Personal injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency contract. A contingency contract is one that permits the clients to hire a skilled attorney without having to pay any money in advance for the attorney, the court costs, expert costs, or any of the other expenses. The client also does not have to pay the attorney by the hour as the case moves forward in the justice system. Also, the attorney does not get paid unless he wins the case. Some attorneys and clients do not seem to want to talk about these issues but at Coxwell & Associates, a personal injury law firm in Jackson, Hinds County, Mississippi, we believe it is important to discuss the initial terms of employment. The lawyers at Coxwell & Associates focus their time and energy on serious, catastrophic injury cases. What this means is that we will not generally accept a case unless there is some serious physical injury, or an emotional injury that arose out of very mean, or malicious conduct. We do not handle the non-injury fender-bender auto cases. Typically, clients can handle those by themselves. We help people who get broken bones, sustain serious cuts, scars, brain injury, and other types of permanent injuries.
At Coxwell & Associates we help the seriously injured all over the State of Mississippi. The contingency contract permits us to work for clients without straining the financial resources of the client. We are able to evaluate and accept a case on a contingency basis, ranging from 25-33% for all work through the trial courts. The type of contingency contract depends on the type of case. Some cases are more complex, more expensive, and can take years to prosecute. No one likes to hear that their case may take years in the legal system, but the truth is this is not uncommon in complex or serious cases. The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates, skilled serious personal injury attorneys in Mississippi, believe that each case has to be viewed individually and asking for a quick settlement is not necessarily in the client’s best interest. Most people fortunately will never suffer a severe or serious injury. However, if they do, it is better to have attorneys who will take their time and leave no stone unturned when it comes to obtaining a full and fair financial recovery for those injuries. Remember, when you are in the legal system, you usually only have one chance to obtain full and fair compensation. You cannot ask for a fast settlement and then come back later if you discover your injuries are more serious. Let the serious personal injury attorneys at Coxwell & Associates in Jackson, Mississippi provide you a free evaluation for your case.
