A flat contingency fee means that the injury lawyer’s fee does not increase with the steps taken in the lawsuit. The fee is a percentage of the payment you receive when your Claim is settled or awarded by the court.
In contrast, a graduated contingency fee increases based on the time and/or steps needed to resolve your case.
Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law charges a flat contingency fee of 33% for all injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Remember, a flat contingency fee means that the percentage does not increase if we have to do more work to resolve your Claim, even if it goes to litigation.Return to Personal Injury Glossary
