In most cases our fee is contingency based, which means that if we do not recover damages and compensation for your injury, we do not get paid.
In pesonal injury law an accident attorney in Washington or Oregon means that there is not necessarily a guarantee that the accident attorney will be paid for his/her efforts in a a personal injury claim by a injured party. The contingency fee is very beneficial to a client, which basically means that there is an agreement between the client and the personal injury attorney stating that in the event that compensation is awarded for the claim of injury due to negligence, the personal injury attorney Vancouver Washington will receive a certain percentage of the compensation as their legal fees. The percentage depends on the complexity of the case, how likely it is to succeed, and the amount of compensation that the personal injury attorney may suspect will be awarded. In contrast, in the event that the case is lost and no compensation is awarded, the clients are not responsible for paying the personal injury attorney for their efforts at all. This is highly beneficial to the clients.
Benefits of No Recovery No Fee based Accident Attorney Representation
