When someone gets injured in an accident, it is strongly advised that they seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. However, there is a misconception that lawyers are expensive and some injured victims believe that they do not have the money to afford a lawyer.
The truth about how a personal injury lawyer is paid for providing legal services is often through a contingency fee. A contingency fee is based on the settlement that an injured victim receives through the claim that they file. This means that if you receive a settlement for your case, your lawyer’s payment is based on that settlement. The rate of a contingency fee is generally 1/3 of the settlement.
Benefits of Contingency Fees
The arrangement of a contingency fee benefits both the victim and the lawyer. Contingency fees ensure that a client does not have to pay more than they can afford, and it also works to their benefit because the lawyer will want to work hard to make the settlement amount greater since their pay is based on the settlement.
Our law office operates on contingency fees and we are able to give our clients the legal representation that they deserve by doing so. Our lawyers tirelessly work on behalf of our clients to ensure that they receive the compensation that is deserved for the injuries that they have sustained. The higher the settlement amount is that our lawyers help clients to receive, the more compensation both the client and the lawyer will get as a result.
