What is a “Contingency Fee Attorney”?

We get phone calls inquiring whether or not we are willing to represent an individual who has suffered a loss as a result of an automobile accident. The first thing we are asked is, “How much is it going to cost me? I don’t have a lot of money and I really can’t afford, at this time particularly, to pay for a lawyer.”
It’s important for everyone to realize, you don’t pay up front for a personal injury lawyer. Personal injury lawyers are called “Contingency Fee Attorneys”. We only get paid if you receive a settlement. Our fee is contingent upon you receiving some money. We get a percentage of that. A contract approved by the Florida Bar, which is used by most lawyers, grants the attorney one third of the total recovery. Believe me, when you have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in doctors’ bills you want the best recovery you can get to pay off all those medical bills, to pay off the repairs to your car and to put money in your pocket for future problems you may experience. Paying a third for that privilege is a bargain.
If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, an auto accident, a slip and fall, or more importantly medical malpractice, call us. We’re here for you.Our toll free number is 800-332-1992 or email us at
