Paying For Your Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you or a loved one is injured, in order to be compensated for damages, you will need to file a lawsuit. A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you navigate the process.

You do not have to pay any money out of pocket for a personal injury lawyer. In personal injury, attorneys charge a contingency fee for their services. This means that a certain percentage is taken out of any money the court awards you to pay for the attorney. Thus, if you do not win your case, you generally will not have to pay the attorney any money. This allows any individual to file a case regardless of economic standing.

Please be aware that if the case makes it to court, there will be court fees such as a filing fee in addition to the attorney fees. However, since most litigation settles before making it to court, these court fees are rarely necessary.

The contingency fee will vary between states. Typically, it will be between 33% and 40% of the award. Lawyers who have extensive experience in the field may have higher contingency fees. However, they may be able to settle a case for more money than a lawyer who does not have as much skill.
