Typically personal injury lawyer fees are based on a number of factors, which may include the time and energy spent on a case, the outcome of a case, the difficulty of a claim for the personal injury lawyer, the experience and prominence of the personal injury lawyer, and the costs associated with the case. There are several standard payment options a personal injury lawyer may offer his/her clients. These options include contingency fees, hourly rates, flat fees, and retainers. A contingency fee is a prior arrangement between personal injury lawyer and client in which the lawyer receives a set percentage of the amount of recovery awarded to the plaintiff in a case. In most cases, monetary recovery is obtained through settlement, mediation, arbitration or trial. Generally, when a personal injury lawyer takes a case on a contingency fee, a client has no obligation to pay his/her lawyer a fee unless the case is successfully resolved.
