Personal Injury Lawyers usually work on a contingency fee (no win, no fee) basis, and charge similar fees. Some Personal Injury Lawyers have graduated fees, which means that as your lawsuit goes on, the fee increases. The initial fee may be low to attract clients, but as the lawsuit reaches each important step, the fee goes up, and can eventually end up much higher than the average fee for Personal Injury Lawyers in the area. When choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer, experience, reputation, service, and personal recommendation are all considerations which are much more important than the fee. If your Personal Injury Lawyer practices exclusively in that area of law, and has been in business for decades, and has a great reputation in the community, it is likely that they are worth their fee.
