How We Are Compensated
We want to better explain how we are compensated in personal injury and accident cases for our services and the work we do on your behalf. In these cases, we work for you on a contingency fee basis, which means that we are compensated based on a fixed percentage of the recovery in your case. Therefore, the better we do for you, the better we do for our firm. This can be a win-win situation. However, if we do not recover on your behalf, we do not get paid for our services and the work we do for you. Contingency fees can vary depending on the case.
Understandably, less complex cases have a lower percentage fee while more complex cases have a higher percentage fee. We are happy to talk with you when you are ready in a free consultation about your case to explain the exact percentage associated with your type of case.
There Are No Up-Front Fees
We know that there can be plenty of financial stress in the aftermath of a personal injury or accident. However, to retain us as your lawyer and have us represent you costs nothing up front. In addition to a free consultation, no up-front costs and we also offer a 30 Day Client Satisfaction Guarantee.
Contingency Fees Further Explained
The American Bar Association explains contingency fees as follows:
In a contingent fee arrangement, the lawyer agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery, which is the amount finally paid to the client. If you win the case, the lawyer’s fee comes out of the money awarded to you. If you lose, neither you nor the lawyer will get any money, but you will not be required to pay your attorney for the work done on the case.
