What is a Contingency Fee?
- Under a contingency fee agreement, you pay no up-front fees or hourly rates for legal services. Your attorney agrees to accept a percentage of your settlement or court award. If you do not obtain compensation, your attorney does not get paid. Contingency fee agreements are common in personal injury lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and other cases that could end with a lump sum payment. https://www.cchmlawyers.com/practice-areas/personal-injury/
