If you suffer injuries in an accident and are seeking damages from the negligent party, then chances are you have considered enlisting the help of a lawyer. However, you may be worried about the cost of retaining counsel in your Mississippi accident lawsuit or question whether or not it will ensure victory in your case. For most legal issues, this is cause for legitimate concern, but attorneys typically handle accident cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay your lawyer anything unless and until he or she recovers for you.
According to the American Bar Association, you should seek counsel if you are seriously injured in an accident. In most accident settlements, an insurance company will try to undercut the damage amount you seek. This should come as no surprise as it is the job of the insurance company to pay out as little as possible. The less they pay out, the greater their profits. This is where an attorney comes in. Skilled Mississippi accident lawyers can help you achieve a fair settlement.
