What kinds of fees are associated with personal injury lawsuits?
Personal injury cases at our law firm are taken on a contingency basis. Ultimately what that means is that if there’s a recovery, then the law firm will be paid through the recovery. If there’s no recovery, then that’s the risk that law firm takes in taking on the case and the client won’t owe an additional fee. There are also costs associated with pursuing a personal injury case that also is fronted by the law firm. Sometimes it’s hundreds of dollars. Sometimes it’s thousands of dollars. Sometimes it’s even tens of thousands of dollars, but ultimately, it’s the risk that a law firm takes on and then they’ll be reimbursed through any settlement.
