Many people who suffer injuries due to another’s negligence are reluctant to pursue a personal injury case because they worry about the attorney’s fees.
What Does Contingency Fee Mean?
The mandate of a personal injury lawyer is to prove that the individual that caused your injuries was negligent and should be held liable for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you hire an attorney on a contingency fee basis, you can feel confident that you will have to pay for the attorney only if and when they win financial damages on your behalf—a setup that gives you top notch legal representation and also incentivizes the law firm to maximize your payout.
Payment for the attorney is contingent on the amount of money awarded through the personal injury lawsuit. You will not have to pay a penny to your attorney if you don’t recover any damages in the lawsuit.
