The industry standard for Personal Injury attorneys, myself included, is contingency fee. So unless we help you get money, you don’t have to pay us for our time. So, I think that helps because you don’t need an upfront investment.
But as far as it being worth it, you have to imagine that this is what I do day in and day out. When I evaluate a case, I can see what problems we may have and what strengths the case has.
I can help address what those problems might be to build the strongest case possible. I think there is a correlation between fixing the problems in a case and the value of the case.
Also, these cases are littered with pitfalls that if you are not aware of, you can lose out. That includes statutes of limitation. If you miss the statute, you may not be able to recover anything.
To put this in a different light, most people can figure out how to bake a cake. But, most people ask a professional baker to bake their wedding cake. Why is that? Stakes are high. Getting it right really matters. So, if you would hire a professional baker to bake a cake, why wouldn’t you hire a lawyer to make sure that something really important turns out the best it can?
