Houston, Texas -
Rose Sanders Law Firm, based in Houston, TX, has released a blog post that clarifies that personal injury lawyers will not earn more money than their clients. The article separates facts from myths with regards to this common question that people ask when they are hiring a personal injury attorney. While most people have the belief that their lawyer will make more money than them, the article points out that the lawyer will only get a certain percentage of what the client will get in the settlement. Furthermore, an experienced lawyer will be able to maximize what the client will receive by providing evidence effectively and by negotiating with the insurance firms.
More about this article can be gleaned from https://www.rosesanderslaw.com/blog/2021/11/why-your-personal-injury-lawyer-will-not-make-more-money-than-you-on-your-case-fact-vs-myth/.
Erica Rose, co-founder and partner of Rose Sanders Law Firm, says, “Before you decide to hire a personal injury attorney, it’s important to know how much they would make representing your case. It is important to note that contingency fees are common for lawyers because it means not getting paid until your client does, thus incentivizing them to work hard on each case. Hence, you have a better chance of being compensated for your lawsuit or settlement earnings. Check out our blog post to know more about this.”
The first myth that the article wants to break is the common belief that a personal injury lawyer will make much more money than the client if they win the case. The truth is that such cases are usually taken on a contingency basis. This means that contingency fees will only be paid to the lawyer if they settle out of court or they win the case. They lawyer will usually get a fee of around 25 to 40 percent of the total settlement or compensation. This will vary depending on a number of factors, such as when insurance is involved in the case.

Another myth is the belief that these contingency fees can’t be negotiated. The client can negotiate the contingency fees although the chances of success will depend on what the lawyer will have to do in order to win the case. The more complicated the case, it is only reasonable for a lawyer to ask for higher contingency fees.
Another typical assumption is that lawyers will overcharge clients in personal injury cases. Since these cases are often accepted on a contingency basis and there are no upfront fees, lawyers will get a smaller percentage of the payment received if the case is won.
And finally, some people assume that personal injury attorneys will not help in negotiating insurance settlements. Insurance companies will usually attempt to settle for the least amount of money and they often have the experience to out-negotiate someone, which means that individuals without an attorney will usually get less than what they actually deserve. On the other hand, a personal injury lawyer has the experience and knowledge to negotiate with the insurance firm and will appropriately adjust the amount based on the medical and psychological needs of the client.
