I have submitted a claim for damages because I'm an oil rig worker who has been unemployed since the BP oil spill. When should I expect to get paid?
Everyone would like to know when they will get paid, and we wish we could be specific and say that on 5 p.m. Friday you'll receive a check. But litigation doesn’t follow such a precise timeline. When a client will receive payment depends on the complexity of the individual claim and how long it takes to resolve. Some claims that are straightforward may be settled in a matter of months, while others take longer.
Arnold & Itkin LLP doesn’t get paid unless we obtain a recovery on your behalf. Sharing the financial risk of a lawsuit is part of the way the attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP show our commitment to our clients’ cases. We have an incentive to work diligently to prepare your case and obtain a recovery that is satisfactory to you. When we do obtain a recovery, you get paid and we get paid a percentage of the recovery that we have agreed upon in advance. An experienced oil spill accident attorney at Arnold & Itkin LLP will evaluate your claim free of charge and advise you on your best legal options.
