The cost of your car accident attorney will depend on the amount of your settlement or jury award. At Miller Lathrop, we operate primarily on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay for our services unless and until your claim is successful. When you pay, it will be a percentage of your settlement for your accident.
The industry standard for personal injury attorneys is one third of the claim proceeds. This means that if your case settles out of court for $30,000, your attorney will earn $10,000. If your case goes to trial and you win a jury award of $9,000, your attorney will earn $3,000.
If your claim is not successful, you do not have to pay anything.
