The Contingent Fee System

When you hire a personal injury lawyer in Georgia, your fees are paid based on the contingency fee system. That means the lawyer’s payment relies on making a recovery in your case. At H. Lehman Franklin, P.C. we are dedicated to providing clients with excellence in representation from consultation to recovery. We actively seek open and productive communication with all opposing parties in order to secure the best result for our clients. It is our aim to secure fair compensation for your injuries within the quickest timeframe possible.

The contingency fee system allows the lawyer and client to reach a pre-determined percentage of the recovery amount that is acceptable to both parties. There is no ambiguity when using the contingency fee system, as the percentage is agreed on during the consultation process between the client and his or her lawyer. The percentage in the contingency fee system is typically between 33 to 40 percent. The final amount you pay will depend on whether your case is settled without litigation or if a lawsuit is filed.

In order to ensure our clients are comfortable with and fully understand the contingency fee system, H. Lehman Franklin P.C. provides a free consultation that allows us to evaluate each case. If we are unable to win in your personal injury case, you will not have to pay attorney fees. The contingency fee system provides injured parties with a safety net, as compensation is never guaranteed.
