Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer Explains Personal Injury Lawyer Cost

Every year hundreds of thousands of people suffer personal injuries due to someone else’s negligence. Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer goes over the process.

Every year hundreds of thousands of people suffer personal injuries due to someone else’s negligence.  Some of those people file a lawsuit and are awarded a financial recovery for their medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages related to the injury. However, many people who suffer a personal injury are hesitant to file a claim because they are concerned about the legal fees they will incur. They don’t know how fees for personal injury cases are charged and are often worried about what they will owe if the case is not successful. 

There is a tremendous amount of work required for even the least complicated personal injury cases. They take time, money and discernment to prepare for trial. Attorneys and their teams must investigate the accident or injury, research relevant cases law, determine liability, collect evidence, and consult experts. Working on your case will require phone calls, drafting and filing documents, sending letters, and strategizing. The legal team has to know your case inside and out, all of the intricacies, so that they can fully articulate your injury, damages, and value of your claim. Negotiating with the opposing counsel in an attempt to reach a settlement may be ongoing and time-consuming also, as is preparing for a trial.

Some of the other expenses that may go into a personal injury case are:

  • Procuring police reports and medical records
  • Hiring investigators
  • Calling witnesses
  • Consulting with medical or other experts
  • Attending negotiation meetings
  • Court filing fees
  • Postage
  • Conducting depositions
  • Preparing exhibits for trial
  • Keeping you updated and provide you with legal advice.
