rail workers

Doran & Murphy railroad injury lawyers work on a contingency basis for railroad injuries. This means that we only get paid if we successfully resolve a case. If the client isn’t successful, neither are we.

In a contingency fee arrangement, you don’t pay your lawyer anything out of pocket. The attorneys’ fees are paid only out of settlement or verdict proceeds. Case expenses may be advanced on a client’s behalf, and repaid out of a settlement or verdict in addition to the fee.

This type of payment structure is common in personal injury cases and other types of litigation that are not covered by insurance policies (like car accidents). It can be difficult for accident victims to get legal help because they may be out of work due to their injuries, and are unable to pay an attorney upfront, or on an hourly basis. The contingency fee arrangement solves this by ensuring that clients without funds are still able to pursue justice for their injuries.

Having an attorney who is working on a contingent fee also can make clients feel better knowing that the attorney is working as hard as possible on their behalf. Our fee is directly related to how good of a job we do representing our clients – the more a client receives, the more we receive as well. This type of fee arrangement ensures that everyone is on the same team, working toward the same result – the most compensation possible.

With a contingency fee, if you lose, we don’t get paid. This means that we are selective about the types of cases that we take on – making sure that we only take on meritorious cases where we think that there is a good chance of recovery. The best way to know if you have a valid claim is to call our office and talk to an attorney.
