Contingency Fees For Personal Injury Cases

After suffering an injury at the hands of someone else, it's important to obtain financial compensation so that you can cover your medical bills — and receive some measure of justice. Getting restitution can be difficult, however. Insurance companies and their legal teams are quick to stand in the way.

We've recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, and stand ready to help you, too. Your case will be handled by a lawyer, not an assistant like at some firms. With offices in Waterbury, we serve throughout Connecticut.

How Much Does Legal Representation Cost?

It's common for many injury victims to worry about how much legal representation will cost. In Connecticut, a set of laws governs how much attorneys are able to charge.

Most cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that the lawyer will generally collect no remuneration unless your case is successful. And, in the event of a successful case, there is a limit to the funds that attorneys can claim as payment.

Under the Connecticut Statute governing lawyer fees in personal injury cases, fees are typically limited to 33 1/3 percent. There is a reduced fee structure for large cases. The client will be responsible for the costs incurred, which are paid in advance by the attorney.
