Do I have to pay my car wreck attorney upfront?
If you or a loved one has been injured at the hands of another individual, the last thing you probably want to deal with is lawyer fees. However, what if you want an attorney, but you can’t afford it due to the damages of the car accident? Don’t fret! Typically, attorneys will make special payment agreements, including payment plans, or they will work on a contingency fee basis. Furthermore, you don’t have to pay your car wreck attorney upfront.
What are contingency fees
A contingency fee is a form of payment in which an attorney or firm agrees that the cost of legal fees will be contingent upon the case’s success. In other words, the fee depends on whether the car wreck attorney can recover money for you. It’s typically 1/3 of the settlement if no suit was filed, and if the lawsuit was filed, it’s 40% of the settlement amount.
