What Exactly Does Contingency Fee Mean?

What Exactly Does Contingency Fee Mean?

From my experience, people are often scared to get legal assistance after being in an auto accident or after sustaining other personal injuries. This mentality simply occurs because they don’t think they have the money to hire an attorney, or think that they can bypass legal help and receive greater compensation by handling the situation on their own. In almost every case, neither of the two thoughts above are valid.

Let’s start with the first mentality: a person thinking they do not have enough money to hire an attorney. At Injury Legal Center, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that there are no upfront costs. You don’t pay a penny to have a consultation with us to determine if you have a case or not. You don’t pay a penny if we do accept your case. You don’t pay a penny if we lose your case. Only after we win the case and reach a settlement, will a fee be deducted for our services – which brings me to the next topic.

The next mentality stems from the Average Joe believing that he can take the claim on by himself and get the maximum amount of compensation that he deserves, without any legal representation. In almost every situation, this will not happen. Our staff is thoroughly trained and vetted to handle these cases and know how to get you the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve. The response back is always, “Well, you may get me more overall compensation, but you still take out a fee at the end after you win…” While this is true, that we do take a fee after we settle your case, the compensation that you receive – even after our fees – is almost always guaranteed to be vastly greater than what you would have obtained on your own.

Even if you are still unsure about obtaining legal assistance, give us a call or drop us an email explaining your situation. See if we can help and are the right choice for you when it comes to handling your case – remember our consultations are free!
