How Does a Contingency Fee Arrangement Work?

When you are hurt in an accident — whether you slipped on wet leaves or got into a car accident — you are likely in pain and worried about how you will make ends meet when you can’t work due to an extended recovery period. You feel your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence and you want to be compensated for your injuries. However, the last thing you can possible afford right now is an attorney to fight for damages on your behalf.

The answer to your prayers is what’s known as a contingency fee agreement. When you choose to work with an experienced law firm, you can usually set up a payment arrangement that allows you to pay your lawyer from the proceeds won (or settled) from the case. If no damages are collected on your behalf, you don’t owe your attorney anything. Further, there are usually no upfront legal fees, as well. This means that your lawyer takes on the risk and you benefit all around.

You might be wondering why a lawyer would be willing to take a chance on a contingency fee arrangement. Generally speaking, a law firm with considerable experience and a record of success will base its decision to take your case on the likelihood of a successful outcome. Simply put, the lawyer who agrees to make a contingency fee agreement does so because he feels your case has substantial merit.

At Begelman & Orlow, we meet with personal injury clients for free and during the initial consultation we will be able to determine the merits of the case. If we take on your case, rest assured, we will work tirelessly on your behalf. We don’t get paid unless we collect damages for you. Rest assured, we will put the full force of our experience to work for you and your family.

Contact us today for a free consultation about your case. Remember, there is no risk to you and no out of pocket fees. You have nothing to lose and both compensation and justice to gain.
