This post will provide a comprehensive explanation of everything you need to know about lawyers’ fees and expenses in auto accident and personal injury lawsuits. We will explain: exactly how much money your lawyer will take out of your accident or personal injury settlement. To help you understand how this works we will provide examples of lawyer fees and expenses deducted from actual injury cases. Finally, we will go over what lawyers are NOT allowed to charge you for.
