Choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer

When you have a personal injury claim, one of the most important decisions you will make is choosing the right personal injury lawyer for you.  Your lawyer will make a huge impact on the success of your personal injury claim. The attorney you choose will greatly affect your experience through the legal process and the outcome of your case whether that be in the form of a settlement or a trial.  

When the stakes are high for you personally, how do you ensure you are hiring the right personal injury lawyer near Hamilton, Ohio?

Contingency Fees

Depending on the specifics of your case, the length of time it takes a case to be resolved can vary greatly. Some cases can take years to come to a resolution or eventually go to trial. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee, which means that you pay no upfront cost. Your lawyer works as hard and as long as it takes to resolve your case. They only get paid once you receive a recovery of damages you are seeking. 

At The Richards Firm, we work on contingency fees ensuring our clients always get our best efforts and best results. Our fee model includes:

  • Free consultation
  • No upfront costs
  • We only get paid when you do

Trial Experience

Not all personal injury cases go to trial. Many times a settlement agreement can be reached before a trial becomes necessary. If your claim does go to trial you want to have a personal injury lawyer who has trial experience. At The Richards Firm, we have experience negotiating settlements and representing our clients in trials. You never know where a case is going to take you so strong trial representation is vital.
