What is a Contingency Fee?
A contingency fee is a legal fee based upon a contingent event. When HURT in an accident, the contingent event is whether the lawyer gets money for you or not. If your attorney successfully obtains money for you, the contingency is met and the legal fee becomes due. If your attorney is not successful and does not get money for you, the contingency is not reached and you will not be charged.
