When people are injured and then desire to file a personal injury suit,
they are usually pursuing legal action because they need the money. Hospital
bills, time off work, and rehabilitation costs can be exorbitantly high
for the average person, and when their injuries resulted from someone
else’s negligence, victims of personal injuries have the right to
seek compensation from the responsible party.
Most personal injury attorneys claim they work on a contingency fee basis
because they understand the financial situation of most of their clients.
Many injured people have neither the time nor money to pursue a lengthy
legal case over the course of months to years. However, working on contingency
means the attorney pays the bulk of the legal expenses out of his or her
own pocket betting on the fact he or she will be able to win the case.
If a personal injury attorney wins a case, he or she is entitled to a percentage
of the total earnings of the lawsuit. For example, if a client is awarded
$2 million in damages, the attorney might take 10% of that amount, earning
$200,000 in compensation for his or her work.
Clients prefer this method of paying legal fees rather than paying by the
hour or paying a flat fee for legal services. Attorneys prefer this approach
because it tends to yield a higher amount and incentivizes them to care
even more about the outcome of the case.
