How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Charge?
June 11, 2020
Personal injury attorneys charge a contingency fee for their work. That means their fee is a percentage of what they are able to recover for their clients – usually between 30% or 40% depending on a number of factors.
The experienced injury attorneys at Biesterveld & Crook, LLC have represented scores of people injured in car wrecks, falls, dog attacks, and at work. We believe offering our services on a contingency fee provides our clients with the freedom to have professional representation without the burden of upfront attorney fees.
What Factors Does a Personal Injury Attorney Consider in Deciding What to Charge?
Every case is different. Personal injury attorneys try to offer a rate that is fair for their services. Sometimes, the attorney makes less per hour when charging a contingency fee due to difficult and unforeseen circumstances that complicate a case, such as low insurance coverage limits, questionable liability, and preexisting medical conditions that make new injuries hard to discern.
Contingency fees allow injury victims to hire legal representation without paying a hefty deposit. Instead, they can focus on seeking medical treatment without the added financial stress.
