CONTINGENCY FEE

CONTINGENCY FEE:

A lawyer’s fee for services rendered in most personal injury cases. It is a fee, which the attorney is entitled to receive only if the client obtains an award of damages for his or her injury as a result of settlement, trial or appeal. When the client receives the award, the attorney is entitled to a percentage of the total amount obtained. The client is not charged a fee for the attorney’s time or efforts, if there is no recovery. A contingency fee arrangement has the benefit of providing access to the court for injured people who otherwise could not afford to pay the attorney’s fees. It also provides a strong financial incentive for the lawyer to work diligently to obtain an award for the client.
