What Makes Hiring an Attorney More Affordable?

When you’re the victim of a personal injury, your life can change in an instant. Whether it’s due to a slip and fallvehicle accidentmedical malpractice, or another accident, you could be facing the prospect of lost wages or permanent disability, mounting medical bills, and an uncertain future for you and your family.

You may be wondering if you can even afford to hire a lawyer, and insurance companies and other well-funded interests may be bullying you into accepting a lowball settlement that won’t come close to compensating you fully for your injuries.

At Farah & Farah, we are proud to put your needs first. We have been fighting for the victims of personal injuries in Florida and Georgia for over 40 years and have recovered over $2 billion for our clients.

We are passionate about doing what’s right. Call us 24/7 at 844-725-0832 for your free case review.

What Is a Contingency Fee Agreement?

When a lawyer works on contingency, it means that clients don’t pay them unless they win a settlement. When you’ve suffered injuries due to someone else’s carelessness, you shouldn’t have to worry about paying upfront for the best legal representation. We will use our time and resources to fight for you, and you won’t owe us anything unless we win your case.

What Is the Benefit of Hiring Lawyers That Work on a Contingency Basis?

When you choose a lawyer who works on a contingency basis, you will pay no retainer and no hourly fees. We are confident that our personal injury attorneys are the very best available in Florida and Georgia, and we don’t think a client’s ability to pay large fees upfront should be required for them to get justice. By working on a contingency basis, we are willing to bet our resources and reputation on our ability to get you the settlement you deserve.

Are There Other Possible Personal Injury Lawyer Fees?

As your case progresses, you may incur additional required expenses that must be paid to advance your legal action. These fees may include:

  • Depositions
  • Expert witness fees
  • Court filing fees
  • Investigators
  • Medical reports
  • Police reports
  • Postage and copying fees
  • Trial exhibits
  • Other related costs

Unlike some other firms, we will not charge you upfront for these additional fees. At Farah & Farah, we want you to focus on what matters most: healing.

How Much Does a Lawyer Take From a Settlement?

Typical attorney fee percentages range between 30-40% and may depend upon whether the case is settled pretrial or an award is made after a trial. Usually, in a contingency fee arrangement, your lawyer will deduct an agreed-upon percentage for legal services from your net settlement or the amount you receive after case expenses are subtracted.

If an attorney tries to take their percentage before case expenses are subtracted, it is within your rights to push back against this tactic and consider seeking new counsel if they persist.
