Fees / Contingency

If we agree to undertake your automobile accident, medical malpractice, product liability or other personal injury case, we would only be paid when and if we recover money for you. This is called a contingent fee arrangement which is quite common among personal injury attorneys. All Fee Agreements, however, are not the same. We believe our fee agreement is among the most attractive that you will find from any law firm. Better Preparation, Dynamic Performance, Maximum Recovery, and a Fair Contingent Fee Agreement can make a big difference in the amount of money you are paid for your damages.

OTHER FEE AGREEMENTS: the type of case or problem that comes to us dictates the fee arrangement for work on your case. We, at Bill Jorden Litigation Team, enter into fee agreements, some standard, some creative, with our clients for cases not involving accident or injury. Such arrangements include fixed one-time charges, fixed charges with a payment plan, charges by the hour subject to monthly billing, sliding scale charges based on results or a combination of any of the above.

Statute Of Limitations

It is important to know that there is a limited period of time in which to file a law suit. If a suit is not filed within that required time, the right to do so is forever lost. The laws relating to statute of limitations vary from state-to-state. Also, statutes of limitations differ depending upon the type of case.

Though there are exceptions in Pennsylvania, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, product liability and other personal injury suits must be filed within two years of the incident.

Exceptions include a longer time limit resulting from the “Minor’s Tolling Statute” and the “Discovery Rule.”

What The Insurance Company Does Not Want You To Know

Insurance companies are in the business to make money. The simple fact is, the less the insurance company has to pay out in claims, the more of your premiums become profit for the company.

You cannot expect your insurance company to tell you what you need to do in the event of an accident in order to increase the amount that the insurance company will have to pay out in order to fully compensate you for your damages. We have prepared for our clients a special list of instructions that is designed to maximize our clients’ economic recovery. We are pleased to offer to mail the same information to you, or call our office to request your free instructions. If you would like to talk to one of our attorneys, you may fill out the free consult form or telephone our office.
