What is a contingency fee?
When you or a family member has a personal injury or disability claim, you may need to hire a lawyer to help get the compensation you deserve. At Lerners, our personal injury lawyers offer their services on a contingency basis. That means you only pay legal fees if you receive money because you win your case or get a negotiated settlement. You can obtain more information about contingency fees from the Law Society of Ontario.
What is the contingency fee charged by Lerners and its lawyers?
Our standard contingency fee is 33%. This is the most we will ever charge you for legal fees. In most cases, the defendants will make a contribution to your legal costs, which will reduce the fees you pay.
Note that different contingency fee arrangements may apply to class action lawsuits under the Class Proceedings Act.
