Are you an accident victim who’s dealing with medical and insurance issues? Are you struggling to figure out what your next steps are – and how personal injury attorneys fit into that equation? Or maybe you’d like to know: “How do personal injury lawyers get paid?”
We understand the feelings of doubt, confusion, and uncertainty that can come along with unexpected accidents. That’s why we want to help put your mind at ease by breaking down exactly how most lawyers get paid to represent you.
A personal injury lawyer handles civil cases involving physical or psychological injury to individuals. These lawyers work to ensure that victims of accidents receive the financial compensation they are entitled to due to their injuries and losses. Victims of an accident should consider seeking legal representation because of the complexity of many personal injury cases and the emotional trauma often associated with them.
Additionally, an experienced personal injury lawyer will have a good understanding of the law surrounding your case, as well as what type of evidence may be necessary to prove liability. They will also be able to negotiate effectively on your behalf and ensure that you receive the maximum amount of potential damages available under the law. In addition to this, they will provide essential guidance and support throughout all stages of your claim process, from filing your initial paperwork through any litigation which may be required. Ultimately, having a seasoned legal professional by your side can make all the difference in obtaining justice for yourself or a loved one who has been wrongfully injured in an accident.
There are three typical ways that attorneys are paid. Some are paid on an hourly basis, meaning that they charge for the time they spend working on a case. Attorneys may also charge a flat fee, which is based on the amount of work they anticipate completing in order to resolve the client’s legal dispute or issue. While others enter into contingency fee agreements with their clients, where the attorney does not charge a fee unless they are successful in recovering money for their client.
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. At Saladino & Schaaf, we work with our clients on contingency because it allows our clients to fully pursue their case without worrying about upfront costs in an already difficult and stressful time. Attorneys who work under a contingency fee agreement will work hard to win your case because they won’t get paid unless you win.
