Far too many injury victims are hesitant to get the legal help they need after an accident or catastrophic injury. This is often because they do not believe they can afford the costs associated with pursuing their case. If this sounds like what you have experienced, you are not alone.
You have the right to be repaid for your losses in full when someone else is responsible for causing your injuries and the accident in question. When you have a lawyer who works on contingency, you do not need to worry about any of the costs or expenses that may arise as you demand the compensation you are owed. Contingency agreements make it possible for nearly anyone to get legal support.
An experienced Georgia personal injury attorney at John Foy & Associates could be the answer you have been looking for. A dedicated Atlanta contingency lawyer at our firm may be able to help you fight for justice. Here is more about how contingency agreements work and what you can expect from your attorney’s fees once we take on your case.
Types of Cases Contingency Attorneys Handle
Personal injury and contingency lawyers typically work for their clients without requiring a retainer. They do not get paid unless they win. For this reason, they typically only work with clients that are being awarded compensation, including some of the following types of cases:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Wrongful death
- Construction accidents
- Work injuries
- Birth injuries
- Nursing home abuse
- Dog bites
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Worker’s compensation claims
If you were involved in any other type of accident that resulted in catastrophic injuries, working with a personal injury attorney at John Foy & Associates could be the solution you have been looking for. We work for our clients on contingency agreements, so you do not need to put yourself or your finances at risk by demanding the compensation you deserve. We can advocate for your rights with the insurance company and at trial to get the most out of your claim.
Certain Kinds of Lawyers Cannot Work on Contingency
Unfortunately, unless a claimant is expected to be awarded compensation, it is unlikely the lawyer will be able to work with them on contingency. This is because your contingency attorney will need to utilize their own resources to build a case and anticipate being paid back when they win. Some of the types of legal professionals that usually do not work on a contingency basis include:
- Family law attorneys
- Child support lawyers
- Domestic violence attorneys
- Estate planning lawyers
- Divorce attorneys
- Business lawyers
- Criminal defense attorneys
Intellectual property lawyers, employment law attorneys, whistleblower law firms, and any other type of civil lawyer may work on an hourly basis, require a retainer, or work on contingency. It is important to discuss your payment arrangement with prospective attorneys before you sign any type of legal document. Otherwise, you could be stuck with an excess of attorney’s fees even if your case is not successful.
Get the strong arm
When You Call in The Strong Arm, You Can Afford an Attorney
At John Foy & Associates, we understand that injury victims and accident survivors have been through traumatic and life-altering experiences. Many injury victims hesitate to call a lawyer for help because they do not believe they can afford the costs. It is our goal to help accident victims get through these trying times by recovering the compensation they are entitled to.
You will never have to worry about affording a legal representative when you call in the strong arm. We work for most of our clients on contingency. This makes it possible for you to hire a lawyer without having to tap into your savings, take out a loan against your 401(k), or request a line of credit through a home equity loan.
How Contingency Agreements Work
When you work with an attorney on contingency, we cover all of the expenses that come up as we pursue your case. We will never request a down payment or retainer for our services because we utilize the law firm’s resources to pay for any and all of the costs that arise in the process. Some of these expenses could include:
- Costs of hiring expert witnesses
- Expenses associated with analyzing forensic data
- Court filing fees
- Costs of obtaining valuable documents, such as crash reports, medical records, and reports compiled by accident reconstructionists
These are just a few of the costs that may come up as we build a case against the liable party. The good news is that when you work on a contingency agreement, these expenses are not your own. We take care of them in full because we understand that you should not have to jeopardize yourself further in your pursuit of justice.
How No Win No Fee Lawyers Get Paid
Arguably, the biggest advantage of hiring an attorney on a contingency agreement is that your lawyer only gets paid if they win. If we do not win your case or recover compensation for your damages, you will not be expected to pay for our efforts. We will not be able to recoup the costs we covered in building your case if we are not successful.
If we win, a percentage of your award will cover our attorney’s fees and expenses. The exact percentage will vary widely on a case-by-case basis. You can learn more about the details of your contingency agreement when you connect with our law offices to discuss your legal options in greater detail.
