Following an auto accident, fall, or other type of accident, many victims face overwhelming medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial struggles as a result of their injuries. While they may want to recover financially from the person responsible for their injuries, they may believe there is no way they could afford to hire an attorney in addition to their existing financial obligations. However, many people do not realize that they may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit on a contingency fee basis, which helps victims who are struggling to pay the bills recover for their injuries. The experienced PI attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith in Coweta County take all of their personal injury cases on a contingency basis to better help you receive the compensation you deserve.
A contingency fee means that the cost to you depends on the outcome of your case. In short, you only pay us for our services if you win your case and receive compensation. This means that you pay absolutely nothing out of pocket up front to consult with or hire an attorney. You still pay nothing for your personal injury lawyer to file a lawsuit on your behalf, engage in pretrial actions, or even go to trial. In fact, if you would happen to lose your case at trial, you would never have to pay anything at all.
If you do receive a settlement or award in your case, your attorney will then get a certain agreed-upon percentage of the amount you receive. Therefore, your PI lawyer also has a greater incentive to work as hard as possible to help you win your personal injury case.
