The cost of a personal injury lawyer depends largely on the value of your case. That’s because a personal injury lawyer usually works on a contingency fee basis. At the Law Office of Anidjar & Levine, our injury attorneys work on contingency fees, allowing you to hire a lawyer without paying any money up front.
What Is a Contingency Fee?
A contingency fee is a fee contingent upon winning the case. You do not pay anything upfront or per hour. At the end of the case, the lawyer takes a fee out of the settlement or verdict.
For example, if you collect $0 in a settlement or verdict, your lawyer does not collect a legal fee. But if you get $10,000 in a settlement or verdict, then the lawyer gets a percentage of that $10,000.
What Percentage of My Settlement Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Take?
You should discuss the lawyer’s fee before agreeing to hire the lawyer. Make sure you understand what the fee is and that the fee is in the contract you sign.
When you speak with a lawyer at Anidjar & Levine about your case, we invite you to inquire about legal fees. We explain how our contingency fees work and will make sure everything is clear and straightforward. Call us at 1-800-747-3733 to set up your consultation.
What Are the Benefits of a Contingency Fee?
Hiring a lawyer who works on a contingency fee allows you to hire legal representation for your case at no upfront, out-of-pocket cost to you. It gives you access to a lawyer who can help you build your claim that proves fault and establishes case value.
Your lawyer will collect evidence that proves the value of your current and future medical bills, lost income during your recovery, reduced earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
