After a crash, truck accident victims often find they face a stressful financial situation. Truck accident injuries can be extremely serious, requiring extensive medical care and preventing victims from working as they did before the crash. This reduces the income a victim can earn while being forced to address incoming medical bills, home and vehicle changes, and other associated costs. A personal injury claim can provide compensation to address these changing needs, but it’s natural that victims and their families often hesitate to reach out for legal help. Many people fear they cannot afford an effective attorney, especially at such a difficult time. However, there are fee agreements that can help those who suffer truck accident injuries hire the experienced advocate they need.
Understanding a Contingency Fee Agreement
Most personal injury lawyers understand that victims and their families face a difficult time after an accident, so they work on what is known as a contingency fee agreement. This agreement requires that the accident victim only pay the attorney if the claim is successful. Then, the legal fees are paid directly from the compensation awarded by the settlement (or the court if the claim goes to trial).
