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.
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
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.
