A contingency fee is a type of fee arrangement in which a lawyer agrees to take a case on the condition that they will only be paid if they win or settle the case. If the lawyer is successful, they will receive a percentage of the award or settlement as their fee.

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they take a percentage of the amount recovered from the defendant. There really is no standard fee. The percentage typically ranges from 33% to 40%, but we have seen some attorneys negotiate contingency agreements as high as 60%.

Yes, you can negotiate a settlement without a personal injury lawyer. However, it is highly recommended that you seek legal advice before attempting to negotiate a settlement on your own. A personal injury lawyer can provide you with the legal knowledge and experience necessary to ensure that your rights are fully protected and that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.

It is recommended that you seek medical attention as soon as possible after a slip and fall. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort, it is important to be evaluated by a medical professional.

A personal injury claim covers any physical, psychological, or emotional harm caused by another person’s negligence or intentional misconduct. This includes medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
