How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Bill for Their Services?

There are different approaches that personal injury lawyers use to bill for their services. It is important to understand the different approaches and choose which suits you best. 

Hourly fee 

Some personal injury lawyers bill their clients on an hourly fee basis. This means that you will be charged for the hours of work that your injury lawyer spends on your case. Lawyers that use this approach for billing will require you to pay a retainer fee. They will deduct their expenses from the retainer fee. 

Contingency fee 

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay any fees unless the lawyer recovers compensation in your case. The lawyer’s fee will be calculated as a percentage of the compensation they recover for you. You will be required to sign a contingency fee agreement. The maximum percentage that the attorneys can take is set by the state bar association.

Flat rate

Some attorneys work on a flat fee basis. The attorney will give you a specific dollar amount for their services. It doesn’t matter how many hours your case takes, they will not require you to pay more nor will they reimburse you for fewer hours. 

Combined approach 

Some lawyers use a combined approach. For example, a lawyer may charge on a contingency fee basis but require you to pay for additional fees such as filing court fees or paying expert witnesses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Lawyers Who Work on Contingency in New York

Do contingency fee rules differ depending on the type of personal injury claim you make?

Contingency fee rules as set by New York’s judiciary law are generally the same for all types of personal injury claims. However, the fees set for medical malpractice claims are regulated separately from other types of personal injury claims. According to New York’s Judiciary Law 474-a, lawyers may charge up to 30% of the first $250,000 recovered as compensation in a medical malpractice claim. They can then charge 25% on the next $250,000, 20% on subsequent $500,000, 15% on $250,000 and 10% on any amount recovered that is about $1,250,000. 

It is therefore important to ensure that your attorney provides you with a complete explanation of the fee agreement. Go through the agreement to make sure that you understand each and every part. If you are unsure about anything, refer to your lawyer for clarification before you sign the retainer agreement. You can always seek another opinion from another personal injury lawyer if you’re not satisfied.

Is there a difference between pro bono work and a contingency fee?

The terms pro bono and working on a contingency fee basis often get people mixed up. Pro bono means that the attorney is offering their services for free. If an attorney offers to represent you pro bono, it means that they are taking your case voluntarily and will not require any payment for their services.

However, if you hire a New York contingency lawyer, the lawyer will take your case and their fee will be paid from the compensation they recover on your behalf. Their payment is contingent on them recovering compensation on your behalf. You will not pay them out of pocket. Their payment is a percentage of the amount you recover. If they fail to recover compensation on your behalf, they will not be paid for their effort.
