Lawyers are expensive and many individuals do not believe that they can afford an attorney. However, there are many legal cases that can be handled on a contingency fee basis. At Peterson & Associates, P.C., our personal injury attorneys use contingency fee structures to ensure that individuals who do not have the money for an attorney can still have their day in court.
How Do Contingency Fees Work?
Contingency fees structures are based on an attorney and law firm using their own money to fund a lawsuit. Expenses related to a case will be paid by the attorney and the injured client does not need to worry about legal costs at that time. At the beginning of the case, the attorney will negotiate a percentage of the final recovery as compensation for handling the case. Case expenses for court filings, expert witnesses and the like will also be subtracted from the final jury award or settlement.
When attorneys take on a case on a contingency fee basis, it is because they believe in the case. They invest their time and money because they believe that the client has been injured and that the parties responsible for the injuries can and should be held accountable. Clients do not owe any money if the attorney does not win the case. This means that the attorney takes all of the risk in contingency fee arrangements.
