How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
We often get the question, “How much will a personal injury attorney cost me?” In essence, that answer depends on how much we recover on your behalf, however, we charge nothing upfront. While some attorneys charge an hourly fee for their services, others (like us) work on a contingency-fee basis. That means our fees are contingent upon the amount of money awarded in an individual case. We don’t charge you an hourly rate or send you bills in the mail, and we do all the work for you upfront. Our legal team of attorneys, personal investigators, paralegals and support staff will investigate the incident, gather necessary medical records, work with the at-fault party’s insurance or defense attorney, and oftentimes take a case to trial — all before our clients pay a single dime.
So, how does our firm get paid? If the case settles out of court, we accept a fixed percentage of the settlement, which the attorney and client agree upon prior to working on the case. If we have to file a lawsuit, that fixed percentage does generally increase. If you don’t make a monetary recovery, you won’t owe us anything.
Whether you were in a car accident, had a slip and fall, or were the victim of a defective or unsafe product, there are no costs or fees to you unless we win your case. This goes for all of our practice areas. If you have any questions about how contingency fees work, we are always here to help. We want each and every one of our clients to feel comfortable before signing any documents.
