We Work on a Contingency Fee
If we don’t win, you don’t owe us a cent
You’ve been hurt in an accident. The insurance company is trying to push you around. You need a lawyer on your side, but with medical bills and other expenses piling up, the last thing you need is yet another bill.
That’s why we represent injured people on a contingency fee basis.
What’s a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is a fee dependent on the outcome of the case. If we get you a financial recovery, either in a settlement with the insurance company or a jury verdict at trial, our fee is a percentage of the money recovered. If we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us a fee at all.
Contingency fees are sometimes confused with pro bono work, which means legal work done for free with no expectation of payment. We represent injured people on a contingency fee, not pro bono, basis because there are many costs involved with handling a personal injury case: many hours put into research and preparation, plus the cost of taking depositions, hiring expert witnesses, obtaining documents, and so on. Charging a contingency fee gives us the resources we need to cover those expenses and take on the next case.
Moreover, the contingency fee arrangement means we’re deeply invested in every client’s case. If we don’t win for you, we don’t get a fee, and that’s as it should be. We don’t get paid to just put in hours; we get paid to get results. Your fight is our fight, and our only goal is to protect you from the insurance company and guide you toward a better future.
We’d be happy to discuss the contingency fee in a free consultation
Most personal injury firms work on a contingency fee basis, but the specific terms of the fee agreement vary from firm to firm. Our policy is to review the fee agreement in detail with each prospective client and make sure we address any concerns you may have before you sign.
If you’ve been injured, we invite you to meet with us in a free consultation, during which we’ll discuss the contingency fee and the overall outlook for your case. There’s no cost and no pressure to hire us, just answers about your legal options and how we can help.
