How Much Will it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Car-Wreck Case?

You’ve probably heard lawyer advertisements promising you that you won’t owe your attorney anything if she can’t win your case.  Have you ever wondered exactly what that means?

Can I Afford to Hire an Injury Attorney?

BlaLawyers who handle personal injury claims typically do so on a contingency fee basis.  That means that the attorney’s fee is contingent on whether or not the attorney recovers a sum of money for her client.  If the attorney is not able to obtain a settlement or verdict for her client, then the cost to the client for hiring that lawyer would be free.  An attorney who works on a contingency-fee basis only gets paid if the attorney is able to obtain a recovery for her client.

If the attorney is able to obtain a recovery for her client, then she would receive an attorney’s fee, which would be a percentage of the amount of money the attorney is able to obtain for her client.

Winter Coats & Car Seats Make a Dangerous Combination

When the temperatures start dropping, we all want to rush to bundle up our little ones to keep them warm.  Crash test videos featured last week on the Today Show, however, reveal why we should be hesitant to mix those bulky winter coats with kids in car seats.  Because bulky coats are compressed in a car crash, the result is very loose harness straps.  The video below shows how that compression effect can result in kids actually coming out of their harness straps, resulting in serious injury.

Instead of putting heavy coats on your kids when they’re in the car, you can keep a blanket in your vehicle to cover kids (over their car seat harness) or put their coats on them backwards over the car seat harness.  The key is that you don’t want to put anything extra or bulky between the child and the car seat straps other than their normal clothes.

Do I Have A Case Even if I Wasn’t Wearing My Seat Belt When I Was Injured?

Even if you were not wearing your seat belt when you were hit by a negligent driver, you may still be entitled to recovery for your injuries from an automobile accident.Seat Belt Safety | Little Rock Personal Injury Lawyers

The U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that seat belt use in 2013 had increased to 87 percent.  While you’re less likely to be seriously injured if you are wearing your seat belt, that does not mean you are completely barred from recovery if you were not wearing your seat belt.  In Arkansas, the other side is not allowed to introduce evidence in court that you were not wearing your seat belt. See Ark. Code Ann. § 27-37-703(a); see also Grummer v. Cummings, 336 Ark. 447 (1999).
