IN A PERSONAL INJURY MATTER CAN I PAY ALL FEES AND CHARGES OUT OF THE FINAL AWARD OR SETTLEMENT?
Generally, most lawyers handling personal injury matters will act on a contingency basis. In effect this means that you will not be required to provide a retainer or money to fund yourlawsuit upfront. The law firm will pay the costs associated with prosecuting the matter as it progresses and they will wait until the completion of the matter to be reimbursed. Contingency arrangements work well as the costs associated with proceeding with your case can be substantial and if contingency was not in place, injured parties may decide not to proceed with their lawsuit for economic reasons.
Furthermore, the lawyer’s fee will only be paid upon successful completion of the file. In the event the matter proceeds and no recovery occurs contingency arrangements will mean that your lawyer will not be entitled to recover a fee for his services
