1. What can I do if I cannot afford to pay a brain injury lawyer?
Our firm will handle your brain injury action without any payment of attorney’s fees from our clients. We handle matters with a contingency fee arrangement which means that our firm will receive a percentage of the recovery we are able to obtain on behalf of our clients.

The New York Appellate Division has approved a 33 and 1/3rd percentage contingent compensation for personal injury matters.
