Is Hiring an Attorney Expensive?
We work on a contingency fee basis when representing clients in personal injury cases.
The contingency fee structure allows us to receive payment after your case settles or you win a compensation award, and only if you win.
Attorneys receive a percentage of the settlement amount or a monetary compensation awarded by the court.
The contingency fee structure provides your attorneys an incentive to achieve the highest conceivable settlement amount or award for you at trial.
That is why personal injury attorneys usually try to only take on cases with merit.
You will agree on the percentage-based fee with your attorney before he or she commences your case.
It is important to ask your potential attorney whether or not he or she will charge you “case costs” even in the event that you lose your case.
If the same occurs, you will need to pay for any costs of representation such as filing fees and the fees for expert testimony.
