How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Charge?

When you have been seriously injured by the negligent actions of a third party, you should not be the one to have to foot your medical bills, repair costs, and gaps in income due to missing wages. If you want to receive fair compensation from the liable party, you will need to consider creating a personal injury claim. Furthermore, to give your claim the strength it will need to stand up to the opposition and any criticism, you will want a personal injury attorney managing it for you. This raises the question: “How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer, anyway?”

Contingency Fees Make Legal Counsel Affordable for Anyone

Just hearing the term ‘attorney fees’ can be a little intimidating if you are not exactly sitting comfortably with excess finances. After a bad accident and injury, it is all the more likely that your finances have taken a hit. Will you be able to afford personal injury claim representation?

Yes. As surprising as it might be, you can certainly afford the representation of a personal injury attorney due to something called contingency fees, which lawyers charge when taking on personal injury cases. A contingency fee agreement means your attorney will not be paid any attorney fees unless they win you a settlement or verdict amount at the end of your case or claim. In effect, you can pursue compensation without having to put any large amount of money upfront. There may be some small filing fees and other costs associated with going to court, though.

Contingency fees are also calculated as a percentage of your total winnings at the end of your case. The percentage amount can vary depending on the complexity of your case and how long it takes to resolve. For the most part, you can expect an average contingency fee amount of about 25%, with a cap of 40%. Due to this unique, percentage-based payment arrangement, you will never owe your personal injury attorney more than you can afford.
