Your Personal Injury Attorney questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

A personal injury lawyer typically charges 30% to 40% of whatever you win in a settlement. This type of compensation is called a contingency fee and provides much more peace of mind than out-of-pocket hourly or flat rates. Some firms use a sliding scale that reduces the percentage charged as the award goes up.

Personal injury lawyer fees go towards:

  • Court and filing costs
  • Travel expenses
  • Copying and mailing documents
  • Consulting and research

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer represents clients who have been injured by a person, business, or government. This includes physical injuries as well as reputation, psychological harm, or economic damage. This type of lawyer must have a bachelor's degree and law degree. Most states also require passing the bar exam before the lawyer can practice law or take on clients.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

You may need a personal injury lawyer if you have suffered injuries through no fault of your own, whether they're physical or otherwise. Common case types include:

  • Car or truck accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent security
  • Defamation
  • Unlawful imprisonment
  • Wrongful death

Can I fire my personal injury lawyer?

You can fire your lawyer at any time if you feel they are not representing you properly. Though getting a new lawyer may seem daunting or uncomfortable, it may be worth it if your current lawyer does not:

  • Return your calls or messages
  • Seem familiar with or concerned about your case when you do talk
  • Communicate or update you regarding your case

Is it worth getting a personal injury lawyer?

Getting a personal injury lawyer is worth it if you have been wrongfully injured. Compensation varies from case to case, but many clients receive substantial rewards that help make up for hospital visits, loss of work, or psychological care. Make sure to gather evidence before speaking to a personal injury lawyer so they can give you an accurate estimate.

Joshua helped explain the process and was very communicative to me on my case. It didn't matter the time or the place, Mr. Winegar would always drop what he was doing if he could and gave me his complete attention and help. I was always kept up to date of my case. He always kept me updated on my case and I never felt that I was by myself. I always thought I had someone in my team and on my side being a voice for me. He helped me get a very great result and he is someone I recommend highly if you need a true goodhearted soul who will represent you the way you deserve!
