Summary: Find out why speaking with a St. Louis car accident lawyer is one of the best things you could do after an auto accident.

Most individuals who have been involved in a St. Louis auto accident understand that they have the right to seek legal representation. However, some fail to do so, reasoning that lawyers are just too expensive. But just how expensive are car accident lawyers?

Most auto accident lawyers charge a "contingency fee", meaning the firm doesn't collect attorney fees unless you recover compensation. Instead of an hourly fee, your attorney will get paid a percentage of what you receive from a settlement or verdict.

Should You Speak With a Lawyer?

Yes. Regardless of the severity of your accident, most car wreck attorneys offer free case evaluations with no obligation. An experienced attorney will understand what steps should be taken to protect your right to compensation and can help you determine what your next steps are.

There are at least 3 benefits of speaking with a car accident lawyer:

1 - An attorney can help you determine the true value of your injury claim and advise you on whether you should settle your claim or fight for compensation.

2 - Your lawyer can help you figure out the long-term consequences of your accident so you understand what compensation you will need to move forward. This will also keep you from settling your claim to soon.

3 - Your attorney will be dedicated to protecting your interests. You can be sure that your insurance company has their own lawyers working hard to limit the amount of money you receive. Having your own personal injury attorney levels the playing field.
