Do I Have a Case for my Auto Accident?
It can be very difficult to determine on your own if you can pursue a car accident lawsuit. As noted above, sometimes there are factors involved that you may not have thought about, such as a defective guardrail or a defective vehicle.
In other cases, it could be that the intersection was poorly designed, or the city did not take the proper precautions in making sure that important road signs were visible.
Meanwhile, if you or a loved one were injured, you will have enough to deal with addressing those injuries and the financial difficulty they may present.
It can be extremely difficult and complicated to try to deal with your insurance company at the same time you are dealing with the physical, mental, and financial impact of an accident, such that it is hard to even figure out if they are offering your family a fair settlement.
There are some benchmarks, though, that you can use to determine if you should contact a car accident attorney.
WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A CAR ACCIDENT, ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
If you answered “YES” to even one of these questions, you may be eligible to file an auto accident lawsuit and should contact an auto accident lawyer at Chaffin Luhana.

How Much Will My Case Cost?
As a plaintiff in a car accident lawsuit working with Chaffin Luhana, you will not owe any money up front. We work on a contingency fee, which means that we don’t receive payment for our work unless you receive a recovery.
If you are awarded compensation in a settlement agreement or in an actual trial, your attorney will get a percentage of that award to pay for its attorney’s fees, as well as receive their out-of-pocket costs.
During your initial free consultation with one of our experienced injury lawyers, he or she will help explain the fees, so you can understand exactly how much of the potential recovery you may receive.
