A contingency fee is an arrangement between the victim of an accident or injury and the law firm representing them where the firm is paid a percentage of the recovery, and ONLY if they win. Our team of personal injury attorneys will seek to recover compensation for medical bills, physical pain, mental anguish, lost income, disfigurement, disability and other damages suffered by our clients. Simply stated, in a contingency fee arrangement, there is no legal fee (i.e., we will not be paid for our time and work) unless there is a recovery, whether by settlement, jury verdict, or court award.
We recognize that the average person cannot afford to pay a lawyer hundreds of dollars per hour in order to pursue a claim. For that reason, our firm represents almost all of our clients on a “contingency fee” basis. Under this contingency fee arrangement, you pay nothing up front and pay no fee unless we win. As reflected by his many client testimonials, Attorney Guss and his attorneys and staff base their practice on the principles of fairness and compassionate expertise.
If there is no recovery on your case, then you do not owe our firm for our time or out of pocket expenses. If, and only if, there is a recovery on your case, then you pay a percentage of your recovery as a fee to compensate our firm and repay our case expenses. The bottom line is that Attorney Guss and his team will ONLY be paid if and when you make a recovery.
Contingency fee agreements with our firm must be in writing. The specific terms and conditions of your contingency fee agreement will be discussed when you speak with us. If you would like to discuss a potential contingency fee case, please CONTACT US right now for a free consultation.
