One of the questions I’m often asked is, how do personal injury lawyers like myself get paid? The answer is that we work on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that my fee, the amount that I earn for my time, is contingent upon whether or not I recover for my client, and the amount that I recover for them. In general, my fee is one third of whatever I recover for my clients. If I don’t get anything for you, you don’t owe me any money for the time that I spent on your case. The more I get for you, the more I get for myself.
As you can see, our interests are firmly aligned. My interest is to get my clients as much money as I can possibly get them. And frankly, in my opinion, if someone is injured, they deserve as much money as I can possibly get them because the one thing that you can’t ever get back is your health.
