How Are Legal Fees Charged and Calculated in an Injury Case?
In an injury case, lawyers including LA Century Law are generally paid on a contingency as oppose to on an hourly basis.
What Is A Contingency Fee?
A contingency fee means that our legal fees are contingent on the outcome of your case. Meaning, if we do not win you owe nothing. Further, we advance any and all costs associated with your matter. This includes Court Filing Fees, Services Fees, Deposition Costs, and any other Costs for fees related to your matter.
In a contingency fee agreement, the client’s interest and the lawyers are aligned. Therefore, it is our job to assure that we recover maximum value for your case!
Why Is A Contingency Fee Agreement Preferable?
As oppose to an hourly agreement, a client is benefited by a contingency fee agreement because it does not matter how many countless hours an attorney spends on the case. If they spend 100 or 1,000, the fee is always the same to the client, which is a percentage of the gross recovery obtained. This is different than an hourly fee agreement, where each hour an attorney spends on the case is billed to the client.

It is important to know that all injury claims are subject to the statute of limitations. The Statute of Limitations is a deadline to file a lawsuit. If your lawsuit is not filed within the statute of limitations, it may be lost forever. Most injury claims against another party is for negligence. Negligence claims or “causes of action” have a two-year statute of limitation from the date of the accident.
