Will it cost me any money to bring a Florida auto accident case?Return to FAQ Videos
No. Typically, it will not cost you any money. In a Florida accident case, what you typically do is you don’t charge by the hour or you don’t charge a flat fee. What lawyers do is they charge a contingent fee. That means, you pay nothing unless the lawyer gets you something. The reason for this is a lot of people can’t afford a lawyer and people obviously get injured and they don’t have any money. This type of arrangement helps those who don’t have the resources to pay for counsel in a accident case to retain counsel, and then a percentage is taken out of the ultimate proceeds that are ever given to the injured person by an insurance company or a judge or jury.
