How does a personal injury lawyer get paid?

Return to FAQ Videos

Transcript:

A personal injury lawyer has a very unique type of contract. It’s called a contingency fee contract. It is not one in which the injured person pays the lawyer by the hour or even places a retainer. The personal injury lawyer takes a risk on the client that he takes on in these instances because the lawyer puts up the money to prosecute the case on behalf of the injured client and risk being paid at the end of the case. That’s called contingency.

At the end of the case upon settlement or upon jury verdict, that lawyer and only then does that lawyer get paid … Gets paid a fee that’s set by the supreme court and the Florida bar and gets reimbursed the cost that had been expended on behalf of that client.
