David Proffitt and Ron Cox founded their law firm with the goal of providing the best representation possible to victims of serious injury and other wrongdoing. Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to take on sophisticated, complex cases. Our diverse experience includes litigation of serious injury cases, class actions, prescription drug cases, and business disputes. We emphasize the representation of clients injured due to trucking and other vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and on-the-job injuries.
Our guiding principle is to treat clients the way we would want to be treated. Our attorneys will treat you with respect, explain your legal rights, and seek compensation for all damages allowed under the law. In injury cases, these damages often include recovery for medical expenses, lost wages, lost potential income, permanent injury or disability, pain and suffering, and the inability to enjoy life as you could before the injury. In cases involving wrongful death, these damages can include the lost financial support of the victim and the grief and sorrow suffered by the family members left behind.
Our attorneys will seek a prompt, fair settlement of your claim or pursue your rights vigorously in court if litigation is necessary. Whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom, we strive to help clients obtain the best possible outcome in their case.
When the negligence of another seriously hurts you or a family member, you may be wondering whether you can afford qualified Columbia injury attorneys to represent your interests. If you need legal assistance after a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall but are unsure if can pay the legal fees, Proffitt & Cox, LLP offers victims of personal injuries the ability to afford legal representation through contingency fee agreements.
A contingency fee is a percentage fee arrangement under which our attorney’s fees are based on a percentage of any money that we obtain for you through settlement or trial of your case. No upfront money for attorney’s fees is required in order to get our South Carolina injury attorneys working on your case. If for some reason, your injury case does not result in any compensation to you, you will not owe our attorneys any fees for the time spent working on your case.
There can be various out-of-pocket expenses involved with investigating and litigating your case. Our firm has the resources to advance the costs of litigation so that you often will not need any money up front to have us investigate and pursue your case. These types of litigation costs will be subtracted from the recovery at the successful conclusion of your claim or case.
These costs can include:
When the firm has advanced the expenses for investigating and pursuing your case handled on a contingency basis, attorney’s fees are calculated based upon the gross recovery and the expenses advanced by the firm are deducted from the client’s net recovery at the time of disbursement of any proceeds received for the claim.
If you retain Proffitt & Cox, LLP to handle your case you will receive a written fee agreement at the beginning of the case which will clearly spell out how our fees are calculated and other important details of the attorney-client relationship.
We review every detail of our attorney fee and cost agreement with our prospective clients in order to make sure that you understand our agreement and are comfortable in knowing how fees and expenses will be handled when the case is concluded.
We understand and care that when an injury occurs people are concerned about medical expenses, lost income, and compensation for their pain and suffering and other damages. We can put our experience to work immediately toward helping victims of careless or wrongful conduct obtain prompt and appropriate compensation.
We offer free initial consultations for all injury cases. We handle injury cases on a contingency fee basis which means that our fees are a percentage of what we recover for you. You will not owe us any attorney’s fees in such cases unless we are successful in obtaining compensation on your behalf.
