How much do you owe your lawyer if you lose your injury case?

On Behalf of | Dec 6, 2020 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Being involved in an accident is scary. On top of the trauma and physical pain, you may have bills piling up. When the accident isn’t your fault, it’s only fair for the negligent party to pay.

But what if they don’t? Maybe the other party is denying any liability for your injuries or the insurance company is just stonewalling you. You need help, but you’re worried about how you can afford a big legal bill on top of your other expenses.

You can relax. Most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency fee basis.

What’s a contingency fee?

For many legal services, you have to pay in advance with a substantial  retainer and keep up with the bills as you go along. Personal injury claims, however, are usually different. Most use a system where the attorney agrees to charge a fee only when they’re successful in getting their client compensation. The fee is usually calculated as a percentage of the award or settlement.

Contingency fees make it possible for everyone in this country — no matter their income or legal status — to pursue justice when they’re the victim of negligence. That means you don’t have to be afraid to seek legal assistance to assert your rights.
