Contingent Fee Representation

When you have been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligence, a big question you may have is, Can I Afford An Attorney? This is a reasonable concern, since attorneys are generally paid quite well for the amount of education, training and certification they undergo in order to practice law. To help potential clients worried about the cost of legal representation, some attorneys will take on cases on a Contingent Fee Representation basis. In brief, Contingent Fee Representation means that the attorney works on the client's behalf without any fees, getting paid only if the client's case is awarded. In some cases, the attorney may also cover basic costs incurred throughout your case. Typical Contingent Fee Representation pays the attorney one-third of the client's awarded compensation.
