Why Do You Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you are reading this page, it is very likely that you or someone you love has been injured because of someone else's fault. You may be thinking about calling an attorney or considering handling your case without a lawyer. You may never have hired a lawyer before, or you may have worked with another lawyer in the past that you did not like. You may think you know as much as a lawyer about how to handle your case (you don't), or you may be worried at all the bills and telephone calls that are now coming your way. We know what you are going through, and we know what you are worried about, because we have helped thousands of other clients journey through the same thing that you are facing right now. We are willing to speak with you, and we may be able to help you.

Mike and Laura Myers are sensitive to the fears that people have about hiring a lawyer, especially people who have never had to hire a lawyer before, and who are wary of trusting anyone, especially a lawyer. Lawyers are frequently portrayed in a negative light in the media and in general in the community, but most lawyers are actually quite ethical. Mike and Laura, specifically, do not operate their practice in anything but the most ethical, honest, trustworthy way they know how to do it. We do not lie, we do not cheat, and we are not going to lie to you or cheat you.

Mike and Laura Myers are committed to being not only effective lawyers who maximize your recovery, but honest, ethical, and compassionate lawyers as well. Our office is an extension of our home and our family. One of the comments we receive most frequently from our clients is that when they step into our law office, they feel like they are entering a home, not a law firm. We welcome people who have never been represented before, or who have not worked with a lawyer before.

In most situations, working with a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer can make a dramatic difference in the outcome of your case. Here's why:

  • An experienced personal injury lawyer knows more than you do about what your case is worth. Mike and Laura Myers have more than 35 years of combined legal experience. They know how much your claim is worth, how much you are entitled to for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, future care, and the loss of enjoyment of your life that comes after being in a car wreck. They know that the single instant in which a wreck occurs changes everything, and that compensation needs to pay for all the damages from the wreck, not just some of them.
  • Insurance companies will not take you seriously if you don't have an attorney. Insurance companies do not make money when they pay injury accident claims. In fact, without a lawyer, insurance carriers are likely to offer you a very low settlement that does not fairly or reasonably cover the actual damages you have sustained as a result of your car wreck. Insurance companies respect good lawyers because they know that if they don't pay you a fair amount for your claim, your lawyer is going to expose their insured, the person who caused the wreck, to significant liability. Mike and Laura Myers level the playing field for you, and force the insurance carrier to take you seriously.
  • There is no cost for you to work with us unless there is a money damages recovery for you. At The Myers Law Firm, our clients never pay attorneys' fees unless they recover money damages. We also offer free consultations.

A Friendly, Open Environment

Many of our clients have never worked with a lawyer before. We understand that for some people, the idea of talking to a lawyer is unpleasant, or worse, threatening. From your first meeting with us through disbursement of settlement funds, we value your relationship as our client, and treat our clients with compassion, respect, and our utmost attention.
