Will I be able to afford a lawyer to represent me on a wrongful death claim? How much will it cost?
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means the attorney gets paid only if you get a recovery on your lawsuit. Most often, the amount of the fee will be a percentage of your recovery. The fee percentage and the handling of costs and expenses to represent you will all be set out in a fee agreement when the attorney takes your case. Generally, if you don’t win anything on your case, you won’t owe anything to your attorney.
