Our Firm's Contingency Fee Arrangement

Can you afford to hire a Dayton personal injury attorney?

Being injured or losing a loved one in an accident places you in a difficult situation. You have to contend with medical bills for emergency treatment, hospitalization and ongoing rehabilitative care, at a time when you may have been forced out of work and your family may have lost its primary source of income. Many people in your position wonder, "How could I possibly afford to hire a personal injury attorney?" Fortunately, if you choose Gounaris Abboud, LPA to represent your case, you may not need to worry about paying attorney fees up front.

No Win, No Fee Attorney

While many law firms charge an initial retainer to take on a client's case, we charge our clients on a contingent fee basis. This is an arrangement under which we do not charge you a single penny until we win your case, at which time we take a percentage of the financial compensation you receive, whether in the form of an insurance settlement or an award from a jury verdict. Contingency fees make it possible for people with limited financial resources to afford legal representation, thereby leveling the playing field between you and the insurance company.

Putting More Money in Your Pockets

The insurance company may discourage you from hiring an attorney to represent you in your claim. Claims representatives often point to the fact that you will have to give up a percentage of your settlement as a reason why you should not retain a lawyer. What they won't tell you is that individuals who hire attorneys will frequently receive a far greater amount than those who represent themselves. Remember, the insurance company's goal is directly opposite to yours-they want to pay you the smallest settlement possible in order to protect their bottom line. They will make an offer of a fast-and meager-settlement in hopes that the accident victim will accept the payment and close the case. If you are serious about recovering the maximum compensation for your injuries, it is absolutely in your best interests to hire an attorney from the outset of your accident claim.
