No Fee Until You Win

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, any other type of accident, or if your disability or accident insurance benefits claim has been denied, you might be asking, “can I afford to hire a personal injury lawyer” and “what is it going to cost me?” We understand – when you have been set back due to an injury or a denied insurance claim, legal fees should not serve as an obstacle to obtain deserved compensation. In such times, you are likely not in a financial position to pay a lawyer hundreds or thousands of dollars to have a lawyer represent you when you are seeking compensation for the same issue for which you are seeking a lawyer’s representation. This is precisely why we work based on a contingency fee, which means that we do not get paid unless you win.
Some lawyers prefer to bill their clients by an hourly retainer, which means that you will be billed for any work they do on your claim. For hourly fee retainers, whether the case is won or lost, the client will typically be billed for any call, email, or meeting with the lawyer or the lawyer’s staff. Fees can add up quite quickly and unexpectedly for clients who are billed by an hourly retainer agreement. Although we can spend numerous hours on your case with the goal of getting you the best possible result, you will not see a bill from our firm unless we successfully resolve and win your case, and your bill is capped by the terms of the retainer agreement. We believe that a contingency fee agreement is the most realistic billing method for clients, especially when finances are strained due to a life altering event, such as an accident or the denial of insurance benefits.
