Suffering injuries from a PA or NJ car accident can leave you with many worries: your health and mobility, medical bills, lost time at work, vehicle damage, among other things. Bucks County personal injury lawyer Michael L. Saile, Jr. believes you should not have to worry about any aspect of the handling of your injury case, including how you are being charged for his representation.
In our new article we lay out three different ways an injury lawyer might set up the fee structure for your case:
- Fixed rate
- Hourly rate
- Contingent fee
We discuss in greatest depth the benefits of a having your lawyer charge you for his or her representation on a contingent fee basis. This means that your lawyer gets paid only if and when a financial settlement is reached or jury award is obtained. The article also points out the difference between legal fees and case costs, both of which are due to the lawyer/law firm at the conclusion of your case.
One very important advantage you have as a personal injury client of the Law Firm of Saile & Saile LLP is our Client First Fee Agreement. This generous fee agreement allows for a discount of your legal fee if your case settles early. If your case settles earlier than an injury case customarily takes to settle, we feel the lawyer should be paid only for that time it took to settle your matter, and no more. Our clients’ satisfaction, physical recovery, and ultimate compensation for damages is our goal. Contact us for more information on filing an accident injury claim or to discuss your case.
