Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

When a person is injured, it seems reasonable that the party responsible for the injuries should offer compensation to cover the injury. Unfortunately, this does not usually take place without legal action. Therefore, it becomes necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer who is educated in the field and knows how to negotiate or try your case.

The good news is there is generally no out of pocket cost in hiring a personal injury lawyer. The lawyers will take their pay out of any settlement money you may receive. Therefore, you do not need to worry about losing money. The system allows anyone to be able to hire a lawyer regardless of current financial status.

The fee the lawyer charges is known as a “contingency fee” as it is contingent upon you winning your case. Most contingency fees are a third to 40% of the personal injury award. Typically, attorney’s fees for workers compensation are lower. You should know up front what percentage of your award will serve as the contingency fee. Generally, the lawyers with more expertise and experience in the field have a higher contingency fee. However, this does not mean you will receive less money. If the lawyer is very good, he or she might be able to help you receive a greater reward than if the lawyer had only subpar skills.
