The way attorneys charge for their services vary according to the type of case that is involved.
Some lawyers charge a certain amount per hour to work on your case. This is usually for business cases or criminal cases.
In these type of cases the lawyer may ask for an upfront retainer fee to start working on your case.
Fortunately in injury cases, workers’ compensation cases, and Social Security Disability cases there are no upfront fees and no hourly fees.
In these type of injury cases you only pay the lawyer if you win your case. The payment is due when you win and recover money.
This is very important for you because usually a person who is injured or when they are unable to work does not have the money to pay a lawyer on an hourly basis.
Many people do not know that they even have access to a lawyer when they are hurt and can no longer work.
Make sure that you take full advantage that a lawyer will work for free for you until you win.
You can utilize the attorney’s experience to protect your interests from the beginning of the case, and fight for you against the government and insurance companies.
