Today, we’re going to talk about what a contingency fee is and why it’s important to have that type of structure in a personal injury case. My name is Adam Hepburn and I am a personal injury attorney and one of the partners here at HHJ Trial Attorneys. 


One of the most characteristic types of cases that we deal with is a personal injury case and in those cases we normally have what’s called a contingency fee structure. What that means is that your personal injury attorney in San Diego does not get paid unless and until they’re able to resolve the case through a settlement or obtain a verdict at a jury trial or a trial. 


Now the reason why that’s important is because obtaining legal services is very expensive and very few people would have the resources to hire a team of personal injury lawyers to pursue their claim unless those attorneys were willing to do so on a contingency fee structure right now. That attorney will not only represent you and provide their services for a contingency fee, but they will also front all the costs that are associated with litigating a case. Those costs can be anything from hiring experts, accident reconstruction, doctors, or any other sort of ancillary services that come with litigation. 

If you have any questions about the contingency fee structure and how it works, feel free to reach out to us any time.
