This claim that is made by one of the prominent radio and television advertising law firms in the Chattanooga area is not any indication that they are better qualified to represent you than any law firm in a personal injury or negligence claim.
Adjusters and insurance representatives normally make a very low initial offer to injured persons to settle their cases unless it is a very serious case and there is limited insurance coverage and/or limited assets to recover from the guilty party defendant(s).
Most attorneys charge 33 ½ per cent of the total recovery but this is always subject to negotiation between you and your attorneys.
Lawyers who spent large sums of money on all forms of advertising such as radio, television, billboards, etc. have more pressure on them to encourage you to settle your case than other qualified attorneys who do not engage in the social media advertising war.
Many attorneys will agree to take a higher percentage of your recovery that is above the initial offer you may get from an adjuster. They may agree that if they do not beat that initial offer they will charge no fee and only a higher percentage above the initial offer. This will indicate that the lawyer may work harder on your behalf rather to obtain a bigger recovery rather than a quick settlement that primarily benefits the lawyers.
