The decision to take legal action following an injury is not always easy. There can be any number of factors that complicate or delay the decision to file a personal injury lawsuit. At Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, we don’t want up-front legal fees to be one of those.
Our Atlanta personal injury attorneys handle all cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay for our services unless we win your case. That’s right: you will only pay for our services if you win your case. With our contingency fee structure, there are no upfront costs, no hidden fees, and no surprises.
If you are in need of an attorney in Savannah, Decatur, Columbus, or nearby areas of Georgia, please call Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance at 404-760-7400 to schedule your free initial consultation today.
No Recovery, No Fee
Contingency fees take away the stress of paying an attorney by the hour or having to maintain a large retainer fee. Under this structure, an attorney will handle all aspects of your case, from building it to settlement negotiations, all the way to litigation and jury trial when needed, without an upfront fee. Instead, your attorney will accept a percentage of the total compensation you receive.
A study conducted by Martindale-Nolo Research found that the average settlement for a personal injury case that was not represented by a lawyer is around $18,000. With an attorney, the average is around $77,000, more than three-times what insurance companies are typically willing to offer.
We believe victims of serious injury are entitled to compensation that actually covers their damages. We also believe that victims of serious injury must be protected against the tricks and tactics used by the insurance industry to cheat people out of fair compensation. When you choose to work with Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, you are selecting a team of dedicated and experienced personal injury lawyers who will protect you against predatory insurance companies while fighting to secure every penny you are due.
What is Not Covered
Our contingency fee eliminates the hourly costs associated with the work our firm does on and for a case. It does not include court and filing fees, discovery fees, or fees related to things like securing expert witnesses or medical records. During your free case review, we will discuss what is and is not covered by the contingency fee in greater detail.
Research shows that the average award for people who hire an attorney is about 77% higher than for those who seek compensation on their own. This can make those costs not covered by a contingency fee negligible in the end. During your obligation-free consultation, we will provide you with honest information about the viability of your case to help you determine if hiring a lawyer makes sense.
