So you were involved in a car wreck or injured in a slip and fall. You want to retain a personal injury attorney but are uneasy because you think you can’t afford one? Unlike other specializations, personal injury attorneys generally do not charge an hourly rate, but instead, work on a contingency fee basis.
A contingent fee agreement for personal injury attorneys in Texas usually is 33% of the total settlement should the case resolve prior to litigation. However, if a case requires litigation and a lawsuit to be filed, the rate increases to a flat 40%. Some attorneys vary and may charge higher, but at Mizani Law Firm its either the 33% or the 40%. What does this all mean to you? It means that your attorney only gets paid if YOU get paid.
At Mizani Law Firm we talk and walk with you through every step of the personal injury process. We don’t file a lawsuit unless you give us permission to, and we don’t ask you to pay for up front costs to cover expenses. In fact, at Mizani Law Firm, we pay for all costs associated with your case so you don’t have to worry about paying out of pocket. These costs are ultimately reimbursed through your settlement with the insurance company.
A contingency fee agreement allows injured clients to solely focus on their well being and on their treatment. When injured, the last thing you need to worry about is how you will pay attorney fees. Instead, you should focus on your medical treatment and making sure you are back to 100% as you were prior to the injury.
