What will it Cost Me to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

If you have suffered a personal injury due to a car accident or other mishap caused by negligence, you will most likely need to enlist the help of a personal injury lawyer. An attorney will assist in filing a personal injury lawsuit to enable you to have a fair chance of recovering the damages you are owed.

Hiring a personal injury attorney can raise a few questions for the injured, including how much it is going to cost. At Shaw Cowart LLP, our firm always offers a free consultation for our personal injury clients. If we mutually agree to work your claim and lawsuit, we will handle your case on a contingency basis. You only pay our firm if we succeed in winning an award, or judgment, for your claim. The payment will be an agreed-upon percentage of the award.

Advantages of a Contingency Agreement for a Personal Injury Lawsuit

A contingency fee agreement offers many advantages to the injured client, including:

  • Affordability – many people would not be able to afford lawyers’ fees.
  • Fair playing field – insurance companies and big corporations often employ in-house attorneys that are paid on an hourly basis. When you hire an attorney to represent your rights, you have equal opportunity to develop a legitimate case for your injury lawsuit.
  • Motivation for the lawyer – when a lawyer is hired on a contingency basis, the lawyer remains motivated to work in a diligent manner to have a positive outcome for both you and the law firm.
  • Truthfulness – if Shaw Cowart LLP feels that your claim will not succeed, we will advise you to seek a second opinion. It would not make sense for our firm to pursue a personal injury lawsuit we did not believe we could win since we would not get paid.
