Personal Injury (25% Network Maximum)
Subject to applicable law and court rules, plan attorneys will handle personal injury matters (where you are the plaintiff) at a maximum fee of 25% of the gross award. It is your responsibility to pay this fee and all costs. If you are injured in a car and the injuries are as a result of another person's actions or negligence you may make a claim for money damages for your injury. Under the Plan an attorney will represent you in this case and charge a contingent fee of a maximum of 25%. If the attorney is successful the attorney will take a fee from the proceeds of the case. If the attorney is not successful there will be no fee. In either situation, you will be responsible for third-party costs such as fees, expert depositions, transcripts, and doctor bills.
