If you need a lawyer… what’s the first question you have? What is a Personal Injury Lawyer going to cost me?
Most lawyers work on a “Contingency Basis”. This means that they don’t need any money upfront. Instead, the attorney gets a portion of the settlement when the case finishes. The lawyer only gets paid if it ends in a favorable result. And typically those fees are anywhere between 30 – 40% of the total.
So yes, the lawyer does collect some of your settlement. But the total sum may far outweigh that which you may receive if you try to handle the claims by yourself. Get somebody with experience in your corner — A professional that knows his/her way around the insurance companies’ policies and tactics.
So if you’re in an accident and you call the right lawyer — you won’t be on the hook for attorney fees. If there’s no settlement, there’s no fee. As a result, you can focus on your recovery and not fighting insurance companies.
If you’re in an accident, make sure you take all the right steps. Even one mistake could cost you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars.
