How much do I need to pay an asbestos attorney?

Since most lawyers who pursue asbestos exposure cases work on a contingency fee basis, you will only have to pay your attorneys if they recover compensation for you.

Most attorneys specialized in 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. As our client, you will never pay for the upfront fees, hourly or daily fees, or out-of-pocket costs.

Why you should consider Environmental Litigation Group P.C. to help with your claim

  • we will help you understand your options including the factors that will contribute to your claim
  • ensure that the statute of limitations does not prevent you from filing a claim
  • gather evidence to prove your claim
  • maximize the amount of compensation you may receive from an asbestos trust fund
  • help you recover much-needed compensation after a loved one dies of an asbestos-related disease

The contingency fee will be deducted from the amount of money you receive

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, we collect a contingency fee only if we are able to receive compensation in the form of settlements or trial verdicts.
