Attorney And Lawyers Payment?
I Know I Need An Attorney And Lawyer If I Sue A Company But If I Cant Pay The Attorney And Lawyer Would I Have To Pay Contingency
As a general rule, contingency lawyers are used with personal injury. Which means, if you win, both you and lawyer gets paid a settlement and if you lose, you owe nothing.
Most of the time, when you hire a lawyer, they will have you on retainer, meaning they will ask that you pay a certain amount based on the time they expect they will use in this lawsuit. This means, every time they talk on the telephone with you or the other party, write papers or other legal briefs, it gets charged against the retainer based on their hourly rate. With a retainer, they "may" allow you to make a down payment towards the retainer, or ask for all of it up front.
Most lawyers will give you 1 free consultation for your legal rights. At that time, the lawyer should be able to determine if your case is winnable, or if not, suggest you move on.
You don't state what you are suing a company for and with any company most of them either have lawyers employed at that company or hire out, so it can be costly in a lawsuit.
Only a real lawyer can tell you your options.

Take the Law School Admissions Test, or LSAT. The LSAT is given four times per year at hundreds of locations across North America. The test is divided into five 35-minute sessions, with each designed to test your aptitude for practicing law. The LSAT exam is used as a benchmark by law schools that are members of the LSAC, by most law schools in Canada and by a number of law schools that have not yet been approved by the ABA. Find out when and where the test will be given by following the LSAT link in the Resources section.
Apply to law school. Be prepared to apply to several schools before you are accepted to one. The legal profession is always in demand, and class sizes are limited. Make sure the school you ultimately select is accredited by the American Bar Association. More information about accredited schools can be found on the ABA website, which is listed in the Resources section.
Complete law school. After selecting a school, you will need to complete 3 years of study. At the end of this period, you will have a law degree. In most cases, you still cannot work as an attorney at this stage, but you can gain experience by working as a paralegal in a criminal lawyer's office while you wait to take the bar exam.
Pass the state bar exam. Each state has its own exam. You will need to pass this exam in the state(s) where you intend to practice law. The bar exam is often described as being the hardest test you will ever take, and many people have to take the exam several times before they receive a passing grade. After passing this exam, you will receive a license to practice law, and can begin to practice criminal law in that state.

Your undergrad degree doesn't matter whatsoever, but I would advise you to take something that will hone your analytic and writing skills.
Then you take the LSAT and apply to law schools.
Then you pass the bar and work at a firm that does litigation. If you are talented and work hard, you can have a good career. Top third of the graduates are still being hired out of law schools.
Personal Injury Compensation.......?
What Must I Prove To Win A Personal Injury Compensation?
This depends on the laws in your state, and the type of claim you are presenting. I assume you are asking the question in the context of a liability claim. If this pertains to auto liability, it would be important to apply whatever the laws are in your state. For example, if you live in a No-Fault state, your right to bring an injury claim is limited.
Insurance policies make a distinction between “personal injury” and “bodily injury.” They are not the same. A bodily injury pertains to a physical injury to your body. A personal injury pertains to things like false arrest, slander, etc. (Plaintiff attorneys frequently use the term “personal injury” to represent both.)
With respect to your injury claim, you must prove (1.) liability, and (2.) damages.
To prove you sustained an injury, you will need documentation of your injury from your medical provider or doctor. And it helps if you have objective findings as well within the medical records, which means your injury is more than just you making subjective complaints about pain.
