In a personal injury case, if you do not recover, then the lawyer does not get paid either. To “recover” means to be paid an amount for your injuries and damages. If for whatever reasons, you are not paid or are unsuccessful with your claim, then the lawyer does not get paid either. This encourages people to make claims for wrongdoing, seek damages for injuries they have suffered without the risk of “going bankrupt” if they lose. The lawyer who takes your case takes on some risk that they may not get paid for his/her services, if not successful. At Zachar Law Firm, we evaluate cases up front, give you a realistic expectation of the case and do our very best to meet that expectation and earn the fee in the end.
Remember, personal injury law in Arizona can be extremely complex. There are many variables involved, and it can cause confusion. Having the right law firm representing you will make all the difference in your case.
