Injury-causing accidents can cause significant financial problems for victims. After an accident, you may be unable to work and may require medical treatment for months or even years. Without an income and additional expenses, the thought of hiring an attorney to represent you may seem like a completely unnecessary and unavoidable expense. Fortunately, at the Yearin Law Group, we use a contingency fee arrangement with all of our personal injury clients, which means that you can retain quality legal representation without paying anything up front. In addition, if we do not recover compensation on your behalf, you will not owe anything in legal fees at all.
You Can Determine Whether You Have a Case for Free
The overwhelming majority of personal injury attorneys offer potential clients free consultations. This means that you can meet with a lawyer to discuss your case and find out if you have a legal claim to pursue without the risk of any financial loss. It is important to meet with a lawyer after any accident, even if you think it may have been your fault. Legal claims can be difficult for people without legal training to recognize, and failing to file a claim in time may cause you to lose out on thousands of dollars in compensation.
The Amount You Pay Your Attorney Will Depend on the Value of Your Case
Contingency fee arrangements typically provide that your attorney will receive a percentage of the total amount he or she is able to recover on your behalf. The percentage that goes to your attorney is generally around a third, but some lawyers may charge less or more depending on the circumstances. Sometimes, attorneys will use a sliding scale where the percentage may be lower if the case is resolved prior to litigation and more if he or she is required to go to court.
Additionally, the costs associated with litigation are generally paid back to the attorney or law firm after a successful result. Litigation costs can include things like filing fees, expert witness fees, the costs associated with document preparation, investigative costs, as well as others.
