If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you need to contact us at Villarreal Law Firm to act on your behalf. Why? So that you get the full amount of compensation that is due to you according to law.
Not to put too fine a point on it, insurance companies hate to pay out. The more they pay out the less profit they make, and the reverse is also true. So, they will fight tooth and nail to pay you as little compensation as they can get away with. That is why you need a personal injury lawyer to act on your behalf and give them as good as they get.
Now, what many people fail to understand is that, as personal injury lawyers we work on what is known as a contingency fee structure. The definition of the word “contingent” from the dictionary of Oxford Languages is as follows: occurring or existing only if (certain circumstances) are the case; dependent on”.
In our case, “certain circumstances” means that we manage to obtain for you the amount of compensation that you are due. So, to put it in simple English, our contingency fee structure means that we work for nothing unless, or until, you get paid your compensation.
What Could Be Better?
What could be better? You have expert lawyers here in Brownsville working for you and fighting the insurance company to get you every last cent that the law says you are due, and if we somehow fail to get you any compensation then we don’t charge you anything. That is a very unlikely situation, but in short, if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. We simply agree a fee with you at the outset which will usually be a percentage of the total amount we recover for you.
Simple example of our contingency fee structure. Let’s say we agree a fee of 25%. We win you $200,000. You pay us $50,000 and you get $150,000! Now, on our side there are a lot of costs involved and those have to come out of our $50,000. You get your full $150,000.
Here are a couple of other things. We don’t like to work for nothing. We don’t think that is a very good idea. So, you can bet your bottom dollar we are going all out to win for you!
Even better, from our point of view, our contingency fee structure means that the more we win for you, the more we get paid. So, it is in both our interests to get you as much as we possibly can.
If that isn’t a win-win situation, we don’t know what is!
