A car accident is an undeniably traumatic event. In its immediate aftermath, it can be very difficult to focus on all of the issues that need your attention—especially if you have been hurt and need medical treatment. While you may suspect you need a lawyer, it may seem like that is something entirely out of your reach. After all, lawyers are expensive, right?
Well, it is certainly true that legal representation in some situations can be quite costly. But that is not the case when it comes to hiring a lawyer to represent you in a personal injury case. That’s because personal injury attorneys work on contingency. To make the process even more affordable, your initial consultation with a lawyer will be free.
What Does ‘Contingency’ Mean?
The notion of a free consultation is pretty straight forward, but you may have questions about what it means for a lawyer to work on contingency. Simply put, it means that the attorney does not charge you a fee upfront to represent you or bill you by the hour. Instead, they collect a fee if—and only if—they win your case, and that fee is taken out of the amount you have been awarded.
The Advantages of a Contingency Fee Approach
A contingency fee arrangement offers you a number of important advantages, including:
- Not having to worry about racking up large legal bills that you would be responsible for even if you lost the case.
- Feeling confident that your attorney is putting forth their best effort because their success is tied directly to yours.
- Having high-quality representation that can go up against organizations like insurance companies that have deep pockets allowing them to afford attorneys to argue for them.
- Having a legitimate opportunity to collect the damages to which you are entitled—something you almost certainly could not do without the aid of an attorney.
