Do some lawyers really work on a no-win no-fee basis? This sounds too good to be true. How does this work?
If you’re injured in an accident in Texas, a personal injury lawyer can take your case on what’s called a contingency basis. This means the attorney will only charge you a percentage of the settlement or jury award that he/she recovers for you, and only after the case is won.
If your attorney is unable to recover money for you, you will owe them nothing for the time and effort spent on your case. The nice thing about this is that there is no financial risk to the client to have an attorney pursue their claim and ensure someone is looking out for their best interests.
In some rare instances, you may be obligated to pay back certain expenses that—as required by law—cannot be “paid for” by your attorney. If your attorney feels that such an expense is necessary to proving your claim, he or she will advise you of this and obtain your express permission before authorizing such an expense.
What About My Injuries, and Paying for a Doctor?
A personal injury lawyer has the ability to send you to a healthcare professional under what is called a letter of protection. This means that the healthcare provider will treat you without you paying any money out of pocket.
Through a letter of protection, the healthcare provider agrees only to be paid if and when the attorney recovers compensation in your case. If the attorney can’t recovery money for you, then you will not be responsible for paying for the medical treatment you received under the letter of protection. This ensures that you’re able to receive the medical attention you need, regardless of your ability to pay.
