33% and the Insurance Companies Pay Our Fees, Not You.
Personal injury attorneys typically charge 33% of whatever they are able to collect from insurance companies, if they settle before filing a lawsuit, and typically 40% after filing a lawsuit. The fees are usually calculated based on settlement value, negotiated medical payment reductions, and costs expensed pursuing the claim.
Sometimes the case type may affect the fees. For instance, the typical medical malpractice case is worked at 40% contingency and 50% if filed. This is typical because medical malpractice claims are significantly more expensive, time consuming, and require a higher professional skill set that other personal injury cases.
