Compton Law is an Oklahoma injury and medical malpractice law firm that handles most cases on a contingency fee basis. Most people wonder how they can afford an attorney to help them with their injury case, auto accident case, or medical malpractice case. When people have suffered these types of losses and have significant medical bills, lost wages, and other out of pocket expenses the last thing they can afford is paying an attorney's retainer fee.
A contingency fee basis means that our clients do not pay anything up-front and do not pay us an hourly fee. In fact, the very essence of a contingency fee means that the client will actually never pay the attorney. Rather, the attorney will receive a portion or percentage of the settlement or verdict when the case is resolved. Moreover, we fund and invest in each case by fronting the necessary cost and expenses. (which could be very significant). Finally, in the event we do not recover anything for the client the client owes us nothing.
