A Contingency Fee Ensures Every Injured Person Can Afford a Lawyer

There has been a lot of media coverage lately about the multi-million dollar verdicts awarded to plaintiffs in liability lawsuits. For example, Johnson & Johnson, a company known in every household as a maker of consumer health and skin care products, was found guilty of negligence, conspiracy and fraud in relation to their talcum powder products.

What if you had to come up against that industry giant in court? Alone. Paying for the legal proceedings out of your pocket. Hard to imagine, isn’t it?

The right to a civil jury trial when you have been hurt due to the wrongdoing of another is a fundamental right of every American. Sick and injured people seeking compensation need the help of an attorney. A contingency fee arrangement makes it possible for them to have one.

Contingency-based fees ensure that every accident and injury victim has access to skilled, reputable and compassionate legal representation.

Your attorney is your partner, fighting for the best possible outcome of your case.Under a contingency fee arrangement, the attorney agrees to take a case without being paid any cash up front. The attorney fronts all the costs and gets paid only when money is recovered for the plaintiff. With mounting medical bills, disability and suffering pain, often leading to the inability to work, most clients would never be able to afford an attorney’s fees.

The contingency fee ensures that every injured person can afford a lawyer. This is why the contingency fee arrangement is so important to our legal system.

Your attorney is your partner, fighting for the best possible outcome of your case. For both of you.
