Contingency basis, most of the time. Google "The Texas Hammer".

yes, that is how they charge, but how much does an associate earn when working for a firm? in other words what is the salary of an associate working in a personal injury office?

To be honest, most personal injury firms are one man shops. Maybe I'm wrong.

well, just as an example, if you go to your 'hammer' lawyer, and click on the icon that says 'attorneys', you will see that he has associates.

About the same as vampires. A bit more than werewolves (or is it a bit less?).

Actually with our recent tort reform - I would imagine there is a glut of PILs in Texas.

Literally anywhere between "Not paying income tax" and "Big House on Troon Road." There definitely isn't a set salary. It will depend largely on how much the attorney can afford to spend on advertising and chasing down business, whether the attorney knows who to refer cases to in order to get wins, whether or not the attorney has pissed off anyone they shouldn't have and whether or not the attorney is competent (or at least doesn't let anyone see it when they eff-up).
