NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Lawyers.com announced the launch of its Legal Costs & Outcomes Hub, giving consumers facing legal issues powerful free insights into how much their case might cost, what the outcome might be, and how long it could take—all before even talking to an attorney.
A Leg Up on the Legal Process
Legal issues often hit consumers without warning, making for a stressful time during which they must scramble to educate themselves on the issue they're facing. Meanwhile, the process of hiring legal counsel can be confusing and intimidating on its own, adding additional stress during a trying time.
The Lawyers.com Legal Costs & Outcomes Hub is designed to be a one-stop resource that consumers can immediately turn to upon being confronted with a legal issue to get vital information about what to expect in their case.
"We like to think of the Hub as a judgment-free, virtual guide that reduces the guesswork of navigating the beginnings of the sometimes-murky legal process," said Hitee Chandra, Director of Product at Lawyers.com. "Knowledge is truly power. Armed with essential information from the Hub, consumers are empowered to move forward with their case—or hire an attorney—with a clear head and the confidence of understanding what might lie ahead."
Backed by Real-World Data
The Lawyers.com Legal Costs & Outcomes Hub is powered by data aggregated from responses to surveys sent to hundreds of thousands of legal consumers who visited the Lawyers.com network of legal websites over the past several years. The Lawyers.com team aggregated responses and analyzed more than 100 distinct data points on case cost, duration, and outcome for many areas of law. The resulting insights were verified by attorneys with experience in the relevant field of law before publication on the Hub.
On launch, the Lawyers.com Legal Costs & Outcomes Hub features data on the normal price range, typical outcomes, and average length to resolution for the following types of legal cases:
- Labor and Employment
- Medical Malpractice
- Personal Injury
- Social Security Disability
- Worker's Compensation
When faced with a legal question, many people don't know where to start. Evaluating and choosing a lawyer for your needs and becoming educated about legal issues can be a daunting task. It's not easy to find the facts you need to make an informed decision, and the stakes—both personal and financial—are very high.
