How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

The cost of hiring a Personal Injury attorney can vary between cases and firms. Many Personal Injury attorneys charge different amounts based on location and the firms’ history.

However, many lawyers, like the Law Office of J.J. Talbott, charge on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that there are no fees or costs to you unless you recover a settlement. Then, the attorney fee is based on a percentage of that settlement. In Florida, the maximum contingency fee in a personal injury case is 1/3 of the recovery, pre-suit. If a lawsuit is filed, then the fee increases to 40% of the recovery amount.
