Have you ever noticed that personal injury attorneys always advertise that they offer free consultations? Yet other attorneys (estate planners, family law, criminal defense) often charge hundreds of dollars per hour. The reason is contingency fees.
Contingency Fees Explained
What is a contingency fee? A contingency fee means an attorney agrees to represent you in exchange for a portion of your settlement.
A contingency fee model causes many personal injury attorneys to carefully consider the cases they will take. If an attorney doesn’t think they can win the case, they probably won’t take it. Likewise, an attorney may refuse the case because they don’t think the settlement (or their portion of it) will be worth their time.
Many victims of minor accidents and especially medical malpractice never receive legal representation or justice because attorneys won’t take their case.
