Contingency Fees in Personal Injury Litigation
By Armstrong Lee Savage LLP
September 27, 2017
Armstrong Lee Savage LLP works on a contingency fee basis for personal injury claims. A contingency fee arrangement is one where a client pays a law firm a portion of the recovery—but only if the law firm wins money on his or her behalf. In other words, you would owe our firm nothing unless we recover money for you—whether through settlement or a judgment after trial.
When you or a loved one are injured, the last thing you should or want to worry about is whether you can afford to pursue a valid claim. While corporate defendants and insurance companies may be able to afford a high-dollar lawyer, the average person often cannot afford the high hourly rates that these attorneys charge. All litigation is expensive, and we recognize that fact. That is why with our Firm you pay nothing up front. Our experienced team of attorneys thoroughly reviews each case at the outset and determines whether the Firm is able to cover the out-of-pocket expenses associated with your case, including:
- Investigating the claim
- Ordering medical bills and records
- Filing a lawsuit
- Hiring expert witnesses
- Legal research
- Deposition costs.
We cannot guarantee that you will win your case. But if we take your case on a contingency fee basis, we are comfortable putting our own money on the line because we think that you have a case that we can win for you. If we do not win, then you do not owe us anything—not even for the expenses that we have incurred on your case.
Each case is different and, therefore, each contingency arrangement is different. When you hire us, we will explain to you in detail how the amount is calculated.
