If you have ever spoken or worked with an attorney, you may have heard the term “contingency fee agreement.” This is a method of payment that some lawyers use when representing clients. At Christensen & Hymas, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This may sound complicated, but it’s actually quite simple, and makes a personal injury case far less financially stressful for you. This post breaks down how exactly a contingency fee agreement works.
How a Contingency Fee Agreement Works
Essentially, a contingency fee agreement means that you will not pay us for legal services until after we win your case. This type of arrangement favors the client, because you only pay if your case is successful! Many lawyers charge hourly fees, which may result in clients paying huge amounts for representation that proves unsuccessful.
We believe that you should only have to pay for our services if they yield positive results for you. That is why we use a contingency fee agreement. We know that after a serious accident, the thought of paying for an attorney can seem overwhelming and even impossible. But our motto is “Service with integrity and compassion when you’ve been injured,” and affordability is a big part of that!
