How much do you charge for a personal injury case?
We don’t charge the client directly; we only take a portion of what we can get from the other person’s insurance company. It’s a percentage of the other person’s insurance. There’s never any hidden charges, or any charge that comes from your pocket. The attorney’s percentage is typically 1/3 of the amount recovered. If you have questions about attorney’s fees, please call.
What are my payment options?
Most people want a contingency fee because they don’t have to pay any money out of their own pocket. A contingency fee can work to your advantage because you can get an attorney to take the risk of your case not working out. Although it may seem like the other person’s insurance will pay, you should know that insurance companies frequently refuse to pay full value if you are not represented, even with clear liability. If you have questions or suggestions on how to make the fee structure work better for you, you’re welcome to call us to discuss alternatives.
What are case costs?
Case costs are amounts we pay to health care providers and others to get your records and other information necessary to prove your claim. There are no hidden costs or fees. All case costs are completely disclosed to you when your case is settled. We try to keep your costs as low as possible while at the same time developing all of the information appropriate for your case. For serious or more complicated injuries, the costs tend to be greater. In these kinds of cases there can be costs for investigators, experts, doctor opinions, and other items that will substantially improve the results of your case. Costs also greatly increase if your case needs to be “brought to court”.
