One of the biggest reasons people avoid contacting an attorney is money. Many people assume that dealing with attorneys means spending a lot of money in legal fees. While it’s true sometimes attorney fees can be costly if your case has to go to litigation, this isn’t true when working with a personal injury lawyer.
In fact, most personal injury lawyers won’t require a deposit and work on a “contingency fee” which means if you don’t win, there is no fee. By working with a lawyer who works on contingency fees, you can be sure that you’ll get top-quality representation without incurring a great expense. This is especially important if you’ve already been dealing with hospital and doctor bills, and other fees due to your accident.
Contingency fees are incurred if the attorney you are working with can win your personal injury lawsuit. It doesn’t matter if the win occurs through a private settlement or due to a jury verdict in civil court, a win is a win. By agreeing to work on a contingency fee this means your attorney is fully confident that they will garner a positive result for you.
In order to bring a personal injury claim against a defendant you must have evidence that the defendant has committed negligence. Since determining negligence occurred can be complicated and at times difficult, personal injury attorneys will typically only takes cases they believe they can win on your behalf. For this reason, maybe personal injury attorneys will often offer a free consultation to determine whether you have a viable case.
