What Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Claim?

The Walthew Law Firm handles personal injury or negligence matters on a contingency basis.  That means that you do not pay for attorney fees unless we are successful in making a recovery for you.  Typically the attorney fee will be a percentage of the gross settlement or jury verdict that is recovered for you.  The fee can vary by case, and other firms now put a clause into their fee contract that calls for a higher fee if the case goes to a full trial or to the appellate level. However, our rate is 331/3 percent. There will most likely be some additional costs in pursuing a personal injury claim such as gathering medical records, filing a lawsuit, hiring expert witnesses, investigation services, etc.  Those costs are the responsibility of the client but typically come out of the recovery at the end of the case.
