Most attorneys on auto accident cases charge on what’s known as a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee is a fee that is contingent upon recovery to the client, meaning if there’s no money paid to the client at the end of the day, the attorney doesn’t receive a fee in connection with their services. In the New Orleans market, the kind of industry standard fee is around 1/3, or 33% to 40% of the recovery. However, some firms, like ours, the fee structure begins at 25% which quite often results in more compensation remaining with the client where it’s rightfully deserved.
