Anderson & Cummings does not charge fees before taking your case or while pursuing compensation. The initial consultation where we review your claim is 100 percent free and we only bill you if we recover compensation on your behalf.
We cover the legal fees associated with your claim while working on it and bill you for a percentage of your compensation award to pay our costs. The exact percentage will be presented to you before we start work on your case and it may vary, depending on the details of your case.
Why do Law Firms Work with No Payments Up Front?
Our licensed attorneys understand that many individuals and families do not have the financial means to pay for a lawyer in advance. By charging no fees up front, we help to even the odds against at-fault parties and insurance companies that have a lot of money to spend. This gives injury victims with a valid case the chance to pursue maximum compensation, no matter their financial situation.
What is Covered in an Initial Consultation?
The law offices of Anderson & Cummings can discuss your situation in a Free Case Evaluation and determine whether your claim may qualify for compensation. You can also learn more about our fees and ask us any questions you may have about what to expect. If we take your case and you hire our firm, we will explain the fees for taking on your case before we get to work.
What is the Process When the Case is Completed?
Once a settlement is agreed upon or the jury reaches a verdict in your favor, you will be issued a closing statement, which includes the total amount of financial compensation awarded to you along with the fees for representing you.
The closing statement will also include outstanding medical bills and other debts you may owe to your health insurance provider, which we can help resolve.
Other Fee Arrangements Law Firms Use
Lawyers can take personal injury cases on contingency, but lawyers are prohibited from doing this with many other cases. In these situations, lawyers charge clients up front – this is known as a retainer fee and it is often a significant amount of money. The more complex the case, the higher the retainer fee. There is also an hourly fee charged whenever the attorney works on your case. As you can imagine, hourly fees add up quickly.
Charging upfront fees often prevents people from using the legal process to deal with a grievance or other issue.
