Attorney Alex R. Hernandez Jr. charges a contingency fee and does not get paid if he loses the case.
What percentage does a lawyer get in a car wreck or personal injury case?
Our fees have pretty much been the same for the past two decades. 35% before filing a lawsuit and 40% after we file a lawsuit.
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee contract is a contract in which a fee is only received “contingent” on the amount won in trial, settled, or negotiated to the satisfaction of the client. There are many factors involved in determining whether a case should be settled. Normally the costs associated with taking a case to trial are very high and the risk involved in letting a jury decide the fate of the case are what have to be thought about in making the determination of whether to accept a settlement or take the case to jury trial. As a trial lawyer Alex R. Hernandez Jr. has taken many cases to trial and has won, and has lost, so he understands what a jury thinks and what they might do depending on venue, the city where the case is tried, what kind of case is being tried, and other factors such as likeability of the plaintiff and the amount of money in damages involved.
So in conclusion our car accident lawyer fees are only collected if we win, if we don’t win you don’t have to pay a dime.
