How Does Contingency Work in STD Lawsuits?
In California, someone who doesn’t disclose their STD status to their sexual partner can be held responsible through an STD lawsuit, as well as possibly face criminal charges. If you’ve contracted an STD unexpectedly from a sexual partner, you may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and more. However, many people pursuing an STD claim often wonder how much it will cost.
At KMD Law, we operate on a contingency basis. Read on to learn why this is a cost-effective approach for our clients.
How Do Lawyers Get Paid on Contingency?
A client will pay their attorney a contingency fee when a claim is handled successfully. In a contingency fee arrangement, the attorney and client agree to a fixed percentage of their recovery. This is beneficial to the client since there is no upfront, out-of-pocket expenses. Since every case is different, it’s critical to discuss your contingency agreement in detail with your attorney to learn what you can expect.
How Do I Choose the Right Lawyer For My STD Claim?
