Study Confirms: Injury Victims With A Lawyer Get Settlements 3.5 Times Larger

In 2014, the Insurance Research Council released a research report entitled, “Attorney Involvement in Auto Injury Claims.

The study confirmed that, on average, injury victims who were represented by a lawyer received settlements more than 3.5 times larger than those who settled on their own (without a lawyer).

This finding mirrors the results of previous studies done by the insurance industry (some date as far back as the late 20th century).

An Example

Accordingly, if an insurance company paid someone not represented by a lawyer $10,000 dollars, then a person with the exact same injury who was represented by a lawyer would likely receive around $35,000 dollars.

That is an extra $25,000 in settlement dollars.

Settlement Without Lawyer$10,000
Settlement With Lawyer$35,000
Difference $25,000

Of course, there is a fee for hiring an injury lawyer.  At Creekside Injury Law, we only get paid when you get paid.

Therefore, you will not pay us anything up-front.  Instead, we will work to get you the largest settlement possible and then we will get a percentage of the settlement.

Most injury lawyers take 33.34% of the settlement.  However, we normally only take 30% of the settlement.

Here’s how it looks:

Settlement Without Lawyer$10,000
Settlement With Lawyer$35,000
Increase $25,000
Creekside Injury Law’s %30%
Settlement After Our Fees$24,500
Increase After Our Fees$14,500

As you can see, even with our legal fees, the total settlement is $14,500 dollars larger than settling an injury case without our help.

FREE Case Review

“I was in a bad car accident resulting in a broken foot and a few other minor injuries.  Matt from the very beginning was extremely helpful in educating me on all of the lawyer terms and insurance talk, taking much needed stress from me, especially while healing.  


Matt was always very patient, understanding and informative.  Matt always kept me up-to-date and in the loop with every big or small step in this process.  Matt did everything I asked and always made me feel a priority.  


I appreciate all of the work Matt has done to help me this last year, not only with relieving stress due to medical bills, but for also helping me emotionally.”
