Clients who potentially have a cause of action to recover damages for personal injuries ask many questions during the course of a case. One of the first frequently asked questions concerns the cost of a lawyer in a personal injury case.
At Powell Law, a consultation with our experienced attorneys is FREE! For 113 years, the attorneys at Powell Law have represented Pennsylvania personal injury victims. Properly litigating a personal injury case so that our clients make a complete and total recovery of their losses is always the first and foremost priority of the experienced personal injury attorneys at Powell Law.
Powell Law takes personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that the fee is contingent on the outcome of the case. Powell Law agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the amount paid to the client if the outcome is successful. That is, if our client prevails and the court awards damages, Powell Law’s legal fee is paid from this award. If the case is lost and our client does not prevail, Powell Law will not receive any money for fees, and the client will not be charged for any of Powell Law’s work in litigating the case.
The fee percentage is usually 33 to 40 percent based on whether the case settles or proceeds to trial. Keep in mind that clients are required, win or lose, to pay the costs of the case. These costs include copies of records and reports; photocopies and other office expenses; legal research costs; court costs; filing fees; fees for depositions; and fees for investigators and expert witnesses.
