A contingency fee is an attorney fee that you will only pay if we recover compensation on your behalf either through settling your case or winning the case at trial. In other words, it is "no win, no fee".
The fee is calculated as a percentage of the gross recovery. Our standard Contingency Fee in medical malpractice case is 40% and in other personal injury cases it is 33%.
By way of example, if we recover $100,000 on your behalf either through settlement or trial, our fee will be $40,000 in a medical negligence case and $33,333 in a personal injury case. If however we do not recover any money for you, you will not owe us a fee for the work we have done on your behalf. The only money you will owe us in that situation is reimbursement of the costs of the case.
