What's A Contigency Fee?
Ok, so where hurt in a car accident and you're thinking about hiring a lawyer.
But where are you going to get the money ??
Most lawyers who represent people who've been hurt in car accident work on what's called a contingency basis.
So what does that mean??
It means that your lawyer gets paid a percentage of what he/she gets for you by way of a settlement or a trial judgement.
So you don't need to pay your lawyer any money up front towards his/her fees.
In B.C. the maximum contingency fee that a lawyer can charge you for your ICBC claim is 33 1/3%.
But like any other service, there's a market. Different lawyers charge different percentages.
