What are Car Accident/Injury Lawyer Fees?

Attorneys’ fees are what a lawyer charges for handling, investigation, and negotiating your claim. The compensation a lawyer receives for legal representation can be billed in one of three ways: contingency fee, hourly rate, or flat fee. Most injury claims are handled on a contingency fee basis.

Typical attorneys’ fees vary based upon the type of claim or case being pursued. For example, the average injury lawyer or law firm for car accidents and personal injury cases charges between 33% and 40% of the recovery or settlement. Depending on the complexity of the case, those rates can increase.

The average Phoenix-area personal injury law firm may increase its fees should your claim require formal litigation. Other firms might also charge you attorneys’ fees if your case fails to earn a settlement or loses at trial.

No Fee Promise

If you don’t get a settlement, you pay us nothing – nothing at all. That is the Hastings and Hastings No Fee Promise. If there is no recovery, there is no fee. We even waive the costs!

Attorneys’ Fees of 1/3 or More Don’t Seem Fair

We agree. We believe that accident victims have been through enough and deserve as much of their settlement as possible. At Hastings & Hastings, we don’t charge 1/3 of your settlement. Our discount fee puts more money in your pocket so that you can get back to what’s important after an accident – providing for yourself and your family.

Our Discount Fee Means More Money For You

Our firm handles all of its personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that we earn attorneys’ fees only if your case is successfully resolved. Our fee is contingent upon the successful resolution of your claim. If your case fails to earn a settlement or loses at trial, then you owe us no attorneys’ fees. It’s as simple as that.

In addition, our attorneys’ fees never increase. While some firms will push you to file a lawsuit for your claim so that their fee can be increased to 40% or more, our firm collects the same discount fee whether you go to court or not. You can rest assured that our firm will only recommend litigating your case if it is in your best interest.
