Contingency Fee Lawyers Serving Maryland
You pay no fees unless we win your case—it’s that simple
The financial impact of a serious accident can be huge. Whether you need compensation for vehicle repairs due to a car accident, medical care due to a serious injury, or replacement income because you can’t work while you’re recovering, the last thing you need is another big bill you have to pay right away.
We get it at Goldberg Finnegan. You have enough to worry about after your accident. Your focus should be on fully recovering from your injury, not worrying about how to pay for your accident-related expenses. That’s why our personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is a payment arrangement between a lawyer and a client in which the attorney only charges if they secure a financial settlement or verdict on behalf of the client. In cases where the lawyer does not win, the client is not required to pay any legal fees. In short, the attorney fees are contingent upon recovering compensation for the client.
This arrangement eliminates concerns about affordability when hiring an attorney to handle your case, as you won't need to pay legal fees unless your attorney successfully obtains a settlement or verdict in your favor. In many cases, contingency fee lawyers, including ours, do not request upfront fees, ensuring that you only pay after your attorney has achieved a favorable financial outcome for you.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
Contingency fees vary from one attorney to another. This is why it’s important to discuss legal fees with your lawyer as soon as possible. That way, there are no surprises after your case is settled or you receive a financial verdict.
Many contingency fee attorneys (including ours) do not charge by the hour like some lawyers. Instead, many simply agree to a flat fee or percentage of whatever money they obtain for you. Again, the best thing you can do is talk to your lawyer to find out their fee arrangement.
Benefits of a contingency fee
There are several reasons why we believe a contingency fee arrangement is right for you:
- You do not have to worry about whether you can afford to hire a top-ranked attorney.
- Your best interests are shared by your lawyer, who wants to win your case just as much as you.
- If you lose your case, you don’t have to pay your lawyer anything.
- If you win your case, your lawyer’s fees come from your financial settlement or verdict. You don’t have to worry about paying anything out-of-pocket for your case.
