How much will it cost to hire an attorney for my New York personal injury case?
In New York, personal injury cases are handled on what's called a contingency fee basis. That just means that the attorney doesn't get paid their fee until the end of the case, and they don't get paid a fee unless or until they actually recover something for you. So, if the case settles or goes to trial and you win, that's the only time the attorney gets their fee.
So this is a lot different than what you might be familiar with with a real estate attorney or an immigration attorney, but the contingency fee basis means that the attorney only gets paid if they make a recovery for you.
