It depends. We understand that no two cases are the same and handle each case uniquely. There are a variety of factors that can influence the value of a case. Generally speaking, the value of a case depends on the types of injuries suffered. The types of compensatory damages that are common in personal injury claims include: medical treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future income, emotional distress, and property damage. The extent of these injuries impact the value of your case.
Lawsuits are handled in a variety of ways. Lawyers can be paid on an hourly basis, on a contingency fee basis, or a blending of the two. Personal injury lawsuits are traditionally handled on a contingency fee basis. When working under a contingency fee arrangement, the law firm advances all litigation costs and receives a portion of the funds recovered as payment. If no funds are recovered, the client owes nothing.
Your case may be eligible to be handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that all costs of litigation are advanced by the law firm and the firm is paid a portion of the funds recovered for its services. There are no out of pocket expenses and if there is no recovery, you owe nothing.
