The majority of attorneys who specialize in pursuing asbestos exposure cases work on a contingency fee basis
Asbestos exposure cases are very complex and challenging to pursue, as solid evidence must be submitted along with the claim to asbestos trust funds or the VA. However, most attorneys who specialize in recovering compensation for the victims of asbestos exposure do not require the client to pay anything unless they succeed in obtaining compensation on their behalf. Asbestos lawyers, including our attorneys, work on a contingency fee basis, which means that the client does not owe anything to the law firm until compensation is recovered from the liable parties. We collect a contingency fee only if we are able to receive compensation in the form of settlements or trial verdicts. The contingency fee ranges between 33% and 40% of the entire amount of money we recover for you. However, if we begin the legal process and fail to obtain the compensation you are eligible for, you do not owe us anything.
The money we will keep from your compensation in the event of a successful asbestos exposure case is meant to cover the efforts and work of our attorneys and legal team to prepare your claim and the necessary documents which accompany it before submission. Our legal process includes evaluation of work records, medical records, and asbestos product identification before filing a claim. All the expenses will be borne by our law firm, as we genuinely work towards receiving fair compensation for our clients. Thereby, only when a settlement is reached the contingency fee will be deducted from the amount of money you receive.
