How Much Do Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?

The personal injury lawyers at our Allbee Law Firm will never ask for upfront payments on personal injury cases. Our firm is compensated through a contingency fee, which means our law firm is paid a percentage of the total amount of compensation we help you collect. Also, we only get compensated if we win your case.

Pre-Litigation

If our lawyers help you resolve your claim before filing a lawsuit, the firm will receive 33.33% of the total settlement amount.

Litigation

There will still be opportunities to settle your personal injury case even if we have to file suit to get the insurance company’s attention. Filing a suit and the steps that follow include quite a bit of work. For this reason, the attorney fees increase to 40% if your case is settled after a lawsuit is filed but before a trial begins.

Trial

Most cases don’t go all the way to trial, but some do. As you can imagine, it takes a significant amount of preparation and work to present a personal injury case to a jury. Because of the additional work and risk, attorney fees increase to 45% if your case goes all the way to trial.

Case Expenses

Allbee Law Firm also advances court costs and case expenses for the personal injury victims we represent. Court costs and case expenses are separate from attorney fees and are reimbursed to the firm from the total amount of compensation awarded to you.

What If I Can't Afford To Pay For Medical Treatment?

Some medical providers will provide medical treatment for injuries caused by an accident and then wait to be paid until your case is resolved. We are able to help almost all of our clients get the treatment they need without paying for everything out of their own pocket.

Recoverable Damages In A Forest Hill Injury Case

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the personal injuries you sustained and the unique factors of your case. For example, a person with minor injuries will obviously receive less compensation than a case involving wrongful death or a severe, life-altering injury.

If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another person or company, Texas law permits you to receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, physical impairment, and other types of damages or loss. It’s very important for you to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer so that you don’t leave any money on the table.

How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take?

We repeatedly tell our clients that every case is unique. However, there are certain patterns that can be seen in many accident cases.

Step 1- Finish Medical Treatment

It’s important to know the full extent of the harm that our clients have incurred before agreeing to settle a claim. It would be foolish to settle a case for $20,000 one day and then find out that the client needs a $30,000 surgery the following day.

So, generally speaking, we will not settle a car accident or other type of personal injury case until you’ve recovered from your injuries or we have a clear understanding of the full extent of injuries and damages.

Step 2 - Gather The Remaining Evidence And Records

Once you’re done with receiving physical therapy and other medical treatment, we will order a final, official copy of your medical bills and records. The bills and records will be used as evidence to show how badly you were injured. Typically, it takes 2-5 weeks to receive the final medical records once you are released.

Step 3 - Create A Demand Package

Next, we create and send a demand package. The package includes everything that helps prove the defendant’s liability and the harm you’ve suffered.

Demand Packages can include items such as your car accident report, videos, pictures of your vehicle, witness statements, medical bills and records, proof of lost wages, etc.

Step 4 - Negotiations

Once the insurance company receives the demand package, they will have a little more than two weeks to respond.

Insurance companies usually give a lousy first settlement offer, so we rarely recommend that you accept it. At that point, we will go back and forth with the insurance adjuster until we receive their top offer.

This negotiation process can take several days to several weeks, depending on the insurance adjuster, the caseload he or she is carrying, and their communication frequency.

Step 5 - Settle Or File A Personal Injury Lawsuit

At this point, you will speak with your accident lawyer. If the top offer is fair, we’ll recommend that you settle. Once the decision is made, it can take a few weeks for us to get the final check in your hand.

Due to backlogged courts throughout Texas, it can take 2-3 years before your case goes before a judge and jury. However, we prefer to bring the fight to the insurance companies by taking a proactive approach that usually results in a settlement without having to go to court.
