Call (800) 863-5312 to Speak with Personal Injury Lawyers for Free.
When you’re in an accident, you have enough things to worry about. While you should be focused on your recovery, you are also inevitably worrying about your hospital bills, what will happen to the person who caused your accident, and how you could pay a lawyer to protect your rights. Luckily, you do not need to forgo legal action if you are worried about paying a lawyer upfront. Many lawyers will take your case on a no win no fee basis. Also referred to as a contingency fee basis, this means that if we don’t win your case you have no legal fees to pay.

Most personal injury law firms offer a free initial consultation. This initial consultation is a great way to determine if you are comfortable with an attorney before you hire one. If you are unsure about whether you have a case or whether you are likely to succeed with your claim, a free consultation is good opportunity to determine whether you want to move forward with a lawsuit.
No Win No Fee Agreement (Contingency Fee Agreement)
Attorneys who believe a case has merit will often take a case without payment up front. This kind of arrangement is known as a contingency fee. Instead of charging you by the hour, an attorney working on a contingency basis will only receive payment if your case is successful. If you do not receive damages or a settlement, you will not owe any legal fees for the work done on your case.
A contingency fee is an agreed upon percentage of the recovery. This will be discussed and agreed between you and your lawyer. When you reach an agreement on the fixed percentage, your attorney will put the agreement in writing and provide you with a signed copy.
There are fees and expenses that can arise during the course of a lawsuit. These can include;
- court filing fees;
- deposition fee;
- police report fees, and;
- expert witness fees.
These costs are mostly associated with trial, so they will increase as you get closer to your day in court. Remember that only a very small percentage of cases actually make it to trial, most injury claims are settled before ever having to set foot into a courtroom.
These types of fees may be included in your agreed upon contingency fee, but some attorneys will charge you for these costs as they occur – this is definitely a question worth asking when you decide on an attorney. You should ensure you understand how you will be charged for these costs before you agree to hire an attorney.
