Birmingham Contingency Fees
It is called a contingent fee because the attorney getting paid is contingent upon you getting paid. A contingency fee arrangement is a method that allows many individuals who have been injured or seeking damages, such as those resulting from an auto accident or a semi truck accident, to obtain legal representation even if they do not have money to pay a lawyer at the outset of a case. This means Belt & Bruner, P.C. does not charge you any fee, until and unless we recover money for you.
As a part of representing individuals on a contingency fee basis, Belt & Bruner, P.C. will advance the expenses on your case. Expenses can include such things as court filing fees, the costs of obtaining records, transcripts of testimony, and the costs of expert witnesses, investigative services and travel expenses. The client is not responsible for repaying these expenses, until and unless we recover money for you. This means if no recovery is made, then it costs you nothing.
The percentage Belt & Bruner, P.C. charges in a contingency fee case can vary depending on several factors, including:
- The amount of time involved in handling the case;
- The complexity of the case;
- The probability of making a recovery;
- The expenses associated with handling the case;
- The exact details of a contingency fee contract depend upon the contract between the client and attorney.
