Watch this video of Attorney Derek Pakiz to learn about the details of what you have to pay a personal injury lawyer.
You may be wondering, “How much am I going to have to pay a personal injury lawyer?”
Virtually every personal injury attorney will not charge you for their time — what attorneys call fees — until and unless they win your case. Your case is taken on a “contingency fee” basis, which means the attorney will be paid a percentage of the money ultimately recovered on your behalf.
However, fewer attorneys will agree that you never have to pay them back any of the money they invest in your case — what attorneys call costs — , if the case is somehow lost.
Therefore, it’s important for you to find out up-front whether the attorneys you are talking to agree that you will never owe them a single penny for any reason… unless they win the case for you.
