How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer?Return to FAQ Videos
It does not cost anything to hire a car accident attorney. Now, it’s true the lawyers need to get fees, and they can charge hourly or a flat rate, but in these types of cases, it’s a contingent fee. That’s to help those who don’t have money hire a lawyer so they can get recovery for their injuries, so what happens is if there is a recovery that lawyer will get a percentage of the recovery and that’s what happens in all of these types of cases. It’s called a contingent fee and at the end of the case, if there’s a recovery, that lawyer is paid.
