What does it mean when Personal Injury Attorneys Work on a “Contingency Fee”?
Almost all personal injury cases are handled by an attorney who will work for a contingency fee. But what does that mean? A contingency fee means there is no charge to the client whatsoever unless you win or reach a settlement. As a client, you will pay nothing out of your pocket because the fee will come out of your settlement. If you win, or you agree to settle your case, your attorney will take a portion of the verdict or settlement. Contingency fees are generally 1/3 for personal injury cases (such as car crashes, medical malpractice, etc.) and 1/5 for worker’s compensation claims.
