Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not be charged a fee unless a personal injury settlement or judgment is recovered on your behalf. The industry standard is to charge between 33 and 40 percent of the gross recovery. Fee percentages may shift between 33 and 40 percent depending on the stage of your case. Most attorneys cannot receive more than 33 percent in fees if your case reaches a settlement before filing a lawsuit, such as a car accident case, but this depends on the willingness of the at-fault party’s insurance company to negotiate a settlement. If the at-fault party’s insurance company makes no attempt to respond or settle, you may choose to file a lawsuit and this may increase the percent your personal injury attorney charges. You should talk to your personal injury attorney about any expenses and fees prior to signing a fee agreement.
