I can’t afford a lawyer – what should I do? by Patricia Santucci

We know that injured people often cannot afford to pay a lawyer’s retainer and hourly rates, especially in a case where they are not working. Here at Santucci Personal Injury Law, we work on contingency basis, meaning that the lawyer will be paid his/her fees only when your claim is successfully resolved. If you do not recover anything, we do not charge any fees the lawyer’s or staff member’s time. We also offer an initial free consultation to talk about your LTD case. (50)
