Thank you for choosing JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to assist you.
Many attorneys take pro bono cases because their clients cannot afford an attorney and have very limited means. Some attorneys handle cases on a sliding scale basis which means their fees are adjusted in accordance with their clients ability to pay. Some attorneys will take a case on contingency accepting a percentage of the award from the litigation. Many attorneys will not take a contingency case unless they determine strong possibility of winning. You may also be able to pay a small hourly fee along with a percentage of the award if any.
Depending on your circumstances all of the above are possibilities. Given your description finding an attorney to take the case on a contingency might be your best bet. Suing a large corporation can be costly and time consuming for any attorney. Finding an attorney to take the case pro bono might be difficult.
