All Cases Handled On a Contingency Fee Basis - No Upfront Costs
As surprising as it might be, you can certainly afford the representation of a personal injury lawyer 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.

Personal Injury FAQs
What constitutes pain and suffering?
Physical pain, as well as both temporary and permanent limitations placed on the individual's life, constitute "pain and suffering" in a personal injury case.
Damages involved in pain and suffering include mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, fear, anger, humiliation, anxiety, and shock. Severe mental anguish can come in the form of depression, loss of appetite, lack of energy, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, and/or sleep disturbances, even PTSD.
How Is Pain & Suffering Calculated?
Judges and juries are left to determine the value of pain and suffering during the case. Judges mainly instruct juries to use their own good sense, background, and experience to determine what a fair and reasonable figure would be to compensate the plaintiff for their loss.
Factors that determine the value of the pain and suffering component include:
- Credibility of the plaintiff
- Consistency of their testimony
- Possible exaggeration of their claims
- Physician's support of their claims
- Whether the claims make sense to the jury or not
