In many personal injury cases, a lawyer will charge a contingency fee. This type of fee allows an injured party to retain an attorney to represent his or her interests, without having to pay unless there is a recovery. The fee arrangement as it pertains to the specific law firm will be outlined in the Retainer Agreement.
It is possible for your claim to be settled before filing a lawsuit, as mentioned before. However, if settlement negotiations between your attorney and the opposing side are not possible, your attorney will either file a lawsuit or request an arbitration or mediation. Throughout the course of your claim, your attorney will advise you of all possible scenarios and best options, to receive the right amount of compensation for your claim.
