Wondering what it costs to hire our firm on your injury case? One of our personal injury lawyers explains how our fees work and when we get paid for helping you. For consumers the beauty of a contingency fee is, we don't take your case unless we're pretty sure we can help you. The benefit to society is, it discourages lawyers from filing frivolous lawsuits- if we don't think you have a meritorious case that should be paid, we can't get paid, so we decline the case.
Our injured clients often ask us “do they need to pay us up front?” or “how do we get paid in an injury case?”
Well the answer's no you don't need to pay us up front, we get paid on a contingency fee. That is our fee is contingent or based upon what we recover. In the typical case we earn are one-third. Also you have cost in your injury case. We reimburse ourselves for that cost and that's separate from the fee. Costs like medical records filing fee, deposition costs, etc. So the important thing for you to remember is you don't have to pay us anything upfront for us to take your case. We don't send you a bill during the pendency of your case asking you to pay us for the hours.
We put in we don't get paid until we recover for you. Thank you.
