How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

Gavel and money

If you’ve been injured whether it was in a car crash, motorcycle accident, slip and fall, or another incident you likely have substantial medical bills. What’s more, you may have no way of paying them, particularly if you’re unable to work due to your injury.

Hiring a personal injury attorney could offer you the best chance to recover the compensation you deserve. But can you afford one on top of all your other expenses?

In a word, yes. Morgan & Morgan attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing upfront and we get paid only if your case is successful. The money never comes out of your own pocket, but instead out of the favorable jury verdict or settlement that we obtain for you.

What Is a Contingency Fee?

After an injury, you may find yourself in need of legal representation but without the money to pay for it. The contingency fee arrangement between client and attorney exists for precisely this reason.

In a contingency fee agreement, your personal injury lawyer will get paid only when you recover compensation, whether through a settlement or a verdict at trial. In other words, payment for your attorney’s services is contingent upon you receiving compensation.

Your attorney will receive a fixed percentage of the compensation you recover (often 30-35%), minus any expenses your legal team incurred in order to successfully resolve the case.

What Expenses Might Be Necessary to Win My Case?

Your attorney’s job is to build the best case possible to maximize the compensation you receive. There are some costs associated with building a strong case, which may include:

  • Expert witness payment
  • Investigator payment
  • Accident reconstruction
  • Filing fees
  • Depositions
  • Trial exhibits
  • Transcripts
  • Travel costs

Morgan & Morgan attorneys cover these costs and expenses as they arise. They will only be deducted from your share of the settlement or court award after the case is won.
