No Fee Unless You Win: Finding a Contingency Fee Lawyer Near You
Let’s be honest, most personal injury victims simply do not have the money to pay a lawyer upfront. More importantly, they should not have to! Between your injuries, medical expenses, and lost wages, you have enough on your plate. This is why contingency lawyers like Thomas J. Henry work on a “No Fee Unless You Win” basis.
Our law firm believes accident and injury victims deserve justice, regardless of their ability to pay for a lawyer. Under a contingency fee agreement like those followed by Thomas J. Henry Law, our clients pay us nothing unless and until we win their case.
What is a Contingency Fee Agreement?
A contingency fees agreement, often just called a contingency fee, is actually pretty simple. The agreement simply means a lawyer only receives a fee if the client receives some kind of monetary recovery for their case, such as a settlement, verdict, or judgment. Further, the lawyers that charge this fee is only collected after they win.
Unlike a fixed hourly fee, which often requires clients to pay retainers and recurring expenses as their case is pursued, lawyers working on a contingency fee receive a percentage of the monetary amount their client receives after they win or settle their case. Further, because the percentage is agreed upon by both parties before signing, clients are not left paying hidden fees and surprise expenses to the attorney.
What Happens if I Don’t Win My Case?
A good thing about contingency fees is that clients face little to no risk. Instead, the majority of financial risk rest on the lawyer as the lawyer must win the case if they want to be compensated for their work. If Thomas J. Henry Law does not win your case, you are not responsible for legal fees to our firm!
What Happens After My Lawyer Wins My Case?
When your lawyer wins your case, either through verdict, judgment, or a favorable settlement, you will receive financial compensation from the defendant.
