How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost in Rockville?
If you are injured in an accident caused by negligence, you might want to pursue legal action but fear that you cannot afford an attorney’s legal fees. There is no need to worry: Our personal injury attorneys in Rockville charge their legal fees on a contingency basis. That means we will fund all expenses for your lawsuit and recover that money if you get compensation.
We only get paid if we win your case. If we don’t get you compensation, we cannot ask you to pay for our services or reimburse expenses. In Maryland, contingency fees are between 30-40% of the final settlement. The percentage will be determined by whether a case is easily settled or goes to trial. If it goes to trial, the contingency fee is likely to be higher.
Contingency fee agreements make it possible for all accident victims to seek compensation. If you don’t have funds, do not fear talking to a lawyer after an accident. Since there are no upfront fees, you can and should pursue legal action against the person who caused you harm.
When you arrange a contingency fee agreement with a Rockville personal injury attorney, the agreement should:
- Be in writing
- Be signed by both you and the attorney
- Detail how the contingency fee will be agreed on at each stage of the case (settlement, trial, or appeal)
- Detail the expenses that will be recovered and whether they will be deducted before or after calculating the contingency fee
