How Contingency Agreements Work
You may need a lawyer who works on contingency when you do not have the means to pursue legal action on your own. There may be many unexpected expenses related to your personal injury lawsuit or civil claim. Some of the most common expenses that need to be covered include:
- Court filing fees
- Costs of hiring accident reconstructionists
- Expenses relating to forensic data analysis
- Costs of police and crash reports
- Expenses related to hiring expert witnesses to testify on your behalf
Contingency agreements make it possible for anyone struggling financially to get the legal help they need when they need it most. When you work with a lawyer on contingency, not only do you not have to cover any of the expenses that may arise in pursuing your case, but you will not be expected to pay any of your attorney’s fees unless or until your personal injury attorney wins your case. If we do not win, you do not have to pay anything for our services.

Who Can Obtain a Contingency Agreement?
Working with a lawyer who only gets paid when you win is critical when you are dealing with any type of civil matter. Many individuals dealing with lawsuits are unable to earn a living. Your injuries or specific details of your case may prevent you from working while you heal or resolve your legal dispute.
Fortunately, nearly anyone can get help from a contingency attorney. Most often, we represent individuals dealing with personal injuries. However, if you were harassed, wrongfully terminated, or are struggling to cope with any other type of employment law, workers’ compensation, or labor law violations, we may be able to help.
Once your personal injury attorney starts working on your case, we handle every legal detail. We will not only investigate the incident in depth to collect valuable supporting evidence, but we will also go over your damages to ensure we are accurately calculating the value of your claim. With John Foy & Associates advocating for you, you will not have to risk your own money to demand justice for your suffering.
We Work on Contingency for Many Types of Accidents
There are countless benefits to working with a lawyer on contingency. You may have concerns that your injuries are not severe enough to warrant a lawsuit or insurance claim against those responsible. However, the best way to find out is by discussing the circumstances of your case with an experienced legal professional.
Your contingency attorney will evaluate your injuries, the accident you were involved in, and other pertinent information to determine how to recover maximum compensation for your damages. If you are unsure whether you have grounds for a claim, consider whether someone else is responsible for your legal situation. Some of the most common types of civil matters our contingency attorneys handle include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slips and falls
- Dog bites
- Workers’ compensation
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can involve pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, commercial trucks, buses, and many other types of motorized vehicles. In many cases, negligent drivers are found liable. However, other parties could also be sued including:
- Auto parts designers and manufacturers
- City officials and municipalities
- The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT)
- Vehicle maintenance workers
- Safety inspectors
- Motor vehicle dealerships
Slips and Falls
Slip and fall accidents most frequently happen on dangerous properties. Property owners who fail to properly maintain the premises can be held accountable for the victim’s damages. Some of the most common causes of slips and falls include:
- Wet floors
- Debris and walkways
- Broken stairs or escalators
- Snow and ice
- Unsecured carpeting
Georgia follows strict liability laws for dog bites under Georgia Code Title 51. Torts §51-2-7. Dog owners will always be held accountable when they do not maintain control of their animal and it subsequently attacks or bites. You may be able to file a claim against the dog owner’s homeowners, renters, or general liability insurance coverage to recover the compensation you deserve.
Our contingency attorneys also work with individuals who have suffered on-the-job injuries. You may have the right to workers’ compensation benefits, including coverage of your medical bills, wage replacement benefits, and potentially vocational rehabilitation benefits. Our team can help get your worker’s comp application approved by the insurance company and hold them accountable if they handle your claim in bad faith.
