What fee will I have to pay the Sweeney Law Firm to handle my case?

We handle all cases on a contingent fee basis. That means that you pay us nothing until we win or settle your case. When we do, we charge you a "flat fee" of one-third (33%) of the award. Many law firms require personal injury clients to pay more than one-third (33%) of the award if your case goes to trial or the case proceeds to an appeal. You will pay the Sweeney Law Firm only one-third (33%) of the award regardless of whether your case is tried or proceeds to an appeal. There may be certain costs and expenses associated with proving your case. In most cases, it will be necessary to pay your medical providers for sending copies of your medical records. We may ask your doctor for a report to document the prognosis for your injuries. Most doctors charge a small fee for reports. If a lawsuit is filed, it may become necessary to hire an "expert witness" to prove fault or the permanency of your injuries. Doctors and other expert witnesses charge for the time they spend working on your case. The Sweeney Law firm advances (interest free) all costs and expenses that are necessary to prove your case. We are reimbursed for the expenses we advance at the end of the case.
