Can I Afford a Lawyer?

July 31, 2020 in Personal Injury Litigation

Take Advantage of the Free Consultation

Personal injury attorneys typically offer a free initial consultation. This is your opportunity to find out whether or not you have a case, get your questions answered, and find out what your case is worth. It’s also an opportunity to learn about the attorney – how many cases they have handled, whether they’ve handled a case like yours, and their general experience and background. Finally, you also want to discuss how they bill for their time. Assuming that they work on a contingency fee basis, you want to understand exactly how their fee will be calculated. 

Other Costs

Before hiring a San Luis Obispo personal injury lawyer, you also want to understand what other costs you may be responsible for. For example:

  • Court reporters
  • Court filing fees
  • Expert witnesses
  • Copies and other materials

These costs can add up over the life of a case. You also want to understand whether you will have to pay these out of pocket, or whether they will be deducted from any compensation you recover.
