A big question many victims in car accidents have is how much it will cost to hire an attorney. Many people don’t even seek out an attorney because they don’t believe they can pay for one. Every attorney is different and has their own policy for charges. Most attorneys handle car accidents on what is called a “contingency fee” basis. This is where an attorney takes a percentage of what you recover as a result of the car accident. This is the most common method because most people do not have money up front to pay an attorney. The attorney usually will pay for the costs of the case (costs for investigating the accident, acquiring medical records, filing the lawsuit, etc) and expect to be repaid those costs at the end of the case. Our firm does not collect these cost unless we recover money for you. This is the gamble we take when we take your case. On a contingency fee, the attorney is not paid unless you are.
The amount of the percentage depends on the attorney and the complexity of your case.
