Do All Car Accident Lawyers Charge the Same Amount?

Do All Lawyers Charge a Third for Car Accident Cases?
Wrongful Death, Car Accident and injury lawyers typically represent a client on a contingency fee. That means the client does not pay as they go; instead the lawyer gets a percentage of the gross amount recovered for the client.

  • Most Lawyers Charge 33.33% of the gross amount recovered if the case settles without filing a lawsuit.
  • Some TV lawyers try to gouge clients by charging as much as 40% pre-suit.

At Christopher Simon Attorney at Law, we approach fees differently. 

For cases that settle in negotiations without the necessity of filing a lawsuit:
our attorneys fees are 29% instead of the traditional 33%. This is a savings of $4,000 to the customer on a $100,000 settlement.

This results in a substantial savings to our clients and more accurately reflects fair compensation for our efforts as attorneys.

We still charge 40% for litigated cases because there is a quantum increase in the amount of work that goes into litigated files. Remember that you case is always your case and not the attorney's case so the decision on whether to settle or to go into litigation is up to you. It is important to note that for all lawyers practicing injury and wrongful death, the fee goes up when the lawsuit is filed, not just when it goes to trial. Keep that in mind as a consumer.

If you have questions about attorneys fees, feel free to contact the firm.
Client Reviews
My wife and I were hit by a tractor trailer in 2014. After extensive research online, we were deeply impressed with the various reviews we read on Google and Avvo and chose Chris to represent us. We could not have a made a better decision. Chris and his firm treated us like we were their only clients, soothed our worries, and instantly gained our trust. Chris settled both of our cases for more than we expected.
A co-worker of my wife recommended Chris to us. At the very beginning Chris showed that he cared and his knowledge is priceless. Going through this process can be aggravating but Chris did a great job guiding me through this and was always available to answer my questions. Chris fought to get what I deserved even though at times I wanted to give up. Tracy
I want to express my deepest sense of gratitude and appreciation to Attorney Chris Simon & Attorney Chris Carsten, for all the hard work that they put forth into my case (car accident filed after being hit by drunk driver). Their attention to detail and professionalism far surpasses their firm's reputation. Because of their diligence and dedication to their craft, they were able to bring my case to a successful close, one that I could live with. You will not find a better team for your case. Should I have a need for their services again in the future, or know of anyone looking for a top notch Auto Accident Law Firm, I would not hesitate to recommend them!!!! Elle
Wow...Chris is a very good attorney. Me and my son was in a very bad car accident an I was clueless on how to handle the situation. It's very hard to find an attorney who allows you to contact them personally instead of you contacting their asst. I was told that I didn't have a case because the hosiptal put a lien on my acct. Chris prove different and I was able to file my case with the insurance company. The process was very quickly and Im glad I selected the right attorney..Thanks Chris A Car Accident client
Chris is a great lawyer and the most people friendly attorney I have ever delt with. He handled my case with great attention to detail and did so in a very short period of time. He is very consice, efficient, patient and understanding. He has a strong passion for what he does and he does it well. I recommend Chris Simon as legal representation for anyone who has suffreed damages or a loss at the negligence of others. He really cares about you and your case. A Car Accident client
