Will it cost me any money to bring a Florida motorcycle accident case?
If you’re involved in a motorcycle accident in the state of Florida and you have sustained injuries, the answer is no. It should not cost you any money up front to file your case. If you contact an attorney and meet with that attorney, that attorney will generally pay the cost during the proceedings of your case including cost to get medical records, expert witnesses, filing fees for the court if those need to be paid, and at the end of your case when you reach a settlement agreement, those costs are then reimbursed to the attorney. As far as the attorney fee, those are generally done on a contingency fee basis and it depends on the amount of settlement as to the amount of the fee. It is generally 33 and 1/3% for attorneys and in litigation it goes to 40%. That is up to a 1 million dollar recovery. Again, if you don’t recover anything then you don’t owe that fee, so it doesn’t cost you any money to bring the claim.
