Can I Afford a Lawyer for my Personal Injury Case?

One concern for folks who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence is whether they can afford legal representation to pursue their claim.  When you retain the Colorado Springs Injury Attorneys at Rosenbaum & Wootton, P.C. to represent you in your personal injury case, we will invest in your case and reduce your financial risk by offering to work for you on a contingency fee basis.

About Contingency Fees

A Contingency Fee is an agreement where a law firm agrees to represent a client without taking any money up front and instead, the parties agree, in writing, to a fixed percentage which will be paid to the law firm upon settlement or award in the case.  When a law firm agrees to work on a contingency fee basis, the firm will also agree to advance costs necessary to handle the client’s case.  While it is an ethical violation for a law firm to advance funds to a client to cover living expenses, it is permissible for a law firm to cover costs of litigation and preparing for litigation, such as costs for things like postage, copies, medical records, and retained experts.   

We Invest in Our Clients

We do not agree to take a case unless we believe we can place a client in a better position than the client was in when we first met him.  For this reason, we do not rush to sign up new clients or apply a high pressure sales pitch to prevent prospective clients from shopping around only to cut them loose a few months later when we discover some weaknesses in the case.  While no attorney can guarantee a particular outcome for any case, we invest in our clients’ cases by carefully selecting the cases we do take, by working on contingency, and by advancing costs to cover case expenses along the way. 

We Reduce Financial Risk for Our Clients

Because we work on a contingency basis, the client bears less financial risk to pursue her claim.  This is because if we are unable to recover compensation for the client or if the client suffers a loss at trial, we do not collect any fees.  This is another way we invest in our clients while also reducing the likelihood that they will be in a worse financial position after the conclusion of their cases than when we started working for them.
