Contingency Fee Lawyers in the Bronx, NY
Pay no legal fees unless we recover money for you
It can’t be overstated how many things can go wrong when you’ve been injured in an accident and need to get compensated for your damages. While you might think the process of recovering your losses is straightforward, it’s easy to lose faith in the system once you start to see how unnecessarily complicated insurance adjusters and insurance companies make it out to be.
Many times, hiring a personal injury lawyer is the most effective way to pursue the compensation you deserve. Yet many don’t even try to seek legal help from an attorney for the sole reason that they think they can’t afford one. At Giampa Law, you don’t have to worry about that. When you’ve been injured, we don’t think you should have to pay through the nose to get the legal help that you need. That’s why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis.
How does a contingency fee work?
A contingency fee is a form of payment your lawyer receives if he or she obtains a financial settlement or court judgment on your behalf. If you don’t win, you pay no legal fees for the attorney’s time and labor. If you do win, your lawyer receives a pre-determined percentage of the financial award. Indeed, your attorney’s fee is contingent upon the ultimate result of your case.
Contingency fee agreements can be structured differently depending on the law firm and the circumstances of your case. For instance, fees may be on a sliding scale depending on whether a lawsuit was filed on your behalf or if your attorney prepared to take your case to trial. Generally speaking, the industry standard for contingency fees is around one-third of the settlement or judgment, excluding costs.
Do contingency fee agreements cover expenses?
The costs associated with advancing your claim are typically not included in a contingency fee agreement. These expenses may include:
- Applicable court costs
- Filing fees
- Copying charges
- Deposition costs
- Fees to consult with expert witnesses and specialists
- Costs to serve summons and subpoenas
What are the benefits of a contingency fee agreement?
Hiring a lawyer on a contingency fee basis is appealing to many primarily because there is very little risk involved for the client and potentially much to gain. Among the many advantages of a contingency fee arrangement are:
- Your capacity to pay for an attorney won’t keep you from gaining access to the court system, meaning your case will be decided on its merit.
- You won’t get billed by the hour for your lawyer’s time and labor.
- You and your attorney are on the same page and want to achieve the same goals – if they lose, you lose. Consequently, you can take comfort knowing that your lawyer is incentivized to fight for every dollar that you’re entitled to.
- If your case is won, your attorney’s legal fees are deducted from any settlement or judgment you’re awarded instead of being an out-of-pocket expense to you.
