How Much Will a Car Accident Lawyer Cost You ?

A work-related car accident attorney will handle your case on a contingency fee basis, which means that clients are charged only if the lawsuit is won. The fee is established as a percent of the compensation awarded. However, the contingency fee does not include some organizational costs.

If you find yourself in the adverse situation of being involved in a car accident caused by another, you can hire a lawyer on a contingency fee basis. Find out what costs exist for representation in a car crash case and their worth.

Most personal injury lawyers handle work-related car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. Clients will be charged only if the lawsuit is won. The fee is usually established as a percent of the compensation awarded. The percent typically varies between 25% and 50% of the reimbursement settled or awarded.

You and your lawyer will enter a written fee agreement when the representation begins, stating what percent of the recovery the attorney will receive. If the matter is tried again or appealed to a higher court, the percentage can increase.

However, because each case is unique, our expenses vary a lot and include the services of experts that need to be paid, such as:

  • Medical doctors,
  • Engineers,
  • Biochemists,
  • Metallurgists,
  • Physicists.

Researching each case is a thorough job, and we want to make sure we have all the information needed to increase the chances of winning. When the case ends, you will receive a bill with all the costs and expenses and, if you won, the fees.

Other adjacent expenses can be

  • Court filing fees or
  • Costs prompted by witnesses.

Remember that these costs, unlike the contingency fee, have to be paid even if you lose your case unless otherwise specified in the contract.

In Florida, the Rules of Professional Conduct specify certain limits that apply to auto accident cases.
