How Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Innovative Law Firm Serving Greater Vancouver & Areas Throughout British Columbia

Posted: May 19, 2016

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall, you may be wondering what a Vancouver personal injury lawyer can do to help your case. This is a reasonable question—after all, lawyers generally cost money, and if you can barely afford everyday costs, why would you want to add another bill to the pile?

At Stephens & Holman, our goal is to make you more financially secure, not less. To this end, we maintain policies that put you in a better position by hiring us and ensure that you won’t lose money as a result. These policies include:

  • Offering all clients a free initial consultation to determine whether they need a lawyer.
  • Paying all our clients’ court costs and legal expenses, taking our repayment at the end of the claim.
  • Working on a contingency fee basis, whereby we are paid a percentage of the settlement or judgement, so if you get nothing, we charge no fees.
  • Purchasing for every client, at no cost to the client, adverse cost insurance to eliminate potential financial exposure to an adverse cost award.

Without these policies, the process of filing a lawsuit or appealing an ICBC claim can initially be expensive, with you having to make payments for which you will be reimbursed much later. By taking care of these payments in advance, the lawyers at Stephens & Holman make it easier for you to take the time needed to secure appropriate compensation for your injury.
