It doesn’t cost you anything to hire us.
We work on injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t have to pay anything to us up front, and you never pay us anything unless we win your case.
If we do win your case, we charge you a percentage of the recovery, and get our expenses reimbursed. That’s it, there are no out of pocket, or surprise expenses or fees for you to pay.
This is different that how most law firms charge. Most law firms charge an hourly fee, or a fixed rate. With an hourly fee arrangement, the lawyer charges you by the hour, usually hundreds of dollars per hour. One major downside of this arrangement is that you have to pay whether the attorney wins or loses your case. You also have to pay case expenses as you go, which can cost you tens of thousands of dollasy.
Flat Rate agreements, sometimes called “fixed fee” agreements, can also cost you thousands of dollars, plus case expenses. Unlike hourly, or flat rate lawyers, if we take your case, we will advance all expenses upfront, so there is nothing for you to pay out of your own pocket. And, we only get paid our percentage if we win your case for you.
The Benefit of Contingency Fee Agreements
There are a lot of benefits of contingency fee agreements. First off, if you have been injured, you are likely dealing with medical bills, treatment, and mounting medical bills. Adding thousands of dollars on top of your mounting medical bills hardly seems fair – that is why we take cases on contingency fee basis, and we pay all expenses up front.
Under a contingency fee agreement, we have a strong incentive to win your case. And, unlike hourly fee agreements, we don’t get paid a penny unless we actually win your case. And, since we pay all expenses as they become due, there is no cost to you.
Since it doesn’t cost anything to hire us, anyone can afford our services! If you have any questions regarding your accident, or contingency fee arrangements, please give us a call. You can reach us at (210) 593-8709.
