How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Charge?
How Much Does a Lawyer Charges – And How
Lawyers are expensive, so the cost is likely a worry when a victim needs representation. However, most personal injury law firms don’t charge their clients upfront, so this isn’t going to be as much of a concern as the victim might think. In most cases, a personal injury lawyer attorney is going to provide their services on a contingency basis. This is also known as “no win, no fee” as the victim doesn’t pay unless they receive money from the liable party.
If a settlement is reached or the victim wins the case in court, the attorney will take a percentage of the winnings. This is factored into the amount of money they ask for in a settlement or request through the courts, so it’s not part of the money needed to cover medical and other bills the victim may have. It’s on top of that. If the victim is not awarded compensation or does not receive a settlement, the lawyer does not receive fees from their client. The client doesn’t need to worry about coming up with the money to cover the cost of the lawyer, so they don’t have to worry about yet another bill to be paid as a result of the accident.
