After an Atlanta Bicycle Accident - Why You Should Speak With a Personal Injury Lawyer

When anyone is involved in a bicycle accident with a motor vehicle, serious injuries may occur. Typically, bicycle riders are the ones who sustain catastrophic injuries, as cyclists have nothing protecting their bodies when they hit the hard ground after they are launched through the air.

Hiring an Atlanta bicycle accident attorney is one of the most important steps an injured bicycle rider can do following a crash. Having someone on your side who is looking out for your best interest is critical to the recovery of your case.

You may have many questions following your Atlanta bicycle accident: How do I find the right lawyer? How much will it cost me? Can I afford to hire an attorney?

Finding the Right Lawyer

When you are looking for a lawyer to represent your case, you need to look for experience. Make sure he or she has represented similar cases to yours, and ask about the firm's past case results. A lawyer with great testimonials and who has successful settlements and trial outcomes of similar cases is the best lawyer for your case.

You also want a lawyer who will go to trial if needed. Some lawyers do not prepare for trial, whereas others prepare every case as if it is going to trial.

Affording the Right Attorney

You shouldn't have to pay for quality legal representation up front. In fact, most experienced personal injury attorneys will not charge any fees unless they win your case. If your case is lost, then you do not have to pay one cent; however, if your case is won, then a lawyer collects a small percentage of your settlement at the end.
