How Much Do Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?
Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. This means that you, the client, do not pay for the lawyer’s services on an hourly basis. Instead, the lawyer earns a fee based on a percentage of their recovery for you.
If there is no recovery, the attorney does not receive a fee.
This allows folks who may not have the financial ability to pay a lawyer by the hour to still have someone fighting on their behalf against large corporations, including multi-billion-dollar insurance companies.
Contingency fees are usually a 33 to 40% of the amount recovered for the client. For example, if your case settles for $120,000 and the fee is 1/3, your lawyer gets paid a $40,000 attorney fee.
At Fisher Stark, we typically find that our clients receive more total dollars in their pocket when we handle their case rather attempting to navigate the process on their own.
All too often, folks who handle cases on their own receive significantly less in total dollars because the insurance company and their legal team will take advantage of your lack of representation.
Is it Worth it to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Serious injuries need serious professionals.
Filing a successful personal injury claim can require a lot of specialized skills, legal knowledge and training.
A personal injury lawsuit can quickly become complex and it’s not easy for non-lawyers to know what to expect or how to proceed, especially if they are still healing.
Most folks would not take any amount of money to voluntarily go through what they experienced from a wreck, or from a defective product.
At Fisher Stark, P.A., we work with your care team to maximize your recovery and put as much compensation as possible into your hands.
Why sell your case short?
Hiring a law firm experienced with your type of injury is usually the best chance to receive maximum compensation.
