Due to the fact that amusement park injury cases are usually handled by personal injury lawyers, you should be charged on a contingency fee basis. Meaning that it doesn’t cost you anything for you to hire an attorney to help you with the case, as he will be paid only if the case is won when he will be reimbursed for his expenses out of the recovery you are awarded.
Amusement park injury cases are usually handled by personal injury lawyers and usually on a contingency fee basis. The contingency fee depends on the contractual agreement you sign with your lawyer or law firm, which is paid as a percentage of the award or settlement in the case. In this type of lawyer-client agreement, if the case goes to trial and you lose, you do not have to pay your lawyer anything. The most common contingency fee is 33% of the award or settlement, although the portion of the award that goes to the lawyer can vary and some arrangements might use different numbers for different circumstances.
Most personal injury lawyers offer a free initial consultation before a client hires them. Another issue that must be discussed during your consultation is related to the payment and costs of the litigation, which includes court filing fees, the cost of hiring experts, and obtaining medical records from the hospital. Most lawyers, however, use agreements that state that the lawyer will pay for costs of litigation, at least initially.
