How much does a personal injury lawyer charge?

Understanding Personal Injury Attorney Fees:

Your Guide to Transparent Legal Representation


Personal Injury attorneys typically charge 33.33% of the gross settlement if the case is resolved prior to litigation. If the case requires a lawsuit the fee is 40% plus cost (i.e. expert witnesses, court cost, etc.). The fees and cost are only payable at the time we win your case. That means you have no risk to pursue a claim because if there is no win, you will not be charged any fees or cost. Read more below about how the Green Injury Law Firm fee is structured which provides extra benefits and protections to our clients.

100% Pressure Free & Confidential Consultations:

We understand that every personal injury case is unique, and you deserve personalized attention. That’s why the Green Injury Law Firm offers a 100% free and confidential consultation. During this consultation, you can discuss the specifics of your case, ask questions about our fee structure, and gain a clear understanding of the legal process. We will let you know during the initial consultation whether your case is worth your time (and ours). Most importantly, your consultation will be handled by an attorney, not an intake department. There are also no bait and switches at the Green injury Law Firm. The experienced attorney you meet with on day 1 is the attorney who will follow you throughout your case.

No Upfront Costs: A Risk-Free Legal Partnership

We operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no costs to you until we win your case. In the rare event we do not get you a settlement, you owe us nothing.

Contingency Fee Price Structure

For our pre-litigation settlements, our fee is set at 33.33% of the total settlement.

In the rare event that your case proceeds to court, our fee adjusts to 40% to account for the additional resources and time required to litigate effectively.

Green Injury Law Firm’s Unique Client-Focused Approach:

Our Promise to You: We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients receive the maximum compensation possible. To demonstrate our commitment, we have a unique clause in our contract: we promise never to earn more money than you, the client. If due to limited insurance funds, we are unable to secure you a large award, we promise to reduce our fee on our final settlement statement to ensure our fee is never larger than your net recovery.

Quite frankly, if a lawyer earns more then you do, they likely did not do their job very well.

With our contingency fee structure, you can rest assured that there are no upfront costs or financial risks involved when pursuing your personal injury claim. Our commitment to your best interests extends beyond just legal fees, as we prioritize your maximum recovery.
