What is a Contingency Fee Contract?
All personal injury cases at Syfrett, Dykes & Furr Law Offices are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means the payment of any attorney’s fees are dependent upon the ultimate outcome of the case. If successful, then the attorney will be paid a percentage of the total amount recovered for the client. Put another way, the client is protected because the client never pays any attorney’s fees or costs unless a recovery is made for them. Additionally, pursuant to the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar there are additional requirements for contingency fee contracts in personal injury cases. Some of the additional requirements are that they must be in writing, the percentages allowed are controlled by the Florida Bar, and the client has three business to cancel the contract with no penalty whatsoever.
Because of the contingency fee contract, the client is guaranteed they will not be charged anything for the attorney’s time or costs unless the client makes a recovery in their case.
