At Price Benowitz, LLP we represent people who have been injured as a result of an automobile accident, a slip and fall accident, or medical malpractice on a contingency fee basis. Our lawyers provide a free initial consultation and case assessment as well as offer free advice to anyone who calls with questions about their rights, the claims process, and what steps to take after sustaining an injury due to someone else's negligence. The initial consultation is important in order for our attorneys to determine if you have a case and for you to determine if you want to hire a Price Benowitz, LLP attorney to handle your case. Everything discussed during the initial consultation is confidential and the lawyer cannot discuss the details of your case with anyone outside of our firm.
After a consultation, if we decide to take your case and you decide to hire us, we will send you a Contingency Fee Agreement for your review and signature. A Contingency Fee Agreement should always be in writing. In a Contingency Fee Agreement you are not charged any upfront fee, but rather agree to pay us a certain percentage of the money received only if you win the case or settle the case out of court. If you lose your case, we do not receive any fee for our services. Similarly, our basic Contingency Fee Agreement explains the following:
- the services you can expect our lawyers to perform for you;
- that we will not charge you a fee in your case unless the case is won or a settlement is obtained on your behalf; and
- if we do obtain a settlement from the insurance company on your behalf, our fee is 1/3 of the gross recovery.
In other words, clients do not pay us a fee for our services unless they recover for their injuries. Our attorneys bring their experience and knowledge to your case and work hard for you because, in the end, we do not get paid unless we win your case and you are compensated for your injuries. In most personal injury cases, injured persons are compensated for the medical bills associated with medical treatment for their injuries and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering, mental anguish and inconvenience.
If you have been injured in an automobile accident, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to protect your interests and your rights as well as to navigate your claim against the insurance company. A Price Benowitz, LLP attorney could be that attorney for you. Call for your free initial consultation and case assessment today!
