As a victim of negligence, it is almost irrational to think that you should have to pay the hourly fees of a personal injury attorney in addition to the medical expenses and property damages that you have incurred. This is especially true if you have been injured so severely that you are unable to get to work and make the money that you need to cover your usual living expenses. Many personal injury law firms work for injured claimants on a contingency basis, which means that they do not get paid until they have secured a settlement for their clients.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident or suffered a traumatic injury, due to the negligence of another, it may be well worth the effort for you to do a bit of research and see if you might be able to find an attorney, who will work on your case on a contingency basis.

Getting in touch with a few different personal injury law firms that offer contingency fees and free consultations can help you obtain a better perspective of your situation and a deeper understanding of your rights. Do not be afraid to ask questions pertaining to their experience and successes. And do not be afraid to ask what percentage of your settlement they will expect, when and if they win your case.
Personal injury lawsuits can be lengthy and expensive, depending upon the nature of the injuries that have served as the basis of the suits. Medical reports, expert testimonies and investigative services are often required, in order to establish the extent of the damages for which a defendant will be liable. These services are not cheap, and, without the benefit of contingency billing, a great number of personal injury victims would simply not be able to afford such resources. Aggressive and dedicated representation is always necessary, when you are attempting to negotiate with an insurance company, and an attorney, who is working on a contingency basis, is all the more likely to work harder for you, because they know that their paychecks are on the line
Hiring a legal representative on contingency can make a very difficult time much easier. However, it must be noted that simply because an attorney will work on a contingency basis, does not mean that you will not wind up with a bill, if you should ultimately lose your claim for damages. The motto of many attorneys working for contingency fees is, Â“We do not get paid, unless we get money for you,Â” and, technically, this is true. If they do not win your case, you will not have to pay for the man hours that they have invested in your case, but you will receive a bill for the expenses that they have incurred for the expert witnesses, medical reports and investigations made on behalf of your case.
If you have been involved in an accident, or if you have been injured due to the negligence of another, make a few calls and interview a few personal injury attorneys. Do not be afraid to ask questions, and do not be afraid to be choosey.
