It’s a common question for anyone dealing with the aftermath of a serious injury or loss: how much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer? Many people would like to take legal action to try and recoup their losses after an injury, but fear they cannot afford an attorney. However, the truth about the cost of a personal injury attorney is great news for anyone worried about paying attorney fees.

Most personal injury attorneys work on contingency.

Many people dismiss the possibility of filing a claim to seek compensation for an injury under the assumption that they can’t afford a lawyer; however, in personal injury cases, this is rarely the case. Most reputable personal injury attorneys work on contingency. Working on a contingency fee or “percentage” fee means that you will not owe your legal team a penny until and unless they win your case for you.

This is great news for personal injury victims who are likely already stressed and should be focusing on their health and recovery after an accident. A victim of a personal injury can seek legal advice and take legal action with zero financial obligation.

If your attorney wins your case, only then will they be paid a percentage of the winnings.

As you seek legal advice regarding your case, it’s a good idea to ask upfront about that law firm’s contingency fees. What percentage do they charge? Will you be expected to pay extra expenses like printing, postage, or court fees? These are reasonable questions that reputable lawyers will not be surprised to hear and happy to answer for you.

If your attorney does not win your case, you will not owe them anything.

If your legal team is not able to recover, settle, or obtain a successful verdict for your case, all attorney fees and legal expenses will be waived as agreed upon. Generally, an attorney will not take your case to begin with unless they feel certain that your chances of winning the case are reliable. The circumstances and available evidence surrounding the situation in which the accident occurred will likely be subject to scrutiny before a lawyer takes your case. This greatly reduces and often even eliminates the financial risk for a personal injury victim, so their focus can remain on healing and a return to daily life.

With this information in mind, if you think you might have a personal injury claim, seek legal counsel. Even the consultation is free, so there’s nothing to lose if you choose to learn more about your eligibility to file, or even if you choose to do so.

I’m Leslie Rhode with a Quick Question from AskTheLawyers.com. How much does a personal injury attorney cost? We ask attorney Brian Davis of North Carolina.

Brian Davis:
Personal injury attorneys, especially in truck wreck cases, cost absolutely nothing up front.
We do not ask clients to come out of pocket for either attorneys’ fees or costs or expenses, so there’s zero financial obligation. We handle all of these cases on what’s called a percentage or a contingency fee. Our fee is contingent upon us making a recovery for the client. If we don’t make a recovery in the case, if we’re unable to settle the case, or get a verdict in the case, then the client owes us no attorneys’ fee.
