Legal Fees for Our Personal Injury Services
Your initial consultation with Verkhovets Law is free. After that, you are not obligated to sign a Retainer Agreement and hire us. We want to be clear about our fees.
In personal injury law cases, we work primarily on contingency. This means we take a percentage of the settlement when we settle the case. The amount of fees will vary depending on the severity of your injuries and the complexity of your case. We may be able to discount our fees for more serious cases.
Smaller cases, however, are not eligible for discounts because they need quite a bit of work, as well as disbursements (our out-of-pockets costs), and frequently do not generate fees commensurate with the work necessary.
You can pay for a lawyer in a personal injury case by getting into a contingency agreement. In a Contingency Fee Arrangement, the fee is usually contingent on the outcome.
After accepting an offer of settlement for a personal injury claim, you will usually receive your compensation cheque for your injuries within two to four weeks from the date of settlement.
As per Law Society of Ontario (LSO) requirements, our contingency fees can vary based on the severity of your injuries, Verkhovets Law will not charge more than 35% plus HST and disbursements.*
* Unless your case goes to trial. If this happens, Verkhovets Law will ask for costs to be awarded as well, as regulated by the Law Society of Ontario (LSO).
We get paid when you get paid.
