What percentage will a personal injury lawyer take from my compensation?
Personal injury lawyers don’t take a percentage – they charge according to the work they perform.
All of the work a lawyer does is to maximize the amount of compensation. If you don’t get paid, they don’t get paid.
Although personal injury lawyers do not charge on a percentage basis, they cannot charge more than 50% of the net settlement amount.
This is called the 50/50 rule and is there to ensure you will always recieve a fair share, no matter the work involved.
You also have access to our no win no fee guarantee which means if we don’t win your compensation claim, you don’t pay our professional fees.
