Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Board Certified Medical Malpractice Attorney
I’ve often been asked the question “can I afford a lawyer?” In a case involving serious issues, such as a medical malpractice case or a case involving permanent life-long injury, people are often intimidated by the prospect of hiring a lawyer. Knowing that these cases obviously can take years, which entails hundreds, if not thousands of hours. Paying a lawyer on an hourly basis to take on such a case is prohibative for most people. The answer to the question “can I afford a lawyer?” is YES!
At my law office, we take these cases on a contingent fee basis. We screen and evaluate carefully, and we don’t accept all of the cases that we are approached with. If the case has merit, and if the case justifies pursuit, then we will handle it on a contingent fee basis; that is, the attorney fee is figured as a percentage of the recovery, and is paid at the time of the recovery. If there is no recovery, there is no attorney fee. In addition, we do not charge for an initial consultation. If we decide that your case has merit and justifies pursuit, we will partner with you, and take on the risks of handling your case. We will put in our time, our effort and our resources in an effort to try to successfully conclude your case; and bring you not only closure, but adequate compensation for future injury.
