If I hire you to handle an injury claim, how much will you charge me?

Most injury cases are handled on a contingency-fee basis. This means that the lawyer handles the costs of the case, asking for no funds "up front," but then takes his fee and expenses from the money he recovers for the client. A typical contingency fee is 1/3 after expenses (there are exceptions, such as in medical malpractice cases). For example, if the lawyer spends $100.00 of his own money to win the client $1,000.00, the lawyer recovers his $100.00 first, leaving $900.00. The client takes 2/3 ($600.00) and the lawyer takes his 1/3 fee ($300.00). Also, keep in mind that the lawyer has a duty to make sure that certain of the the client's debts relating to the injury are paid from the funds awarded. So in the example I just gave, if there was a $50.00 doctor bill left over from the day of the injury, the lawyer would usually make sure that that bill got paid out of the client's 2/3 share of the award.
