Don't think you can afford a personal injury attorney?
Being injured in a serious accident can place you in an incredibly difficult position. Not only do you have to pay for the cost of emergency medical treatment, you may also be facing large bills for hospitalization, surgery, and medication, as well as wondering how you will be able to afford paying for the ongoing rehabilitative care you will need to make a full recovery.
To make matters worse, you may still be losing income as you take time off from work to heal from your injuries, and you might be looking at a future of reduced earning power due to a partial or even total disability. Paying legal fees to have an attorney represent you in your accident claim may be the last thing you can imagine doing.
No Fee Unless You Collect
Fortunately, when you hire Colorado Springs personal injury attorney from Clawson & Clawson, LLP, you will not have to pay us a dime up front.
We understand what you are going through, which is why we work on a contingency fee basis. With contingency fees, the client is not charged a retainer and does not even have to pay the attorney a fee unless the case is won. This means that we only get paid if we are successful in recovering an insurance settlement or jury verdict in your favor, and at that point we simply collect a fee based on an agreed-upon percentage.
Contingency fees make it possible for people from all walks of life to secure justice, regardless of whether you have the financial resources to pay for an attorney up front.
Maximizing Your Accident Claim
It is a common occurrence that an insurance company representative will caution a claimant against hiring an attorney, using the fact of contingency fees as a reason not to retain legal representation. After all, they say, you will have to give up a portion of your final settlement, and why would you want to do that? What they won't tell you is that people who hire lawyers to represent them against an insurance company will typically end up receiving significantly more compensation for their injuries than people who go without legal representation.
Even after subtracting our fee, you should be able to walk away with far more than you would have received otherwise. There are cases in which hiring legal representation would not benefit the claimant, but if you have suffered serious or catastrophic injuries or have lost a loved one in a case of wrongful death, then it is almost certainly in your best interest to hire a dedicated attorney to fight for you.
