Forrest Jackson Personal Injury


  • Provides legal access to people who normally can't afford an attorney: Let's face it, most individuals don't have a large enough nest egg to pay for skilled representation, especially if they have been unable to work due to a disability. A contingency arrangement provides a means for any individual to obtain the high quality legal counsel they deserve without the worry of how they will be able to pay for it.

  • It's efficient: Time is money, especially for individuals who are suffering the economic hardship of a disability and their attorneys. Since contingency attorneys do not get paid unless a successful outcome is reached, they are strongly motivated to keep expenses low, resolve the matter swiftly, and achieve as much financial benefits as possible.

  • Your attorney shares the risk with you: If your case is unsuccessful, your lawyer does not get paid. Period. This provides a huge incentive for your attorney to work diligently to achieve the best results possible.

  • No padded hours or exorbitant rates: Unfortunately, some attorneys are not above padding the hours they bill or charging exceedingly exorbitant hourly rates, leaving their clients with an enormous financial obligation for which they were unprepared. With a contingency arrangement, you pay a predetermined percentage of your monetary recovery. You can rest easy knowing ahead of time approximately what your final bill will be.

  • Higher chance of success with larger recoveries: Statistics show that SSDI claimants who retain the services of a skilled Social Security Disability lawyer have a higher chance of a successful outcome. Additionally, your SSDI attorney can help fight for benefits you may not have been aware of, such as back pay, providing you with an opportunity to achieve a larger recovery had you gone through the process alone.
