How Much Do Personal Injury Lawyers Cost?
We have two different fee structures in our firm. Some of our clients pay us hourly, so for every hour of work they pay us $275.00.
And other clients choose to wait until the end, and then pay us a percentage of the money we get for them. Most people who are injured choose the second way, the contingency fee, and how it works is you don’t pay us any money up front.
- You come to us.
- We take your case.
- We do all the work.
- We get you a settlement or a verdict.
- We get you money somehow and then you pay us a portion of that money.
That portion is usual one third, that’s the typical amount. So if you’re ever worried about having to pay for a personal injury lawyer out of your pocket, you really don’t need to worry about that, because we, like most personal injury lawyers, are willing to work for you on the basis that we get a portion of the money we get you. So, if the case doesn’t work out for some reason and we don’t get you any money, then we don’t get paid for our work. And that’s a risk we take and we’re fine with it.
So, every once in a while I get a call from someone who says, “Hey, I’d like to hire you guys, but I don’t know how I can afford it. How much do personal injury attorneys cost?” So this is the answer to that and, and this is why we do it. You shouldn’t ever have to worry about that when you’re thinking of hiring a personal injury lawyer.
Because almost all of us, and certainly our firm, are willing to take your case and not get paid until the end. In the end you will have the money to pay us because we will have gotten you that money, and if we didn’t then you don’t have to pay us for our work. So you can afford a personal injury lawyer in Portland.
