I’m often asked: Hey Brian Goldfinger Personal Injury Lawyer: How do your fees work in a car accident case? Good question.
For starters, we take on about 99% of our cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t have to pay for your car accident or brain injury case until your case settles. All of our consultations are free free free. What else do you know of in life that’s free? Love? OK. You got me there. But in all seriousness, very few lawyers provide services on a contingency fee basis because of the inherent risk involved with the case. A personal injury lawyer Toronto will invest a lot of time, money and energy into building your personal injury case and risk getting nothing if they don’t recover any money for you.
I can’t think of another profession where services are provided free of charge for years until a lump sum is recovered. And make no mistake, a personal injury case, car accident Toronto case, brain injury lawyer Toronto case can last many many years.
Why do these personal injury, brain injury and car accident cases last many years? If insurance companies paid right away on any brain injury case, or car accident case which came across their desk, then the insurance companies would likely pay out more money in damage awards, then they would hope to achieve in premiums, investments and profits. Basically, the more money which insurance companies have to pay out to car accident, or brain injury lawyers for personal injury cases, the less money they will have in profit for their shareholders.
The imporant thing to do is to get a good personal injury lawyer who understands the state of the law for your car accident, or brain injury claim.
