Frequently Asked Questions
Personal Injury FAQs
How Does A Personal Injury Attorney Get Paid
Short Answer: On a Contingency Basis
Longer Answer: You’ve heard the saying “If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.” This references a contingent fee between the client and the lawyer. In essence, your attorney gets a percentage of what they recover for you. Typically in personal injury, that is one third, or 33% of the gross amount recovered. From the remainder, your medical bills are negotiated by your attorney, and paid out of the proceeds. The remainder goes to you.
A personal injury consultation is a conversation between you and the attorney. You can have your consultation over the phone or in person. During the consultation, you and the attorney will discuss your situation and the attorney will help you better understand the options you have. The goal is to answer your questions and help you decide on your next step. There is no pressure to move forward. The consultation is about helping you, it’s not about the law firm.
