FAQ: Can I Afford to Hire a Lawyer?
Following any kind of act of negligence and the ensuing injury, many people fail to take legal action simply because they feel they can’t afford professional representation. Unfortunately, this often means that the responsible party gets away without having to pay for their actions.
They are not quite sure that they can pay for the court fees, the attorney fees, and more, all while paying for the medical bills they’re experiencing as a result of their injury. However, this is a common misconception and retaining a lawyer is not nearly as expensive as people think.
One thing that people don’t always realize is that many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the initial consultation with your attorney and the fees to file and go through the entire process are paid by your legal team.
You don’t take on any risks by retaining legal representation. Even better, you don’t have to pay if you don’t win the case. When you do retain compensation, the amount the attorney earns comes as a previously agreed upon percentage of the settlement or verdict.
Can You Afford Not to Hire a Lawyer?
Because many people don’t feel they can afford to hire a lawyer, they try to navigate the process alone. They file a claim, and if it’s denied, they don’t know what comes next. Unfortunately, this puts your rights in jeopardy of being taken advantage of.
Without having a lawyer, you can miss deadlines, file incomplete or incorrect paper work, and even say things that will allow the defendant to successfully deny your claim or file a motion to dismiss your lawsuit. As such, you may walk away with nothing in your case.
