At Plattner Verderame, P.C., we represent injury victims and their families in claims against the parties who caused them harm. When potential clients first call us, they often have similar questions: what will it cost? What do you do?
Our attorneys have put together a few short videos addressing some of those common questions about contingency fees, so you can feel confident in your decision to call us for help.
How Much Does It Cost to Bring a Case?
As Arizona injury attorneys we work on a contingency fee basis. What that means is we earn a percentage of what we get for our clients. We don’t charge hourly fees, so you may hear about free initial consultations, but for us, being that we work on a contingency fee, the initial consultation and every consultation is free because there’s no hourly charge. We get a percentage of what we earn for you by way of judgment or a settlement.
What’s a Contingent Fee, and Why Is It Important?
A contingent fee means that the fee is contingent on the outcome. It means the lawyer doesn’t get paid unless their client recovers, and it typically means that what the lawyer does get paid is a percentage of the amount that we recover for you. A contingent fee is really the ordinary person’s key to the courthouse because very few folks have the wherewithal, have the funds, to pay hundreds of dollars per hour to go for justice. A contingent fee gives you the opportunity to have access to the courts and make rights real.
