of future treatment, lost income due to injury, and diminished future earnings if you’re unable to return to work. Any economic damages are recoverable under a claim where negligence is the cause.
However, in catastrophic accident cases, plaintiffs may claim noneconomic damages:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Losses due to lower quality of life
How Much Can I Recover For My Injuries?
The size of your potential recovery comes down to what losses your lawyer can uncover and prove resulted from your injuries. While some costs are obvious (i.e. hospital bills), there are other costs that are hidden, but no less real. What makes our Rio Grande City personal injury attorneys so effective is our ability to see the whole length of our clients’ lives.
That’s why our firm prepares every case using experts like:
- Healthcare experts
- Financial planners
- Other experts
We work with experts so that we can understand the full impact of each client’s injuries. By understanding those long-term losses, we can fight for a result that actually provides for the rest of our clients’ lives.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire You?
It costs nothing. Our firm takes cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we cover the cost of investigation, preparation, and litigation upfront. In return, we ask for a fee as a percentage of whatever settlement or verdict we win for you. If we don’t win your case, you owe us nothing. As a part of our approach, we pour all our resources into preparing each case for trial.
This approach has allowed us to win results like:
- An $8 billion verdict against Johnson & Johnson
- Billions of dollars in total results
- Hundreds of results worth $1 million or more
- Dozens of results worth $10 million or more
