How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

There are many stereotypes of lawyers, and many of them are rooted in television shows and movies. One of the most common stereotypes is that they’re extremely expensive and charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a single office visit. And while that stereotype is true for lawyers in some fields, it’s different for many lawyers who handle personal injury claims.

People who need personal injury attorneys are often facing serious financial difficulties. That’s because they’ve just been injured and need expensive medical treatments. They’re also often too hurt to work, which means no paychecks over the coming weeks, months, or even years.

Injured victims often don’t have the money to pay lawyer’s fees or consultation costs. That’s why many victims either accept what the insurance company offers them or pay their own costs out of pocket. But what many victims don’t realize is that most personal injury lawyers offer both free consultations AND they work on contingency fees.

Contingency fees mean that they don’t charge for their services unless they win money for their clients. If there’s no settlement or victory in court, there’s no charge. This allows victims in even the direst of financial straits to still get legal representation on their side when they need compensation for their medical bills and lost wages.
