[GRAPHIC: Ask Super Lawyers, What does no recovery no fee mean in Pennsylvania? Attorney Douglas J. Olcott responds.]

Douglas J. Olcott: No recovery, no fee means that there's no risk to the injured party. When we take on a case, we're going to advance the cost so that we can get the medical records that are necessary, hire the investigators that may be necessary, go out and retain whatever experts may be appropriate given the facts of a case. In the event that we're unsuccessful in either getting a voluntary settlement to compensate the victim for somebody else's negligent act or if that's one of the cases that has to proceed to trial, in the event a jury does not find liability, the client doesn't bear that expense. However, in the event that we are successful in recovering money, either by way of a voluntary settlement or by way of a jury verdict, at that point in time, out of any proceeds, the client would pay back the expenses that we've advanced.
