What a Fair Percentage for Contingency fees in a Williamsburg Car Accident?


It’s never good for a personal injury attorney to be competing on price like the brands on store shelves do, but we took a look at a man’s fee agreement that recently came to us for a second opinion. He  signed on with a 40% contingency fee which would go directly to his attorney even if the case settled long before trial. That’s outrageous! The appropriate fee should be between 22% and 33%, but only if you win of course! We charge 25% for car accident cases settled long before trial. (Note: you should never hire an attorney solely on price but our system and our track record is worth examining.)

You’re most likely going to be facing a number of expenses straight out of your pocket, ranging from medical bills, to reports from doctors, and even filing fees. That’s just something you’re going to have to be ready for when trying to handle your case. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us and we can walk you through the steps of sorting out Virginia personal injury attorney fees. It's pretty unfortunate to see, but there are attorneys who are looking to hurt their clients with a contingent fee which could be worse than their personal injury!
