Episode 12: What is a contingency fee?
For this episode of the Breaking Down The Law Podcast we're joined by Stewart J. Guss, a personal injury lawyer in Houston who specializes in car accidents resulting in injury. He's joined by Breaking Down The Law Podcast host, Ashley Rodriguez.
During today’s episode, we’ll be learning exactly what a contingency fee is? While it might seem straightforward, many drivers don’t realize you can often get a lawyer for free with no obligation.
- The first question you always ask a lawyer is how much is this going to cost me? Nothing upfront for a personal injury lawyer, we will work and never charge you unless we make a recovery. Some lawyers however do charge upfront.
- Why should I give away some of my recovery when I can just handle it by myself? We work to get you what you're actually entitled to not what they are going to offer. One thing a good personal injury lawyer will do for a client besides getting the most from the insurance, we will also negotiate all of your medical bills.
- Some doctors won't even see you if you were in a car accident but sometimes we can offer you a LOP so you don’t have to pay anything upfront for your medical bills.
- Our clients are always first, we tell you what your options are and let you ask all of your questions and support your decision on your case
