Far too often, people who suffer injuries in car accidents associated with negligence fail to take legal action to protect themselves. There are many reasons why they don’t move forward, but one of the most common is that they don’t feel as though they can afford a lawyer.
Before you choose to accept a settlement because you feel you can’t hire an attorney, know that this can be a big mistake. It costs you nothing to get started with legal matters in many situations, and you can potentially make more money by hiring a lawyer.
Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis and offer free consultations. This type of agreement means that you can speak with a lawyer about your rights and options for free when you need to file any claim following an injury. Even more, contingency fees allow you to seek compensation without having any upfront costs to you.
Here is how contingency fees work:
- You can meet with your attorney in a free consultation and determine what options and rights you have.
- Should you decide to hire the attorney, you can speak about a percentage of the compensation that the attorney would receive out of the compensation you recover.
- You only pay attorney fees if you are successful in recovering compensation, and even then, the amount you pay is predetermined and comes out of the recovery. Nothing comes out of your pocket.
Contingency fees make it so you can afford to have legal counsel on your side throughout the process without having to worry about additional financial burdens. You can have peace of mind knowing you get professional legal help to pursue compensation, and you only have to pay if you win.
