How Is A PI Attorney Paid?

How is a personal injury attorney paid?

I work on what’s called a contingency, which means I only get paid if I win. I get a percentage of whatever we’re able to recover for the injured person.

If we’re not able to recover anything, there is no fee. There is no cost whatsoever.

I always tell people, say, for instance, we took your case through a jury trial, and the jury said that you’re not entitled to any compensation — you don’t owe me anything. There is no bill, there’s no cost. It’s as simple as that.

My fee is simply just a percentage of anything that we’re able to win — and only if we win.

I’m taking all the risk off of their plate. I’m the one that’s dealing with the insurance company. I’m the one that’s taking on all the risk if we have to go to court or anything else, so they don’t have to worry about it. They can deal with doctors and focus on their health and get better.
