How Much Do You Typically Pay a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Posted by Erik Hoyle | Feb 02, 2024 | 0 Comments

Typically, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that their fee is contingent upon winning the case or securing a settlement for you. If they are successful, they receive a percentage of the award or settlement amount. This percentage can vary but is commonly around 33% to 40% of the settlement or award.

Some lawyers might charge different rates or have different fee structures, and there might be additional costs for things like filing fees, research, and expert witness fees. It's important to discuss all fees and costs with a lawyer upfront and read any agreements carefully before signing.

Remember, these are general practices and can vary by location and the specific circumstances of your case. Always consult directly with a lawyer to understand their specific fee structure.
