Paying My Attorney

How Do I Pay My Attorney?

When an individual is injured on the job, they may be hesitant to hire a workers’ compensation attorney because they assume that they will need to come up with a large sum of money in order to do so. This assumption keeps many individuals from filing for damages that they are entitled to, and forces those individuals to keep working without seeking proper medical care or taking adequate time off to heal. At Snow, Carpio & Weekley, PLC, we believe that individuals should not have to suffer through an injury just because they cannot afford the high hourly fees associated with most lawyers, or because they cannot afford a large retainer upfront, which is why we work on a contingency fee basis.


What Is a Contingency Fee?

A  contingency fee arrangement is one in which a client agrees to pay the lawyer a fixed percentage of the damages recovered. Contingency fees are suitable for most clients in that they eliminate the need to pay a large amount of money upfront, thereby allowing clients from all socioeconomic backgrounds the ability to receive the quality legal representation they need to file a successful workers’ compensation claim in Arizona. Furthermore, when a lawyer charges a contingency fee, he or she only gets paid if the client wins their case. If they lose the case, there is no fee. This provides our Arizona workers’ compensation claims attorneys the incentive they need to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, all of the time.

What Does a Contingency Fee Cover?

According to the State Bar of Arizona, a contingency fee agreement must clearly outline the expenses for which the client is responsible, win or lose. Furthermore, it must outline whether the litigation fees and other expenses will be deducted with the contingency fee, or if they are a separate charge upon the closing of the case. It must also state whether the attorney will pay the court and litigation fees up front, or if court and filing fees must be covered by the client.

At Snow, Carpio & Weekley, PLC, our Arizona workers’ compensation attorneys cover the costs of litigating your case up front, and ask that our clients reimburse us if they win their case. Litigating expenses are not covered by the standard contingency fee agreement. Some common expenses incurred over the course of a case include:

Requests for medical records;
Independent examinations by physicians;
Costs of depositions;
Travel expenses;
Copying costs;
Phone, email, and communication fees;
Costs of postage; and
Filing fees.

Before hiring an attorney, be sure that you understand precisely what costs are covered in your contingency fee agreement, and which you will be directly responsible for both upfront and upon the closing of your case.
