Last month, Iddins Law Group attorney Christian Pearson shared important advice for individuals who have recently been in an accident and are now facing personal injury insurance claims. Iddins Law Group can help you recover on any accident caused by another person.Because of their compassionate service and probate expertise, Iddins Law Group (formerly named Gagley Law Group) is also known in Kent as a trustworthy firm for wrongful death and probate.
If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to receive compensation for economic and non-economic damages including medical bills, lost wages, lost future income and pain and suffering. You are also entitled to compensation for the emotional loss you have suffered as a result. But not only do you need a lawyer to help with wrongful death insurance claims, you also have to distribute your loved one’s assets.
“We’re people-focused in everything we do, whether that’s communicating with clients, insurance adjusters or other lawyers,” Christian says. “Compassion is key. Our clients are dealing with the emotion and stress of the initial accident, the loss of a loved one, plus all the anxiety surrounding the probate process. It’s important to have an attorney who’s working to get the most out of your insurance, but also just helps you feel better. You want someone who answers your calls, offers regular updates and manages your expectations.”
Most of the clients Iddins Law Group helps are people working with a lawyer for the first time in their lives. It’s a foreign process, but Christian says they’re here to help.
Peace of mind
It’s important to speak to an attorney early, even if you’re not sure if you’ll need one. That’s why Iddins Law Group offers complimentary phone consultations, so you can receive guidance quickly.
“Talking to an attorney takes a lot of the questions away, and gives you a clear timeline of how long the process might take,” Christian says. “Every consultation is different. We may know right away that we can take your case, or may need more time to look over documents.”
Iddins Law Group is committed to fee transparency. In wrongful death cases, there’s no charge to the client unless they receive a settlement. In probate cases, your lawyer will look at the estate and determine if a probate is even necessary. They’ll let you know the cost up front, which is usually a flat-rate fee — not charged by the hour.
“Our passion is being trusted legal counsellors. Making money isn’t the point. We pride ourselves on being flexible, and going the extra mile for our clients even if it’s going to mean more work,” Christian says. “I have one client who calls me every week. The second I looked at her case I knew it would be an incredible amount of work, but I just couldn’t let her go — I had to help.”
