3 Misconceptions about Calling a Lawyer

by Staff Blogger | April 28th, 2016

At Skolrood Law Firm, we know that calling a lawyer following an accident is a big decision. You have so much to worry about that getting legal advice may be low on your list. That’s understandable, but we encourage you to bump calling a lawyer up on your priority list, as it can make all the difference in your recovery long-term.

Here’s a list of the 3 misconceptions that keep people from calling a lawyer:

  1. Cost. A lot of folks believe that calling a lawyer costs money, but at Skolrood Law Firm, that’s not the case. We don’t charge you anything for a consultation. We’ll hear the details of your case, give you our advice as to what you should do next, and it won’t cost you a penny. And if you do become a client, our No Fee Guarantee states that if we don’t get you money, you owe us nothing.
  2. Time. Another reason accident victims fail to call a lawyer is they’re afraid of a long, drawn-out legal battle. The truth is, most attorneys will do everything within their power to get you a fair settlement without going to court, and that’s true of the attorneys at Skolrood Law Firm as well.
  3. Work. A third misconception is that hiring an attorney is going to require a lot of work on the victim’s part. The opposite is actually true. A personal injury attorney does all the heavy lifting for their clients, so all they have to do is focus on getting better. In fact, one could argue that handling your own injury claim is far more work than having an attorney do it for you.
