Have you been injured but you do not have the money to pay an attorney to handle your case? Don’t worry. When someone sustains personal injuries, you do not have to pay for the best attorney until the case is resolved in your favor. All personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. That means the attorney gets paid one third of the settlement of the case at the end.
Furthermore, almost all personal injury attorneys will meet with you for a free consultation just to let you know if you have a meritorious case at all. Then, if you decide to proceed with the case the attorney will have you sign a retainer that says the attorney does not get paid until the end of the case when you have received the money. Also, the attorney will most likely lay out the expenses to process the case and these will also be paid back at the end of the case.
Because of the contingency fee, you can get the best representation from the finest attorneys in New York without having to expend large sums on attorneys’ fees and expenses on the case.
So, if you have been injured, don’t be afraid to call a personal injury attorney since it will cost you nothing up front and even if you lose the case the attorney does not earn a fee. If not for the contingency fee, the poorest people in the land can be represented by the best in the land.
