Contingency Fee Attorney in McAllen
Can you afford to hire a McAllen personal injury attorney?
If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a serious accident, hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury or wrongful death claim may be the last thing you can think of doing. After all, legal representation is notoriously expensive, and to make matters worse, you may be facing considerable economic hardship as a result of your tragedy. You may have been rendered temporary or permanently disabled as a result of your injury, or perhaps your family has been deprived of its livelihood by the death of a loved one. Furthermore, the costs of medical treatment for a serious accident can be absolutely staggering; in fact, suffering a major illness or injury is commonly listed as being the leading reason that Americans file for bankruptcy.
Fortunately, you can almost certainly afford to hire a McAllen personal injury attorney from Guerra & Farah, PLLC because our attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis, an arrangement which is also commonly referred to as "no win, no fee." A contingency-fee attorney will accept a client's case without charging a retainer or any other fee up front, so the client does not have to pay any money out of pocket. The firm covers all of the expenses of investigating the case, hiring expert testimony and other costs, and does not receive any payment unless successful in recovering an insurance settlement or a jury verdict for the client. If they do win the case, the attorneys are paid a percentage of the compensation which they recover for the client.
Won't hiring an attorney mean I receive less compensation?
The fact that personal injury attorneys usually work on contingency sometimes dissuades people from hiring their services because they will have to give up some of the money they recover in their accident claim. In fact, insurance company representatives will often use this fact to try to convince claimants that they should forego legal representation and should instead settle the claim on their own. While it is true that contingency fees mean that you will have to give up a percentage of the payment you receive, it is all but certain that you will still end up receiving far more than you otherwise would without representation.
Maximize the Value of Your Personal Injury Claim
Insurance companies nearly always offer considerably less than a claimant deserves, and hiring a personal injury lawyer typically means that the client will receive several times the value of compensation that was initially offered. Since our payment depends on success in your case, we will approach the situation fully motivated to use all of our resources, skills and dedication to win your case and to recover the largest possible settlement or verdict possible.
