Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorneys on a Contingency Basis
Cases involving a car accident, medical malpractice, premises liability, product liability, brain injury, wrongful death, or any other personal injury claim typically result in serious injuries and ever-increasing medical bills. In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the person who caused the accident can ultimately be liable to pay full and fair compensation to injured victims. That is the purpose of the civil justice system for personal injury cases.
But how do injured victims get the compensation they deserve? Negotiating with insurance adjusters to obtain a full and fair settlement can be frustrating and difficult. Insurance companies will try to lowball people, delay their claims, and frustrate them so that they either abandon a personal injury claim or simply accept less money out of frustration.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help maximize your recovery for an accident case. But can you afford to get an attorney? When victims are injured, they often must miss work. They lose wages, which makes it harder to support themselves and their families. Medical bills pile up. It can be stressful and upsetting to incur more and more medical debt. The last thing that an injured victim needs are to pay additional money for a lawyer.
This is why we offer our clients a contingent fee. A contingent fee is a promise. Our clients do not have to pay us a retainer. They do not pay us an hourly rate as the case moves forward. Our clients do not pay us anything unless we recover money in the case. If we do, then we get paid a percentage of the recovery once the case is over.

We understand how debilitating injuries can be, whether they are from a complex accident or a straightforward fender bender. The effect injuries have on victims and their families can be significant. That is why we strive to ensure the transparency of our attorney-client relationships via our contingency fees. We know how our record of success speaks for itself, and that our contingency basis allows our clients to not worry about any legal fees unless we successfully recover a jury verdict, arbitration award, or settlement offer from a defendant and their insurance company.

Let us point you or your loved one in the right direction towards full and fair compensation, all without having to pay any attorney fee until and unless we recover money for you.
Your Right to a Full and Fair Compensation
When someone else’s negligence is the cause of a car accident or any incident causing injuries, you may have the legal right to be compensated for the injuries and damages the result. Some common damages that may be recovered to maximize compensation for accident claims include the following:
- Medical bills
- Past, present and future medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Property damage
- Non-economic damages (pain and suffering/psychological damages)
- Loss of quality of life
- Any necessary home renovation expenses to accommodate an injury
- Any legal services needed to assist in obtaining the negotiated amount of compensation
No matter what type of personal injury you or your loved one have suffered, our legal services are primarily based upon the concept of formulating, calculating and obtaining a settlement offer with insurance adjusters and defendants that will ultimately provide the appropriate amount of compensation to help our clients and their families to cope with their damages.
What’s a Contingent Fee?
A contingent fee means that we only get paid if we recover money in your case. Our fee is contingent on, or depends on, getting money for you. If we do not get a recovery in your case then you owe us nothing and we receive no fee.
Additionally, our firm also fronts the costs of litigation. Bringing a lawsuit costs money. That includes fees charged by the Court to file a lawsuit, charges from doctors and hospitals to obtain copies of clients’ medical records, fees charged by doctors and other experts to testify in the case, among other necessary expenses. Our injured clients are not expected to pay these costs upfront. Instead, our firm will front all of the costs of litigation. We are only reimbursed for those costs if and when we recover money in your case.
Our team will always be with you every step of the way, from your free initial consultation all the way through the end of the case. During that entire time, you will not pay us a dime until and unless we recover money for you based upon our contingent fee.
So when it comes down to it, we won’t get paid unless you do. This includes not just attorney fees but court costs and other expenses associated with injury claims. At the personal injury firm of Mattiacci Law, LLC, we strive to obtain the best possible recovery for our clients. But having a contingent fee gives our clients the peace of mind that they will never have to pay money out of pocket and that we will only be paid if we recover money in your case.
Providing Access to a Top Notch Pennsylvania Law Firm
Contingency fees allow our clients to not have to worry about paying for a lawyer when they’re injured. Having access to our law firm’s skilled accident lawyers with many years of experience does not require you to pay a penny out of your own pocket.
In many areas of law, attorneys charge by the hour. Experience and skill cost money. Hiring an experienced lawyer may be beyond the ability of many injured victims if they had to pay that lawyer by the hour. By offering a contingent fee, we can provide access to justice to everyone, regardless of their economic resources or the size of their bank account.
It is also important to understand that working on a contingent fee basis puts the risks in our personal injury attorneys’ hands, which has the added benefit of pushing our team to get the best possible recovery in your case. After all, the more money we recover for our clients the more our firm stands to earn under a contingent fee. But the well-being of our clients is the most important thing.
A contingent fee is also why personal injury lawyers tend to be careful or selective in terms of the injury claims they’ll accept. When a lawyer is going to spend extensive time and money on a case, they want to make sure that investment will pay off for both the client and the law firm. This helps ensure that legitimate cases are brought into litigation.
