As one of Las Vegas, Nevada’s top car accident injury law firms, we’ve seen all kinds of auto cases. One thing remains consistent: victims who hire a lawyer get better outcomes than those who don’t.

If you’re hesitant to hire a car accident attorney because you have questions, Henness & Haight is here to put your mind at ease with the answers. We’ll start with these answers to the three questions people ask us the most.

When should I hire a lawyer?

If you’re injured in an accident, hire a car accident attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you hire an attorney, the easier it will be for you to show the severity of your injuries. It will also be simpler to prove that the accident caused the injuries. That means quickly contacting an attorney can improve your chances of winning and increase the total amount your case could be worth.

Additionally, Nevada law gives you just two years to file a personal injury claim. So, you need to get your case started quickly.

One common misconception preventing some people from contacting a lawyer quickly is believing it means more billed hours for the attorney. Personal injury cases don’t work that way. We don’t bill you for out-of-pocket costs like a typical attorney. Instead, we get paid through a percentage of the final settlement or award. Don’t let the fear of getting “overbilled” keep you from contacting a law firm as soon as possible after your accident.

How much does a lawyer cost?

You can get help from a car accident attorney at no upfront cost. That means you don’t have to dip into your savings, go into debt, or borrow money from family or friends.

The cost of a lawyer varies depending on the type of law in question. Reputable personal injury attorneys, like Henness & Haight, work on a contingency basis. So, we only get paid when you win your case. The initial consultation is free, and we cover the costs of the case. Then, we get a percentage of the final settlement or the damages awarded.

How much is my case worth?

Every case is slightly different, and the details will determine what your case is worth. Many factors affect the worth of your case. Your role in the accident, your ability to work now and in the future, your level of pain and suffering, your earning potential, lost wages, the severity of your injuries, the cost of current and future medical bills, and other details of the incident can all impact your case’s value.

The best way to get a better idea of what your case will be worth is to let one of our experienced attorneys review your case. We can review your case at no cost to you.
