How is a Personal Injury Attorney Paid?

Personal injury attorneys are paid on a contingency basis, which means that the collection of their fee is contingent or conditional on the success of their client in making a recovery. At H. Lehman Franklin, P.C., our goal is to excel in all phases of legal representation whether consulting with our clients, communicating with opposing attorneys and insurance companies, or presenting a personal injury case at trial.  That’s why we’re experienced and effective personal injury lawyers.

When an attorney and his or her client agree to a contingency fee, they agree to accept a pre-determined, fixed percentage of any recovery made by the client. This contingency fee is usually 33 to 40 percent depending on whether or not the case settles or goes to trial. Thus, the fees of H. Lehman Franklin P.C. and other personal injury attorneys are paid from the plaintiff-victim’s cash award as finally decreed by the court, whether such award is a result of trial or settlement.

First, know that at H. Lehman Franklin P.C., we offer free case evaluations. If H.
