How much will it cost me to hire an attorney for my brain injury in Florida?
Initially, it won’t cost you anything to hire an attorney because all personal injury attorneys in Florida work on a contingency fee. However, if the lawyer, after you consult him, believes that you have a case and he’s willing to pursue it is done on a contingency fee. The general fee in most places or locations in Florida is 33 and 1/3% for settlement without having to file a lawsuit. It then goes up to 40% if your case requires that a lawsuit be filed. However, your attorney should have a conference with you and tell you if in fact your case needs to go into litigation, all the reasons why, and get your approval in advance.
