How much will an Indiana Automobile Accident Lawyer cost me?
Our accident lawyers handle all injury cases on a contingency fee. That means you only pay an attorney fee if we make a recovery for you. That fee is a percentage of the total recovery. Here’s how that breaks down…
- If your case is settled without filing a lawsuit: We charge one-third of the total recovery.
- If it is necessary to file a lawsuit: We raise our percentage to 40% once we file your lawsuit in court.
- Both rates are subject to rare exceptions.
Processing a claim is different than litigating a lawsuit. In personal injury law, the negotiation process often leads to a settlement without filing a lawsuit in court. In this case, there are no court hearings to attend, no depositions to prepare for and attend, and no written discovery to respond to or
Are there additional costs of a personal injury case?
At Garrison Law Firm, we typically advance the claim preparation costs for medical records on behalf of the client. If we file a lawsuit, we typically advance all litigation expenses. This includes expert witness fees.
Once the case is resolved, those advanced expenses must be repaid by you. This typically is paid out of settlement proceeds or from the collection of a jury verdict.
Under Indiana law, contingent fee agreements must be in writing. So, we will give you a contract to sign that explains in more detail the agreement for your case.
How long will my auto accident case take to settle?
How soon should I see a doctor after my car accident?
Sometimes, the onset of injury might be delayed. You could wake up a day or more later with significant pain. We suggest you see a doctor as soon as possible after you being to experience any pain or suffering due to a car accident.
