Do you Work on a Contingency Basis?

Unlike in many other areas of law, attorneys working in personal injury litigation usually accept payment on a contingency basis, rather than charging an hourly rate. If you win and receive compensation, therefore, your personal injury lawyers will get a percentage of the payout. The contingency approach protects you from financial risk – if the lawyers don’t win the case, you owe them nothing. During your initial consultation with your lawyers, establish the percentage of the payout they will receive and note any other legal fees for which you might be responsible.
