What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is a method of payment an Atlanta personal injury attorney after the lawsuit comes to a close. An individual can hire a personal injury lawyer on a contingency fee, and he or she will work on the individual’s behalf to bring the lawsuit to fruition with no upfront cost.
Even more than not paying for the work, the individual can also expect the lawyer to advance the money for any costs associated with pursuing the case. When the case is successfully settled or the verdict rendered, certain fees are then paid to the lawyer as well as a certain percentage of the gross settlement.
There is a measure of risk to an attorney’s office when they take a case on contingency because if the case isn’t found on the plaintiff’s side, they are unable to collect payment.
