If you’ve been injured in a car accident, don’t hire a law firm until you know the answer to this one very important question: Why should an attorney who does a bad job get to then charge you a higher fee?
Don’t Let an Attorney Charge You More for Going to Court
Many personal injury attorneys will try to get you in the door by telling you that they charge a one third fee, or 33%, to handle your claim, but the contract they want you to sign will also state they charge you a higher fee of 40 to 45%, or maybe even more, just for filing a lawsuit.
At Carrollton Injury Law we never increase the fee on our clients for anything. It does not make sense – just think about it. Why does an attorney who doesn’t get you a settlement get to charge you more for going to court? No other businesses work that way.
Before you sign an attorney contract, make sure you ask that attorney why his fee increases if he doesn’t do a good job by getting you a settlement without the lawsuit.
Attorneys Who Charge More for Filing a Lawsuit are Not Incentivized to Handle Your Claim Quickly
How will you know if your attorney really tried that hard? How do you know the attorney didn’t stall on your case just to tell you many months later that a lawsuit must be filed? This just means that more money comes out of your pocket. To make matters worse, there are many attorneys out there that do not understand the insurance adjustment process, so they never even try to get you a settlement.
And why not? Filing a lawsuit means they get to charge you a larger fee. The attorney who does that is never going to be incentivized to stay out of court. At Carrollton Injury Law we charge our clients the same percentage whether we settle your injury claim or not.
We know that sometimes lawsuit is necessary to get the insurance company to do the right thing, but in the event we decide together that a lawsuit is necessary, you know that you will get good advice from our law firm because we’re not going to charge you a larger percentage when we go to court. Our interests are aligned.
