What Is A Contingency Fee?
In polite company, one should never talk about: religion, politics, relationships, or salary, yet, many people wonder: how much do South Carolina Attorneys make? When you understand what a contingency fee is, this becomes simple to answer.
If the attorney is working for a plaintiff firm, they work on a contingency basis. This means that they get paid for their services if, and only if, they get a positive outcome. You only owe the lawyer money if they can get you financial compensation for your damages—whatever they may be. This is to provide an incentive to file lawsuits with merit and get you results in an expedited manner as some cases have a statute of limitations attached. Short and dirty: they get paid if you get paid.
A defense attorney will usually charge by the hour (at a fairly exorbitant rate) meaning their income is not contingent upon a positive outcome.
