ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN ATTORNEY FEES THAT I NEED TO BE AWARE OF? When you sign your contingency fee agreement with our personal injury law firm the details of our fee structure are explained in detail so there will be no hidden fee charges. There are no "we got you" or "you should have known fees". All the fees and expenses are explained in paragraph 1 and 2 of our contingency fee agreement and you will initial next to each to make sure you have read them. We want our clients to trust their attorneys to provide them with the peace of mind and reduce their headaches. Our goal is not to make money from your pocket but be able to obtain the best results possible for your injuries and damages.
ARE MY MEDICAL BILLS AND ATTORNEY FEES COMBINED? Your medical bills are separate from your attorney fees. Although your attorney fees are based on the “No Fee, No Recovery” concept your medical bills are your responsibility. If you went to the emergency room after your accident and they issued you a bill; the bill is your responsibility and we cannot waive it because it is not our bill to waive. However, when you sign a contract with a Personal Injury attorney, you give us the permission to pay the medical providers back from the settlement or judgment that you receive at the end.
WHO PAYS FOR THE EXPENSE OF HANDLING MY CASE? Good news is that under a contingency contract the attorney can choose to pay for your case expenses as well. Our contract allows us to pay for the expenses involved with your case and once we recover a settlement, we will refund those expenses back to us from the settlement. What are the usual expenses involved with a personal injury case? Personal Injury cases are expensive in nature.
The expenses are the money that the attorney gives to other facilities, entities, or governments to obtain the information needed on properly handling your case. For example, the police department charges a fee to produce a copy of the police report, video of the collision, and the police call log. The medical providers charge per page to produce your medical records. The court charges a fee to file a lawsuit. There are additional expenses included but not limited to deposition fees, investigation fees, mediation fees, and etc.
The best part about hiring our firm is that we process most of these requests digitally saving you money at every corner. For an instant, we request most of your medical records and bills in a digital format and pay a flat fee instead of per page charge. We make most communications through email and client portals to provide you quick access at a much cheaper rate. This makes us a faster and a more affordable law firm of your choice.

* “No Attorney Fee if No Recovery” means that you will not be responsible for your attorney fees if we lose your case or do not settle your case with the responsible party or their insurance company. We will charge you a percentage of the settlement instead of the typical retainer and hourly fees that attorneys charge. Therefore, if we lose your case any percentage X $0.00 = $0.00 and you owe us nothing for attorney fees. This allows you as a victim of a car accident to receive the proper medical attention that you need without worrying about the outrageous legal fees piling up. In addition, this will give you the opportunity to handle your property damage much faster and get back to your daily lives.
