Think You Cannot Afford An Attorney? Think Again.

Despite the fact that workplace injury victims need to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney as soon as possible, many don’t ― often because of their mistaken belief that they cannot afford quality legal representation.

Fortunately, this is not something you need to worry about at The Law Office of Gary C. Nelson. Since we handle workers’ compensation claims on a contingency fee basis, you will not have to pay any attorney fees unless we first obtain benefits or a recovery for you; meaning we can help regardless of the size of your bank account.

Fees And Costs: How Do Contingency Fee Arrangements Work?

Basically, a contingency fee arrangement works like this: You hire us to take on your workers’ compensation case, and only when we win do we collect attorney fees, which are typically limited to a percentage of your recovery. It is also important to note that a judge must approve every settlement and all fees.

There are several advantages of a contingency fee arrangement, including:

  • You are never on the hook for any attorney fee, from your initial free consultation to the moment your case is completed
  • You only pay at the end, and this payment comes out of your recovery, so again, no risk to you
  • You will not owe attorney fees in the rare event that we are unable to obtain you compensation

For those who could not otherwise afford to pay a lawyer up-front, contingency fee arrangements are the best and more cost-effective way to obtain the legal representation they need and deserve. So contact us today and learn how we can help you.
