The Critical Things to Know About Hiring A Contingency Lawyer

When would you need an Edmonton Contingency Lawyer? Imagine that you have been injured in an accident, as a result of this accident you now experience physical limitations. These limitations inhibit your ability to perform your work-based obligations. You now have to take an extended leave of absence and in the meantime are not being paid for the time you are not working. This sort of situation can be terrifying, and people often do not know where to turn.

One of the biggest concerns parties who are injured in accidents express to us when considering legal action is their ability to pay for legal services. When you are injured in an accident you may find yourself now struggling to do things that you were once able to do. In serious cases, you may even find your ability to work has been compromised. Faced with bills and other financial obligations, if legal action has crossed your mind you may find yourself wondering how you are supposed to pay for someone to defend your interests.

Edmonton Contingency Lawyers – Why do we work on a contingency model?

The answer is the Edmonton contingency lawyers at James H. Brown & Associates. Our payment structure works on a contingency model, meaning that our team does not receive payment until the conclusion of your case when you receive your settlement. We find that this approach to personal injury cases makes the pursuit of your legal right to compensation a more realistic possibility for many clients. A contingency fee structure allows clients who may not have extra funds to spend on legal fees to pursue their rights while not worrying about how expensive legal bills will affect their ability to make ends meet. With our contingency model, clients are more able to focus on their immediate financial obligations, securing their necessities of life, and ensuring that they receive proper treatment while we worry about fighting for you.

Does the fee structure change based on the duration of your case?

You may find yourself wondering if because you have a more complex case that may take longer to resolve if the model changes at all. Regardless of the length of time, it takes you to get to a settlement, your case will continue on a contingency fee basis. This means that the complexity of your case should not deter you from considering legal action and pursuing the compensation that you deserve. Our firm is filled with experienced lawyers who have decades of experience in the industry and are eager to help you.

When is the fee agreement discussed?

We discuss our fee agreement at the initial consultation with our clients which is absolutely free and there is no commitment.

Will my contingency lawyer work as hard as a lawyer who works on an hourly basis?

Your contingency lawyer has a vested interest in resolving your case for the highest amount possible. Our contingency fee structure results in a percentage of the final settlement being paid to our law firm, this means that the higher the settlement the more profit that our firm receives. As such you can expect your lawyer to work very hard to get you the best result possible.

What if we do not win the case?

We guarantee that if we do not recover you any compensation for your injuries then you owe us absolutely nothing.
