One of the primary advantages of hiring a Mesa personal injury attorney on a contingency basis is that the settlement amount is just as important to the lawyer as it is to the victim. That being said, contingency fees aren’t perfect. There are still lawyers out there who will settle a case for a low ball amount because they don’t want to take the case to court and risk losing.
However, if you hire a reputable personal injury attorney who has a good history, a solid track record of success, is willing to take the case to court if necessary, and fights hard for their clients, then a contingency fee is really quite beneficial to victims in personal injury cases. These kinds of fees ensure that the lawyer not only cares about getting the most out of a settlement to help their client, but that they are directly impacted by the settlement amount because that’s how they’re paid.
So the more money they are able to get for you, the more money they are paid at the end of a successful case. It’s really a win-win situation for both the client and the lawyer.
How Does an Attorney Get Paid From Contingency Fees?
If the personal injury attorney wins the case, then they get a percentage of the amount recovered. In most cases, the contingency fee is one-third or 33% of the total compensation awarded to the client. If the lawyer loses the case, though, then they are paid nothing.
