What to Expect About Injury and Accidents


Injury and Accident attorneys will typically charge on a "contingency" basis which means they will take a percentage of the final monetary award in your case.


Keep in mind that although an attorney mad advertise as charging their fee on a contingency basis, you will still likely have to pay for court costs and other expenses.


Attorneys charge for expenses incurred on behalf of clients. These expenses typically include copying charges, long-distance phone charges, postage, faxes, court filing fees, the cost of court reporters, expert witness fees, medical report fees, and other expenses associated with handling your case.


Attorneys are required to provide clients with a written fee agreement. Fee agreements help to clarify what you will be charged for, when you are expected to pay your invoices, and what you should do if you have a concern about fees.
