A personal injury attorney in Oregon may charge a different amount than another, but for the most part, attorneys in personal injury law will charge a contingency fee. This means that the injured person can often hire an experienced attorney skilled in personal injury law without facing large legal fees up front.
A contingency fee arrangement means that the fees for the attorney will be taken from the final settlement or verdict. Most personal injury attorneys in Oregon also will deduct any expenses they had during the case that they covered. The contingency fee percentage usually varies based upon the experience of the attorney and the stage of the case. At Herron Law, we charge 33% contingency fees if the case is handled before filling the case with the courts.
