How Can I Afford a Personal Injury Attorney?

Injured people who were harmed in car wrecks or by medical malpractice do not need to have any money to afford a personal injury attorney. Our firm works on contingency fee basis, meaning our clients pay nothing unless a settlement or verdict is paid to them. In this video, lawyer Caleb Walker explains how attorney fees work.

So, because our firm represents one hundred percent injured parties, all of our cases are handled on what’s called a contingency fee. Meaning, our clients don’t pay any attorney’s fees or expenses of the case up front. As the case is ongoing, when we make a recovery either through a settlement or a jury verdict, our attorney’s fees and the expenses of the case are deducted from that recovery. The advantage is that the client doesn’t have to shoulder that burden as the case is ongoing. When injured people try to handle a claim on their own, insurance companies one hundred percent of the time will offer them less money. Just because an individual without legal representation poses less of a threat of actually obtaining a jury verdict and a judgment on that claim. When we consult with clients on whether they could handle a claim on their own and obtain it, what we would consider a fair result. One thing we look at is the fee that we would charge on a case after that is accounted for: Are we still going to be able to obtain a better result for the client then we would expect they would be able to obtain on their own? So, unless our involvement in the case is going to add value for the client, we wouldn’t be serving a productive purpose in the case.
