Toronto Long Term Disability Lawyer

What does a Injury or Disability Lawyer Cost Me?

You’ll see in the media that many injury and disability lawyers advertise “No Win no Fee” but this doesn’t mean there is no cost to you a client.

At Impact Law we know that you expect your injury lawyer to be upfront and honest about fees, costs and what you can expect from our injury law firm.

Everyone who does work for another expects to be paid for their work. What this means to you when you are injured or have a disability claim is that we don’t charge you unless we settle your claim for you and get you a settlement.

Once the case is settled then the way that we get paid is that we take a percentage of the money that we settle your case for. You do not have to pay any upfront fees to us while we work on your case.
