In Florida, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that their fee is a percentage of what you get in the end. Of course, what that means is that the personal injury lawyer has teamed up with you. That lawyer's interest is perfectly aligned with yours. You want to get the best recovery that you can get, and that lawyer has joined forces with you, and he only gets paid if you get paid. So the fee is a percentage, and of course, if you don't get any recovery at all, there is no fee.
