How Much Will a Truck Accident Lawyer Cost Me?
After getting hurt in a truck accident, many injury victims wonder if they can afford a truck accident lawyer. They’re surprised to discover the truth: a truck accident attorney is very affordable.
While legal services can be quite expensive, most Atlanta injury lawyers like Andrew E. Goldner operate on a contingency basis. A contingency agreement means that your attorney’s payment is contingent on you recovering money from your case.
At the Law Offices of Andrew E. Goldner, LLC we never require any upfront payment from you. If we don’t win your case, you don’t pay–it’s that simple. We are more than happy to take the risk because our team accepts only personal injury cases that we truly believe in.
Our contingency arrangements mean that anyone can obtain representation after their car or truck accident. We fight for the rights of all clients and only take cases that we feel can be won. This allows us to serve a diverse range of people with one thing in common – they’ve been hurt in a car or truck accident, and they need help as soon as possible.
How Does a Contingency Arrangement Work?
To begin, your consultation at the Law Offices of Andrew E. Goldner, LLC is always free. We will review your case details, briefly explain the claims/lawsuit process, and determine what the best strategy might look like given your individual circumstances.
If we agree to take your case, the contingency arrangement means that you don’t have to pay anything up front. We will provide all of our services at no initial charge to you. That includes court fees, medical record retrieval costs, and many other other items.
If your case results in a settlement agreement between you, an insurer, or some other third party, we will take a percentage of the overall settlement as payment. If a settlement agreement cannot be reached, we will in most circumstances be willing to file a lawsuit and participate in a trial. If the jury or judge awards money to you, we receive a portion of this award.
Very few cases do not result in successful recovery, either through a settlement or court award. In these instances, you as the client owe nothing.
So, in sum, a contingency agreement with an Atlanta truck and car accident lawyer means you get a free initial consultation, you pay nothing up front if the attorney agrees to take on your case, and you pay nothing unless you recover at least some money through the insurance or court process.
What Are the Advantages of a Contingency Fee Arrangement?
There are many advantages to a contingency fee agreement.
The most important is that everyone has access to a lawyer, including those who are usually at a disadvantage in the legal system. If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you are going to be reluctant to spend money on a lawyer while also dealing with medical bills and other losses. Being able to hire a truck accident lawyer for no upfront cost instantly equips you with a legal advocate who has the knowledge and passion to pursue your claim.
Second, contingency fees mean that your attorney assumes all of the financial risk. We invest our own time and resources in your case to secure a settlement or court award for you.
In some legal cases, the victim (or plaintiff) is forced to invest their own money in legal services. If they’re unsuccessful, they lose time and money. With a contingency arrangement, the plaintiff assumes no monetary risk.
Third, having our payment contingent on your case’s success means that we are highly motivated to do everything we can to help you win. We examine every possible type of damages and consider all potentially liable parties. This is so that we can seek the maximum amount of damages available for all of your accident losses.
One final advantage is that the client does not have to worry about the cost of each individual service or legal expense.
This means you get access to the resources of the Law Offices of Andrew E. Goldner, LLC including our legal aides, discovery capabilities, mediation and trial record, and more.
You Can Afford a Truck Accident Lawyer – But You May Not Be Able to Afford Not Having One
Insurance companies are used to dealing with claimants who are not represented by attorneys. They may try to deny your claim in part or full, deny liability for the accident, pressure you into accepting a “lowball” offer or even threaten to countersue.
Damages in a truck accident can be significant, and failing to account for the costs of future treatment and lost income can be burdensome for you and your family. Insurance companies are not looking out for you or your needs, but a truck accident lawyer in Atlanta will.
