Everything You Need To Know About Contingency Fees
Financial concerns should never get in the way of receiving support for your accident injuries. And yet, many people are reluctant to call a personal injury lawyer out of fear that upfront legal fees will cost them more than it’s worth. The truth is that many cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay legal professionals like myself when we win your settlement.
Anxiety over legal fees is common in my line of work. Yet, in my years as a specialist in civil litigation, I’ve worked on a contingency fee basis for many people and their families who went on to win compensation for their serious injury or the loss of a family member. There was no cost for them to reach out, and they only paid me when I was successful.
Contingency fees have several advantages for our clients. First, it ensures any client can hire an experienced injury lawyer to represent them after an injury or loss. This eliminates the barriers for injured parties with financial limitations or those who want to save their money for recovery.
Secondly, when a lawyer works on a contingency fee basis, the only time we get paid a fee is when you get compensation. In many cases, if you don’t receive a settlement, you don’t owe us a thing. That means when we take on your case, you can be assured that we’re confident we will get a good and fair result.
Calling a lawyer doesn’t need to be a financial decision. If you or someone you care about has suffered a serious injury, reach out to Lerners where we can champion your case for zero upfront fees. Our only goal is to make your recovery our priority.
