I Was Sideswiped By An SUV While I Was Riding My Bike. I Suffered A Broken Collarbone And A Broken Rib. I Don’t Have Any Money Because I Can’t Work. I Don’t Have Money To Even Hire An Attorney. What Should I Do?
Bicycle accidents in South Florida have caused many injuries and even fatalities due to negligent drivers who don’t know how to share the road properly with bicyclists. Cyclists should not have to suffer the financial stresses of the crash while having to deal with the physical injuries. It’s enough to have to deal with the pain and suffering that the wreck caused. Now is when you should be trying to heal and rest – not deal with financial worries.
There are ways you can still pursue compensation from the other driver and his insurance company without having to spend a dime. One such way is through a contingency case. There are lawyers who take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that they will represent you without you paying any money up front. If they agree to take your case on a contingency fee, then they will front all the money that is required to file your lawsuit and fight your case to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
If they make a recovery in your case, then they will take a percentage of your settlement to cover their fees. However, if no recovery is made and they do not win your case for you, then you don’t have to pay a penny. The benefit of going this route is that you are not required to pay any money until your case is won. And if your case is lost, the law firm will cover the filing fees, court fees and other expenses they paid for your case.
