How Do I Hire an Attorney?

Posted Thu 18th Jun, 2015 | by | on Attorney

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you’re probably wondering what your options are.  You wonder if you should try to handle your claim yourself or if you should hire an attorney.  For those who decide on an attorney, the next question is how do I hire one?  While the legal process can be complicated and confusing, hiring an attorney shouldn’t be.  The Denver injury attorneys at Kidneigh & Kaufman are here to help you navigate your injury case and obtain a settlement that will fairly compensate you for your injuries.


While hiring an attorney may seem overwhelming, it really isn’t.  It all starts with a simple phone call.  Our Denver accident attorneys are available to speak with you regarding your case and will do so at no charge.  Simply call us today and explain how you got hurt and what your injuries are.  If it sounds like a case we would want to handle, we will set up an in-person meeting to discuss your case in more detail.  Again, this consultation is free!  If our Denver injury attorneys feel you have a case worth pursuing, they will go over our fee agreement with you and explain the process of how your case will be handled.  After that, your only job is to complete your medical treatment and get better.  It really is that easy!  And because we handle cases on a contingent fee basis, you don’t need to worry about coming up with money to pay us to get started on your case. 


When deciding whether to hire an attorney, think about the alternative.  Most clients who come to me have already had some contact with the insurance company, and even the slightest bit can leave them uneasy and well aware that the insurance company is most definitely not on their side.  Every year, countless injured persons repeat almost precisely the same concerns that other injured persons mentioned before they decided to hire an attorney.  Ask yourself if any of these complaints sound familiar: “My claims representative will not call me back.”, and then, when he/she finally called back, “My claims representative told me that I did not need to get an attorney because it would only take away from my settlement, but then offered me a settlement amount that is much lower than even my medical bills and won’t compensate me for my pain and suffering.”  Or, “I would never have called a lawyer, but they have been so rude to me for so long, I felt like I had to.”


The great majority of people injured in an accident were never looking for trouble, and would go well out of their way to avoid it. Regrettably, once a person is injured, problems will inevitably find them, because they cannot magically undo their injuries.  Making matters worse, harm is frequently offered in the guise of help by employees of the big insurance companies.  Don’t let an insurance company shortchange you on your valid claim.  Call the injury attorneys at Kidneigh & Kaufman today for a FREE consultation! 303-393-6666
