How much does it cost to hire a good injury attorney?
This Quick Question features David Klibaner, a personal injury attorney based in Denver, Colorado. He explains that most personal injury lawyers will offer free consultations to anyone curious about whether or not they have a case. Injury attorneys also don’t charge any out-of-pocket fees to handle a case. Rather, they receive a percentage of a verdict or settlement when the case concludes.
To learn more, contact the attorney directly by calling 888-593-1295 or by submitting a contact form on this page. The consultation is free and confidential, and you owe no out-of-pocket attorney fees.
The field of personal injury spans many different kinds of cases including work injuries, car accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability, maritime injury, and more. Essentially, any kind of case in which a person was injured falls under the field of personal injury, and the attorneys who represent these and more personal injury cases work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorney will only take a percentage of what they are able to recover for their client in a successful personal injury claim.
However, if a personal injury attorney is not able to recover money for you, you won’t have to pay a penny. This allows injured parties to focus on healing and recovery rather than worrying about how they are going to afford to pay a lawyer, as is a common concern in other areas of law. In fact, even the expenses that go into building the case, such as hiring experts to assess the injury or damages and even simple expenses like postage fees are generally covered by the law firm as well. Many injured people refrain from seeking justice for the situation due to a mistaken belief that they cannot afford to hire an attorney. The good news in the realm of personal injuries is that this is not the case.
In these consultations, an attorney helps you assess the variability of your claim and will be able to answer any other questions you may have. Within this conversation, you can ask the attorney what percentage of the winnings of the case they expect to recoup. Reputable personal injury attorneys will be straightforward about their fees, and have their client’s wellbeing and recovery first and foremost in mind. If someone is too badly injured or busy seeking medical treatment and cannot contact an attorney on their own, a family member can do so on their behalf.
During this consultation, it’s a good idea to ask what kind of experience the attorney has handling cases similar to your own. A potential client should also ask about the attorney’s track record for success and what kind of resources they have available to give your case the best chance at seeking maximum compensation. If at any point you are uncomfortable with the answers in your consultation, you may request another free consultation with a different personal injury attorney. With this in mind, if you or a loved one suffered any kind of personal injury, don’t struggle to deal with the damages alone. Seek legal counsel and learn what an attorney can do for you.

What if I don't think I can afford an attorney for a personal injury case? In this AskTheLawyers.com Quick Question, we ask Colorado attorney David Klibaner.
Generally, virtually all or every personal injury attorney, I know, including myself, of course, works on a contingency basis, meaning we'll take a percentage of what we can recover for the client and I, and most other attorneys, will talk with potential clients, who are injured without any charge. So it always makes sense to try. If you think you have a claim to talk to a personal injury attorney.
