What is a Contingency Fee?

If you were recently injured in an accident, you can take comfort in knowing that at Preston & Salango, PLLC, we take cases on a contingency fee basis. What does this mean and how can this arrangement be beneficial to you?

A contingency fee arrangement means that you only pay a fee if we handle your case successfully. Contingency fee arrangements are only used in cases where money is being claimed; for instance, in personal injury or workers' compensation cases.

With a contingency fee arrangement, a lawyer agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery, which is the amount of money that is ultimately paid to the client. In effect, if you win the case, the attorney's fee will come out of the money awarded to you. However, if you lose, neither you nor your attorney will receive any money, and you will not be required to pay your attorney for any work that he or she did on your case.

At Preston & Salango, PLLC, we accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning, there are no out-of-pocket or upfront costs and there is no fee unless we recover for you. We understand how personal injury accidents turn peoples' lives upside-down, thus we do everything possible to help make the process as easy as possible for our clients and we start by accepting a case on a no recovery, no fee basis.
