Legal fees can be expensive, and we understand that this can create a barrier to seeking legal counsel. To better serve you, we have taken this barrier out of the equation. If you have been seriously harmed because of negligence, the last thing you need to do is worry about paying attorneys’ hourly fees. That’s why we take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that you don’t pay any fees unless we procure a settlement or judgment for you. In short, if we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything!
In Social Security Disability cases, our fee is set by the Social Security Administration. It’s limited to a quarter of the past-due benefits (or back pay) you’re awarded, up to a $6,000 maximum. Our fee for these cases, then, is $6,000 or 25% of your back benefits—whichever is less. If your SSD claim is denied, or if your claim involves no back-dated benefits, our fee is zero! So there is no reason not to contact us to help with your claim. When you review the complicated claims process for Social Security Disability benefits, you’ll be glad you have Whiting Law on your side, guiding you and helping you take the right steps toward an award.
