How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Get Paid In Miami?

Personal injury attorneys usually take cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that they are paid a percentage of the amount of money received in a settlement or jury verdict. Personal injury attorneys do not get paid unless their client wins the case.

Sean Cleary, Miami, Florida personal injury attorney is paid on a contingency fee, which means that the payment fees depend very much on the outcome of your case and they are variable and negotiable. One important aspect is that we do not charge any fees unless a case is settled or taken to trial and won.

According to our contract, when a personal injury case is won, the other party has to pay a percentage of the recovery, which depends upon how much your settlement was. We charge gradual fees that vary according to the amount of money you are entitled to receive or recover. For example, we can charge 40% for the first $1 million dollars recovered and 30% of the second million that is recovered, and then 20% after $2 million dollars.

However, because each case is unique, our expenses vary and are related to the experts in the case 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.
