We are proud of our contributions to the lives of our clients and their
families. What an opportunity we have to make a difference in others’ lives
each and every day. Not only do we help mend and rebuild our clients’
lives - to the extent that fair and adequate compensation can do so - but
also, streets, highways, workplaces, homes and hospitals are safer because
of our efforts.
Our society is one of law and order. Justice requires that innocent people
who have been terribly wronged by another’s carelessness or indifference
are entitled to fair, and in some cases substantial, compensation. Those
individuals, companies, institutions or government agencies admitting or
being found liable are held accountable. In most cases, the wrongdoer will
then reform its conduct to avoid future liability.
Law Offices of Barry W. Vermeeren’s record of success helps our
clients in two ways: first, we know we can take on large insurance
companies and prevail in court; second, we are able to negotiate fair and

Personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. That means that
the costs of preparing a case (including filing fees, investigation, expert
witnesses, attorney fees, etc.) are not collected until the case is
completed. And then, only if we win the case. If there is no recovery we
absorb all expenses – including attorney fees.
Attorney fees are calculated as a percentage of the final award, normally
one-third of the total.
By accepting the up-front financial burden that comes with the contingency
fee arrangement, we can help people who otherwise would not have the
resources necessary to take on big corporations, insurance companies and
their law firms.
