What Is a Contingency Fee?

Hundred dollar bills

You’ve been injured due to the negligence of another person, you’ve received medical attention, and found out that your injury was serious. It now requires additional treatment, time away from work, and you’re left unsure as to what to do next. You know that you may have a personal injury claim, due to the other party’s negligence, however, you fear you will be unable to pay for an attorney, as your medical bills keep piling on.

This exact scenario is why many attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.

Contingency Fees

A contingency fee is a set amount of money that the client agrees to pay the attorney, following a favorable outcome for their case. Contingency fees allow those who don’t have the funds to afford an attorney, hire one without any payment upfront. Typically, contingency fees are based on a set percentage (33% in most cases) that the attorney will take from the final settlement.

Contingency fees are a great tool that allows many injured victims to pursue compensation for their damages in situations that would have otherwise been impossible. Another benefit of hiring a contingency based attorney is that you only have to pay if you win! This gives you added security in your decision to hire an experienced Sacramento personal injury attorney, along with ensuring the attorney provides the best level of service to ensure they are paid for their time.
