Car Accident Attorney Fees in Georgia
Many people who are injured in a car accident don’t hire an attorney because they are afraid they can’t afford one. In Georgia, no lawyer should charge you for representation on any personal injury case. These cases should be taken on a “contingency fee basis,” meaning we only get paid when you do.
How Legal Fees Work
A personal injury lawyer works on a contingency fee basis. This means that the lawyer’s pay is contingent on the amount of money he or she is able to recover for you. In Georgia, the standard attorney’s fee for personal injury cases is 35 to 40 percent, depending on the type of case.
The Importance of an Experienced Attorney
Many insurance companies will offer you a small settlement very early on in your case in the hopes that you will not hire an attorney. They will try to take advantage of the fact that you may not know what your case is actually worth.
Insurance companies know the value of your claim significantly increases once you hire a lawyer. Many of our clients who turned down the initial offer made by the insurance company ended up settling their case for more than three times what the insurance company offered!!
