I am frequently asked, “How do attorneys get paid in a personal injury case or in an automobile case? Do I have to pay you up front? Is it an hourly rate?” I quickly put them at ease by telling them, “Look, this office, unlike some, does not charge you unless we recover money for you.” That’s commonly referred to as a contingency fee. Our fee is contingent or dependent upon recovery of money for you. You don’t owe us anything until you are compensated through your claim.
We have the same goal as you do, which is to recover as much as possible and as much as we can document that you’re entitled to. This is because the more we recover for you, in all candor, means the more we recover for ourselves in contingency fees. The important point is, if we don’t recover money for you, we don’t get paid. We’re going to work very hard, and we’re going to do our very best to ensure that we all, as partners in this process, do well. If you were injured in an accident and believe that you should receive compensation for your injuries, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney today.
