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.

How do I choose a personal injury lawyer?

Start by browsing our list of personal injury lawyers, then:

  • Compare at least three free estimates.
  • Explore reviews and previous cases on Thervo and Google.
  • Choose a firm that is licensed and experienced.
  • Choose a lawyer you feel comfortable with and who seems interested in helping you.
  • Verify their credentials.
  • Get a written estimate before any casework begins.
  • Follow a payment schedule instead of making large payments up front.

After asking questions and verifying credentials, hire the best lawyer in your area.

What questions should I ask personal injury lawyers??

When looking for personal injury lawyers near you, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been with your current practice?
  • Have you passed the bar?
  • Does your caseload allow you to take on my case?
  • How many cases like mine have you won?
  • How likely is it for my case to succeed?
  • Do you have any possible conflict of interest?
  • Do you charge hourly, or do you have a flat fee?
  • Will you give me a written estimate for this case?
