How Much Will An Attorney Cost?

Most attorneys who believe a case has merit will take the case without payment up front. They will take the case on a contingency basis, which means they will receive a percentage of your award if and when you recover for your injuries. An attorney in Connecticut may only receive a contingency fee up to the following amounts: 33 1/3 percent of the first $300,000, 25 percent of the next $300,000, 20 percent of the next $300,000, 15 percent of the next $300,000, and 10 percent of any amount which exceeds $1,200,000. If you and your attorney agree to a contingency fee, the attorney must put the agreement in writing and provide you with a signed copy. The attorney's out of pocket costs are in many cases not included in the attorney's fees. You should be sure to pay attention to how an attorney will bill you for costs because they can amount to quite a significant sum.
