Personal Injury Fees

Personal Injury Fees

 

Unlike many other areas of legal representation, personal injury cases are usually taken on by lawyers on a ‘contingency basis’. This means that a law firm agrees to a personal injury fee that is a percentage of the amount recovered in a lawsuit on behalf of the injured person. In the event that there is no recovery, the law firm collects no fees.

Roger R. Foisy and his team provide initial consultations absolutely free of charge.

We will be happy to meet with you to discuss the possibility of retaining our services. The initial meeting can be held at our office or may be held at your home. Initial consultations can last up to two hours and are always free.

Personal injury legal fees are charged only for a successful financial recovery on your behalf. We clearly outline our fee arrangement with you in a contingency fee agreement.

For contingency retainer agreements signed on or after July 1, 2021, new amendments to the lawyer and paralegal conduct rules came into effect regarding how contingency fees are calculated and charged. Read this guide carefully before you enter into any agreement about contingency fees. Lawyers and paralegals are required to give you this guide when you first meet with them to discuss contingency fees.  Additional information about contingency fees is available on LSO.ca.

Roger R. Foisy provides each prospective client with an easy to understand agreement which clearly explains the lawyer-client relationship and how any monies received will be handled. Every personal injury client who retains the legal services of Roger R. Foisy is provided with a signed copy of the agreement between them and the law firm.

A mutually agreed upon fee is fully explained in writing so that there are no surprises at the conclusion of your case.
