Understanding Contingency Fees
Fargo Personal Injury Attorneys on Your Side
When you're facing mounting medical bills, emotional trauma, lost wages, and more after a personal injury or loss of a loved one, the last thing you want to do is worry about hiring an attorney. This often means legal fees at a time when finances are already a heavy burden. Marquard & Associates understands this struggle. For this reason, we offer our services on a contingency fee basis, helping to lift the financial burden from your shoulders.
What Contingency Fees Mean
We prioritize the healing of families after a tragic accident. As you choose your Fargo injury attorney, select one that not only is skilled and experienced in handling personal injury cases but is also dedicated to your personal goals. Contingency fee attorneys are generally only available for specific practice areas of law, including personal injury. Our firm strives to make sure all individuals have the opportunity to retain solid, reliable counsel for their claims.
Contingency fees have the following advantages:
- You do not pay up front for our services.
- We front the cost of any expenses.
- We see your claim through to the settlement.
- After the settlement has been reached, we then collect our fees.
- If you do not recover losses, then we do not collect fees.
We protect you by agreeing upon the circumstances of our legal fees ahead of time. In general, contingency fees are a percentage of the total settlement reached. In addition to our contingency fees, we also offer free case consultations. During this free initial consultation, feel free to ask any questions you may have about how we calculate our contingency fees and what agreements generally involve. This can help you feel more comfortable about working with our compassionate team of Fargo lawyers.
