I don’t have much money. How can I hire an attorney?
The true advantage of contingency fee agreements is being able to retain
the services of a professional personal injury attorney without having
to reach into your own pocket or bank account. No matter how much money
you have right now, you can afford a lawyer who works for contingency fees.
Will I have to pay if my case is unsuccessful?
A lawyer who works for contingency fees will only charge for their services
if the case is a success. This means you earn a settlement through a verdict
or out of court agreement.
How exactly is a contingency fee attorney paid?
Assuming that your case resolves successfully in your favor, your legal
counsel will be paid through a percentage of whatever winnings you achieve.
This means you never risk having to pay them more than you can afford.
What is the percentage rate of a typical contingency fee?
Good question, tricky answer. Contingency fees are generally established
on a case-by-case basis. In most cases, the more complex your case and
the longer it will take to complete, the higher the contingency fee percentage.
If we had to ballpark a number, it could be said that the average contingency
fee agreement pays 25% to 40% of the winnings back to the attorney.
Do contingency fees motivate attorneys?
At Duck Law Firm, LLC, we are always motivated to win each case our clients
bring our way. We genuinely want to see you comfortably recovering. But
contingency fees to add an extra bump of motivation, especially when pursuing
maximum compensation. The more money we can get you, the more we get paid.
It’s a win-win!
What other forms of attorney fees are there?
Some attorneys charge a flat-fee upfront. This is problematic because
you could pay them $15,000 only for them to win you half that amount,
or nothing at all. Other lawyers will charge by the hour. This can be
somewhat misleading as attorneys count every moment as part of your hourly
fees, even when they spent 30 minutes trying to fix a paper jam in their printer.
