Contingency Fees

What Are Contingency Fees?

You Pay Nothing Unless/Until We Recover Compensation for You

When a person is injured on the job or in an accident and they have to hire an attorney, one of the questions that they commonly want answered first is, who pays their attorney? If you’ve been hurt in an accident, then you’re most likely under enough stress already and the last thing you want to have to worry about is paying an attorney out of your own pocket in order to pursue a claim against the person or party who caused your injuries.

At Powers & Caccavale, we work on a contingent fee basis, which means we don’t get paid unless our client gets paid. Our fee is contingent on us winning you money. Our attorney fee is a certain percentage of any recovery of damages (money) we get for you, whether by a settlement, judgement, or otherwise.

Because we work on a contingency fee basis, our clients don’t have to worry about paying us out of their own pocket for the amount of time we spend working on their case. Instead, they know from the beginning of the case that our attorney fee will be a certain percentage of the gross amount of any recovery that they ultimately receive. The exact percentage of the attorney fee depends on the nature of the client’s case and is set in our initial meeting with our clients.

Who Pays Lawsuit Expenses?

Our office also forwards the upfront expenses associated with the pursuit of their case, such as the costs incurred collecting medical records/bills, filing a complaint in court, or paying for deposition transcripts. You do not have to worry about coming up with any out-of-pocket expenses associated with your claim when our Quincy workers’ compensation and personal injury lawyers work on your case.

You can speak with one of our lawyers over the phone or at one of our four convenient locations. Call us today at (617) 379-0016 or contact us online to get started.
