Many clients are concerned about the cost of a good personal injury lawyer. Attorney Lynn C. Harris operates on a contingent fee basis, meaning that he only gets paid if and when a settlement or compensation has been received by his client. This payment plan allows people from all walks of life to get the legal aid they deserve. Mr. Harris and his entire Salt Lake City practice of look forward to helping clients attain winning results with each case.
One of the questions I get asked is, “How do I pay you, Mr. Harris, how does it work?” We work on what is called a contingency fee basis. Our fee is contingent upon winning. If I don’t get you a settlement, I don’t get you any compensation, I get zero. The process involves the advancement of costs to get police reports, to get medical records, to have the case reviewed. I advance all of those costs. I pay all of those costs. Eventually when we recover money, we get a settlement, then you help me pay those costs back, but it’s all on a contingency fee, it’s on a percentage basis. You have no risk. The bottom line is, without a recovery you have no risk for payment. That’s how the arrangement is made. It’s put in what’s called a contingency fee agreement which you can read and review and discuss, and then we’ll proceed from that point in time.
