How Are Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorneys Typically Paid?
In the majority of personal injury cases across Wisconsin your attorney is paid by keeping what is known as a contingency fee. This means that in most cases you will not be responsible for paying a fee to the attorney unless he or she wins your case. You may still be responsible with associated expenses for the attorney preparing your case such as copier fees in order to obtain your medical records, as an example.
The percentage of your final fee (if you should win the case) that will ultimately be paid to the attorney is a discussion for you and your Milwaukee personal injury attorney. For your protection, the law requires that you have a written contract between you and your attorney that specifies the fee this individual will collect so that there is no confusion or misunderstanding down the line about this.
Knowing upfront about the contingency fee can give you a great deal of peace of mind, particularly if your financial resources are strapped in the aftermath of an accident. Many individuals who have been seriously injured in a Wisconsin car accident may be struggling to pay their own medical bills and experiencing the burden of lost wages.
A contingency fee agreement helps remove the stress of having to pay an attorney in the short term and gives you peace of mind that you will not be hit with a huge bill from a law firm in the event that the case is unsuccessful.
