Most reputable personal injury attorneys offer free consultations and work on a contingency fee basis. This means that a client will not need to worry about any out of pocket expenses during or after the trial. Personal injury law firms will pay all of the expenses for building the case upfront, including medical records, expert consultations, and more. Only if the firm wins the case and is able to make a financial recovery for their client do they receive a previously agreed-upon percentage of the won compensation.
This is an important philosophy in the field of personal injury law; structuring payment on a contingency fee basis allows the injured party to focus on healing and recovery, rather than stressing about how to pay for the cost of a lawyer on top of their current expenses. Some court fees are set up by the state, but across the board, most clients of personal injury attorneys do not have to pay a penny toward their case unless/until their attorney wins.
It’s important to make sure you understand how and when your attorney expects to be paid so that you can both prepare for the circumstances. Questions regarding fees and payment upon contingency can be discussed in the initial consultation between an injured party and their attorney. If you have any questions regarding how an attorney expects to be paid, or suspect a law firm you have consulted with may not be above board in regarding the payment process, seek an outside opinion from another personal injury attorney.
Personal injury victims and their families should not have to worry about how to pay their legal bills and should instead focus on returning to a sense of daily normalcy and peace as their attorney works on their behalf to bring about justice for their situation.

It's another Quick Question from AskTheLawyers.com™. Do you know what to do if you think you can't afford a personal injury lawyer? This is what New Jersey attorney Kathleen Reilly has to say.
Well, here at Brady Brady & Reilly, all cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, and what that means is you don't pay us unless we make a recovery. We pay all the expenses of any case upfront, which is medical records, whether it's experts, things of that sort, and then we're reimbursed at the end of the case, but the fees are set forth by a New Jersey court rule, and the client does not pay us if we're not successful. But we're usually successful, and we're very proud of that fact and we would be paid at the end of the case, so there's never any payment by the client.
