You’ve probably heard lawyer advertisements promising you that you won’t owe your attorney anything if she can’t win your case. Have you ever wondered exactly what that means?
Can I Afford to Hire an Injury Attorney?
Lawyers who handle personal injury claims typically do so on a contingency fee basis. That means that the attorney’s fee is contingent on whether or not the attorney recovers a sum of money for her client. If the attorney is not able to obtain a settlement or verdict for her client, then the cost to the client for hiring that lawyer would be free. An attorney who works on a contingency-fee basis only gets paid if the attorney is able to obtain a recovery for her client.
If the attorney is able to obtain a recovery for her client, then she would receive an attorney’s fee, which would be a percentage of the amount of money the attorney is able to obtain for her client.
Who Pays for the Costs in My Personal Injury Matter?
When an attorney handles a personal injury matter, she not only invests her time into her client’s case, but she will also usually agree to invest her own financial resources into the case by agreeing to pay for the costs that are associated with bringing a claim against the at-fault party. It will depend on your agreement with your lawyer, but, if your attorney is willing to pay the costs involved in your case up front, then you will only be required to reimburse the attorney for those costs if your attorney can obtain a recovery in your case. If the attorney is not able to obtain a recovery, you typically will not owe the attorney anything for the attorney’s time or the attorney’s expenses.
