Most truck accident attorneys will handle an injured party’s case on a contingency fee basis. This means that the client does not pay the attorney anything unless and until the attorney recovers compensation for the client.

In contingency fee arrangements, the attorney will also typically pay for the costs of the case, such as expert witness fees or court filing fees. The attorney’s fee is usually calculated as a percentage of the client’s total recovery. Any expenses covered by the attorney, will be deducted from the client’s recovery.
