For serious personal injury cases, like traumatic brain injury cases, I charge what is known as a “contingency” fee. A contingency fee is equal to an agreed-upon percentage of the recovery in the case (the settlement amount or verdict amount). If there is no recovery in the case, my fee is zero. The exact percentage fee I charge depends on the specifics of the case. Once I have an opportunity to evaluate your matter and think about it, I will tell you what percent fee I will be willing to agree to in your case.
