I realize that after having your world turned upside down as a result of a car accident or injury case, the last thing you want to do after being hurt is pay a retainer fee. Your focus is on getting better, getting back to work and regaining your health. Most lawyers who handle accident and injury cases do not charge a retainer fee. Some, however, will expect you do come up with a deposit for costs up front. I am not one of those lawyers.
If an attorney in Miami tries to charge you anything up front or do your accident case for anything other than a contingency fee, you may want to consider speaking with someone else. If I believe in your case enough to take it on, I will be willing to accept a fee once we have successfully settled or won your case that is “contingent” with the compensation that you obtain.
So you are aware, personal injury lawyers generally charge a contingency fee of 33%-40% at the end of the case. We don’t charge hourly or retainer fees. If you have additional questions or want to schedule a free consultation, call our Miami office today at (305) 707-7345.
