What it costs
The amount of money you can receive for the class action has been decided by the courts.
We will ask you for a retainer of $500 to get started. We are not a law firm and we don’t have deep pockets. The deposit gives us the ability to offer our services at a discounted rate. It also establishes your commitment to work together with us to ensure that your forms are completed accurately and on time. The retainer can be paid by Visa, Mastercard or cheque and the funds will be returned to you when you receive your award.
At the Optio Group, we charge 15% (or a minimum of $1000.00) of your successful award plus taxes and disbursements to complete your Claim Package. Because we only get paid if you get paid, we are motivated to ensure that your claim is strong and undisputable.
A law firm can charge as much as 35% of your award, plus taxes and disbursements to submit your Claim Package. On a $100,000 reward, you will keep as much as $20,000 more of your money in your own pocket.
Our cost of doing business is much lower than it is for a law firm. Our staff is primarily nurses, and we use technology to keep our costs, and your fees, as low as we reasonably can.
