Newport News Injury Attorneys
After an accident, many plaintiffs are concerned about the cost of filing a personal injury claim. Ongoing medical treatment for their injuries can cause further financial strain for victims. How can they afford to pay for quality legal counsel?
Thankfully, our team at Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. works on a contingency fee basis for personal injury and wrongful death cases. Instead of plaintiffs having to find the means to pay a retainer, contingency fee arrangements require no upfront fees. The attorney fees are paid from a percentage of the total recovery. If there is no monetary recovery, there is no attorney’s fee.
Contingent fee arrangements allow individuals of all economic backgrounds to retain professional legal representation. It helps level the playing field when dealing with insurance companies. Without the assistance of an astute attorney, many injured individuals fall victim to insurance companies who will try their best to deny or minimize a claim. Hiring a personal injury lawyer provides the plaintiff with the aggressive advocacy required to maximize a recovery.
Contingent fee arrangements also minimize risk. We only accept personal injury and wrongful death cases that we believe have a high probability of recovery. In the extremely rare situations where there is no recovery, our clients do not owe any attorney’s fees and only have to reimburse our firm for our out of pocket costs and expenses. In essence, when we accept a case on a contingent fee basis, we are partnering with you to obtain the largest recovery on your behalf.
If you have been harmed by the negligent actions of another, you don't have to settle for the meager amount hastily offered by the insurance company. You may be entitled to much more compensation than you have been led to believe. Our experienced Newport News injury lawyers welcome the opportunity to meet with you and assess the value of your case.
