Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

June 11, 2021

Most people think that hiring an attorney requires spending thousands of dollars in hourly legal fees. While some areas of law require a higher up-front cost, most personal injury lawyers do not ask for compensation until they win your case.

At Saladino & Schaaf, we work on a contingency fee basis. This ensures that you get top-quality legal representation without breaking the bank. Many of our clients are already dealing with many medical costs and other fees resulting from their accident. Therefore, working on contingency makes the most sense for our case model.

What Are Contingency Fees?

To bring a personal injury claim against a defendant, the injured person must usually be able to prove that the other individual has committed “negligence.” Proving negligence is the underlying principle behind all personal injury claims and determines whether you have a case.

Proving negligence is a complicated matter, so personal injury lawyers have a vested interest in taking only cases they believe can be handled successfully. This is why many injury attorneys, including Saladino & Schaaf, offer a free case evaluation before taking a new case.

Contingency fees usually only kick in if the attorney wins your injury lawsuit, whether through a settlement or a jury verdict in civil court. Therefore, your attorney must be fully confident that their work will result in a positive result and for a just cause.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Most personal injury lawyers want to help their injured clients fight back against negligence. At Saladino & Schaaf, we believe in justice, and are ready to fight hard for our clients. We can represent you in a broad spectrum of personal injury cases, ranging from workplace injuries to car accident claims.
