What We Charge on Injury Cases
Personal injury cases are handled by the Law Office of Doug Goyen. Personal injuries can occur in almost any type of negligence case, including car accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, premises liability cases, workplace accidents, and other personal injury cases. In some personal injury cases, the victim is killed as a result of the negligence of another and there is a wrongful death claim.
Attorney Goyen has decades of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases and obtaining compensation for those who have been injured or for the deceased’s family, estate, and beneficiaries. You need a lawyer who has handled cases involving serious personal injury, catastrophic injury, and wrongful death. Call us at (972) 599 4100 or use our website contact form to get in touch.
With personal injury and auto accident cases we charge a contingency fee. A contingency fee is a percentage of what we are able to recover on your behalf in your case and is “contingent” on us being able to recover. If we don’t recover, we don’t get paid and you owe us nothing. This means that the lawyer’s interests are the same as your interests. Unlike an hourly contract, where the attorney’s incentive is to bill as many hours as possible regardless of the outcome of the case, the incentive of the contingency fee is to obtain a good result. The better the attorney does for you, the better he does for himself. And if the attorney recovers nothing, you owe nothing for the attorney fees. There is no fee unless and until you win!
In injury cases, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. There is no need to pay anything upfront. The lawyer is only paid if they are successful in your case.
The Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.04(d) Fees, defines a contingency fee as a “fee contingent on the outcome of the matter for which the service is rendered.” This means the attorney cannot collect the fee unless a certain result is obtained. In personal injury cases this means that if the lawyer is unable to recover any money in your case, the lawyer is not paid.
Personal injury attorneys charge a percentage of the amount recovered for your claims. In practice, this transforms into a performance-based contract. The better your attorney performs in your case, the more money they make. This aligns your lawyer’s interests with yours in personal injury cases. In Texas, a contingency fee is determined by the lawyer you hire (some charge a higher percentage), but it is typically 1/3 of the amount recovered for your injury case and can rise to 40% if a lawsuit is required.
Contact our office at 972 599 4100 to discuss your case for further details regarding the contingency fee for your situation.
