What is the cost of our services for legal help with personal injury and other legal matters?
In this section, we will explore how legal fees work and how we get paid depending on the type of case you need representation for and how the case works through the system.
Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. That means you do not pay us anything up front. We do not take a retainer payment, nor do we charge by the hour. We get paid a percentage of the monies we win for you. That means if we do not win, you do not pay us.

There are 2 kinds of damages
Compensation for damages:
- Is a sum of money that the court awards a person for damages, losses, and injuries caused in an accident.
- Pays for the injuries caused in the accident.
- Covers the loss of the property that was destroyed.
- Pays your debts and medical bills at the hospital.
- Pays for the time you need to recover so that you can return to work.
- Pays for your pain, suffering, and anxiety problems.
- Is the opposite of compensation for damages.
- Punitive damages punishes the person for acting outside the law.
- The purpose is to compensate for inappropriate behavior and deter future behavior.
Example of damages
Assume a person who drives an 18 wheeler is under the influence of alcohol and is at fault for an accident with an automobile. Also assume the Trucking company knew that the person driving the 18 wheeler had a history of alcoholism. The person who was in the automobile files the lawsuit to recover their losses and to pay their expenses. In addition to recovering compensation for actual losses, in this scenario, the person in the automobile can recover punitive damages from both the driver of the 18 wheeler and the Trucking company that hired that driver.
