What are contingency fees? When you hire a Long Island injury lawyer to handle your claim, there are various ways that the legal fees could be charged. If you ever contact a lawyer about an injury case and they ask you to pay them a fee up front, you need to move on immediately. Any firm that knows their business is willing to invest in you and your case, and take it on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay for legal representation if the lawyer meets with success in your case, and achieves a settlement or verdict. At The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. we take on cases only on a contingency basis. We are so confident of our abilities that we do not charge our clients any fees unless we win for you.
The Costs of Filing a Claim or Lawsuit
There are many costs involved in filing a claim for compensation, including court filing fees, enlisting the assistance of expert witnesses to go on the stand or write an opinion about your injuries, and the costs of deposing witnesses. A law firm that is confident of their ability to achieve success advances these costs for you while the case is pending. At our firm, this is how we operate. We know that you are probably struggling with expensive medical bills, lost income from work and are probably emotionally devastated. The last thing we feel you need to concern yourself with is paying for your representation before we have even been successful.
We charge our clients a percentage of the recovery, and our hard work has paid off for them in countless cases. Without an attorney, the average amount is 1/3 of what is usually possible in a personal injury case. This is well-established and insurance companies know it. They may even advise you to just deal directly with them - this could be a very serious mistake. Without knowledge of the law and what type of compensation for damages you could claim, you may accept a settlement that won't even cover your economic losses.
We determine all the damages in each and every case, and we fight for every possible form of compensation for our clients, all on a contingency fee basis.

Every case is carefully evaluated with regard to damages, and we will pursue the maximum possible under the law. The compensation will vary based upon the impact upon the individual. In a serious injury claim, such as a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, disfiguring burn injury or other type of life-changing injury, the compensation sought will be very high value, as the life of the victim is forever changed by the negligent actions of the individual responsible.
