Attorneys in the state of Florida are governed by the Florida Bar. Rule 4-1.5, Fees and Costs for Legal Services outlines the types of fees that attorneys can charge. Personal injury attorneys work on a “contingency fee” agreement, meaning you don’t owe your attorney a dime unless they make a recovery for you. Personal injury attorneys will also cover the costs of bringing your claim. Those costs can be a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars depending on the complexity of the case and whether litigation is required.
