Personal Injury FAQ


How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

The short answer is "nothing." You pay no upfront expenses and nothing at all unless we win your case. Fees are paid out of the final settlement or award, not from your pocket.

Our lawyers know how difficult life is in the wake of a severe injury, and we know you're facing serious expenses. We make sure hiring an attorney isn't one of them. We work on a contingency fee agreement, which means that you only pay if we can recover for you. From the first consultation to the very end of your case, we will front all of the expenses—including man-hours we put in and fees of experts that we consult. We are only paid if we win your case, and our payment comes from the total recovery that we make—not directly out of your own pocket.

We Forward Litigation Costs & Expenses

Building an effective personal injury lawsuit takes time and resources. We are willing to do what it takes to help our clients win, and that includes forwarding the costs of litigation. When you work with our personal injury attorneys, you don't have to worry about hiring expert witnesses or accident reconstruction specialists who will build your case. You don't have to think about the man-hours it will take to present your case in negotiations or to a judge and jury. You don't have to wonder what it will cost to hire a personal injury lawyer.

Instead of worrying about money, you should focus on healing. That's what our fee arrangement allows you to do.

We are leading trial lawyers known nationwide for securing record results in the most challenging cases. Our team of attorneys has secured over $10 billion for the injured and wronged. We have done it all without charging our clients exorbitant out-of-pocket fees, but rather by making at-fault parties pay for their wrongdoing. After all, isn't that the point of seeking justice in civil court? Of offering a way to right the wrongs caused by negligence and wrongdoing? Our lawyers believe it to be true. Our results speak for themselves.

We Also Offer Several Other Affordable Fee Agreements

We at Arnold & Itkin understand that each of our clients will be coming from a different place in their life, and so need a unique fee arrangement to suit their needs. In an effort to be flexible, we have made it possible for our clients to choose from several different fee arrangements.

The first is what is known as a "flat fee arrangement." In these cases, we will offer a single flat fee for our client. This will not be contingent on how many hours we work, our success, or any other factors.

The second agreement is straight hourly rates, where our clients will have a single fee they get billed per hour. This may be the best option in situations that are relatively straightforward. If we do not believe there are going to be an enormous amount of hours, you may be able to save money by merely agreeing to a by-the-hour agreement; this can shave off a considerable amount of money from the final bill. This, however, is not the choice for everyone. In cases that will require a lot of manpower or an undetermined amount of hours, hourly rates may not be the wisest.
