How much are attorney fees for a personal injury lawsuit in Massachusetts?
If you’ve suffered injuries from an accident and are trying to recover - you likely have a lot on your plate. Juggling your job, life and family with an injury can be stressful enough - let alone having the added worries of medical bills, dealing with insurance companies, and the prospect of needing to find the right lawyer for your case.
You might not know what step to take next, and might not know whether or not an accident attorney can help you. And, even if a personal injury lawyer can help you - can you afford them?
Hiring a Boston personal injury lawyer should not require you to pay anything upfront and should never require you to write the lawyer a check. You don’t pay Spada Law Group anything until we win your case in court or negotiate an acceptable settlement for you. If we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything.
You will never need to pull out your wallet, checkbook or credit card in our office when it comes to hiring an injury lawyer to represent your right to fully recover from your accident or injury in Massachusetts. Most - if not all - Massachusetts accident and injury lawyers work in this same way. Personal Injury lawyers and the client work out what’s known as a contingency fee agreement. This agreement documents the percentage of the settlement the attorney will receive as their fee for settling the case or winning in court.
The contingency fee percentages varies depending on the type of case and whether the case settles or must be litigated in court. Most contingent fee agreements however set the attorney fees to be in the range of 25%-35% of the gross amount recovered for the client.
It’s important to note that there are also frequently costs associated with a personal injury lawsuit in Massachusetts, and the lawyer usually advances these costs on behalf of the client. That means that the attorney pays the costs needed to file and pursue your lawsuit, and at the end of your case, if and only if you are successful, the lawyer will take their contingency fee PLUS any expenses they have advanced on your behalf.
Hiring a Boston injury attorney for your Massachusetts injury lawsuit is a clear win-win. Prior to signing anything, we always explain the contingency fee agreement, line by line, so you know exactly what percentage of the eventual recovery our firm will take when your case is successfully resolved. You’ll never be surprised, because everything will be agreed upon before you hire us.
