Legal Services on Contingency Basis

Do you know that all over the United States, most especially in California, a lot of law firms have been offering their legal services on a contingency basis when it comes to personal injury cases? But when we say contingency basis, what exactly does it mean?

Rendering legal services on a contingency basis means that the client will not initially pay any amount of money as attorney’s fees to the lawyer. The lawyer will not charge any acceptance fee, nor any retainer’s fee or any appearance fees upon the client. In this kind of arrangement, the lawyer and the client agree that there will only be payment of attorney’s fees if and when and only in the event that the client’s personal injury lawsuit has been successfully litigated by the lawyer for and in behalf of the client. In short, the lawyer will only be paid if the client’s personal injury case has been won by him. If not, or if the case was unsuccessful, the lawyer will not get anything from the client as attorney’s fees.

At present, the contingency arrangement between a lawyer and a client is becoming more popular. This gives the client the opportunity to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent person who caused his or her personal injuries even without spending any amount of money just for the payment of attorney’s fees. This will also help clients to consider filing the personal injury case right away without hesitation or hindrance because of lack of money to finance his or her personal injury lawsuit.

So what are you waiting for? Now that you know that there are lots of lawyers offering legal services on a contingency basis, you should already have the courage of pursuing your personal injury lawsuit. There’s no need to hold back and be discouraged. Go and get ready to file your personal injury claim with the help of a lawyer who agrees to render legal services on a contingency basis.
