You've been involved in an accident, or suffered injury at the hands of a doctor or hospital. You are thinking about bringing a lawsuit but don't know how you would pay an attorney to represent you. Learn how you can hire a New York medical malpractice or accident trial lawyer without having to pay a single penny upfront. This video explores what a "contingency fee" is and why it allows you, as an injured victim, the ability to hire the best trial lawyer you can find without having to pay them a single penny to investigate or prosecute your case. A hundred years ago, if you had a legal problem, you went to an attorney and paid for their time. But what if you couldn't afford to hire an attorney and you needed legal help? Many times, you were out of luck unless the lawyer was willing to take on your case without a fee (also known as pro bono). With a contingency fee, if the lawyer is ultimately successful in obtaining compensation for you, he or she will receive a percentage of the money that they have obtained on your behalf. This allows you to hire a great lawyer without having to pay them an hourly fee.
