Many accident victims wonder what happens if they file a personal injury claim and lose. They don’t want to invest their time and money only to fail. They worry about the expense of hiring a lawyer and the legal fees associated. Often, in the wake of the losses these victims have already endured as a result of the accident, they become afraid that any additional cost could push their families over the edge.
Depending on the people you choose to protect your rights, losing a personal injury case could indeed cause financial hardship. Here are two ways to protect yourself and make sure that your family has nothing to lose should your case be unsuccessful.
Working on Contingency
A major concern of clients is that a failed personal injury case could wind up costing them big-time. If you recover the full amount of compensation you deserve, then paying any necessary legal fees won’t decrease your ability to get medical care and support your family. If you win nothing, though, the prospect of having to pay court fees and lawyers’ fees is intimidating.
That’s why it’s important to choose a New Jersey personal injury attorney that works on a contingency basis. This means you only pay your lawyer if you win your case. When a law office operates on a contingency basis, the clients benefit. You don’t have to worry about being misled into filing a claim that you are unlikely to win, because the office gains nothing unless you recover compensation. You know that your attorney is always working hard to get you the largest amount of money damages possible, because both of us benefit from a maximum settlement or verdict. Most importantly, your finances don’t limit your ability to get the quality legal representation you need. In our office, we make working on a contingency basis part of our No Fee Promise, which includes free consultations and cost-saving negotiations with medical care providers. It’s all part of decreasing your expenses so your family gets to keep more of the money you win.
One way to worry less about losing your claim is to choose an attorney with a proven record of success. If you’re considering a law office where staff members are reluctant to give you information about the number of clients helped, the amount of compensation recovered, or the number of years spent practicing personal injury law, you may want to reconsider. A lawyer with the kind of skills you need and the reputation you want should be open and honest with you throughout the process, and should be more than happy to tell you about the firm’s experiences. In our office, for example, we’re proud to have had the honor of representing more than 5,000 clients over 20 years, winning them tens of millions of dollars in compensation.
