New Lawyer Fees in Injury and Car Accident Claims (Ultimate Guide)

This is the ultimate guide on personal injury attorney fees and costs in 2021 (and beyond). We’ll look at lawyer fees on many of my settlements for car accidents, slip and falls, and other injury cases.

You will see how much each case settled for, and how much the client got in his/her pocket.

Moreover, I explain how much lawyers take from a settlement.

You’ll also see costs that attorney’s cannot charge for. Knowing this information can stop your lawyer from overcharging you. And it may put a lot more money in your pocket.

You’ll also see how having a lawyer can result in you getting more money in your pocket.

    Hey man, i would really appreciate your response for my case, i was riding my motorcycle and a public transportation bus ( PSTA) turned and my line when i was cruising, the bike is completely destroyed. I got the police report and it says that the bus driver is at fault. I don’t have major injuries, nothing broken and my question is how much settlement do you think i should get and i’m also worried about medical bills and i’ve seen in your videos that your clients medical bills are very cheap is it because you negotiate to drop the price?

  15. Grape Juice76

    My mom fell in a store and broke her back and we can't get a lawyer here in Tx to help her….what do we need to do?

  16. WriteIsRight

    Justin, I really appreciate these videos you make. I'm not in Florida and I am not an attorney, nor do I pretend to be. But somehow I got involved in building evidence for complex cases and cases involving large entities, always for individuals who are being mistreated, international, federal and local. So far, I've won all the cases, but only recently did I take on a PI case. The guy was hit by a drunk and did everything wrong to position himself for compensation. Otherwise, I would've sent him straight to a PI. So anyway, I have special knowledge about special cases of many types, and your videos have been helpful for this ONE and only time I've taken a PI case. Thanks!

  17. Hamdan God is great

    Hay so if I had a case from my first attorney and had it for 1 year and lawsuit has been filled from them and then I decided to to get another law firm does the second attorney will still charge me 40% of the lawsuit even though the first law firm they've filled it already ?
