Less than half on your compensation will be used to pay your attorney
Not at all, though your attorney deserves to be compensated for their expertise as well as time, you will never ever have to pay it out of your pocket. That is because mesothelioma litigation attorneys neither charge any upfront fees nor do they expect payment of periodic bills until the case is settled.
Generally, mesothelioma law firm attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis, which means the clients are liable to pay only if they succeed in getting their compensation. A certain percentage of their settlement money would be taken as a legal fee. At Environmental Litigation Group, P.C., we follow a process that includes evaluation of work records, medical records, and asbestos product identification before filing a claim. All the expenses and the work hours will be borne by us as we genuinely work towards receiving fair compensation for our clients. Only when a settlement of the case is reached, legal costs/the contingency fee will be deducted from the amount awarded.
Usually, the mesothelioma law firm contingency fees range between 33-40% of the total compensation, regardless of the amount of compensation claimed. We collect a standard 40% contingency fee only if we are able to receive compensation in the form of settlements or trial verdict.
