How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney? Hi, my name’s Eric Stevenson and I’m an attorney at Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers. That’s a great question that we get asked a lot. People will call and they’ll say, is it expensive to use you? What’s your fee structure? So there are three things to remember about using a personal injury law firm for representing you when you’ve been injured in an accident. First is consultations are free. When you call our office, we don’t charge to meet with you, to talk with you about your case and help you make a decision about whether you would like us to represent you. Number two is that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that there is no charge to you unless we recover something.
If we recover something from the insurance company, then what we get paid is a percentage of what we get at the end, so we won’t be sending you bills as we go along in the case saying, hey, send us more money. We need more money to do this or that. You’re not up to date on your account. We get paid at the end of the case and so even if we wind up at the end of the case and we nothing then our representation was actually free. Number three is our fees are pretty standard in the area. We charge one third if we don’t file a lawsuit and 40%, if we do. The Florida Bar sets the rules on the maximum that attorneys are allowed to charge and so that’s the fee that most attorneys charge, is what the Florida Bar recommends, as far as that’s concerned. So, that’s the nuts and bolts of how much it costs to hire a personal injury lawyer. Again, my name is Eric Stevenson with Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers. And remember we put lives back together.
