What Legal Costs Should You Expect in a Personal Injury Case?

Legal costs vary among attorneys. Generally, there are filing fees and administrative costs. However, more complex cases can require expert witnesses.

Expert witnesses can charge extensive fees to write reports and testify about circumstances involving your accident and injuries suffered.

These expenses might seem intimidating.

However, if you hire an attorney who works under a contingency fee, you will not have to worry about up-front expenses associated with your personal injury case.

Joseph Farzam is a personal injury attorney in the Los Angeles area who works under a contingency fee. That means you will pay only if we win your case.

What Is a Contingency Fee?

Working under a contingency fee means you will pay only if your attorney wins your case or obtains a favorable settlement. In other words, there are no up-front costs to you.

Under a contingency fee, your attorney will pay for all the costs associated with your personal injury case—expert witnesses, filing fees, administrative costs.

However, your attorney will take a percentage of the settlement you receive. Generally, contingency fees range between 30 to 50 percent of the settlement amount.

The percentage of the settlement your attorney takes may depend on your attorney’s experience, the complexity of your case, and the attorney’s success rate.

However, on the upside, contingency fees make hiring a personal injury attorney affordable.
