If you have been injured because of somebody else’s negligence, you might be thinking about bringing a personal injury claim. You know that your chances of being fully and fairly compensated for your damages are better if you hire a personal injury lawyer, but if you’re like many other people in this situation, finances are a major concern. Injuries often result in mounting medical bills, and more severe injuries can mean lost time from work … and lost paychecks. So it’s only reasonable to ask: “How much will it cost to hire a lawyer for my personal injury claim?”
At the outset, hiring a personal injury lawyer will cost you nothing. This is because personal injury lawyers typically work on a “contingency fee” basis. What that means is that the lawyer’s fee is contingent on the final outcome of the case. Only when the case is resolved successfully (through settlement or otherwise) will the lawyer take a fee in the form of a percentage of the amount recovered.
Aside from sparing you additional bills when you can least afford to pay them, the contingency fee arrangement also incentivizes your personal injury lawyer to maximize the amount of your recovery. The more you get paid, the more your lawyer gets paid as a fee. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement that helps remove the worries and stress for the injured client.
