Contingency & Your Free Consultation

A Longwood Personal Injury Lawyer Working on Contingency Fees

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall accident, or by a defective medical product, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed by the situation. You very likely have concerns about how you will pay for your medical bills, who pays for your time you’ve missed from work, and how you’ll support yourself financially until you’re able to return to work.

If hired, our Longwood personal injury attorney will make sure that the legal and financial elements of your recovery are handled so that you can focus on your mental and physical recovery. Call (407) 315-2932 to arrange your free consultation.

What does Contingency Mean? Are there any Up-Front Fees to Hire an Injury Lawyer?

There are no up-front fees to hire Cerasa Law Firm to represent you in your injury case. We are paid on a “Contingency” basis, which means that our fee is ‘contingent’ or depends on the amount of money we recover on your behalf. That also means that if we do not win at trial or secure a recovery on your behalf, you owe nothing. There are never any up-front fees to have us represent you in any injury case.

What Happens at the Free Consultation?

If you’ve looked at a handful of injury lawyers’ websites, you’ve probably seen that they all offer a “free consultation”. You might be wondering exactly what happens at a free consultation and why a lawyer would be willing to meet with you for free. There are some lawyers who try to use the “free consultation” just to get you in their office and put on high-pressure sales tactics. At Cerasa law firm, we start each consultation by simply asking you what happened. We answer any questions you have and then explain what you should expect in terms of a legal process. We do not make big promises or pressure you to sign during the first meeting. We simply want you to gain a basic understanding of how Florida law applies to your situation and your options for moving forward.

The Insurance Company is already offering me a settlement, why do I need a lawyer?

The insurance company who is responsible for your accident is hoping that they can get you to accept an offer without you hiring an injury lawyer. The reason is simple: it saves them a lot of money.

Your settlement will typically be much larger with an attorney on your side. When you accept a settlement for an injury without a lawyer, you are basically just offered a “take it or leave it” number by the insurance company, it’s a simple lump sum meant to look like a lot of money. When you have a lawyer on your side, they work to calculate your expenses, both past and future, and will also figure in their fee before settling on a number. So in the end, the injury victim with an attorney will almost always wind up with a much better settlement than someone who is not represented.
