Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they take a percentage of the amount recovered from the defendant. The percentage typically ranges from 33% to 40%, but we have seen some attorneys negotiate contingency agreements as high as 60%.

The best way to find a personal injury lawyer near you is to search online for local attorneys. You can also ask friends, family, and colleagues for recommendations. Additionally, you can contact your local bar association or state bar association for a list of qualified personal injury lawyers in your area.

A personal injury claim is a legal action taken against an individual or organization who has caused harm to another person. These claims are typically filed in civil court and seek compensation for physical, emotional, or financial losses resulting from the injury.

A personal injury lawyer handles cases involving physical or psychological injury caused by the negligence or intentional harm of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Common types of personal injury cases include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and defective product cases.

Your personal injury claim may be going to court if the other party does not agree to settle your claim. This could be because they do not believe you are entitled to the amount of compensation you are seeking, or because they do not believe that the accident was their fault. If the two parties cannot come to an agreement, then the case may have to be decided in court.
