A personal injury law firm probably works in a broader swath of the law than you think. They cover everything from deaths and injuries that happen on the road to the same incidents that happen in doctor’s offices. They represent individuals whose babies have suffered injuries during birth and people who bought a product that they thought was safe, and who were hurt or killed because they’d been led astray in that regard. These law firms sometimes work under special agreements with their clients that allow individuals who don’t have a lot of money to exercise their legal rights.
A contingency agreement is one where the attorney begins working on your case at no charge. It usually comes with a free consultation. During the consultation, the attorney will determine if it seems like you have a case and if they’re interested in taking it up for you. Depending upon what type of case you’re filing, they may consult with experts in that field to see if it seems like your case is one that’s likely to win. If it is, you don’t have to pay to have it move forward.
