What percentage does a personal injury lawyer take?

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.

Can I get injury compensation?

What is considered a personal injury case?

If someone is injured and the injury was caused by the fault of someone else, in most cases there will be a personal injury case.

The types of cases are extensive – we have assisted in motor vehicle accidents, animal attacks, criminal acts, boating incidents, sporting injuries, toxic exposure and many more.

What is the average payout for a personal injury claim?​

The payouts for personal injury claims are too wide for an average to be of any help. 

One person injured in a car crash may be entitled to $40,000, but someone else injured in the same car crash may be entitled to $2 million. 

The amount of a claim is largely based on the extent of the injuries suffered and the amount of that person’s loss, particularly loss of income.
