Understanding Our Contingency Fee Agreement
At Hotchkin Law, we want to ensure that you have full access to the legal resources you need.
Financial circumstances can make it difficult to obtain legal help because of the finances that are already being strained by medical expenses as a result of the accident. If you are like most people injured in an accident, you are faced with large medical bills for treatment of your injuries and must typically find a way to make ends meet during the time in which you are out of work. For that reason, we work on a contingency fee basis.
Contingency fees allow you, as a personal injury plaintiff, the chance to obtain a settlement prior to paying for attorney fees. If monetary recovery cannot be achieved, the you will not owe our firm anything. In addition, we do not charge to handle property damage claims.
We call this our Zero Down – No Win/No Fee guarantee. It costs you nothing to start your case, and if you don’t win your case, you don’t need to pay us anything.
Benefits of Working on a Contingency Fee Basis
There are several benefits to working on a contingency fee basis, including that you can have confidence knowing that we are fully motivated to obtain the best possible result for your case. If we are able to recover compensation on your behalf, we will take a percent for our services. If no recovery is obtained, we do not get paid.
