If you’ve been injured in an accident, you are likely under financial stress. In addition to medical expenses, you may have lost income from not being able to work. You might even be responsible for paying to repair or replace damaged property.
New York law provides for legal fees to be paid on a contingency basis so that injured parties do not have to produce funds for legal fees in advance. Instead, injured parties can compensate their attorneys on the contingency that they are awarded a settlement or judgment.
In short, you do not have to be concerned about how involved your case becomes or how long it may be before you recover damages, the legal term used to describe financial compensation. You do not pay hourly fees. The Law Offices of James Morris covers the cost of legal services through a pre-determined percentage of the settlement you recover in damages. If we don’t recover a favorable settlement or judgment, there is no fee at all.
