What if you can’t afford a lawyer for a personal injury case?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, trying to handle a personal injury case on your own can be daunting. You might ask yourself:
- Do I need to hire a lawyer?
- How much will it cost?
- Can I afford it?
These are important questions, and understanding the answers can help you make informed decisions about proceeding with your injury case. Let me provide you with the information you need to know.
How an accident lawyer gets paid
If you are worried that you won’t be able to afford a personal injury lawyer to handle your case, it is vital to understand that personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. That means they make money at the end of the case, and they make money by getting a percentage of what they recover for you. So if you’ve been injured in an accident and need an injury lawyer’s help, do not worry about whether you can afford the lawyer. The contingency basis arrangement ensures everyone can afford a personal injury lawyer when needed.
If you talk to an injury lawyer and they start charging you from the outset for things, you should walk out and get another lawyer. All reputable injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency basis. You don’t pay anything upfront. If and when they recover funds for you, they will take a percentage of that amount. The lawyer is taking the financial risk to help you, which is why they are careful to get all the exact details of your case when deciding whether they believe they can prove that you were not at fault for the accident and to the nature and extent of your injuries.
