What Does a Tuscaloosa Personal Injury Lawyer Do for You?

Sep 30, 2022 - Personal Injury, Tuscaloosa by

Often when potential clients come to our firm, they want to know what it is that we do and how we can help them. So in this blog, our Tuscaloosa personal injury lawyer will explain the basics of what it is we do for our clients. For specific questions about how we can help you, it is best to make an appointment with us so we can discuss your case. 

We Listen, Then Explain What You Can Expect

One of the first things we do when you come to us about your accident and personal injury is to listen to what you have to say about what happened. We will likely ask you questions that better help us understand the strength of your case and what your case may be worth. Afterward, we will explain to you what you can expect to happen in the process to recover the money owed to you. It is also at this meeting that we decide if we feel that we are a good match. If we decide to take your case, and you decide to have our Tuscaloosa personal injury lawyer represent you, we will also explain our representation agreement and how a contingency fee works. 

We Put Together A Case For You

Our firm will begin to put together a case for you. This can include gathering documents, speaking to witnesses, and preparing legal pleadings. It may also include hiring outside experts to testify on your behalf or conduct an accident reconstruction. Whatever is needed, our Tuscaloosa personal injury lawyer will ensure it happens. 

We Ensure You Understand Your Rights & Responsibilities 

Accident victims, according to the special circumstances of what happened to them, will have rights and responsibilities. When you are our client, we make certain you know what those are and that you make good choices to ensure maximum recovery. For example, it is likely you will be contacted by a representative or attorney from an insurance company involved in the lawsuit. When this happens, you are to tell them that they are to speak with a Tuscaloosa personal injury lawyer from our firm. This is to keep you from stating something that can be used against you later to reduce or eliminate your recovery amount. 

We Advocate For You In Court

It is possible your case may settle without going to court, but if it does have to be litigated, you can trust that we will be there for you, by your side, advocating for you every step of the way.

"ast year when my husband was injured in a car accident, I contacted Dell Cross. Immediately he and his wonderful staff went to work gathering all the information necessary to settle our claim. He explained every process, kept us informed and handled everything from the insurance companies down to the smallest bill.
