“No Fee Unless We Win” Explained
Dealing with insurance adjusters and related agents can be very stressful after a work injury or a car accident. Many individuals lack prior experience or expertise in these matters, which makes it even more challenging. Additionally, some injured workers and accident victims believe they cannot seek help because they cannot afford lawyer fees.
Attorney T. Andrew Miller understands how alarming this realization can be and is here to help. That is why he only accepts cases on a contingency fee basis, or “No Fee Unless We Win.” But, what does this mean?
What Is A Contingent Fee?
A contingent fee, also known as a “contingency fee,” is the fee the attorney earns when the case is concluded. Workers’ compensation and auto accident cases very often conclude with a lump sum cash settlement paid to the client. When that happens, the attorney’s fee is calculated on a percentage and paid to the attorney. Fees are only owed to the lawyer when a cash settlement is received.
However, with some law firms, the attorney’s fee may not be all you are responsible for. Most contingent fee agreements include terms that allow attorneys to pay for case expenses upfront. The settlement deducts these expenses along with the attorney’s fee. Some law firms will charge the client for these expenses even if no cash settlement is obtained for the client. The Law Offices of T. Andrew Miller do not practice law this way, no matter the outcome. If the client does not receive a cash settlement at the conclusion of his or her injury claim, then the client owes nothing.
