If Your Personal Injury Case is Not Won, Your Lawyer Cannot Recover Case Expenses.
As your personal injury law firm, we will make sure we explain how case expenses are handled in your personal injury case. Personal injury cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. A contingent fee is one that is charged when the case is won. That means that your lawyer gets paid only if he or she is successful at obtaining a favorable result in your injury case.
If your lawyer does not win your case, you are not going to responsible for paying any of the expenses that the law firm paid in your case. Losing cases expenses is a risk that your personal injury lawyer takes in order to provide you with the legal representation you deserve.
What Happens If I Fire My Lawyer, Do I pay Case Expenses later?
If you decide to fire your lawyer, that lawyer will retain a right to some fee and protection of case expenses. If you decide to hire another lawyer and the case is won, you may be responsible for paying some fee to the previous lawyer and, you will need to pay the lawyer back for any case expense he had in your case. This arrangement can be found the original contract.
Carrying the Case Expenses.
Most of the time, work or auto injury victims do not have the money available that it takes to litigate a personal injury case. There is no doubt that personal injury litigation can be very expensive. From filing a lawsuit, to hiring experts and taking depositions, the expenses in a case can quickly get up into the several thousands of dollars. For this reason, personal injury law firms carry these expenses for their clients throughout the life of the case. This practice is in place to provide peace of mind to an injured individual so that they know that their ability to win their case will not be affected by the lack of financial support.
At the conclusion of the case, if your injury lawyer is successful, the firm will recover these expenses out of settlement or trial award. At our firm, at the conclusion of the case, we provide an itemized list of all the case expenses that were made by the firm in the case.
Attorney-Client relationships are built on trust and confidence and, your lawyer should be able to answer most, if not all, of the questions you have about case expenses. Do not hesitate to ask for an explanation about how case expenses are managed if you need more information.
