How Much Does a Florida Trucking Accident Lawyer Charge?
When you’re involved in a trucking accident, both the incident and its aftermath can take a heavy toll on you. Accident victims often face emotional, physical, and financial hardships that can last for months, years, or even a lifetime. When you are already dealing with medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, the thought of lawyer fees can be intimidating and may discourage you from enlisting an accident attorney.
At Farah & Farah, our contingency fee model means you won’t have to pay anything unless we win. We don’t think financial hardship should prevent you from getting the partnership and guidance you need to protect your rights. Contact a truck accident attorney at Farah & Farah today, and see how we can support your fight for justice.
What is a Contingency Fee Model?
At Farah and Farah we operate with a contingency fee model. That means you don’t pay for any legal fees unless you are awarded a settlement. We use our experience and financial resources to help you get the justice you need.
When we take on your case, we assume all the risk by providing reliable representation while advancing all costs associated with your case. You have already endured enough hardship after your accident. Added costs shouldn’t be part of the equation.
Other Potential Truck Accident Lawyer Fees
As your case progresses, you may incur additional expenses that must be paid in order to advance your legal action. Examples of these expenses, which would be covered through our contingency fee arrangement, include:
- Expert witness fees
- Filing fees
- Medical records
- Police reports
- Trial exhibits
In typical arrangements, attorneys will deduct their 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, you should push back against this tactic and consider seeking new counsel if they persist.
Average Settlement For A Semi-Truck Accident
It’s difficult to assess an “average” settlement for a semi-truck accident because many factors are involved in the decision. For example, the amount will vary based on the extent of your financial, emotional, and physical injuries as well as the amount of insurance coverage that is available.
For a variety of reasons, including higher minimum coverage requirements for semi-trucks, it is common for semi-trucks to carry insurance policies valued at $1 million or more. Multiple insurance policies may apply to your accident as well. In some cases, both the semi-truck cab and the attached trailer could have separate policies, each valued at $1 million or more.
With this much money at stake, trucking companies and their insurance carriers are very motivated to reduce the damages owned for any potential settlement or judgement. That’s why it’s important to work with attorneys who can help you survive financial hardship and protect your rights during any extended negotiations.
