How Much Does a Florida Personal Injury Lawyer Charge?

After an accident, many people wonder if they are financially able to hire a personal injury lawyer. Legal fees are known to be expensive, and many personal injury victims experience financial hardship. However, most personal injury firms recognize this, and offer payment arrangements to make representation more accessible.

At Vanguard Attorneys, we take our cases on a contingency fee basis. If we do not secure compensation in your case, you will not be charged legal fees. If we do win an award on your behalf, our payment will be an agreed-upon percentage of your final settlement. This arrangement limits your out-of-pocket costs.
