Although the idea of filing a lawsuit can seem intimidating, it is not helpful for your mental health to obsess over stereotypes. When filing a personal injury claim, you must consider five facts to ensure your legal process is conducted as efficiently as possible.

1. You don’t have to pay an initial cost or fee

Abogados Campeones works on a contingency fee model, meaning you will only have to pay us if we obtain a successful outcome for your claim. No matter your financial situation, you are entitled to quality legal representation.

2. Most cases are resolved before you have to go to court

Only some people realize that going to trial is expensive and can take a long time before getting any verdict, so both parties in a lawsuit often try to avoid it. In most cases, an experienced personal injury attorney will know how to negotiate and settle your claim out of court. If necessary, we are more than prepared to defend you in court.

3. Most negotiations are done directly with the defendant’s insurer

The party responsible for your injuries will not necessarily be responsible for directly paying for your damages and losses. In many cases, it is the defendant’s insurance company that must provide money to the victim and is also the one that tries to avoid paying it.

4. A lawyer with a personalized approach will be more valuable than working with a firm with thousands of employees

Instead of getting carried away by advertising that talks about thousands of cases resolved per month, it is better to focus on working with a lawyer who knows how to recognize your losses and help you design strategies that suit your needs.

5. You do not have to meet in person with your lawyer to win your case

Traveling to meet with your attorney can be complicated, especially if you still suffer from the aftermath of your injuries. To make the process easier for you, we can handle your claim without you having to leave home. Our staff will keep you informed, and whenever you have questions, you can contact us by email or text.
