How Much Do Lawyers Charge for Accident Claims?

How Much Do Lawyers Charge for Accident Claims? | High Stakes Injury Law

How much a lawyer charges for an accident claim depends on your lawyer and the nature of your case. At High Stakes Injury Law, we work on a contingency-fee-basis. We do not get paid unless we recover money.

How Contingency Fee Cases Work

When you or someone you love gets seriously injured in an accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation to help cover your medical bills, lost wages, lost earning potential, and past and future pain and suffering. A personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you build your case for this compensation by investigating the accident and advocating for you.

Although some lawyers charge you hourly for the work they do on your case, at High Stakes Injury Law, we work on a contingency-fee-basis. This means that our fee is taken as a percentage of the compensation you are ultimately awarded. This money can come in the form of a settlement or through damages awarded by a judge or jury.

The Kinds of Damages You Can Receive in an Accident Claim

When you are hurt in an accident, you can potentially receive damages to cover both your economic and non-economic losses due to your injuries.

Economic damages include things like your medical bills, lost wages, and future loss of earning capacity. It also includes out-of-pocket expenses you may incur; permanently or temporarily disabling injuries can mean you need to hire services and purchase medical equipment that you would otherwise not need.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are meant to compensate you for your past and future pain, suffering, and mental anguish. After an accident, you may find it difficult to go about your day-to-day life or do the things that once brought you joy.

The impact of your injuries does not always have a dollar amount attached, but that does not mean that you should not be compensated for it. Our personal injury lawyer will fight for everything you are owed, not just your economic losses.

The Amount of Damages You Can Receive in an Accident Claim

The amount of money you recover through an accident claim and personal injury lawsuit is dependent on a variety of factors, such as the type and extent of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.

For some people, their injuries may heal quickly and leave few lasting consequences, while for others, their injuries may cause long-term complications, even developing into chronic conditions that require ongoing care. Some people lose their jobs or ability to work while incapacitated from an injury, while others are able to go right back to earning.

Since everyone’s situation and everyone’s injuries are different, the amount of compensation that can be recovered also varies. Your personal injury lawyer from our firm will be able to give you a better idea of how much you can seek given your circumstances.

Why Choose a Lawyer Who Works on a Contingency-Fee-Basis?

Our fees are not contingent on the outcome we achieve for you, so we will not waste time or resources to up an hourly bill. Instead, we will do what it takes to get you the compensation you need and deserve after someone else’s negligent actions leave you hurt.
