WILL I NEED TO PAY A RETAINER IN MY PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?
No, you will not be required to pay any retainer in your personal injury claim.
On your first visit to our office, we will carefully review with you the circumstances surrounding your accident, the steps required to proceed with your claim and all costs so that you have a full understanding of the entire process.
In the course of advancing your claim, we will obtain all relevant medical information confirming your injury, including medical reports, hospital records, treatment records, etc. This can be a costly process; however we will not ask you to pay any of these costs over the course of your claim. When the claim is resolved, we are usually fully reimbursed by the insurance company for most of these amounts.
In addition to the monies we pay out on your behalf, we don’t ask for a retainer or bill you for any of our time until the case is concluded. Lawyers’ fees on personal injury matters are generally paid pursuant to a contingency agreement that will be explained at the outset. When the case is settled and settlement funds received, we will be paid a percentage from the settlement funds. In the event you do not recover compensation for your accident we will not charge a fee for the time spent on your file.
Since 1956 we have come to be recognized as a leader in passionately advocating and achieving outstanding results for all of our clients.
