You Can Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Contingency Fee

If you have an injury claim after a car accident, you can hire a lawyer without having to pay any money before your case is resolved. Most personal injury lawyers charge a contingency fee, meaning the fee depends on the outcome.

Most personal injury law firms like ours will take your case without asking you for money and pay all the expenses incurred along the way. When your case is settled or a verdict is paid, the fee and expenses will come out of the money recovered on your behalf.

This means you have access to qualified, professional help no matter your financial situation. It also means that if, for any reason, your case does not result in a payment, you do not owe any fees. You do not have to worry about a bill you cannot pay. Your injury attorney only gets paid If you get paid.

How much do you pay? It depends on how much you get. Contingency fees are almost always a percentage of the amount recovered. Before you hire a lawyer, ask about the fees. While a 1/3 fee is traditional for non-litigated car accidents, fees do vary from firm to firm.

Of course, there are many considerations that drive your choice of a personal injury lawyer, and you may have a good reason to hire a firm that charges you more. The important thing is that you are aware of the fees and make an informed choice.

In both Kentucky and Tennessee, a contingency fee agreement must be in writing, signed by the client, and must state how the fee is determined, including the percentages in the event of settlement, trial, or appeal.
