Lack of Funds & Inability to Travel Does Not Matter
You and your family should not have to bear the financial burden because of someone else’s mistake. Justice should not be stalled due to lack of money. We are aware that a lot of people are hesitant to hire a personal injury attorney due to lack of funds and worrying about bankruptcy. Most injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. Silverthorne Attorneys is no exception. This means that you do not have to pay any fees out of pocket. We only collect our fees if and when we win your case.

The Difference Between Mediation & Arbitration
There are a couple of different ways we can handle your case. It is not our goal to take your case to trial but we will if it is needed. Most attorneys will choose to go one of two routes; mediation or arbitration. Both of these routes provide a way to resolve your claim by bringing in a neutral party.
Mediation is when the plaintiff and defendants lawyers sit with a third party present to come to an agreement for how to settle the case out of court. It is a negotiation process in which both parties come to an agreement in the presence of a mediator.
Arbitration, on the other hand, is more formal and is generally overseen by an acting judge. Arbitration is often binding, meaning that the decision the judge comes to will be final and further litigation will not be pursued. However, non-binding procedures can be used if both parties agree to proceed under that stipulation.
The attorneys in our office can help walk you through the process and will help you decide which course is the best to take for your specific case.
The Importance of Seeking Medical Treatment After Your Car Accident
Did you know that the days after your accident are the most critical? Even if you have been in a minor fender-bender and signs of injuries are not immediately present does not mean that you were not injured.
Fender benders and rear-end car accidents are the leading cause of whiplash in most car accident cases. And it can take days or even weeks to feel the seriousness of these injuries. That is why the car accident lawyers in our office suggest that our clients seek medical attention right away. Not only is it beneficial for your long-term health, it will also help your case.
For instance, if the insurance company sees that there is a gap between the time your accident happened and the time you began treatment, they may argue that your injuries are not that serious and therefore try to deny or lowball your claim. Always make sure you are doing what is best for your health after an accident. We will take care of the heavy lifting for you.
