Our Georgia Personal Injury Attorney Fees
How Do Contingency Fee Agreements Work?
At the McArthur Law Firm, we charge personal injury attorney fees on a contingency basis. Contingency fee agreements work like this: Our firm advances the costs of the case. Thus, injured clients do not need any money up front. This then ensures all people have equal access to our justice system with experienced attorneys representing them. Once a settlement is agreed upon or a verdict is reached, the advanced court costs will be repaid from the recovery. A percentage of the remaining recovery will be paid to our firm as attorney fees. We fully explain the percentages at the time our clients review the retainer agreement.
This means that you do not pay anything upfront. Instead, if your case is successful, you pay our fees out of your verdict or settlement. If for any reason your case is unsuccessful, then you owe us nothing in fees. All the risk of the lawsuit is solely on our shoulders, in most cases. For this reason, if we agree to represent you, it is because we believe your case is strong. We also offer free consultations to injured individuals and families so you can learn your legal rights, free of charge and with no obligation.
Do All Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys Cost the Same?
Generally, all personal injury lawyers in Macon and throughout the state charge the same contingent fee percentages for attorney fees. This means that you will pay the same percentage no matter which lawyer you choose.
Some lawyers are not litigators; they do not take cases to trial. Their method is to accept a quick settlement offer from the defendant or insurance company. These kinds of settlements are often lowball offers and not in the client’s best interests. They then convince the client to take the offer. This way, the lawyer does very little work, yet still takes the same percentage but on a much smaller recovery. In the end, a lawyer like this can take fees from a lot of quick, low settlements, but each client is left with only a fraction of what he or she deserves.
An experienced personal injury attorney who is committed to getting the best results, not simply easy results, will typically charge you the same percentage in attorney fees as any other lawyer. However, with dedicated counsel on your side, you may be able to get a much larger recovery. This means you pay the same percentage for much more advantageous results.
Do not let a bad lawyer fool you. All personal injury attorneys are NOT the same! Find and demand the best. It will not cost you higher fees and you will recover more money.
At the McArthur Law Firm, for the same percentage of attorney fees, our lawyers fully prepare for trial and perform thorough investigations of cases. Therefore, the defendants know we are serious about going to court if we do not receive a full and fair settlement. If the defense still does not offer a settlement reflective of the damages you suffered, we will aggressively litigate the case in court.
