Why Do Injured People Fear that they Cannot Afford a Lawyer?
After a serious injury caused by the recklessness or negligence of another person, many people feel a loss of control over their life. They may be forced to stop working and stop participating in the activities they love. They may come under significant financial stress due to missed work and medical bills. They may come to think that they need to stretch every penny to make ends meet and that they aren’t in a position to even consider hiring a lawyer.
In some cases, these fears are justified because many law firms do charge very high hourly rates, or even ask for big retainers up-front. However, lack of access to knowledgeable and experienced attorneys is often a reason why companies are able to get away with selling defective products or putting poorly maintained trucks on our highways and roads.
But, the lawyers of The Reiff Law Firm want to make sure that people who need our services will be able to afford them. So, we provide our services under a “contingency fee” agreement. The contingency fee arrangement allows you to work with attorneys who have decades of legal experience and take the first step towards taking back control of your life.
What Our Contingency Fee Arrangement Means
Our agreement with clients is called “contingency fee plus court costs and expenses”. This means that you do not pay us any fee or retainer up-front. For individuals who have suffered a serious injury and are dealing with the medical bills from potentially life-altering injuries, this is good news.
How the contingency fee plus costs and expenses agreement works is we keep a percentage of any award we gain for you, plus what we invested in your case. You pay us nothing up front. We are paid only when we get an award for you. In the very rare case when we are unable to find a solution, you don’t pay us back for any of it. Not even the expenses.
This means that pursuing legal action does not represent any additional risk to you. Furthermore, it means that you can hire a legal team with decades of experience to represent you for your severe injury case. We are motivated to achieve a favorable result for you because we only receive compensation and reimbursement for expenses if we secure a settlement or jury award for you.
Why is Contingency a Good Idea?
One of the most pressing problems in our legal system is the unequal access many have to the courts and representation. That is, absent a contingency fee arrangement individuals who are seriously injured by a large company or corporation may lack the resources to hire a lawyer while the company can utilize its collective resources to hire an army of lawyers to fight potential claims. Contingency arrangements are one means of expanding the availability of legal services to those who otherwise would not be able to hire a lawyer. Essentially, it means that anyone with an important legal claim can afford our firm. This means that big corporations and rich insurance companies can’t bully regular people in the courts. If you’ve been severely injured, you need a strong and experienced advocate in your corner from the start. With the lawyers of The Reiff Law Firm, you have one.
Contingency fees also have a few more positive effect on your ability to secure representation. Contingency also means that we’re in the case together with you. Since we are only paid if we win, we work very hard to achieve a favorable result for you. And since we receive a percentage of the award, we’re motivated to seek highest possible compensation for your case.
Finally, it means that our law firm—not you, the injured individual—takes the financial risks. If we don’t win, you still don’t pay us for anything — even your court costs.
