If you are hurt at work in a plant accident, you have plenty of things to worry about. And among those worries may be a concern about whether or not you can afford a Houston injury attorney to represent you in your claim against your employer who does not participate in the workers’ compensation system. After all, everyone knows that hiring an attorney is expensive, right? You may put off calling a lawyer just to avoid hearing the bad news.
But we have good news.
You do not need to spend any money upfront in order to hire a Houston injury attorney.
When it comes to injury cases involving non-subscriber employers, you will not pay any out-of-pocket costs or hourly fees. Instead, a percentage of the agreed-upon settlement or the amount awarded in court goes to cover your lawyer’s fees. So you can get a lawyer working on your behalf without having to worry about the initial costs.
The Risk of No Representation
Even knowing that you won’t have any upfront costs, you might be tempted to try to negotiate with your employer and their insurance company on your own.
We can say unequivocally that doing so is a bad idea.
Your employer and their insurance company are both going to be motivated to pay out as little as possible. They may try to get you to agree to a quick settlement to make the case going away. This fast offer will almost certainly be unfairly low.
To avoid falling victim to a scheme that might leave you covering your own ongoing medical expenses or suffering other losses, you need to have an experienced Houston injury attorney by your side.
