How do personal injury lawyers get paid?

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.
