Have you been injured in an accident and need legal assistance? We understand how difficult it can be to find an experienced lawyer who will help you with your case, especially when debt accumulates and attorney fees are unclear. The topic of personal injury lawyer’s fees will be discussed in this article.

Importance of Information

It’s crucial to be informed before hiring a lawyer, especially if you’ve suffered some kind of accident. Experience has shown us that a lack of information can lead to mistakes in choosing a lawyer.

How Are Fees Calculated?

In personal injury cases, lawyers generally work on a “contingency” basis, meaning they only charge if they win the case. The percentage of fees varies depending on the type of accident. For instance, in workplace accidents, it could be 15%, while in vehicle accidents it could range between 35% and 45%.

Free Consultations

Normally, initial consultations related to accidents are free. This allows you to discuss your case without the stress of incurring additional expenses.

Calculating the Percentage

It’s important to know that the lawyer’s percentage is calculated from the total amount won in the case. Medical expenses and other costs are deducted from the amount that the client ultimately receives.

Contract and Transparency

There should always be a signed contract between the lawyer and the client. This contract should detail how the fees will be calculated and what percentage the lawyer will receive.


Hiring a lawyer is an important decision that can significantly affect the outcome of your case. Therefore, it’s crucial to be well-informed and choose wisely.
