Understanding the Contingency Fee
Most personal injury attorneys in Florida (including us) use a contingency fee arrangement. What this means is that we will receive a percentage of the award you receive. One of the reasons this payment arrangement is so popular is because it doesn’t require clients to pay anything upfront. There’s no retailer and no hourly rate to worry about. As a result, it helps to reduce the financial burden of the client, which is usually a welcome aspect when facing other bills related to the accident.
The percentage that the lawyer you hire will take from your award depends on the amount of work required and the complexity of your case. In most cases, in the state of Florida, a personal injury attorney will charge between 10% and 45%, with the average being 33.33%. It’s worth mentioning that you can negotiate this amount if needed. There may also be costs related to the case that are not covered by this percentage, such as copies, filing fees, witness fees, and more.
