How do you pay for expenses and fees incurred in a personal injury lawsuit? Let's ask Washington lawyer Rebeccah Graham for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
Most lawyers like ourselves, we take cases on what we call a contingency fee basis, which means that we are paid a percentage of what we recover on your behalf. If we don't recover anything on your behalf, then we don't get paid. We have a practice of, usually, paying for cost for a case upfront. And those can be quite expensive. Sometimes we are spending tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to prosecute a case, and we pay those costs upfront, and then at the end of the day, when we resolve your case, we get reimbursed for the costs that we've paid.
