A contingency fee agreement is where the lawyer agrees that they will begin work on your case immediately, in exchange for the promise to pay them at the end of their case if they’re successful in recovering money for you. Reputable personal injury lawyers will use the contingency fee to help their client no matter what their client’s economic status. You will gain access to the court and the usual rule of some is that lawyers themselves will be responsible for the costs of the case and then be reimbursed for them at the end of the case. Contingency fee agreements are a great system for two different reasons: (1) It opens up the court house door to anyone with a valid claim, and (2), it really aligns the interests of the lawyer and client. The more money the client makes, the more money the lawyer makes, and so their interest in moving the case forward are united.
