What are the costs involved in pursuing a medical
Many attorneys who handle personal injury cases
work on a "contingency fee" basis. This usually means
that the attorney will not charge the client an hourly
rate for his or her services. Instead, the attorney
will be paid a percentage of any recovery that may
result from a settlement, award, or judgment. With a
contingency fee agreement, the attorney is paid
only if he or she is able to obtain a settlement,
award, or judgment for the client. In addition, many
of these attorneys also wait until the resolution of
the case to recover for expenses (such as expert fees,
deposition costs, and so forth). Thus, financial
concerns should not prevent someone who suspects
that they may have been the victim of personal injury
contacting a qualified attorney.
Our law firm, together with the network of other
law firms that we work with, helps victims of
personal injury nationally.
