We at The Fitch Law Firm work on what is known as a contingent fee. That simply means that if there is no recovery, there is no fee.
We work on a percentage basis, a percentage of the gross amount recovered on behalf of the client. Our fee varies depending upon the type of case that we’re handling. It would not be uncommon for us to charge a 25% fee, pre-litigation or prior to the time the suit was filed for a simple automobile accident case in which there was no dispute about liability.
In addition to that, we’d advance expenses on behalf of the client. So, to make things simple, let’s assume that the total recovery is $10,000. The fee in that case would be $2,500. If we advance $100 in expenses, we’d also be repaid the expenses in that case. If, on the other hand, the case is not successful and we’re not able to recover anything on behalf of the client, there is no fee and the client would not be obligated to pay any expenses.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident then call us at (614) 545-3930 today for a free, confidential and no obligation review of your case.
