You Are Always Our Top Priority – When you let us handle your claim, you can focus on what’s essential – getting better. Your well-being always comes first.
When you have been injured due to someone’s negligence, the financial burden can be tremendous. Between worrying about medical bills and lost wages, the last thing you want to worry about is how you’ll pay for a personal injury lawyer.
That’s why you will love our no fee promise. What is that promise?
With 25 years of experience in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, we’re very good at getting you the compensation you deserve. But at our firm, we do more for you. Some personal injuries, such as car accidents, cause serious damage to your property. We’ll pursue a separate claim to help you recover this loss as well. We offer this service at no cost to our personal injury clients.
The legal term for our No Fee Promise is a “contingency fee.”
This means that we don’t charge you anything for our services. Instead, we agree to help you with your claim for a percentage of what we obtain for you. This offers you several significant advantages:
When an attorney works on contingency, he or she gets paid based on what their clients receive. The more money our lawyers recover for you, the more they earn. It sounds simple, but this fact can be powerful, especially if you re nervous about who to trust with your injury claim.
If you hire a lawyer on an hourly model, you can bet one of their major concerns is how much time they can bill you for. They don’t have any incentive to get you more money. They also may not settle the case as quickly as they could, because the longer they represent you, the more they make.
Unfortunately, in a personal injury claim, almost all of the other parties don’t have your best interests in mind. Insurance companies may tell you that they’re “on your side,” but all they care about is how much you cost them. They spend millions of dollars every year on armies of claims adjusters and their attorneys so they can maximize their profits by paying you as little as possible for your claim.
With so many people against you, you deserve to have an experienced attorney in your corner like the ones at Console and Associates. Your recovery is always our top priority.
When you work with Console and Associates, we advance all the costs associated with your case. You won’t have to worry about paying anything up front.
But filing a claim takes money. If you try to pay for the process yourself or select an attorney who charges you hourly, you could spend thousands of dollars before you even address your medical bills. Here are just some of the things you’d be responsible for:
To pursue your claim for damages, we’ll need a complete copy of your medical records. This includes everything related to your injury, but also records from before your accident. To get compensated for your injuries, you need to prove that the accident, not a prior event, caused them. Getting a complete set of medical records can cost hundreds of dollars.
To prove that someone else is responsible for your injury, we may need to hire private investigators to gather evidence that the other party was at fault. This evidence can include witness statements, accident scene photos, security camera footage, and other important information. An experienced investigator is priceless, which is why the best can charge hundreds of dollars per task.
Expert witnesses are people with the training to make them an authority in their field. Their opinion on the details of your claim will help prove that the claim you make is a valid one. It’s not unusual for an expert to charge thousands of dollars for their services. You may need several experts to successfully prove your claim.
Court Fees & Litigation Costs
If you represent yourself, you’ll be responsible for paying certain court costs. Filing a complaint with the court takes money. Filing for your date, requesting documents, and notary fees are some common costs that could wind up costing thousands of dollars.
If you are seriously injured, Console and Associates believe that your only job should be focusing on getting better. Let us handle the complexity of your case. The value of hiring our team goes beyond the size of your settlement.
Since 1994, our firm has been helping victims get the compensation they deserve. We’ve heard from our clients how draining it was to try fighting the insurance company on their own. After they hire us, they often mention how relieved they feel to let us worry about the claim while they focus on healing from their injuries.
At Console and Associates, we do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible for you. Here are just a few ways we proudly go above and beyond for our clients:
When you could have one of the top Personal Injury Law Firms handle your case, why settle for anything less? Call today to learn what we can do for you!
Thanks to our no-fee promise, it costs you nothing to work with us. From the first call through the last day of the claim, you don’t pay us a dime out of pocket.
Because we work on a contingency basis, we only get paid if and when you receive your settlement. One question we get a lot is how much we charge after we win your claim.
At Console and Associates, we don’t nickel and dime you with fees. Instead, we take a flat percentage of your final settlement (in addition to any costs we advanced on your behalf). The percentage varies depending on various state regulations, but we’ll let you know the applicable percentage for your claim upfront.
We believe in price transparency. Before you agree to have us represent you, we’ll inform you of what this fee will be. If you decide not to accept our help, the consultation and legal advice are still free.
It might seem tempting to try to file a personal injury claim on your own. After all, with the information available online, you should find everything you need, right? But before you do, there’s something you should know: hiring a lawyer gets you more money.
A lot more.
According to studies, insurance companies pay claimants represented by lawyers an average of 3.5 times more compensation. Not only is that more than enough to cover attorney fees, it means more money in your pocket as well.
But it’s not just about the money. We have spent decades learning this area of law and fighting insurance companies on behalf of clients just like you. Attempting to represent yourself is like trying to save money by being your surgeon. You might be able to do it, but at what cost?
If there s an easy way to more than triple the amount of money you could get for your claim, why wouldn’t you? And remember, with Console and Associates, you don’t pay anything until you win.
In 2005, our client was in her car when another vehicle struck her, causing serious injuries. Before contacting us, she retained another attorney who urged her to settle her claim for $34,000. She had serious injuries that would affect her for the rest of her life.
Feeling that her injuries were not adequately compensated by $34,000, she contacted us. We agreed that she deserved more compensation, so she left her previous attorney’s and let us represent her. We settled her claim for $245,000, nearly 8x more than what her first attorney was pushing to settle for.
When you work with us, we always fight to get you everything we feel you deserve.
Our no-fee promise isn’t the only reason you should work with Console and Associates. Your ability to get compensated for your injury should never depend on your personal finances. The people who need justice most often are those who can least afford it.
Our commitment to getting accident victims the money they deserve is one reason why Richard Console and fellow attorneys Mike Ellery and Lindsay Sewekow have settled over $100,000,000 in claims for our clients.
Since we started helping victims 25 years ago, we’ve helped many people favorably resolve their claims. Let us help you.
The question isn’t if you can afford to have a lawyer, but rather, can you afford not to have one?
