What does “Free Consultation” and “If you Don’t Win, You Don’t Pay” Mean in Personal Injury Cases?
When looking for Houston Personal Injury lawyer, you will come across attorneys’ ads claiming that the “consultation is free” and if you “don’t win, you don’t pay”? Well, what does that really mean?
Law firms offering a free consultation in personal injury cases are offering to speak to you about whether you have a case at no cost to you. That means, the lawyer will discuss you issue and provide you with a legal opinion about whether you have a case. You won’t have to pay for this consultation.
Once you hire a lawyer to help you in your personal injury case, you then need to be aware about how you will pay for your lawyer.
Houston Injury lawyers work on personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis. That means, for them to collect attorney’s fees, they have to win your case. Therefore, if you don’t win, you don’t pay the attorney’s fees and, the expenses the firm has made in working your case.
In the end, your attorney should be able to explain how fees are paid very easily and, you should have a complete understanding once you sign that contract.
Don’t let anyone take advantage of you.

If you don’t win, you don’t pay!
