When to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
The human body is a fragile organism, and there are thousands of ways to suffer an injury. In some cases, an accident will “just happen” with nobody to blame. In other cases, the accident can be traced to carelessness or even an intentional act. When you are injured through the fault of another, personal injury law is designed to provide you with full financial compensation.
The stark reality, however, is that merely having a personal injury claim under doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to actually collect it. Winning a personal injury claim – either in court or (more commonly) at the settlement table – is a tricky process that requires experience, legal knowledge, street smarts, and a thorough understanding of human psychology.
Types of Cases We Handle

No Up-Front Legal Fees
Once we accept your case, we invest all the time and resources necessary to obtain the largest settlement or award possible. It is important to understand that every case is unique, and a positive outcome is not guaranteed, however, we have a very successful record of winning cases for our clients. Contact our Albany personal injury lawyers today to learn how we may be able to help you.
What is a Contingency Fee?
There are typically no up-front legal fees for a personal injury or wrongful death suit. Instead, like many law firms, we charge a ‘contingency fee,’ which is a percentage of the monies obtained. Because attorneys charge similar fees, your focus should be finding the best injury lawyers you can to maximize the potential settlement or award.
Let Us Handle Your Claim for You
The recovery period following a personal injury is a difficult time to be handling a claim, especially against a stingy insurance company or a stubborn defendant. Insurance companies, in particular, will try to take advantage of you financially, by playing on your physical weakness and emotional vulnerability to get you to accept a settlement that is worth far less than what you deserve.
At E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, we will have a good idea of how much your claim is worth very early on. Indeed, personal injury claims are almost always worth more than simple reimbursement of medical expenses. Let us do the negotiating for you, while you make the important decisions. Our aim is to keep the experience as stress-free as possible for you.
