How much will it cost to hire a lawyer for my case?

As a personal injury attorney, the cost of hiring a lawyer for your case can vary depending on several factors. In general, attorneys who handle personal injury cases work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only pay if you win your case. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Contingency Fee: Most personal injury lawyers, including The Ruth Law Team, work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that their fees are contingent on the outcome of your case. If you don’t receive a settlement or award, you won’t owe any legal fees. The typical fee ranges from 25% to 40% of your settlement or award, but this can vary depending on the attorney and the specifics of your case.
  • Hourly Rates: Some attorneys may charge an hourly rate instead of a contingency fee, and they will generally require a retainer fee before starting representation. This is less common in personal injury cases, but it could be used in cases that have unique circumstances.
  • Costs and Expenses: In addition to legal fees, there may be other costs and expenses associated with your case. This can include court fees, expert witness fees, and fees for medical records or other documents. At The Ruth Law Team, we pay these costs upfront so you don’t have to. dUltimately, the costs are deducted from your settlement or award.  
  • Free Consultation: Most personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and determine whether they can help you. During this consultation, you can ask about their fees and costs, as well as their experience and track record.
