The answer in most personal injury cases is “yes.” And the reason for that is ordinary people that just have a normal job cannot afford to pay lawyers hundreds of dollars an hour like insurance companies and like large corporations can afford. You have to hire a lawyer who will basically work for free, spend his time and money, hire experts, pay employees, not charge an hourly rate, take depositions and do that with the idea of when I recover money for my client, I’m going to get a percentage of that fee.
And the reason that that’s a good system is we’re on the same team. We only take cases that we believe in. The more money that we get our clients, the more money that we make – and we’re going to rise and fall with our clients. And we’re willing to take that risk for them in cases that we believe in.
