Accident / Personal Injury

Attorney Scott Metz handles cases involving injuries from many different circumstances. These circumstances include automobile accidents, work injuries, and animal bites.

After an accident, don't be victimized a second time by your own attorney. Attorney Metz provides free consultation for all personal injury claims. Attorney Metz will treat you fairly by not charging you fees on the total recovery, but instead, charging you fees only on amounts recovered for you.


Many law firms, including law firms that do television advertising, charge clients fees on money that is not theirs. Often, health insurance companies and doctors must be paid from the total amount of the recovery. Furthermore, the attorney has out-of-pocket costs that must be reimbursed from the gross recovery. A common example would be as follows:

Total gross recovery

$100,000.00

Minus amounts repaid to health insurance

- $15,000.00

Minus unpaid medical bills

- $5,000.00

Minus attorney out-of-pocket costs

- $5,000.00

Net recovery to client

$75.000.00


Most law firms will charge their clients up to one-third of the gross recovery of $100,000.00 even though only $75,000.00 of the recovery is the client's. Thus, these large firms would charge a fee of $33,333.33. Fees are even charged on the out-of-pocket costs paid back to the attorney. The balance to their client is then only $41,667.67.

 

Attorney Metz will only charge you fees on the $75,000.00 that is yours. Thus, his fees would be a maximum of one-third of $75,000.00. Attorney Metz's clients would receive an extra $8,333.33 over what an injured person would receive if a law firm charging one-third of the total recovery represented them.
