How much will my attorney make off my settlement?
Usually, a personal injury lawyer will take one-third of your final settlement offer as compensation for their work. For example, a settlement of $10,000 would result in a $3,333 payment to your lawyer and $6,667 for you to take home. Lawyers who work on contingency only get paid if they win you money. Your attorney’s fees will never prevent you from paying for your medical bills or other accident-related necessities, and by hiring an attorney, you increase your chances of getting a higher settlement offer than you could alone.
