You Need a Lawyer Who Works on Contingency After a Car Accident
After being involved in a car crash, it should be a top priority to get an attorney working on your case. While you heal from your injuries, your lawyer can start building a powerful case against the at-fault party. Fortunately, you do not need to put down a retainer when you work with a lawyer on contingency.
Contingency attorneys do not need a down payment. We do not work on an hourly basis, and we do not use your money to build your case. Instead, we utilize our resources to cover any expenses that come up along the way.
Then, when we are successful in negotiating with the insurance company or presenting your case before a judge and jury, we will recoup our expenses and our attorney fees through your settlement. At no point are your personal finances at risk. This makes it possible for you to get a powerful legal professional on your side when you do not have the funds, knowledge, or resources to handle your case on your own.

What Happens if You Do Not Win Your Car Accident Case
One of the top benefits of having a contingency attorney handle your car accident claim is the minimal risk. If we do not win you a settlement with the insurance company or an award at trial, you will not pay anything. You will not need to pay us back for the costs of pursuing your case either.
If we do not win or produce a financial recovery, we do not get paid. Unlike other types of legal matters, such as criminal defense, divorce or child support, or even estate planning, if you wind up in litigation and lose, you will still need to pay your lawyer’s hourly rate or fees. Contingency agreements are different.
Payment for our services is contingent upon us winning your case. Your own money should never be on the line. At John Foy & Associates, we believe you should not have to risk your future to demand justice.
Expenses Associated with Filing a Car Accident Claim
Many car accident victims simply do not know how the state’s personal injury and car accident laws work. You may not understand the intricacies surrounding car accident claims. Furthermore, your injuries may prevent you from being able to do much of anything other than heal.
Your contingency attorney will not only help you understand your rights, but we can handle every legal detail of your case on your behalf. This way, you can spend more time with your family and recuperating. Several types of lawyers require a retainer so they can cover the costs associated with moving forward with a claim.
When you have a contingency lawyer, we cover these expenses. If there are court filing fees, we take care of them. We are also prepared to pay for expert witnesses, data analysis, copies of important legal documents, and any other expenses that could arise along the way.
Your Car Accident Lawsuit May Be Worth More than You Think
Your car accident lawsuit is likely worth more than you think. Although the thought of paying your attorney out of your settlement may feel worrisome, our team understands the true value of car accident damages and will ensure you are compensated fairly for your losses and suffering. Some of the most common types of economic and non-economic damages that may be recoverable in car accident claims include:
- Auto repair expenses
- The diminished value of your vehicle
- Lost wages
- Current and future medical bills
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of employer-provided benefits
- Physical pain and suffering
- Rental car costs
- Your deductible
- Emotional distress and mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Increases to your auto insurance premiums
- Skin scarring and disfigurement
Typically, contingency agreements stipulate that approximately 20%-40% of your payout will cover your attorney’s fees. However, the exact amount that will cover your lawyer’s expenses will vary depending on how much of our time, energy, resources, and efforts need to go into your case. You can learn more about how much will be deducted from your settlement when you discuss your contingency agreement in-depth with your personal injury lawyer.

Working with a lawyer on contingency may be the best way to recover the compensation you are owed without risking what little money you have left after your collision. Most car accident victims will be awarded compensation for their damages when another party’s negligence is the cause of their injuries. This makes it possible for our team to take on your case without requiring a retainer for our services.
If we win, a portion of your settlement covers your attorney’s fees. If we lose, you do not pay anything, and we do not get paid. If we take on your case, you can feel confident that you will be able to get the justice you deserve.
