Think you can’t afford a personal injury attorney. You can!

IMG_2987

My wife returned from the nail salon. She told me the guy doing her nails was from the Philippines. He asked my wife what her husband did for a living. My wife told him, “He’s a personal injury attorney.” He then told her his story of how he was in an accident a few years ago and the insurance “got him.” That is, he did not know an attorney and thought he could not afford one, so he handled his claim himself. Before he knew it, he was signing papers and later received a check in the mail for $2,000.00. Days after he settled, he called the insurance company complaining of neck and back pain, but the insurance company told him it was too late because he already signed for and accepted the $2,000.00 in settlement money. Yes, the insurance company “got him”—all because he thought he could not afford to pay an attorney. He could have afforded an attorney.

You can afford to pay a personal injury attorney.

Most (if not all) personal injury attorneys are paid on a contingency basis. “Contingency” simply means you do not pay the attorney a penny up front, and the attorney only gets paid a fee and paid back money spent on your case after the attorney recovers a settlement or court judgment for you. The attorney is paid out of the gross settlement or judgment that the attorney gets for you. If the attorney does not settle your case or win a judgment for you in court, you do not owe the attorney a dime if you sign a contingency agreement with your attorney. Our firm works on contingency, and we won’t even charge you a fee to review your case. It is that simple.

Example 1 below is a situation in which a person is injured in an accident, and the case is settled without filing a lawsuit:

Example 1: For demonstration purposes only

Gross settlement without a lawsuit being filed: $100,000.00
Minus: Attorney fees (one-third of the gross settlement) ($33,333.33)
Minus: Case expenses (example only) ($150.00)
Minus: Total medical bills caused by the accident ($10,000.00)
TOTAL NET SETTLEMENT TO THE INJURED PERSON: $56,516.67

Example 2 below is a situation in which a person is injured in an accident, and the case is settled or a judgment is entered after filing a lawsuit in your case:

Example 2: For demonstration purposes only

Gross settlement or judgment after a lawsuit is filed: $100,000.00
Minus: Attorney fees (40% of the gross settlement) ($40,000.00)
Minus: Litigation expenses (example only) ($150.00)
Minus: Total medical bills caused by the accident ($10,000.00)
TOTAL NET SETTLEMENT TO THE INJURED PERSON: $49,850.00

 

In Examples 1 and 2 above, you pay us nothing up front. We get paid only if you get paid.
